Pretty in Pink at Parklands, Quendon Hall
Rebecca and Lee got married back in August last year, at St. Andrew’s Church, Much Hadham and then celebrated their nuptials in the marquee at Parklands, Quendon Hall.Rebecca had a very clear brief for the look of her day, it had to romantic and whimsical, with a hint of rustic. Her bridesmaid’s were wearing a soft pink shade and her vision was very much for the day to be pretty in pink and Rebecca had an eye for detail that just made this wedding a complete pleasure to work on.
Being a petite bride, it was very important for us to make a bouquet for Rebecca that did not overwhelm her, but most importantly still fitted her brief. We designed a rounded hand tied posy which would give the feel of rustic without being too ‘messy looking’. We used the beautiful Upper Secret rose, with its soft pink interior and vintage deeper pink outer tips, the ivory coloured Avalanche rose, the pinker Sweet Avalanche, the very romantic looking soft pink David Austin rose and the peachy Talea rose. To create the rustic feel we incorporated gypsophila, some ivory spray roses and the white lisianthus with their green buds, interspersed with the variegated foliage. Rebecca chose to have the stems bound in garden twine to finish with a rustic touch.
Her bridesmaids wore soft pink; their bouquets were very similar to the bride’s, smaller in design and with a little less colour, featuring more ivory flowers. Rebecca also had a beautiful flower girl who carried an even smaller version of her bouquet and wore a pretty flower head circlet, made of foliage, gypsophila and ivory spray roses; these look adorable and are increasingly more popular with our brides.
It was very important for Rebecca and Lee to have the decorations from the church reused as much as possible in the reception venue. They hired our two large urns filled with a beautiful selection of flowers to match the wedding theme, including the various shades of roses, lisianthus, hydrangea, gypsophila, trailing amaranths and light foliage. After the service these were placed either side of the aisle at the front of the church before being moved to either end of the top table in the marquee at Parklands, making something of a statement to the traditional top table set up…stunning!
