Last weekend I had the pleasure of doing flowers for an old school friend. Kelly chose a vintage theme of gorgeous muted tones of antique Pinks, Ivory and and Greens. I used gorgeous Ammi and Astrantia to give the bouquet a country feel and the most heavenly scented Ivory Roses and Lilac.
The buttonholes were wrapped in rustic twine and were a mixture of Ranunculus and Anemone with Wax Flower and Astrantia.
Here is a picture for Kelly looking gorgeous with her son.
The table decorations were a mixture of quart pint milk bottles and kilner jars filled with similar flowers which looked amazing teamed with Kelly's beautiful favours and tea lights.
The Blue Nigella and scented Sweet Peas used in this bouquet and buttonholes came from a local grower, and they looked so pretty next to the soft pink of the Sweet Avalanche Rose. I always give the groom a special button hole different from the others, usually with something taken from the bridal bouquet. Nigella flower are often said to be the chains that bind people together in love!
