Caz and Daniel's flower story

This is one gorgeous wedding. Caz and Daniel came to me with a vision in mind. For their wedding at South Farm they wanted to incorporate their various family backgrounds into the wedding day and their flowers were going to help do this. Caz wanted nods to South Africa, Scotland and England woven through their wedding flowers. Well, what a lovely challenge.

Caz had spotted the stunning King Protea and wanted it to feature in her bouquet. This show stopping flower is so pretty. Firm blush petals surround the softest centre. The stamens are like the softest velvet! Together with the Protea we added thistles, garden roses, scabiosa, snapdragons, dahlias and lots of foliage.

Caz’s bouquet was a longer lined posy which gave room for lots of movement and texture (and two of the stunning King Protea). Her bridesmaids carried smaller posies and her youngest maid wore the prettiest flower crown full of spray roses, berries and foliage.

South Farm is a lovely rural venue and smallholding (with it’s own pigs and quite often a variety of piglets!) And so to this lovely rustic space we added a touch of luxe. Garden style arrangements with a touch of copper were the order of the day for the ceremony and the reception. Flowery hanging hoops formed the backdrop to Caz and Daniel’s ceremony along with a low growing style arrangement for the table. And for the reception we added tall copper stands topped with blush flowers which included the prettiest limelight hydrangeas and dahlias. Like I said, this was one gorgeous wedding!
