Pretty pastels for a village hall wedding in The Cotswolds
Posted on August 16th, 2016
It’s always lovely to meet enthusiastic and creative couples so when I met up with Sophie & Jon to talk through their ideas for their Cotswold wedding at Bredon Village Hall I knew it was going to be full of fab details and personal touches. Choosing the right photographer to capture all the details is my biggest recommendation for anyone’s wedding so I was doubly sure it was going to be gorgeous when they said they’d enlisted the lovely Sara Beaumont to photograph their day!
Pretty pastel pinks, lilacs and a few purples set the colour scheme for the day and I used a mix of seasonal flowers including roses, ranunculus, freesia, larkspur and stocks along with smaller, filler flowers like gypsophila, waxflower and limonium for a relaxed, natural style.
Sophie had a trailing bouquet which perfectly complemented her amazing Vera Wang wedding dress, while the bridesmaids had a hand tied posy version to match. I made rustic buttonholes of spray roses, waxflowers and gypsophila bound with twine for the groomsmen.
The reception was held at Bredon Village Hall where the couple and their friends and family had worked their socks off decorating and transforming the space! I supplied lots of little primula plants for them to pot up into vintage tea cups, along with buckets of mixed flowers to go in jars for the tables which were combined with runners of ‘grass’ and some cute Easter bunnies as a nod to their springtime wedding. I finished off the floral decorations with a large churn arrangement next to a display of family photographs and a lovely long garland of flowers and foliage along the front of the top table to really make a flowery statement!
