A combination of botanical greens, whites, peaches and apricot colours created this romantic aesthetic at Charlie and Duncan's wedding. We were delighted to let our creativity shift into something new. Our brief was to include flowers with these subtle colour cues and to blend them with pheasant feathers and shot gun shells to reflect this couples link to farming and their hobbies. The strong forms of lilies and the gorgeously named Miss Piggy roses combined beautifully with delicate flurries of gypsophila (also known as baby's breath) and green foliage. The botanical theme was continued with bay trees flanking the picturesque building's entrance and a Jasmine arch positioned to be seen on the way out of the building.
Wreaths were created to sit snuggly around hurricane vases and were adorned with clusters of the flowers replicated in the bouquet. Peachy coloured berries were added to contribute to the soft feminine colour palette for visual interest. Lovely soft moss continued the green feel, adding a link to woodland areas seen all over Devon.
To add to the farming background of this couple, the top table was adorned with eye-catching displays using raw distressed trays embellished with the uplifting feminine peach and pink tones. A touch of masculinity was added with the shotgun shells and pheasant feathers placed carefully within the display. The shotgun shells and feathers were a request by the bride and groom and makes for a unique and personal touch to the displays. This adds a more wild side to the wedding and makes for a more authentic connection between their wedding and their everyday life.
The Shotgun shells also offered an opportunity for using as vessels for button holes. It was fascinating to see how varied and beautifully patterned the pheasant feathers were, so we placed these inside the shotgun shells lending an alternative to the usual flowers. It's a little bit unexpected but heightens the rustic country look the bride and groom wanted to achieve.
