West-Sussex wedding flowers – A pop of pink flowers
The brief for these West-Sussex wedding flowers was bright pink. Naturally, personal preference always dictates that colour themes differ. Moreover, it’s also one of the key things I love about creating wedding flowers, everyone wants something different. It has to be said though, pink flowers are probably one of the most popular colour choices for wedding flowers. So again, depending on preference some choose the palest blush pinks, whilst others opt for more strength of colour. Please read on as this blog is all about celebrating Sophie’s pop of pink flowers!
The Wedding Morning and West-Sussex Wedding Flowers en Route!
Both the bride and the florist have early starts on the wedding morning and this wedding was no different for me. Firstly, I had a marquee to fill with stunning flowers. Secondly as I also had bridal flowers to deliver too, an early start for me was essential. This was a Saturday wedding and after a whole week of flower preparation the day had finally arrived. The van was flower-filled and my team and I set off for Chichester. West-Sussex wedding flowers en route!
I simply love delivering the bridal bouquets on the wedding morning as there is always so much anticipation and excitement. While the bride gets ready for her big day…. it’s always fun to be there! A proud mum, bridesmaid’s buzzing about and a bride in hair curlers that’s often the scene that I join. Then arriving with my boxed up West-Sussex bound wedding flowers, I observed this wedding morning was to be no different in that respect. So, after all the months of planning I am always thrilled to undo the box of tissue paper and show the bride her bouquet. Then to conclude my little visit,I also take time to show the bride how to hold the bouquet, especially for the photos. In addition, I’ve got some great tips to pass on for this which I know you’ll love.
Bridal Party Flowers
Choosing the colour way for the wedding flowers often starts with the bridal party. Then as a final result how gorgeous did Sophie look holding her bouquet for some of the official photographs. The rain on this autumn Saturday was torrential at times. No other word for it! However, the cloisters at Chichester Cathedral were the perfect backdrop solution to this rainy day. Sophie looked amazing and absolutely nailed it with her bouquet made with her favourite pop of pink.
The boys in the wedding party always look great with their buttonholes pinned smartly to to jackets……what-ever-the-weather! With this in mind colour co-ordination works here for the boys too.
Floral Photo Backdrop
Stunning Urns of flowers always make an amazing statement and provide the perfect floral backdrop to the pictures.
Hot pink flowers were the basis of this display. With the pop of pink, the flowers contrasted and stood out beautifully, against the neutrals of the ivory marquee lining.
Hot Pink Flowers for the Reception Tables
Coordinating table flowers, the bridal flowers and other decorations adds continuity to the wedding flowers. So the job of the wedding flowers is not only to look good but to thread the day today together too. This always looks especially great in the photos.
Sophie wanted to achieve drama with high guest table vases, as well as impact from the bright pink flowers. Despite the torrential rain that day, once inside the marquee the guests were surrounded by beautiful colourful hot pink flowers.
The Ingredients for these stunning West-Sussex wedding flowers
Seasonality, as ever is my main starting point when recommending or selecting wedding flowers. Naturally Sophie’s Autumn wedding was no different. Roses, jasmine trails and pink snowberry were used for the brides bouquet. The reception arrangements were created with a collection that included show stopping oriental lilies and dahlias. These star performers were combined with spires of antirrhinum, delicate scabious, ‘autumn joy’ sedum and stunning seasonal hydrangeas. Mixed foliages were used throughout the arrangements to support the flowers, with a particular emphasis on stems of ruscus with its soft curves and arching lengths together with meter long jasmine tendrils.
