Wedding Bells at Bunkers Barn for Mandy & Rob

Wedding Bells at Bunkers Barn for Mandy & Rob

It’s time to look back to a beautiful 2017 wedding at Bunkers Barn. Mandy and Rob chose me as their wedding florist for their rustic barn wedding and I couldn’t have been happier. 

Working to Mandy’s ‘true English Rose’ brief, their wedding flowers were filled with charm and my designs had a very vintage vibe. I love this look for country weddings and it’s as popular as ever. It’s such a pretty, romantic style for weddings, especially during the more sunny months.

And Mandy and Rob really did enjoy a gloriously sunny wedding day. The soft pinks alongside the blush, ivory and white tones were just heavenly and worked perfectly with the relaxed and informal feel of the day.

As always, the bride’s bouquet really sets the scene and Mandy’s featured big, blowsy roses and peonies. Mandy really didn’t want her bouquet to have that very neat, overly structured appearance so we created something that had a looser, ‘just picked from the garden’ vibe. 

The flowers for the couple’s reception followed this style too. Mandy and her mum had spent months searching the local antique centres for vintage terracotta pots. We then filled their fabulous finds with more delicious seasonal Roses, Peonies, and fresh Lavender. Set on the tables against the crisp white linen, the overall look was just perfect.

We’ve been seeing a lot more foliage used in weddings recently and Mandy and Rob embraced this trend too. My favourite element of their floral scheme just had to be the heavenly flower curtain that hung behind the top table. Delicate foliage garlands accessorised with more roses, peonies and carnations too framed the newlyweds during their wedding breakfast. This beautiful decoration provided a stunning backdrop and really made a highlight of the top table.

It was a joy to be part of Mandy and Rob’s wedding at Bunkers Barn and we send them all our love and best wishes for the future.

A White Wedding at Notley Abbey for Laura and Lee

Notley Abbey, a gorgeous wedding venue on the Oxfordshire/Buckinghamshire border, was the setting for Laura and Lee’s big day. Their wedding flowers, as you’ll see, really made a very stylish statement…

Laura and Lee were an absolute delight to work with. They were super excited about their wedding day and chose a black and white colour scheme for the big day. This colour scheme combined bold touches with classically elegant wedding styling and everything came together beautifully.

Laura and her bridesmaids all wore white and Laura’s dress featured an amazing plunging neckline. The groom and groomsmen, on the other hand, wore black suits with sharp white shirts and they looked fantastic.

However, there was definitely a touch of colour to be seen. Laura added a flash of red to her bridal ensemble with her red-soled Louboutin heels. Lee picked up this colour too with his red rose buttonhole, specifically chosen to complement Laura’s shoes!

When we were planning the floral scheme, we decided on white hydrangeas with a scattering of ivory roses to soften the colour palette. Laura and Lee also asked that we use as little foliage as possible so that the overall look was as crisp and clean as possible. Without the greenery, that gentle touch of ivory became even more important because it added just enough contrast to really show the white hydrangeas off at their best.

The tale centres absolutely were true centrepieces in every sense of the word. We used beautiful aluminium candelabras on the guest tables and dressed them with white candles and strings of crystals alongside the hydrangeas, roses, and wisps of Gypsophila. We then dressed the top table with a low central display, flanked by smaller aluminium vases.

I also have to mention the huge flower-filled urns that were a real feature of the day. These gorgeously abundant arrangements were focal points during the ceremony and were then carried through to the reception to be enjoyed all day long. 

And Laura, Lee and all their guests really did enjoy themselves. As did we.
