Real Life Wedding – April Peachy, Pink Prettiness

Peachy, pink prettiness was the order of the day for the Wedding held at Cain Manor in Hampshire. A venue I have been regularly  decorating with fresh flowers since it first opened ~ over 10 years ago!

peachy,pink roses & tulipsKathryn choose to encapsulate her wedding-day flowers with peachy, pink prettiness. To celebrate the time of year we used seasonal blooms. The flowers co-ordinated from the bridal flowers and the venue decorations through to the table centres. Our floral combination included using tulips, roses, scented stocks, cherry blossom branches and fragrant jasmine trails. The flowers were a heady mix of loveliness!

 

 

 

 

 

Whilst we were busy setting-up the ceremony room with a stunning plinth vase and wonderful wooden pillar garlands. The garlands were complete with tiny white fairy lights ready for the evening party………………

The flowers for the bouquets were picked to subtly compliment the beautiful blue bridesmaids dresses ~ not to compete with them. The Bridesmaids all carried round natural stem bouquets, bound together with satin ribbon.

 

 

 


Kathryn chose to carry a classic shower bouquet of palest dusky pink and ivory roses, spring freesia and scented jasmine trails.

The tables were set up with more peachy, pink prettiness! Beautiful low level centre pieces were placed in clear glass dishes, raising them slightly from the table linen but still low enough to allow the guests clear visibility.
