When I learnt that Josie's father was a landscape gardener during initial conversations with Josie, I knew I was going to love this wedding. Josie and her family love gardens and I always knew this would have an influence on her floral choices.
Following a few discussions, we confirmed that their colour palette would be bright and beautiful, with bold colours and lots of texture and contrasting floral forms.
Josie also wanted to have a long table arrangement, across the length of their top table, resembling something natural, almost meadow-like, yet still in keeping with the bright colours included in the other floral designs. I loved creating this design and we actually used one half of the top table arrangement on the registrar table at their beautiful church. A couple of lavender pew ends also decorated the church altar.
The venue. This was the first time that Ive had the pleasure of working at The Oak Tree of Peover in Cheshire and I was really impressed! Josie requested an assortment of flowers to be placed within glass jars and containers amongst her own table centrepieces of woolly animals, pinecones, mini pumpkins and log slices. The table setups looked really autumnal and the venue complemented them perfectly.
Josie's bridal bouquet and her bridesmaids bouquets were full of colour, containing fragrant Miss Piggy roses, anemones, lisianthus, various foliages, veronica, spherical craspedia, scabiosa, eryngium and clematis. Silk ribbons were added too. The buttonholes and wrist corsages contained the above, but the more delicate materials, tied with rustic twine. They looked wonderful.
This is a wedding I won't be forgetting anytime soon.
Congratulations to you both!
"Well, where to begin... From the moment I was put in touch with Michelle I knew our wedding flowers were in very safe & talented hands.
Michelle is so personable and I very much feel I have known her for a lifetime (in a good way!) Consequently, she knew just what I was after, even with my rather haphazard brief of hedgerows and mismatched colour scheme!
Michelle pulled out all the stops and created the most fantastic arrangements, all the way through from the buttonholes & bouquets to the giant top table display. Sitting behind the top table arrangement is something I will never forget from our day; it was so beautiful, I just couldn’t stop staring at it!
I really can’t recommend or thank Michelle highly enough for both her talent and all the work she put in for us; just exceptional.
You made my Brambly Hedge wedding dreams come true x" - Josie
