I knew as soon as I spoke with Emma that her and James's Bristol wedding was going to be
utterly beautiful with an abundance of stunning wedding flowers! The brief was completely up Foxy Buds' street! A very natural whimsical yet luxury look for the wedding flowers. I loved the whole journey from first speaking on the phone, to a fun visit to Goldney Hall Orangery in hard hats right up until the actual wedding day. Creative wedding flowers is our thing! Emma's bridal bouquet was full of texture and colour as were the bridesmaids' bouquets which were the epitome of creative luxury wedding flowers. The lilac sweet peas added an extra layer as did the home grown elements such as mint and honeysuckle. I love growing elements that you just can't get at the flower market.
Emma and James got married at the church in Westbury on Trym where the church and ceremony flowers consisted of natural posies of flowers for pew ends which were then reused at the venue and two large urns full to bursting with flowers and foliage to frame the ceremony. The confetti shot captured by Benjamin Stuart Photography was fabulous with lots of happy faces- I always love the confetti shot.
I'm always so excited to the photos and these from Benjamin Stuart Photography are so cleverly taken with hundreds of special little moments captured forever. Benjamin works on many weddings across the South West of England and is someone I highly recommend. That dress- wow! Every wedding dress is so different, as a wedding florist I have the pleasure of seeing some incredible gowns that are enchanting just like Emma's. Look at the detail!
Emma and James made a quick pit stop at Clifton Suspension Bridge which made for some incredible shots- I can just see one of these looking super slick in their house! Wedding flowers are just one part of a wedding story that I think add that extra something special to the photos and life long memories.
For the wedding reception flowers Emma wanted to create impact so we decided on high and low floral table centres to draw the eye around the room. We added small glass bottles of flowers at the base of the tall table centres to add detail at the table level. Caroline Green from the Planning Lounge worked her magic styling the whole event including tables and chairs with tableware from Prestige Hire a fantastic wedding hire company. We created a plentiful floral runner to decorate the top table which certainly had the wow factor!
The Orangery was the perfect setting on a beautiful sunny day with crisp white walls and a cool tiled floor. Being a wedding florist flowering up lots of weddings across Bath, Bristol, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Somerset, even Devon at times, I always love a venue that accommodates any colour scheme by having that crisp blank canvas. The outside space is just as gorgeous at Goldney Hall where you can have your wedding ceremony and or drinks reception.
Big thanks to Benjamin Stuart for sharing these images.
