A wonderfully unique wedding at Jimmy’s Farm in Suffolk, this wedding is one I’ll never forget.
With a brief of wild & whimsical flowers, I was tasked with creating floral designs which captured the beauty of a traditional English country garden. To bring this to life I selected seasonal flowers in an elegant pastel tone, using my signature style of floaty blooms across each of the floral elements.
The couple wanted the wild & whimsical theme to continue throughout the personal flowers, including the bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets and buttonholes. The bride wanted her bouquet to stand out against the bridesmaids so we created one which had a base of white / ivory blooms with a hint of lilac, whilst the bridesmaids’ bouquets featured all the pastel colours found throughout the rest of the floral designs.
A & E wanted to make an entrance to their teepee, so we created a broken arch installation which served as a beautiful focal point, but also the ideal backdrop for photos. The venue also had its own wooden moon-arch which we utilised by creating an asymmetric floral installation as a backdrop to the ceremony. We framed the aisle using ‘meadow flowers’ placed at the end of the rows to create the illusion that A was walking through a meadow. Meadow flowers are one of my favourite arrangements to make as it looks like the flowers are growing up from the ground – so romantic and ideal for a rustic or wildflower themed wedding.
THE WEDDING BREAKFAST
Set in the venue’s historic barn, the wedding breakfast had long, wooden banqueting style tables which created a rustic atmosphere. As a result it was important that the table centrepieces complimented the rest of the environment. Continuing the wildflower theme, we opted for small vintage budvases to be placed the length of each of the tables. After the wedding, guests could take home the posies in the vases as a keepsake of the day.
We also moved elements from the ceremony to feature in the wedding breakfast – for example the meadow flowers were moved to become an installation on a small set of stairs in the barn.
