Rachel & Aaron's wedding

Rachel and Aaron's fabulous English country garden wedding took place on a lovely sunny day in mid-summer with a church ceremony in Whittlesey followed by a marquee reception at The William Cecil in Stamford - the perfect setting for a wedding of this style. Rachel chose a mix of pretty country flowers in pale dusky shades of lilac, lavender and pink with cream and ivory which worked perfectly with the violet shade chosen for the bridesmaid dresses. Everything looked so fresh and pretty and I just loved working with this mix of flowers and colours. I'm very glad to say that Rachel and Aaron were delighted with the results too!

Here are a few fabulous photos of the flowers kindly provided by Deans Street Photography . And many thanks to Rachel and Aaron for allowing me to share them with you.

A mix of country flowers in dusky colours

The flowers used included dusky lilac Silverstone roses and dusky pink Menta roses, lilac carnations, cream spray roses, pale lilac mentha, lisianthus, asters and dainty gypsophila - just right for creating designs with the 'freshly picked' look that Rachel loves.

The bride and groom outside the church

Rachel looked so gorgeous in her beautiful wedding gown and I loved the fact that Aaron was wearing a shirt to match the wedding colours - just right for the relaxed feel of the day. Rachel even had her nails painted in pale lilac - such a pretty touch!

Bridesmaids wearing violet dresses and carrying their posies

The bridesmaids' dresses were a fabulous shade of violet and I really like the way they wore different styles. I was so pleased when I saw how well the flowers I had selected worked with the colour of the dresses - their posies included pale lilac carnations, dusky lilac Silverstone roses, cream spray roses and gypsophila to complete the country look.

Country style jug of flowers in the marquee reception

The same pretty mix of flowers was used to fill country style jugs to decorate the guest tables - a very simple style which looks just right for a country garden wedding, particularly as the marquee at The William Cecil is surrounded by beautiful gardens where wedding guests can stroll.

Small flower design in dusky lilac and pink for the top table

For the top table Rachel and Aaron decided to have small designs made to match the jug centrepieces, rather than a more traditional long and low spray design - this sort of style makes a great gift for a special guest too!
