I was approached by Jess and Johnny to do their wedding flowers after they had seen a wedding that I had done months before involving trees and lots of moss! I was so excited to be asked to do this wedding a year later.
Jess and Johnny were intent on having a wedding in the woods with the most natural surroundings possible, I understand it took a little persuading to even have a roof overhead for the wedding breakfast!
I knew from the description that the location would be special but when I did a site visit to Longton Woods I was overwhelmed by the secluded quiet beauty . A rare little gem indeed.
To see lots more images click here as this special wedding is featured on MrsPandP wedding blog.
Jess loved orange and purple and so that is what we ran with in terms of colour then added as much moss, twigs and other woodland inspired material as we possibly could.
Jess and her bridesmaid's carried wild natural bouquets of orange, purple and green flowers and foliage.
The other theme for the day was based around Harry Potter, so original and the little touches around the venue such as The Sorting Hat to seat the guests was inspired.
Buttonholes were natural mini bunches of forest material such as cones and ferns and did look so effective, individual little works of art..
We decorated an archway with an informal display which wound itself in and around the natural wood latticing and included clematis, lisiantus, hypericum berries 'Coffee Break' and 'Cherry Brandy' roses.
The tables were dressed with runners of moss, ferns, foliage and hand made twig trees with touches of orange roses and purple lisianthus.
One of the most creative and relaxed weddings to be involved in this year, and lovely people as well what could be nicer?
