It was a delight to work with Jennifer and Michael for their wedding flowers at Matfen Hall last month.
Wanting to use flowers to compliment Jennifer’s incredibly gorgeous and delicately detailed bridal gown we used blown Ivory Avalanche Roses, hand tied with wisps of Baby’s Breath. It worked so well. Jennifer was a most beautiful bride. Bridesmaids held smaller versions of the Brides bouquet. Jennifer had her bridal bouquet tied with a wide fine ivory lace and the bridesmaids with navy blue organza to match their gorgeous navy dresses. Buttonholes and corsages were big blown Ivory Avalanche Roses with small sprigs of Baby’s Breath. Beautiful.
For the reception tables we wound deep green ivy around and up silver candelabra and tied in more Ivory Avalanche Roses. For the top table we created a beautiful big table arrangement that was a special statement, but not so large that it obscured the guests from seeing one another.
We arranged the candelabra on site and the staff at Matfen were wonderful with us, giving us space to prepare and arrange. It took us almost 2 hours to arrange the candelabra as there were a lot of roses to tie in. Our time and effort paid off as the final result was stunning. The reception room was so gorgeous, I got a lump in my throat just looking at it all quiet and grand, waiting for the wedding party to arrive and fill the space with love and happiness and celebration.
There is something so special and humbling about being a wedding florist. To be able to be a part of a couple’s big day is very special. To be a part of the feeling of anticipation and joy of a couple’s future together and to feel you added something beautiful to their celebration is wonderful.
Jennifer sent us a lovely email after her wedding, thanking us so much for our work and how our flowers made her day so special. We were so pleased to have been involved. It was a real honour to have worked with such a lovely couple.
So here’s to Jennifer and Michael. May you have a beautiful future together, filled with love and happiness. And thank you!
