Sally & Tim’s wedding flowers

June 27, 2011

Leela Bennett Sally & Tim

The minute I saw these exquisite bouquets, I knew I had to share them with you. The vibrant shades of the deep pink peonies and bright blue cornflowers create striking pops of colour, while the more subtle hues of the roses, purple scabious, white sweet peas and spires of veronica help soften the design. Bex at Blush Floral Design was responsible for the stunning vintage-style arrangements, which she created for Sally & Tim’s 1940s-themed wedding at Rivervale Barn in Hampshire. The photographs were taken by Leela at Leela Bennett Photography, who has perfectly captured the beauty of the blooms. Thanks ladies and congratulations Sally & Tim!

Sally’s hand-tied bouquet had a natural, just-picked feel, and was tied with satin ribbon and lace. The bride gave her bouquet a personal touch by fastening a locket that belonged to her grandmother to the stems, which opened to reveal black and white pictures of Sally and Tim. The bridesmaids’ bouquets were smaller versions of Sally’s, and featured peonies, roses, scabious, chamomile and cornflowers.

When it came to the ceremony and reception flowers, the couple wanted lots of bright colours and traditional English blooms to complement the 1940s wartime theme. Informal, just-picked arrangements of hydrangeas, cornflowers, irises, sweet peas and chamomile were displayed on vintage cake stands and inside eclectic jam jars, which doubled up as pretty chair-back decorations (below).
