This wedding at Tournerbury on Hayling Island was so much fun to decorate for. The concept was “make it look like Kew Gardens” so we used lots and lots of different foliages and grasses, teamed with clashing coloured flowers including long stemmed gladioli, huge dahlia, protea, herbs, and a few seasonal stems grown by the brides mum.
As the budget didn’t stretch to palm trees we made them using birch branches set into concrete, then we attached palm leaves and long eucalyptus stems. These were accompanied by potted herbs wrapped hessian and plenty of glass jars, bottles and vases holding seasonal flowers and candles.
The bride and maid had very large, wild bouquets and green flower crowns.
The maids (or rather the brides’ besties) each had a flower crown as did the couples daughter.
What a day it was, we were lucky enough to be invited to the party and it was such a perfect festival of love. We had hog roast, so much champagne the groom had to get to the local shop to buy more, super good and very funny speeches, blankets on the lawn and a great load of tunes from the groom and his friends. Oh and sparklers, marshmallows by the fire pit. Lovely day with lots of friends and mulit generations.
We had the pleasure of being featured on Love My Dress wedding blog, you can go and see more about the dress, the venue etc there.
