Blooms and balloons – Jen and Adam’s country wedding at Birtsmorton Court, Worcestershire
Posted on August 21st, 2015
It’s been a crazy busy few months of weddings this summer and it’s showing no sign of slowing into September but I’ve managed to steal a moment go through some images from recent weddings so I thought I’d share some of the flowers from Jen and Adam’s country wedding at the stunning Birtsmorton Court back in June.
The colour scheme was a soft mix of pinks and lilacs in a natural, country style using fragrant summer flowers with dried wheat as a nod to Adam’s farming background.
Jen’s fragrant bouquet was filled with all sorts of seasonal flowers including David Austin garden roses, peonies, snapdragons, freesia, lavender, larkspur, waxflowers, statice and veronica in a natural style hand tie.
The bridesmaids bouquets were smaller version of Jen’s bridal bouquet….
Adam and his grooms-men had classic rose buttonholes given a country wedding twist with a sprig of wheat, waxflowers and foliage. I added a small pink rose to the grooms buttonhole to tie it in with the bouquets.
The ceremony was held at Holy Trinity Church in Malvern where I placed two vintage milk churns full of summer flowers outside the entrance, which were then moved to the reception at Birtsmorton.
The reception was held in the garden room at Birtsmorton Court were the tables were decorated with arrangements in lace effect pots to which I attached ‘hot air balloons’ to give height and link into the couples theme of balloons and blooms! Each table was named after a flower which tied in with the mix of country flowers in the arrangements.
I also arranged some flowers into tea cups to go on the cake table and in another nod to farm life filled some of Adam’s wellies with flowers for outside the entrance to the garden room!
So that’s a quick round up of one of my summer weddings, and in my humble opinion the pretty colour scheme and mix of summer flowers is just right for a country wedding! I’ll leave you with a few more images of the bouquets….
