Becky approached us with a mood board that perfectly captured her floral dreams. The color palette was a delightful blend of blush and warm peach—a refreshing twist on the classic blush theme that has graced our floral studio and Pinterest boards for some time. While we adore blush, there's something truly special about working with some of our favorite roses (David Austin Juliette, anyone?) and combining them with the bounty of summer.
Becky's bouquet was filled with a medley of our favorites, including those exquisite David Austin Juliette roses, a mix of Quicksand and Azore spray roses, and those perfect David Austin Juliette's. We added a touch of sweet peas, some Queen Anne's lace for that dreamy, airy texture, veronica for a relaxed countryside feel, and eustoma because the peach variety is simply perfection.
The close-up reveals all the feathery, delicate details that are essential for creating a loose, garden-style bouquet.

We believe that the finishing touch matters, so there's no plastic tape here—only satin or silk for that touch of luxury.
Carey Baptist Church, nestled in the heart of Reading, has been the backdrop for several weddings within its congregation, and we've been honored to provide the floral magic for a few of them. The church's vast and imposing exterior gives way to a softer, more inviting interior, despite the slightly challenging peach carpet. With a spacious seating area above and a large stage for the service, we framed the stage with two magnificent floral pedestals that later found their way to Ufton Court.
While we regrettably didn't capture images of the table decor, imagine miniature glass lanterns adorned with flowers, placed on rustic log slices to add to the rustic charm of Becky and Jack's big day. However, we did manage to snap a picture of the cake—a true statement piece adorned with all the flower
