Picture the scene....a beautiful English summer's day, deep blue skies, wispy white clouds, birds singing softly in the trees and the faintest breeze rustling the lush greenery. Then beyond the gateposts appears the imposing but beautiful structure of a 14th Century castle ruin - peaceful and majestic. This is Old Wardour Castle in Tisbury Wiltshire (http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/daysout/properties/old-wardour-castle/) and the venue for Caroline & Tom's wedding who had flown in from the US for a trip to remember.
We were delighted to provide flowers for this very special day and worked closely with their fab wedding organiser, Matthew Oliver (http://www.matthewoliver.co.uk/) of MO Weddings.
Caroline was very clear that she wanted a loose and informal country look with pale blues and greens for her bouquet and table decorations. She also wanted some big and blousy gypsophila designs at the castle and on the wedding reception table.
The main flowers we used for the bouquet were pale blue delphiniums, blue nigella (we love), ivory roses, cream dahlias, white astilbe and alchemilla. They worked beautifully together. In the castle we placed two tall zinc pots containing large 'clouds' of gyp. These flowers all worked wonderfully in the rustic setting and the 100 jam jars with tealights placed in the walls and on ledges added to the very magical feel.
At the reception venue in Somerset, North Cadbury Court (http://www.northcadburycourt.com/), a long table was set in the garden overlooking rolling Somerset countryside. Three tall glass vases with balls of gyp placed along the centre of the table, together with jam jars, containing flowers to match Caroline's bouquet, looked great.
We really enjoyed working on this wedding. The flowers were lovely to work with and the venues were stunning!
Thank you so much for taking such good care of our wedding flowers. I felt a flurry of joy, excitement and relief when your smiling face popped around my hotel bedroom door. You listened so well and I felt safe in your hands! The flowers were beautiful, they looked stunning and magical
