Amber and Richard got married on a beautifully sunny day in September last year. Their ceremony was held at St Cuthberts Church in Darlington, while their wedding breakfast was at Blackwell Grange Hotel. Amber’s colour scheme was duck egg blue, with sweet pastel tones bought in with her choice of flowers.
Spring is one of the best times of year for beautiful and unusual flowers that you can incorporate into your wedding flowers. Varieties come in an abundance of wonderful colours, textures and shapes: let your imagination run wild, and step away from all rose bouquets…
Florist Vacancy with responsibility for wedding floristry in Darlington, County Durham.
An Exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic florist with previous wedding floristry experience.
It’s all about the flowers for the 2015 wedding season. Marvellous blooms not only transform wedding venues into stunning backdrops for your big day but they can add the final wow factor to your dress. Flowers were much in evidence on the wedding catwalks for this season and anything goes in terms of styling.
Before you go and see your florist, make sure you have the basics of your wedding covered – it’s no good asking for advice on what flowers and types of arrangements to choose if you haven’t got your venue or your colour scheme sorted. It’s also a really good idea to have found that perfect dress; you want your bouquet to compliment your gown.
Hayley and Paul Leech got married on Saturday 10th May last year at the gorgeous Hall Garth Hall Hotel. She wanted a summery mix of flowers in pastel shades in a style that would match with natural materials such as hessian and rope. We went through various different blooms together, finally settling on Sweet Avalanche roses, Memory Lane roses, ivory spray roses, Million Stars gypsophilia, lilac freesia, dusty pink lisianthus, waxflowers, thlaspi and eucalyptus. This mix of flowers was used throughout Hayley’s wedding, filling little vintage jars for the table-centerpieces. I’m going to let Hayley and the pictures do the rest of the talking – all photography by GASP.
Seeing as it’s almost Valentine’s Day, I wanted to share with you my favourite ever red rose wedding that we’ve done…
