If you're as head over heels with a blush and grey colour palette for your wedding flowers then you absolutely must take a look at Becca and Phil's wedding at Ufton Court. It had us all oh-ing and ah-ing with beautiful summer colours.
Becca and Phil married at the ever gorgeous Ufton Court way back in July. I've been sloppy not posting this sooner, it popped up whilst I was flicking through my instagram feed. I was reminded how utterly breathtaking their flowers were. Grey and blush has to be an all time winner of a colour palette - its soft, sumptuous and full of romance.
Becca carried the most sublime bouquet, it had everything going for it - scent, size and full on texture. In fact we just grabbed nearly every single flower we loved and arranged it into this bouquet for her. The winning element for me had to be the Quicksand roses. I cannot get over how beautiful they looked. Combine that with the scented mint, ammi majus and sweet peas and we knew this wedding was going...
The weeks just seem to keep rolling by, each one is filled with some of the most beautiful blooms to date - I'm fickle, each week brings a new favourite bouquet or a new floral crush. With only 2 weddings booked in for this weekend, we've also had a moment to catch our breath and write list upon list for the coming weeks floral extravaganzas.
First up were Kelly and Dan, such an amazing chilled out couple. They chose to tie the knot at Herons Barn, which was such a great match to their personalities. Their whole day was about creating a soft romantic vibe with lots of textures, hessian and flowers.
Kelly carried a bouquet of cosmos, dahlias, thistle, nigella, snapdragons, astilbe, sweet peas, lisianthus, scented geranium leaves, lavender, rosemary, purple sage, mint, scabiosa and veronica.
The night before Kelly and Dan's big day I was busy picking things from my garden to enhance the scent. I'm totally obsessed with scented geranium leaves and I knew when I met Kelly and Dan they just HAD to be included.
Next up Rachel and...
I can't wait to share some of the gorgeous images from Becky and Jo's big day at Ufton Court. With my favourite colour scheme of the moment ... peach, white, sage green and hints of soft grey. The arrangements are filled with some of my favourite flowers including Bombastic spray roses, dahlias and ... dare I say it ... peach carnations!
Becky's bouquet was filled to the brim with berried eucalyptus, white dahlias, scented sweet peas, blush Bombastic spray roses, succulents, Majolika spray roses, Apple Tea carnations and softly scented wax flower. I have to admit its one of my favourite bouquets of the season, the soft peach tones are subtle enough to provide a slightly warm blush to the whites. More carnations please!
Wearing nude dresses, the bridesmaids bouquets were a smaller version of Becky's bouquet, with those utterly wonderful dahlias taking centre stage.
I've preached and preached about how much I love adventurous buttonholes and Jo's buttonhole completely sums my rants. Gorgeous soft silver tones from the succulents are complimented with the sweetly scented waxflower and dusty millar.

Hannah visited with her mother, Diane a few months ago to discuss all the flowers for Hannah's big day. Filling me in on all the details including lots of DIY bunting which would be hung throughout Ufton Court. I love setting up wedding flowers at Ufton Court, such an amazing venue and each wedding we do there is completely different! Hannah had chosen a colour palette of peach, blue and yellow, based around the amazing soft lemon bridesmaids dresses and her groom's love of cornflowers.
Bridal bouquet filled with peach Juliette David Austin roses, delphiniums, astilbe, cornflowers, lisianthus, dusty millar, succulents and eucalyptus.
I admit it ... I am a complete David Austin rose-a-holic. This gorgeous Juliette rose is my absolute favourite, teamed with the soft blue delphiniums and deeper blue cornfowers, this is a bouquet I'm seriously considering for my wedding day!
Bridesmaids bouquets were filled with astilbe, delphinium, yellow lisianthus, Apple Tea carnations, dusty millar, cornflowers and eucalyptus.
I always feel a little uneasy uttering the word "carnation" but this soft peach Apple Tea carnation is perfect for weddings, just the...
