Emily and Paul’s vintage glam wedding

wedding flowers Berkshire Green Parlour

Emily and Paul came to see the Green Parlour wedding team over a year ago to start talking about all their ideas for wedding flowers.

Brides-to-be take note! we love brides who have an ideas book or ‘look book’ its great to start visualising ideas together and means that from the off we can start discussing the type of arrangements that will compliment everything from your dress to your venue. You don’t even have to have images of flowers (that’s kind of what we’re here for!) but anything from your save the dates, to weddings that you’ve seen on all the amazing wedding blogs out there and magazines. Basically we want to see images of what YOU have fallen in love with.

Emily came to us with a book packed full of gorgeous glamourous, vintage images. Pearls were in abundance, with dusky roses, mercury glass tea lights, some quirky ‘Mr and Mrs’ letters and heaps full of 40′s glamour. Heaven or what?

We designed the bouquet to reflect all these gorgeous ideas, with a slight country twist. The wedding bouquet contained soft Amnesia roses combined with Bombastic spray roses (queue the inevitable renditions of the song by Shaggy), scented ivory sweet peas, ivory Majolika spray roses, Upper Secret roses, subtle hints of eucalyptus and wired pearls, nestled between the flowers. The bouquet was bound in a ruched nude satin ribbon, with large pearls lining the length.

The reception was held at Warbrook House near Hook in Hampshire. Set in stunning grounds, Warbrook House was the perfect backdrop for the soft sage greens, vintage pink and ivory flowers we had planned. The reception room needed some height, each table centre was placed upon a tall lily vase with a country dome of flowers sitting on top. These stunning table centres filled with white delphiniums, Memory Lane and Amnesia roses, hydrangeas, eucalyptus and Bombastic spray roses, tied the whole theme together, adding a splash of Emily and Paul’s day to Warbrook House.
