Jessica and Chris got married in June, at St Michael’s Church, Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire and then went on to Chris’ parent’s home for a reception and celebration in a marquee in their garden.
It was a complete pleasure to be asked to do their flowers and work with Jess; she had a clear style idea for her wedding day, taking inspiration from Kate Moss and Kate Middleton’s wedding style and it was exciting to work with her to make her vision a reality.
Jess wanted a timeless classic day, with a hint of boho, something relaxed and reminiscent of Kate Moss’ big day; neutral natural colours, dreamy and effortlessly chic. She wanted boho wedding flowers with a garden feel to them, almost as though she and the bridesmaids had gone out and picked them themselves on their way to the church.
Jess’ bouquet was a wired ,slight waterfall design using small ivory roses and spray roses, freesia, gypsophilia and a few daisies scattered; similar in design to that of Kate Middleton’s, subtle but beautiful.
The bridesmaids wore a very pale blush colour in keeping with Jess’ natural colour scheme. They carried hand tied posies which echoed the bride’s flowers, minus the small ivory roses; they also wore floral circlets of gypsophilia and daisies, an ethereal nod to the brides boho style.
The marquee was decorated with our own crystal candelabras, adorned with halos of gypsophilia, daisies, hydrangea, lisianthus and eucalyptus and a scattering of cut glass votives with gypsophilia and hydrangea around the base.
With thanks to their photographer Victoria Cadisch for some of the photos featured here.
“I had a very specific vision for my wedding flowers & Elegant Stems captured it beautifully. The flowers were sensational on the day & exceeded my own expectations (considering I am a huge perfectionist!).
Thank you for helping my wedding dreams come true! Xx“
