The very lovely Claire and Dan married at Hampton Court House in August. Their wedding was a dream to work on.
They first saw our flowers at the venue while we were setting up another wedding. We flower 25 – 30 weddings there each year, so we do get a lot of weddings like this!
Claire and Dan’s big day was filled with so many floral touches.
The fragrant bouquets were made up of Memory Lane and Amnesia roses, veronica, stocks, delphiniums, spray roses, dahlias, alchemilla mollis, mint, lisianthus, jasmine and eucalyptus, and the boys wore handtied buttonholes of Bombastic spray roses and wax flower.
Guests were welcomed in to the venue by a flower–filled vintage bike and vases of hydrangeas lining the stairs to the front door. We decorated the fireplaces with bundles of seasonal foliages and candles, with more greenery and hydrangea prettying up the mirror and handrails.
And then there was the hanging flowers in the conservatory. We have made so many flower balls at Hampton Court House now, with each one being so different to the last. Claire and Dan’s was filled with pale pink, pale blue and ivory hydrangea, Amnesia and Memory Lane roses, delphiniums, wax flower, astrantia, snapdragons, snowberries, dahlias, lisianthus, clematis and veronica. My dream colour combination! These flowers ran through all the other displays at the wedding.
We also got to flower the table plan, cake, gold candelabra on the tables, and even the toilets. There was no escaping our flowery fingers!
The wonderful Amy B was in charge of documenting the day. I love Amy’s photographic style. We have been lucky enough to work on a number of weddings together, and she even managed to take a photo of me that I actually like. That doesn’t happen often!
Acclaim Food supplied all things food and drink. We adore working with them – they are are a florist’s dream – and their food is delicious!
Huge thank you to Claire and Dan for choosing us to flower their wedding and Amy for letting me share the fab photos.
