Kate and Patrick's flower story
I have so many absolutely beautiful weddings to blog about and I'll be sharing them over the next few weeks. I'm so excited about this one as it is close to my heart. Many years ago when I went to London to start my first job I moved in with Kate and Claire. I fondly remember our days living in a crazy house together on Borough High Street (not as trendy as it is now!).
When Kate got in touch and told me she was marrying Patrick and wanted me to do her flowers I was completely honoured. And a little bit scared. Kate is one of the most stylish people I know and so they had to be good.
They were getting married at Cornwall Manor, a beautiful country house in the Cotswolds. It was to be a relaxed, family wedding in the countryside and Kate wanted her flowers to reflect this.
We went for a light and delicate palette of pinks, lilacs and creams with the flower echoing the early summer.
Kate's delicious bouquet was full of peonies, sweet peas, scabious, roses, delphiniums and clematis. Finished with bespoke silk ribbons it was so pretty and so delicate. Their gorgeous flower girls wore delicate flower finished with long trailing ribbons.
The reception was dressed with flowered up garlands and a full-on flowery piece to frame Kate and Patrick. And the hanging installation in the marquee was just perfect for everyone to show their moves under into the evening. Anyway, have a look at some of the fab photos by Dan Morris Photography. You can see more pics from their wedding over on his blog.
