Poppy and Ed were married in the historic St Boniface Church in Bunbury, as Poppy’s Parents and Grandparents were before her. The theme for the flowers was understated country with a relaxed celebratory feel.
The flowers in the church included stunning spires of Blue Delphiniums, larkspur, stocks, pink and blue hydrangea, spray roses and nigella. Outside the church we decorated the archway over the gateway to greet guests as they arrived. Inside we decorated six large columns flanking the aisle and two stunning milk churns nearer the front.
Poppy had her sister as bridesmaid and they each carried informal posies which were very sentimental as they included flowers from their parents garden. The roots from the lily of the valley in Poppy’s bouquet were given to Poppies parents to plant in the garden after the wedding, as a lasting reminder of the day.
The reception was held in a marquee in the stunning grounds of Poppy’s parents house Roughlow, Cheshire. Flowers here were a mixture of scabious, sweet pea, nigella, pink spray roses, alchemilla mollis and herbs. The beautiful table flowers were set off by an impressive twelve foot long hanging arrangement in the centre of the marquee, This really gave the space the wow factor.
Poppy was very relaxed in the run up to her big day and working with her and her Mother Tish was really good fun and a real pleasure. We were delighted to receive a lovely thank you letter on her return from honeymoon.
You and Abi worked so hard over those few days and made the most wonderful creations – all the flowers were truly stunning and really added to the whole occasion. I loved all the flowers on the tables and in the churns – they were spectacular – and I loved my bouquet and the hair piece you just managed to knock out at the last minute! AND then, of course, the hanging display – what a showstopper that was!
