I cannot wait to share Kelly and Alan’s beautiful bright spring wedding with you today. If you love purples, plum and cerise colours, this barn wedding is definitely for you. Add in my favourite spring flower – ranunculus, and you know THIS wedding is what its all about.
With March whizzing by in what felt like a moment, and a sea of soft pastels, Kelly and Alan’s big day came along and kicked us into full on bright, bold and colourful mode. I adore punchy colours and Kelly and Alan’s scheme didn’t disappoint. Plums, cerise, dusky mink tones and most importantly lots of texture – a florists dream!
Kelly and Alan tied the knot at their local church and then headed to The Olde Bell in Hurley for the big celebrations. We’ve been to The Olde Bell on many occasions and have floralled up so many different schemes over the years but nothing as bold and beautiful as this. Tying the knot at the end of March, we had the pick of the spring flowers to use along with some early summer fleurs making an appearance.
Firstly I have to give a huge shout out to the rather wonderful Kathryn Edwards Photography, who provided all the wonderful images your about to feast your eyes on. As you can see from the gorgeous pictures of Kuofi and Matthews big day at The Olde Bell, Kathryn manages to capture all those details and beautiful intimate moments. One talented lady!
Kuofi’s bouquet was filled with David Austin Patience roses (divine scent!) poppy like anemones, bombastic spray roses, viburnum berries, scented rosemary, ranunculus and vintage pink amnesia roses. I think this has to be one of my favourite colour combinations at the moment, especially with the petrol blue viburnum berries! I love the simplicity of the bouquet, its a gorgeous mix of vintage tones with soft ivory and rustic hints. Kuofi’s bouquet was bound in twine, reflecting the gardens at The Olde Bell, Hurley.
Harriet, Romain and their families first came to see Green Parlour in the depths of winter. Talking through the garden feel they wanted to create and the summer blooms weaving throughout all the arrangements felt like a lifetime away! But finally the time came and below is the outcome of many month planning.
We loved that each arrangement had its own personality, but still following a colour palette theme. This really works for a natural relaxed vibe. Just because a flower is in your bridal bouquet, it doesn’t have to dictate everything!

Bridesmaids bouquets were filled with scabiosa, delphiniums, lavender, sweet peas, lisianthus, English grown roses and grasses.
With the ceremony taking place at The Olde Bell in Hurley, we went all out with the country theme, mix and match vases adorned the tables and large milk churns filled with the most spectacular hydrangeas framed the ceremony table perfectly.
Weeping pear trees marked the entrance and helped transport you into the garden theme of the day.
