If you are getting married in Gloucestershire then take a look at these stunning images by Bullit Photography of an incredibly stylish wedding of Annabelle and Sam back in August 2021.
Annabelle and Sam got married at St Mary's church Frampton on Severn in Gloucestershire which is such a sweet little church and then a marquee in the grounds of Frampton Court. They wanted to welcome guests with a beautifully bright split arch to frame the church doorway. Split or broken arches are a fantastic and more contemporary way to dress a church entrance with wedding flowers. As an experienced wedding florist I know that hydrangeas are at their best in August so we made them the focal flower alongside other seasonal blooms such as luxury garden roses. We were then able to move the split arch to the wedding reception marquee. This can be arranged for some wedding flower arrangements at an additional cost. It looked just as great on the marquee entrance as it did at the church. You may as well get two arrangements for the price of one!
Annabelle wanted a contrast in her very simple but very luxury bridal bouquet to the rest of the wedding flowers. We included various types of luxury scented roses in the bridal bouquet all muted tones. The Quicksand rose was, as always, a favourite! You can see how perfectly the bouquet complimented Annabelle's stylish dress from Miss Bush Bridal.
Annabelle's bridesmaids carried simple but gorgeous bouquets of hydrangea and roses with some foliage to add texture. These worked so well and were great for the wedding flowers budget! Being a wedding florist in Gloucestershire and working with many couples over the years I know how important it is to work to a budget within reason. There are many ways you can ask your wedding florist to keep to a budget whatever that budget is. I work with clients wanting to spend to £1500 to clients wanting to spend £8000 plus.
Annabelle and Sam wanted to create a statement installation in the marquee...we certainly delivered this! We designed a 20 ft suspended foliage and floral installation which created a canopy over the top table in the centre of the Sail and Peg marquee. We hung glass tealights which added an extra special element. This installation created a really magical feel to the marquee- the ultimate in marquee wedding flowers! We used many different types of foliage, pistache, salal, italian ruscus, trailing ivy, asparagus ferns and various types of eucalyptus. So much texture and interest! We used lots of silk hydrangeas which are perfect as they don't wilt in the heat in a marquee especially when up high. SIlk flowers, especially hydrangeas, are so realistic these days and can help keep pricing down. No one can tell the difference!
Marquees are a blank canvas for wedding flowers there are so many possibilities such as canopies, floral chandeliers, decoration around the poles, arches to frame the entrances. It's a good idea to discuss options with your marquee company as they will be advise you on what pulley systems and mechanics they have.
