It’s got to be pink!

Gorgeous mixed pink wedding flowers at Pembroke


This wedding was just mega amazing!  Petitte and bijou it may have been when it came to number of guests, but the flowers were just mega mega mega, on all aspects starting with the unabashedly pink wedding colour scheme.  Pretty and girlie and confidently embracing all shades of pink, from pale to hot pinks and even reddish pinks, this wedding packed such a lot of Barbie impact.

If you don’t like pink this wedding would be akin to the Marmite effect in the wedding world, and you should bypass this quickly, before you are overwhelmed from pink over-exposure. But if  you love pink, this wedding will be a joy to explore, with a girlie Cath Kidstone-esque prettiness to it, and beautiful luxe blooms like roses and hydrangeas in decadent abundence 

We used some amazing new varieties that I will now be hooked on forwever – beautifully scented White O’Hara roses and Pink O’Hara roses, huge blooms of All For Love pink roses, and some amazing deep  fuchsia pink Purple Power roses.  The colour combination was just stunning and just reminds me of pretty Cath Kidston textile prints!  Camilla’s bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets all used a fabulous blend of various roses including those amazing O’Hara and All For Love blooms. For the little flower girls we made up pretty baskets with… you guessed it, more stunning roses in.

Four show-stopping tall vase centrepieces, with massive clouds of roses and hydrangeas resting on tall vases with roses and pearls in them, were used first to frame the start and end of the aisle.  Then they became table centrepieces rising up above guests heads and sending heavenly scent around the room. We dressed the window behind the ceremony table with opulent garlands of roses and spray roses, with feathery coral fern, and Host with Style added floaty drapes behind them.  The aisle was lined with romantic petal scatter and storm vases, and the fireplace was  decorated with votives, loose rose blooms and lace-embellished candle holders.

The tables were dressed with raspbery table cloths overlaid with textural vintage lace tablecloths, and pretty raspbery napkins, all from Host With Style who give the most attention to detail to their beautiful table settings, and Camilla had sourced vintage cups and saucers to put her favours in.

I can really say the flowers were just stunning and without a doubt my favourite this year after some already pretty amazing recent weddings!  Luckily the lovely bride, just off to a romantic honeymoon in Venice, was delighted when we caught up with her the morning after the wedding.  It was a real pleasure to see the whole theme coming together and see how the flowers went just so well with the overall table decorations.  It really transformed the beautiful Russell Suite into a magical and opulent vision of pink.   And now that I am hooked on these beautiful roses, I need more rose connoiseurs please! So please if you are planning a vintage wedding, get in touch to see how we can transform your wedding day with flowers to remember forever.
