We had the pleasure of providing the most beautiful florals for this Cotswold Marquee Wedding back in July.
From the moment I met Alexandra and her mum Caroline it was clear they had a vision of the day. Their attention to detail was amazing. I was welcomed to the family home and shown where the marquee would be situated. The house and grounds were truly breathing taking, and although it was only 10 mins from the studio I felt like I was in another world. Alexandra had taken the time to put together a montage of inspiration images. We discussed in great detail the look and feel of the day and how the flowers would compliment this. We also looked at other details that would contribute to the wedding, including the type of marquee, stationary, bridesmaids and off course the dress! The overall feel for the wedding was formal, with the gentleman wearing traditional morning suits and the elegant stationary.
It was decided that the floral designs for this Cotswold marquee wedding would be more flower heavy with just a touch of foliage. The colour palette would be ivory, cream, pale blue and a hint of dark blue. Alexandra had a passion for pale blue hydrangeas so these would be a feature flower throughout all the designs. Other seasonal flowers available in July including, garden roses, delphiniums, stocks, spray roses, sweet peas and freesias would all be included.
The Wedding Day
Alexandra and Tom’s wedding day was during the 2018 heat wave and it was a glorious sunny day. Alexandra looked stunning in her custom Sassi Halford dress and her bouquet complimented it perfectly. The bridesmaids dresses were a really pretty pale blue and carried bouquets that matched Alexandra’s.
The little flower girls looked utterly adorable in their pretty white dresses. They carried delicate baskets of flowers and dainty circlets in their hair.
The wedding took place at a local church which we decorated with trailing pew ends and large urns of flowers. After the ceremony we collected these and took them back to the Cotswold Marquee. The pew ends were attached to the entrance canopy and the urns were used either side of the top table.
The sides of this Cotswold marquee were pulled back to allow a breeze through. The team worked hard installing 3 large arrangements on the poles of the marquee and dressing the tables. The tables had a mixture of high and low arrangements on silverware, whilst the top table had a full blown flower runner which was simple stunning.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Alexandra, Tom and Caroline to bring this Cotswold Marquee wedding to life, along with an array of other amazing suppliers.
