Bright and bold – Laura and David’s spring wedding in Sheepscombe, Gloucestershire

Something bright and bold to cheer up what’s been a pretty dull, rainy Monday – pictures of the flowers from Laura and David’s sunny Spring wedding back in April, held in the picturesque village of Sheepscombe in the Stroud Valleys, Gloucestershire. When we first talked about flowers, Laura had chosen her bridesmaid dresses in a bright lime green and a bold coral pink but was unsure whether to keep the flowers very muted and neutral or really go for it with vivid colours to go with the dresses. With the help of a pinterest board for inspiration I selected various examples of the different options and we decided to be bold and go for colour, and I’m so glad we did as the flowers really packed a punch on a sunny spring day!

For Laura’s bouquet I used classic spring wedding flowers such as ranunculus in cerise and coral pink, frilly pink tulips, along with perfect peach David Austin ‘Juliet’ roses, coral ‘Miss Piggy’ roses, wax flower, veronica and lisianthus. The frothy lime green alchemilla mollis and feathery fountain grass added texture and contrast to the bouquet.

The bridesmaids had similar, smaller versions of Laura’s bouquet, without the spires of pink veronica or fountain grass but had little buds from freesia in them.

Laura’s little flower girl had a cute posy version of the girls bouquets in coral, cerise and baby pink colours.

The grooms buttonhole used spring flowers out of the bouquet including tulip, ranunculus bud, veronica, waxflower, freesia buds and a bright yellow ball of craspedia, tied off with twine for a rustic finish. The rest of the groomsmen had similar buttonholes without the veronica.

I also made up flower crowns for all the girls, Laura and her little flower girl had bigger, bright flowers whilst the bridesmaids had simple circlets of waxflowers; both beautiful additions for guaranteeing that special princess feeling on a wedding day! Laura’s crown was tied at the back with pretty ribbons so it could fit perfectly under her gorgeous veil which she assured me she was wearing all day and then everyday!

Laura’s mum did the flowers for the reception venue in the village hall so I’ll leave you with a few more of the bouquets and hope that this colourful Spring wedding has brightened your day!
