Lincolnshire day Wedding

A couple of years ago I did some wedding flowers for some lovely friends of mine who got married on Lincolnshire day, finally here is the blog post about them. 

 The couple were looking for a seasonal country look with red gingham and hessian and gave me quite free rein to do flowers to fit in with this.
In the quaint family church I did some bundle few ends, these are less formal than the full flower, and give a lovely floral look. The bundles were tied with a hessian bow and included, hypericum, poppy seed head, corn and lavender and dried nicely to be kept after the service.

I also did a pedestal arrangement in in-keeping colours to be at the front of the church. 

 On the outside of the church we attached a silk flower garland which looked lovely in photos and just brings the wedding theme outside as well as in.

 For the bridal flowers in was a round loose posy for the bride this is a popular style for the country look and was a nice change to work in deeper colours rather than the always popular pinks. The bouquet had a mixture of flowers including roses, dahlias, skimmia,amaranthus, astratia and gyp.
It was handled with  neat hessian ribbon a favorite for this style of bouquet. 
 A smaller version so made for the bridesmaid and a basket decorated with red gingham ribbon and filled with petals was done for the flower girl.
The buttonholes and corsages kept with the country theme with rosemary foliage and lace ribbon.  The mens buttonholes were also wrapped in paper twine, to tie in the with hessian.
 The other mens buttonholes were made in cluster style with spray roses but the groom was slightly different with a larger single rose.

I did like how the buttonholes looked together in the box ready for delivery.

 For the reception flowers the couple had sourced their own containers which fitted in perfectly with the theme and I filled them with in-keeping flowers. The table centers had large single jars in chicken wire containers decorated with hessian and gingham hearts.
 And there was also some sweet pair of jars on a basket tray for decorating the bar.
 Flowers really complete a theme at a wedding.
 And make a venue look different and special to any normal occasion.

A beautiful autumnal Lincolnshire day for a lovely wedding. With lots of lovely memories with my friends for years to come. Thank you for choosing me to do our wedding flowers.
