Mention the colour Peach in relation to weddings to people of a certain age and they’ll probably pull a face and proceed to tell you about a 1980s wedding they went to full of puffy sleeves, satin and lace (or in my case wore the colour as a bridesmaid)
This month at Boutique Blooms we’ve been busy with weddings, meeting new clients and hosting our own Wedding Flowers Workshops for those of you who fancy giving your wedding flowers a go yourself! The wedding I would like to share with you today is the wedding of Mr _ Mrs Flowers…yes that is their real name! Manuela _ Ian were having a Tudor themed wedding at the beautiful Carew Manor in Surrey. Carew Manor is set in the grounds of a beautiful park and dates back to medieval times with wonderful wooden clad walls and a very pretty dovecot outside too. They wanted the flowers to be in keeping with the Tudor theme and the colours similar to that of an autumnal palette.

Hi All, its great to be back writing for LoveLuxe blog and I am so excited to share this beautiful spring wedding with you. Natalie and Ed were married this May in the absolutely stunning location of Cripps Barn, in the Cotswolds. Natalie came to me asking for her wedding flowers to be centred around a natural, rustic style using seasonal flowers available in May. She was very clear on the type of look she wanted to achieve through her wedding flowers, decorating the already beautiful venue with splashes of ivory with the palest pink throughout.

A fascination with everything seaside and beach themed started the business for us, so I thought it appropriate to cover this favourite theme of mine.
I’ll set the scene…the sun is shimmering off the cool blue sea, a beautiful arch of seashells awaits the arrival of bride and groom, sun-kissed children carry garlands of starfish whilst a choir of magical mermaids sing heavenly tunes…oh hang on, got a bit carried away.
That’s not really my sort of thing if I’m honest… There are some beautiful beach destination weddings but how about a more realistic beach theme? One that could be used at any venue, including good old wet ’n’ windy Blighty and not cost as much as your mortgage?

I believe when it comes to weddings you can find inspiration in most things, some people love romance and classical inspiration, whilst others love the soft approach that is rustic country. People are really finding their inspiration anywhere, that one perfect item of jewellery or a hair piece could inspire a vintage theme. This is exactly why I love weddings these days, people are not scared to push themselves creatively to make that perfect finish or theme.
