A Country Wedding


Laura and Matt's beautiful country wedding took place on a lovely sunny summer's day. Their chosen rustic vintage theme perfectly suited the setting for their special day, with the ceremony taking place in the historic village church in West Deeping followed by a marquee reception in the grounds' of Laura's parents' house. We decided on a gorgeous mix of country-style flowers including plenty of roses, hydrangeas, lisianthus and dainty gypsophila offset with silvery-gre foliage.The colour palette of pale blush pink with cream and ivory perfectly complemented the pale pink bridesmaids' dresses and other decorations.

Many thanks to Laura and Matt for allowing me to share some of their fabulous photos taken by Lee Daniels (www.elegantleecaptured.com). Here is a little taste of the flower deisgns created for their wedding and if you would like to see more do pop across to my featured wedding gallery

Laura with her bridesmaids in blush pink dresses

The mix of flowers Laura chose worked perfectly with the blush pink colour of the bridesmaid dresses. Rose varieties included pale pink Sweet Avalanche (which featured through all the wedding designs), creamy Vendela and gorgeous Bombastic spray roses.

Bride with blush pink bouquet

Doesn't Laura look stunning! I just love her dress and the style went so beautifully with her country style hand tied bouquet, which included touches of dainty gypsophila and feathery astible to give a rustic/vintage look.

Bridesmaids with the little flower girl all in blush pink

How adorable is this little flower girl with her floral circlet, made with spray roses and gypsophila to match the bridesmaids' posies! I just love the pretty mix of colours that Laura chose for her wedding flowers.

Flower arch at West Deeping Church

St Andrew's Church at West Deeping has a perfect archway for decorating with foliage and flowers - a lovely way to greet your guests and provide a framework for some of your photos!

Marquee ready for the wedding breakfast

The marquee was beautifully decorated to suit the style of the wedding and Laura chose to have tall centrepieces on each guest table for maximum impact. A marquee provides a lovely blank canvas so it's easy to create the perfect atmosphere to suit your style.

Tall centrepiece of blush pink and cream flowers

Tall candlesticks gave the centrepieces a vintage feel and these were surrounded by tea lights in 'antique' style silver votives. Flowers used in the centrepieces included hydrangeas, roses, lisianthus and gypsophila with plenty of trailing silver-grey foliage to give the designs a natural country style.

Small silver vases used for top table flowers

Instead of a more traditional long and low spray design, Laura and Matt chose to decorate the top table with a mix of silver vases filled with flowers and interspersed with tea lights in antique-style votives - such a pretty idea and totally in keeping with the overall look of the wedding.

Wedding marquee at night

The celebrations clearly continued into the night! The marquee still looks stunning and I love the way the flower displays from church have been placed at either side of the marquee entrance - it's always a good idea to use your flowers right through the day whenever possible.

Congratulations again to Laura and Matt and I'm so glad that you had a wonderful day.
