It’s always so exciting when an email pops appears in my inbox from the photographer of recent wedding clients with images of my work as although I always try and capture my creations I’m certainly no professional!
So you can imagine I was super-chuffed when Russell Lewis sent me a message with some of the pictures he’d captured of the flowers from Emma and Rory’s September wedding at the stunning Homme House in Herefordshire.
Emma and Rory’s flowers were full of fragrant roses in varying tones from bright raspberry pinks to soft cream-ivory. I also included freesias, waxflowers, veronica, eucalyptus foliage and soft bursts of fountain grass in Emma’s hand-tied bridal bouquet, wrapped with vintage lace.
The boys’ buttonholes were classic roses combined with sprigs of wax flower and eucalyptus; the grooms party had two-tone raspberry roses while Rory’s buttonhole was an ivory rose with a raspberry rose bud and a veronica flower to tie in with the veronica in Emma’s bouquet.
The front door at Homme House was adorned with once of my favourite designs, a pretty heart wreath packed full of the flowers used in the bouquets, along with hydrangeas, dahlias and button chrysanthemums.
Through the front door and into the hall with it’s sweeping staircase, I created some large urn arrangements using hydrangeas, roses and twisted willow and suspended roses in glass baubles from the bannisters creating a simple but striking display.
The couples ceremony took place in The Panelled Room where I added simple pew ends of wicker hearts with a few flowers to the chairs.
The wedding breakfast was held in the light, airy Dining Room, where I placed two arrangements on candlesticks on the mantle piece either side of a gorgeous and huge gilded mirror. The table centres included a mix of flowers used throughout all the other designs in low, whitewashed wooden boxes and were really effective in creative a classic, but relaxed look to the table decor.
Big thanks go to Russell for sharing his stunning images and of course to Emma and Rory for having me do their flowers.
