Summer Wedding at Pembroke Lodge

Bloomy Country-Garden Flowers

These pretty country garden wedding flowers from last summer, were from one of my favourite summer weddings at Pembroke Lodge.  Pippa & Daniel chose such a pretty colour mix of ivory, pale dusky pinks, peachy pinks and sage greens, it was a pleasure to arrange and suited the venue so well, especially on a lovely summer’s day! Pippa came across us in part by fluke and in part by our paths sort of crossing in the past. She had recently been to a good friends wedding and recognised her friends wedding flowers on our website under recent posts. Having seen our work in real life before, she knew she was in good hands so not long after, here we were, arranging Pippa’s own pretty flowers. For Pippa and her bridesmaids we created coordinating bloomy handtied bouquets of ivory, pale pink and coral pink roses, with spray roses, green lisianthus and wild ammi and astrantia, framed by silvery green eucalyptus foliage. The men wore matching buttonholes of ivory Avalanche roses with blush pink spray roses and berried eucalyptus. Following a church wedding close to home, Pippa and Daniel hosted their wedding reception at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park. For the venue, Pippa wanted an informal style décor, with country house garden flowers in pretty summer colours, which looked lovely against the ivory background of the Belvedere Suite. The main showpiece displays in the Belvedere Suite were two amazing grand urn centrepieces full of summer blooms, used to frame the round head table.   We used tall delphiniums, scented stocks, lots of roses and spray roses, ammi and astrantia, and raised these up nice and tall, on our ivory plinths. For the guest tables, we used a mix of three types of displays – on some we used handtied bouquets in rustic cream water jugs and in lace edged plant pots, while on other tables, we created pretty rings of flowers with vintage bird cages in the centre.

For the top table, as a point of difference, we used an interesting mix of little posies of flowers and small flower clusters in vintage sweetie jars and milk bottles. On all tables, we completed the informal look with an eclectic mix of various votives and candle holders. And finally for the guests comments book table, we created a wild display of flowers, with a bird cage bursting with wild looking blooms, and pretty posies of flowers and candles.


Pippa and her family were so pleased with the results, I am now looking forward to meeting Pippa’s sister this summer to plan her wedding flowers for summer ’16… Thank you so much to Pippa and Daniel for choosing us for your special day!
