You know you are going to have an absolute ball with a couple, when in your first meeting the words ‘there may be an element of dinosaur throughout the day’ are uttered and you just happen to be wearing your Tatty Devine Dinosaur necklace.
Lizzie and Tom were to tie the knot at the ever beautiful Wasing Park. A gorgeous venue where you know your bride and groom can really stamp their personalities into the space. Every time we come to do our flower thing, its completely different from ombre,to, well … dinosaurs!
I love every part of the wedding planning with our couples, but the first meetings are always such a joy. I love hearing the little details, the brides (and grooms) having a total brain dump of ideas, and getting excited about all the floral possibilities. From that moment I can’t wait to start making the flowers. I had to wait almost a whole year to get my hands on the flowers for Lizzie and Tom’s big day and I’m proud to say there wasn’t a rose in sight. The brief was seasonal blooms following purples and a plummy aubergine tone. We added in a soft blush to give some softness between the purple and white which always seems a little stark otherwise.
Lizzie’s bouquet was an absolute corker. Several times during the making process I may have wanted to run off into the sunset and renew my vows. I wanted to keep this beauty all to myself! Filled with some of my favourites including scented waxflower, marshmallow ranunculus, jasmine, ferns, eucalyptus, heather, lisianthus … the list goes on!
The maids held a miniature version, again those gorgeous ranunculus took centre stage providing the perfect contrast to their aubergine dresses.
The flower girls held the most miniature posy of ranunculus and waxflower tied with an ivory satin ribbon.
Thank you Lizzie and Tom for letting us be part of your awesome day. Who doesn’t want to be part of a wedding where the bridal march is out and the Jurassic Park theme tune is in!
