Tamsin & Amaury
Springtime in a Cornish Castle …………..
Tamsin and Amaury wanted a mix of colourful Spring blooms for their wedding at Pendennis Castle, and went on to choose a lovely combination of yellow Freesia, with pink Roses, blue Grape Hyacinths and Delphiniums, white Lily of the Valley, pale pink Sweet Pea and pale green Lisianthus, with a subtle spattering of Rosemary foliage throughout.
The Castle itself was kept quite simple with trailing Ivy and candles with small, foliage heavy arrangements atop the barrels for the aisle.
Emmie & Emma
When Emmie and Emma came to me with their ideas of Driftwood tables, I knew exactly what to use to create this look without trawling the beaches for choice pieces of driftwood, washed up on the shore. They loved the idea of using Bogwood instead, with its rich brown colour and texture, and small crevices, which were perfect for attaching clusters of their chosen flowers. They personally chose each piece of Bogwood as well as the pieces that were joined together to create their large ceremony table and sculpture arrangements.
Together with the bogwood, the girls chose a simple pallete of ivory and white blooms; Avalanche Roses, Lisianthus and Husky Germini with an accent of dark blue from the fabulous Eryngium (Sea Holly), and Eucalyptus foliage, perfect for their coastal themed wedding. They continued with the natural look, by bringing in a couple of rustic elements for their bouquets too, which also showed a little of their characteristics – Twisted Willow and natural twine, one being more wild and messy and the other more neat and tidy. Finally a single yellow Rose was used for Emma’s bouquet, in memory of her dad. It was placed at the back of her bouquet, so she could look down and see that he was with her on her wedding day.
