Katie & Andrew’s Beautiful Church Ceremony

I was so chuffed when Katie asked me to make her wedding flowers- she is a professional singer and performs at lots of weddings herself, so she sees a lot of flowers! The couple decided to have their big celebrations in France, but wanted a small family ceremony in England too, so I provided florals for their intimate wedding at Kingston Lacy church.

Katie asked for a neutral ivory and cream colour scheme to keep things simple. Her bouquet was a little bit wild and rustic, with lots of mixed foliage, roses and gypsophila…


All of the guests were given a buttonhole to wear. I stuck around to help put them on as this can be a fiddly task (blog post on how to wear buttonholes coming soon!). Andrew looked super-dapper in his well cut blue suit. I love the current blue trend for gents.


The church itself is so pretty. Cute, perfectly kept and squeaky clean. I was moving the decorations back Andrew’s parent’s house after the ceremony, and it was lovely to sit outside on the grass with two church ladies who were there to open up. Thanks for the coffee girls!


An urn full of flowers provided a focal point added freshness inside the church…


All the windowsills were dressed simply with glass hurricane vases and candles, and I hung these lovely vine hearts decorated with flowers and ribbons on the ends of the pews.


Can’t resist showing you this pic of the bride arriving. Her dress was so gorgeous and it was great to see the bouquet with the whole outfit.


So all-in-all, a rather lovely Monday morning it was. Congratulations Katie and Andrew. Can’t wait to see the photos from what I’m sure was a humdinger of a French party!
