My previous blog was around seasonal whites and greens, this week I’m showing you a wedding around ‘Blush’ which was a huge trend last year and will definitely continue, it just gives pale pink a new spin!
Amy and Oliver had a church wedding at Barnsley Church and the reception back at the beautiful Barnsley House.
Amy and Oliver's brief was romantic and rustic, pretty much to suit the venue which is famous for its’s beautiful gardens by critically acclaimed Rosemary Verey in the 1950’s.
Amy and her bridesmaids had what we call ‘just gathered’ bouquets of Avalance Ivory Roses, Blush Menta Roses, Bombastic Spray Roses (I just love that name and want to burst into ‘Mr Bombastic’ song every time I say it)! Veronica, Wax Flower, Lisianthus, Populus and Eucalyptus foliage.
The ceremony was in Barnsley church next door to the venue where we tied glass jars with flowers to the pew ends and placed two huge pedestals at the end of the aisle, these were all then carried back to Barnsley house by willing members of the grooms party along with two milk churns outside the church doors, the jars were popped onto the tables outside and the pedestals used in the dining room, it’s all about utilizing your flowers!
The wedding breakfast was in the stylish Potager restaurant where the tables were adorned with simple glass jars and bottles with flowers to complement the bridal party that blended in with the subtle colour scheme of the room.
Unfortunately it did rain on the day but Nicola and Glen of Weddings by Nicola and Glen took some stunning pictures in the garden and you really couldn’t tell.
