Summer Wedding Flowers in Pink & Blue with a feature Moongate for the ceremony
THE BRIDAL BOUQUET & PERSONAL FLORALS
Steph and Andy were married in July at the Fairfield House Hotel, Ayr. Steph requested big seasonal blooms in blue and white with pinks to tie it all together. Her favourite flowers were peonies and as it was the beginning of July, Scottish Peonies were just about still hanging in there. The huge feature pink peonies are actually from my own garden.
Steph had two bridesmaids and a flower girl; I created miniature versions of her own bouquet to create a complete set.
The buttonholes feature thistles for the groomsmen and women’s corsages pink roses.
She had jam jars filled with gorgeous blooms, placed on rustic log slices.
The real piece de resistance (other than the bouquet) for me however, was the ceremony piece, instead of an arch we created an asymmetric moongate with those blues, whites and pinks all with the freshest seasonal flowers.
I never use floral foam so the flowers are all tucked into chickenwire tied on with cable ties. On a base of beech and birch sit the most abundant summer blooms. I’ve used a mix of imported: roses, delphiniums, tanacetum (daisies) and wild grasses with my own garden grown flowers; scabious, cornflower, peonies, and that gorgeous floaty ammi.
REPURPOSING THE CEREMONY FLOWERS
I also created a long and low arrangement which was used for the sign table. We then repurposed the ceremony flowers for the reception when this was used as the top table flowers and the moongate was taken behind the top table as a back drop. The moongate was even moved a third time when it was placed as a feature piece in the corner for the evening to make way for the dance floor and band!
