Beside the Seaside

I so enjoyed the beach theme of this wedding, it was wonderful to have fresh ideas and colours to work with. I was grateful to be given freedom by Carys and Fred to add little touches of seaside textures such as driftwood, shells and pieces of fishing net throughout the arrangements.all within the beautiful setting of the Tipi's at The Gardens, Yalding.

Carys wanted yellows as her accent colour, bright cheerful and heralding spring, toning with the mass of daffodils in the gardens.. I made her a hand tied bouquet full of texture and colour, gorgeous yellow roses, spray roses, beautiful scented narcissi, daisies, tulips and fresh greenery. Light to hold with floaty foliage which bounces as you walk and stunning to photograph.

Her bridesmaids carried similar bouquets of lemon and cream flowers including vanilla sky roses, tulips and narcissi.

For the centerpieces we made garlands to sit around a glass hurricane vase filled with sand and a cream church candle in more neutral green grey and cream tones. Materials included tulips, succulent plants, tanacetum  and lisianthus. 

Shells and net were added for effect. The top table was a long display in the same colours and materials but we added small starfish to give a natural beach feel.

Such a sunshine coloured wedding you couldn't help but feel uplifted, happy and the love in the tipi!.
