The Dorset Wedding Festival 2014

On Sunday I was proud to exhibit at the second Dorset Wedding Festival, this year held in a field at Farmer Palmers Farm Park (where you can now hold a marquee wedding reception!). Organised by the girls from Something Borrowed Magazine, the festival is a mix of great wedding suppliers, live music, food and drinks, all bookable for your big day.

Despite wet weather all week making the site rather muddy, nobody was complaining and lots of brides and grooms-to-be were there in their wellies to enjoy the entertainment and get advice from the pros.

My prep started on Friday; The workshop smelled pretty good…

I decided to fill my stand with vibrant pink and blue summery blooms, including hydrangeas, peonies, sweet peas, delphinium and roses.

I created a sumptuous tall arrangement with miniature glass ball vases suspended from ribbons around the vase, and also some informal jar and bottle arrangements…

Cherry branches were adorned with hanging glass globes with candles inside. Cue ‘action shot’…

A variety of designs show what can be done to create different looks with the same combination of flowers…

Many, many thanks must go to the event sponsors Camelot Marquees, Blue Bay Events, Dorset Dub Hire and Luxury Little Rooms, and also to the parents who lent a hand. It was a fab day… looking forward to next year!
