Ufton Court, Wedding Flowers

A Country Garden Wedding at Ufton Court

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...

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.

Bridal bouquet filled with peach Juliette David Austin roses, delphiniums, astilbe, cornflowers, lisianthus, dusty millar, succulents and eucalyptus. I admit it ...

Talking through the garden feel they wanted to create and the summer blooms weaving  throughout all the arrangements felt like a lifetime away!

Zoë and Ben’s Gorgeous Romantic Barn Wedding

Zoë first contacted us almost a year ago to start thinking about the flowers for her wedding taking place in The Black Barn, Rushall Farm. The barn is stunning, set in the middle of the Berkshire countryside with fields as far as you can see. With this stunning backdrop, we took full inspiration from the barns surroundings when designing the bridal bouquet and table centres for the wedding. Zoë's wedding bouquet was filled with English grown roses, scented stocks, sweet peas, lisianthus and hints of scented Baby Blue eucalyptus, it certainly smelt amazing! Collections of old glass jars filled the long banqueting tables in The Black Barn, each filled with a miniature hand-tie of flowers. Queen Anne's Lace is complimented with scented stocks, English grown roses, garden sedum, alchemilla mollis, eucalyptus, mint and agapanthus to create these wild, garden inspired wedding table centres. The final touches involved winding ivy and fairy lights around the rustic centre pillars in the barn. Gorgeous
