Evelyn and Mark’s colourful wedding at Hellens in Herefordshire
Posted on May 27th, 2018
As you all know by now I love a colourful wedding, I particularly love blues, corals and bright cerise pinks. Evelyn and Mark chose to include these colours along with paler pinks, peaches and orange, as a hint to Evelyn’s Dutch upbringing and the result was a wedding full of bright, happy flowers!
Weddings at the end of May can include some of the loveliest flowers, having the best of both worlds with the end of Spring flowers and early Summer flowers too. I included spring blooms like ranunculus, anemones and tulips (another little Dutch link) as well as stunning summer flowers including garden roses, peonies, cornflowers and geums – those little wild-looking orange flower which really added texture and movement to Evelyn’s bouquet.
I made Evelyn a flower crown for a summery, boho look whilst the groomsmen wore colourful rustic buttonholes. Evelyn’s bridesmaids all wore little wrist corsages of bright blooms.
The ceremony was held in the couples local church in Forthampton which I decorated simply inside with little pew ends and a couple of churn arrangements up by the alter which they then moved back to their recpetion venue at Hellens Manor in Much Marcle, Herefordshire – in their awesome old classic VW camper!
The stunning barn at Hellens lent itself to rustic, relaxed decor so the table arrangements were kept simple with kilner jars of flowers on the guest tables. The top table was decorated with vintage bottles of flowers and I also hung lots of colourful blooms behind for a bit of a statement backdrop. I also added some fab hanging hoops of foliage and flowers from the wooden beams which added a bit of fun and detail in the open space of the barn.
I also added some other fun little details to this colourful wedding including filling some Dutch clogs that Evelyn had provided with some brightly coloured blooms. I had fun creating some LOVE letters of foliage and flowers; which Mark had cleverly made a base for, top groom skills!
I really loved working with Evelyn and Mark on their colourful wedding. There was so much fun and happiness and Nikki, their photographer has captured all the joy perfectly. You can see more of her work on her website at www.nikkismoments.com
Thanks go to this lovely couple for trusting in my creativity and choosing to have a relaxed, colourful wedding. I hope you’ve enjoyed looking through the images of the florals as much as I enjoyed making them! I still have some fab images to get on my blog from 2017 weddings so do keep an eye on my page for more in due course…… the meantime you can find more blog posts with summery flowers here including a few more colourful weddings! Enjoy xXx
