Last week we decorated a gorgeous wedding at Hintlesham Hall. Stunning Ranunculus, Anemones, Tulips, Narcissus, Hellebores, Amaryllis, Freesias.....softly filled Rose bowls. By using mainly whites with a few subtle shades and tones around this it created a very sophisticated look with spring flowers. Colour and containers make a huge difference to the overall style....a jumble of flower colours and simple style containers e.g. jam jars create a more informal look....but a single colour or limited palette and more sophisticated containers create a more luxurious look. Depending on your choice of venue the style of your arrangements needs to reflect the decor of your venue. Here the more formal setting of Hintlesham Hall showed these beautiful arrangements off perfectly. I was so thrilled with the Anemones which came from Julie's glasshouses at Lingwood. The Ranunculus were from Cornwall and Tulips from Jo Munson in Lincolnshire...The arrangements also included my Hellebores and Amaryillis plus some of my Narcissus and some from Cornwall.
The bride had a lovely trailing cascade bouquet but as usual my photographs were not fabulous. Hopefully the professional photographer will share some and I can show you what we have been up to!!
After a career in the Health Service and then time bringing up my family, I qualified as a florist and trained in horticulture. Developing a passion for growing and arranging British garden flowers, I planted a Suffolk cutting garden. Having become increasingly concerned about where and how flowers are grown coupled with a love of British flowers. I now specialise in growing and using beautiful British grown flowers to make artistic designs. for weddings, events and gifts.
