Garden roses for a sunny spring wedding at Elmore Court
Posted on June 8th, 2017
Weddings at Elmore Court are always pretty special, the stunning house and grounds, amazing Gillyflower and awesome Team E, it’s not hard to see why Elmore is one of my most favourite venues to create wedding flowers for! Add in early season sweet peas and gorgeous garden roses from The Real Flower Company on a sunny spring day and S&C’s big day promised to be a beautiful one! I had my lovely friend Hannah, from Hannah Buckland Photography to come along and help me set up, and whilst she was there she also captured some behind the scenes images of me in flowery action!
Sarah’s bridal bouquet was packed full of fragrant garden roses including Prince Jardiniere, Peony Pink, Pink O’Hara and the vibrant cerise Yves Piaget. I also added in hot pink sweet peas, lisianthus, freesia and parrot tulips. her maid of honour and flower girls had posies of spring flowers including ranunculus, tulips, lisanthus as well as roses in softer, pastel pinks.
The entrance to the main house at Elmore was decorated with two large urn arrangements full of pretty pink flowers and vibrant green foliages. I also lined up hurricane vases with candle down the steps.
Inside the ceremony hall, I created another large urn arrangement to go on the marble table at the front, and decorated the chairs with little pew ends of gypsophila. I also put a couple of the table arrangements on the piano and the registrars table which Team E then moved back into the Gillyflower after the ceremony. Outside the house I decorated the railings with groupings of flowers, ready for the newlyweds to have some portrait shots after the ceremony.
Inside the Gillyflower was set up with long trestle tables, but given a classic look with crisp white tablecloths and my tall silver candelabras. Between each candelabra was a low, rounded arrangement on a small glass stand, using lots of those perfumed roses in pastel pinks and the occasional pop of cerise, along with bright green foliages to add colour to the room. It’s a bit different from my usual rustic style but really liked the effect of lining up lots of arrangements (24 in total!) between the candelabras, giving a full and luxe look while staying classic and elegant, I hope you do too!
