Back in the Summer of 2013 Eleanor came to visit me with her Mum and a bridesmaid or two to discuss her wedding flowers. I’d met Eleanor a couple of times before as she was Maid of Honour for her elder sister Grace whose flowers I also had the pleasure of doing a couple of years ago.
Eleanor and Adam were planning a navy and pink themed wedding, with a hint of sparkle, saying their vows in the village church where they live and celebrating at the stunning 12th Century built Notley Tythe Barn near Long Crendon.
Having a large bridal party – Eleanor has 3 sisters and wanted to include her best friends too it was important the flowers were versatile and the bridesmaids bouquets soon became the table decorations. The bouquets were made up of shades of pink roses, bouvardia, lisianthus, tanacetum daisies and some gorgeous foliages. They were placed into simple glass vases to become table centres.
Eleanor’s bridal bouquet was inserted with some tiny diamante butterflies and the handle was studded with tiny diamantes. These reflected the gorgeous sparkle detail on her dress and on the bridesmaids dresses too. I adore Eleanor’s dress and I am pleased to tell you it came from the very lovely Maddie at the award winning Bicester Bridal – if you are still looking for your dream dress book an appointment at the boutique!
The Mum’s had gorgeous traditional corsages of lisianthus, astilbe, roses and freesia which we always supply with magnets – we’d hate our beautiful flowers to snag a pretty dress!! And remember with corsages, ladies are always worn on the right, because we’re always right!
A beautiful day – thank you so much for allowing me to share the pictures that; Jon Philpott of Wedding Belles Photography captured so beautifully for you. If you’d like to see more of Jon’s photography please visit www.wedding-belles-photography.com
