Blushing Bride!


Pale blush pink is always a popular colour with my brides, but I particularly loved the way Sasha chose to use it, mixed with blowsy white and ivory blooms in full round designs with minimal foliage. This style worked particulalry well with Sasha's gorgeous full-skirted gown and the colours were a perfect match for the pretty blush pink bridesmaid dresses.

Sasha and Lloyd's wedding took place on a beautiful spring day - always good to see thee sun shining on my happy couples! And I'm very grateful that they have allowed me to share some of the fabulous photos from their special day, taken by Georgi Mabee (www.georgimabee.com). If you love the look of this wedding you can see more photos in my featured wedding gallery.

Pale dusky pink and white flowers

Flowers in Sasha's beautiful bouquet included white hydrangeas, spray roses and ranunclus with pale dusky pink Menta roses and blush pink Bombastic spray roses.Touches of dainty gypsophila lightened the overall effect. 

White and blush pink bouquet

Sasha was keen to have a big bouquet in a full round shape and with softly blended  colours - I think this fits the bill!

Sasha with her bridesmaids

The bridesmaids carried posies made with the same flowers as Sasha's bouquet, but with Sweet Avalanche roses too to pick up the pink of ther dresses - don't they all look gorgeous!

Silver heart flower wands

Silver heart wands were decorated with blush pink spray roses and touches of gypsophila - perfect for the pretty little flower girls!

Rose and gypsophila buttonholes

And not forgetting the men.... Lloyd wore a special buttonhole made from roses matching those in Sasha's bouquet, with his groomsmen wearing sprays of gypsophila.

Wedding reception at the Haycock Hotel

The reception took place at the Haycock Hotel and we filled the reception room with a mix of tall and low centrepieces to create maximum impact, choosing flowers in the same range of pale colours. Sasha and Lloyd provided their own vintage-style hurricane lamps, which I decorated with circles of flowers chosen to match those in the wedding party designs.

Blush pink tall centrepieces

Tall centrepieces were made on glass vases, with huge balls of flowers including hydrangeas, roses, ranunculus, freesias and gypsophila - perfect for creating impact!

Glass domes filled with flowers

There were lots of special finishing touches too, with little vases of flowers and some fabulous glass domes.The domes provided me with a bit of a challenge, but I think the result was worth it - I love unusual touches, which help to give the occasion a unique feel.

Bride and groom share a precious moment

Many congratulations to Sasha and Lloyd and it was so lovely to play a small part in your perfect day.
