Wedding flowers for a Florist
In September of last year Fabulous flowers had the honour of creating the flowers for Daisie and Chris' wedding, Daisie is one of our lovely staff members in Abingdon so we wanted to do her proud! We started by looking into Daise's favourite flowers and the style she wanted to go for. Chris has a background in Dairy farming and this was a key feature throughout the wedding, we played on this theme by using, delicate, meadow type florals throughout.
Dasies wedding bouquet was a long trailing English meadow of secret garden roses, purple clematis, Lovely Lavender spray roses, ice blue oxypatalum and of course...Tanacetum Dasies. With the slight tone of pale blue added, this tied in with the bridesmaid dresses seamlessly. Using Jasmine veiling over the top of the bouquet, this created a tumbling, delicate English garden bouquet.
With a nod to the Dairy farmer theme, the large displays for the ceremony were arranged in Old vintage Milk churns stacked onto aged apple crates for height. Ammi majus, daisies and green bell, give the relaxed country look.
Daisie completely left her trust in our hands when it came to the table centres and we decided to go for a mixture of low and tall arrangements, this is to add interest at all heights when you walk into the wedding breakfast. These tall, tree like Arrangements are made on Apple branches packed with late summer foliage and with a little touch of daisy. Milk bottles filled with a selection of the bridal flowers around the base meant that the flowers could still be viewed while sat down.
Whilst on a site visit to Sudbury House, Matthew and Gary spotted the staircase would be a lovely extra to decorate as a surprise for Daisie. This would mean that when Daisie was on her way to the ceremony it would look and feel as if she was walking through a soft meadow.
