Great Fosters Spring Wedding – Sky Blue Wedding

Ivory & Sky Blue Wedding Flowers at Great Fosters


This beautiful ivory & sky blue wedding at Great Fosters, was so beautifully captured by Jessie Papassava Photography, I just had to share it!  The light for the April wedding was so soft and beautiful, a rare one for spring!. 

The wedding was held at Great Fosters hotel where we’ve been recommended suppliers now for nearly 15 years, and every wedding I do there is like going home. There is something so comforting about the venue, the light and airy Orangery is balanced by the cosy feel of the Tithe barn, and the whole venue, bedrooms included, are a wonderful mix of centuries-old character with modern additions to give the best of both worlds.  I always like to reflect that mix of lightness and belonging in the flowers we create at Great Fosters, so that it really suits the venue.  With this sky blue wedding, we wanted the colour scheme to be delicate and fresh, just like spring itself!

Hayley & John’s ceremony took place in the Orangery, which was dressed beautifully with a statement rustic arch, pretty aisle posies of lacey gypsophila, and romantic candlelight and petals down dressing the wedding aisle.   Making the most of the guest table centrepieces, we put them all to good use to give additional floral decor in the Orangery and easily and cost effectively elevate the look.  We dressed the ceremony table with candlelit lantern wreaths which were low table centrepieces, and we flanked the wedding aisle with dramatic tall table centrepieces placed on our plinths.   The gold props themselves added a lovely warmth and ambiance to the wedding so if you like them, please check out our wedding props section.   Additional candlelight and little touches always make a big difference to a wedding, the devil is at they say, in the detail.  

For Hayley’s beautiful ivory and sky blue wedding bouquet, we used a gorgeous mix of roses and spray roses, white and black anemones, blue muscari (which are part of the spring flowering blue-bell family), lisianthus, silvery brunnia berries and eucalyptus, and we matched it for the bridesmaids.  For the centrepieces, we used a blousy opulent mix of hydrangeas, roses, lisianthus, spray roses, and blue delphiniums and muscari, but we kept it relaxed and informal, and a bit organic, both in the style of the displays themselves but also by adding plenty of sage green eucalyptus, my favourite go-to choice of foliage just at the moment.  With subtle accents of warming gold coming from the tall geometric stands and the lanterns, the effect beautifully suited this time of year and added a nice inviting and warm ambiance. 

We are recommended florists at Great Fosters and have a lot of experience of working with the venue.
