Roses symbolise true love and are a favourite flower for weddings throughout the year, never more so for a wedding on the most romantic day of the year – Valentines! Although traditionally red roses are given to your loved ones, it doesn’t hurt to ring the changes so when Julie and Pete chose a pretty palette of blush pink and ivory roses for their Valentines Day wedding at The Kingscote Barn, I was more than happy to oblige.
The couple chose the fabulous Theresa Furey to capture their day in her signature fine-art approach to photography which perfectly complemented the classic, romantic style of their day.
For Julie’s classic handtied bouquet I used some stunningly beautiful David Austin garden roses, including ‘Kiera’ and ‘Patience’. I also used Avalanche, Sweet Avalanche, Vendella and spray roses along with silvery-green eucalyptus foliage.
The bridesmaids bouquets were a smaller version of the bridal bouquet whilst the flower girl held a single stem of a stunning David Austin garden rose.
Pete and his groomsmen had simple rose buttonholes with a little spray rose, whilst the ladies had a rose with a sprig of pink gypsophila for a pretty feminine feel.
Back at Kingscote Barn the couple chose to go with classic candelabras to add romantic candlelight and I created low, wreath-style arrangements around the base with a mix of roses, gypsophila and lush foliages.
The top table was dressed with a traditional long, low arrangement, with pillar candles for a romantic glow.
The final piece-de-resistance was to adorn the simple white wedding cake with layers of beautiful roses, which looked stunning.
Thank you to the lovely couple Julie and Pete for letting me share their day at the beautiful Kingscote Barn wedding venue; and to Theresa Furey for allowing me to share these images, you can find more of Theresa’s work on her website at www.theresafurey.com
