Summer at The Castle

Beautiful soft lilacs and lavender, so cool for the summer and a lovely change from pink, which, though I love, we do see quite a lot of!

There are so many lovely summer flowers in this pretty colour palette; for August we have so much choice, freesia, spray roses, lovely Ocean Song roses, veronica, lavender, campanula and clematis with gorgeous grey greens, senecio. eucalyptus and the increasingly popular olive and scented rosemary.

We made Emma a beautiful shower bouquet of mixed lilac summer flowers. Shower bouquets don't have to look stiff and stilted, we love the light and dainty look packed with, pretty natural movement. 

The soft lilacs complimented the bridesmaid's silvery grey dresses. We made a dainty flower ball of gypsophila for the tiny bridesmaid, tied with delicate lilac ribbon.

In the glorious Astor Suite at Hever Castle we made the ever timeless silver candelarbra dressed with lilac and white flowers and mixed foliage with elegant cream candles. Matched with a long and low top table centrepiece.

These pretty lilac men's buttonholes were made with lisianthus, hypericum berry and lavender. 

With may thanks to one of my favourite photographers Danni Beach. I have cropped her beautiful images to fit this page but do take a look at her work in full on her website

They really do capture every detail of Emma and Nick's beautiful wedding.
