On a cold but sunny February morning, when the garden is just beginning to wake up to the thought of Spring and the ‘to-do’ list includes tending the roses ready for the year ahead, my thoughts drift back to last Summer and a wedding where roses were celebrated in their prime.
Arabella and Adam were married on a beautiful day in July. The wedding took place in a small Hampshire church and the reception was held a short walk over the fields to the Bride’s family garden – a magnificent venue for a summer, country-style occasion.
The church was decorated simply with silver birch, ferns, clematis and lots of lovely foliage. We wanted to bring the rural Hampshire countryside inside and create a natural, yet striking tableau to frame the ceremony. Foliage and flowers were gathered from the Bride’s parent’s garden which helped to bring the seasons and the surroundings together as a backdrop to this beautiful day.
Roses and herbs were mixed with lavender to reference the couple’s love of France and coupled with a heathers as a nod to Adam’s Scottish background.
