Pink Perfection!


Amy and Chris's summer wedding took place at the Priory Church at Deeping St James. A beautiful setting and luckily the sun was shining on this happy couple. I really enjoyed filling the church with gorgeous flowers in shades of rose pink, cream and ivory. We chose masses of stunning roses with blowsy hydrangeas and touches of dainty gypsophila to create soft and natural-looking designs to reflect Amy’s preferred style.

Many congratulations to Amy and Chris and thank you so much for allowing me to share some of your fabulous photos taken by Nigel at www.acsphotography.com. Here are a few of the flower designs I created for the wedding and you can currently see more on my featured wedding gallery too. 

Bridesmaids in pink with their flower posies

Amy’s bridesmaids wore dresses in a lovely shade of rose pink and I was lucky to find roses in an exact match. These were mixed with roses, lisianthus, freesias and gypsophila in a range of pink, cream and ivory shades to give the flower designs depth – I just loved the effect!

Bride with hand tied bouquet of ivory and pale pink flowers

Amy’s beautiful hand tied bouquet was kept paler than the bridesmaid posies and was full of gorgeous roses in soft shades of pale pink, cream and ivory. Touches of silver-grey foliage helped to give the designs a natural feel and the dainty gypsophila worked perfectly with the detailing on Amy’s beautiful gown.

Large floral displays were used to frame the front of the church where the ceremony was due to take place and pretty bunches of gypsophila were used to decorate the pew ends. The large arrangements were later moved to the marquee so that they could be enjoyed throughout the day.

The bride and groom

Don’t Amy and Chris look happy and I just love that gorgeous dress! Not to leave the men out, they all wore buttonholes of creamy Vendela roses with sprigs of gypsophila, which worked perfectly with the girls’ flowers.

Marquee reception decorated with pink and white flowers

Following the church ceremony there was a marquee reception in the gardens at Amy's parents' home, which made such a beautiful setting. The table arrangements were a mix of tall and low designs, with fabulous designs on tall glass vases creating impact and low designs adding extra interest, so that the marquee seemed to be filled with flowers.

I loved the mix of flowers that Amy chose to work with her rose pink and ivory colour scheme, including plenty of roses in shades of soft pink with touches of dainty gypsophila to keep the designs looking soft and natural, which suited the lovely relaxed feeling Amy and Chris created for their special day. Truly stunning!
