A pop of colourful wedding flowers

Laura & Tim’s Pennyhill Park colourful wedding flowers


I met Laura towards the end of the dreaded C—d word and lockdowns, when everyone was a bit fed up with a boring life with less fun, so Laura’s theme for Pennyhill Park colourful wedding flowers struck a nice note with me.  Laura’s favourite colours are Barbie pink and purple, the purple after her favourite tipple – Whitley Neill’s Rhubarb & Ginger gin which comes in a lovely vivid purple bottle.  Here was a woman after my own heart and the rest, as they say, was history. 

For Laura’s colourful flowers we created beautiful colourful bouquets with a happy mix of deep Cadbury purple and bright pinks, with accents of dusty pink, blush and plum.   Tim and his groomsmen wore buttonholes of Avalanche roses and deep purple lisianthus, and the bridesmaid and flower girl matched with Laura’s bouquet and looked lovely in pale dusty pink dresses giving the flowers the neutral backdrop to shine. 

Laura & Tim were married at St. Andrew’s Church in Frimley and we decorated the lovely old church simply with pops of colour from pew end posies down he aisle.  The lucky wedding guests, blessed with beautiful June sunshine, then boarded the fabulous red London wedding bus and arrived at Pennyhill Park for the wedding reception, ready to have a fantastic day and evening.  Photos and canapés and drinks were served outside in the beautifully landscaped terrace gardens and the the wedding breakfast was held in the lofty Balmoral Suite at Penyhill Park.  Laura and Tim’s faces full of joy as they entered the Balmoral and saw how fabulous the room looked, was a real joy to see in photos. 

The room was boldly dressed with a mix of tall and low floral centrepieces full of colourful wedding flowers in hues of deep purple, plum, pink and dashes of ivory and cute mini Gin bottles were there to remind us of the inspiration for this fun theme. Each table had names and favours of well known gins – Tanqueray, Sipsmith, Bombay Saphire, Silent Pool, Hendricks, Gordon’s , Edinburgh and Whitley Neill, and the top table was names after their favourite – Tanqueray.  

For the colourful wedding flowers centrepieces we used a mix of blousy hydrangeas, roses, scented stocks, lisiathus and spray roses in bold shades of jewel toned purple and pinks, with sage green eucalyptus for contrast.  Elegant silver glassware added the finishing touches and to complete the look, the pretty church posies were brought back and repurposed, along with the bouquets, to dress the long top table. 

I hope love enjoyed the uplifting photography by Red Door Photography in Camberley.
