White & Blue Wedding flowers in Surrey
We are venue recommended florists and have arranged many stunning wedding Great Fosters wedding reception and ceremonies flowers over the years. This past weekend we arranged the Alexa & Simon’s church ceremony flowers and Great Fosters wedding reception flowers. The sky may not have been the ‘sky blue’ that we had all hoped for but that didn’t stop it being an amazing start to the day.
My day started very early with a set up of the Great Fosters Hotel wedding reception flowers and by the end of that it was finally late enough to find Alexa to take over her bridal flowers without the risk of actually waking her up. When I met with Alexa it seemed that really absolutely nothing could put even a tiny kink in her upbeat and relaxed outlook. And I think that judging by her beaming smile, the flowers may have helped take the edge of the possibly sunny – possibly rainy mix of weather the day promised to hold. After that I headed over to nearby Lyne & Longcross Church, a short hop away from our workshop. So on both fronts familiar and beautiful places to work our magic on.
Alexa wanted a fresh and light mix of white and accent blue wedding flowers, with light sage green eucalyptus foliage, and was conscious that while she wanted to flowers to echo the bridesmaids blue dresses, she didn’t want to be too heavy handed with the blue, as it looks too cold and recessive in photos sometimes if used heavily. Alexa and her bridesmaids all carried bouquets of Avalanche roses, ivory spray roses and scented pale blue muscari with touches of silvery green eucalyptus. The men’s buttonholes matched the scheme, with pretty muscari to add a splash of pale blue to the classic ivory roses.
For the church, we welcomed guests at the lych gate and the pews with pretty ‘fleur’ buckets spilling over with roses, muscari and eucalyptus. And to frame the wedding ceremony we arranged 2 amazing ivory and sky blue urn displays with tall delphiniums, lots of roses and hydrangeas, scented stocks and lisianthus – the percent blend of white and blue wedding flowers for a summer wedding.
Over at Great Fosters, the guest table centrepieces were dressed with a mix of tall vases and low storm vases in ivory and sky blue, with roses, hydrangeas, lisianthus, muscari and delphiniums. The large oval top table was dressed with a series of low vases holding the 5 bridesmaids bouquets fresh…. A lovely and fresh colour mix made this a pleasure to arrange!
