Real Weddings: Ayat and Sam

Today we’re sharing an elegant wedding we worked on in the heart of the English countryside. Set in the stunning gardens and historic building of a quirky estate, we got to bring some very special designs to life…

The natural setting of Walcott Hall in Shropshire with its extensive lake, walled courtyard and vast scenery was the perfect venue for our couple, Ayat and Sam. The ceremony took place outside in the meadow, complete with a magical fountain, while the reception was held in the restored ballroom - a beautifully decorated, turquoise space with ornate ceiling, crystal chandeliers, open fireplace, gilt mirrors, tall sash windows and intimate bar. Both inside and outside presented the perfect backdrop for our floral creations, making everyone and everything on the day shine.

The Bouquet

For Ayat, we designed a hand-tied bridal bouquet with true meaning behind it. Her late father’s favourite flower was Jasmine so we knew we had to include this sweetly scented selection. The waxy white flowers and oval shiny leaves symbolise purity, deep affection and happiness, making it a special addition to this elegant bouquet. Complimented by the Ocean Song Spray Rose - a satin-effect, pale lavender choice and deeper purple petals of Clematis.

The Centrepieces

Made up of the rounded flower clusters of Hydrangea with their abundance of petals, lacy star-shaped flowers and pom-pom shapes, contrasted by the small-headed, delicate, peach Jana Spray Rose. We also decided on three types of Meijer Rose - known for multi-layered petals, big flowers and long, strong stems. The ivory cut Four Seasons Rose with extremely large bud and dense petals, the Sweet Avalanche Rose in soft pastel pink and subtle hint of green on the outer petals, and Pearl Avalanche Rose which added a luxurious warm look in the form of salmon and champagne colours with soft herbaceous foliage - together representing happiness, purity, gratitude and glamour.

The Table Plan

We continued the use of Hydrangea and Meijer Roses for a full-finish frame, paired with one of our favourites - the Bombastic Rose. This miniature spray rose is the palest of the pink available and brings a petite, multi-headed flower to the arrangement. The standout of the table plan was the Cafe Au Lait Dahlias - a warm, cream-blush flower with a peach centre that added texture to this gorgeous design.

The Meadow

Our aisle decor and floral arch saw us use a variety of flowers and foliage for depth and movement. Some of our most popular picks were added into the mix - the neatly formed, medium-sized rosettes of David Austin Sweet Juliet Roses in Glowing Apricot, the saucer-shaped, swirly velvet, pale pink petals of the Prince Jardinier Rose and the highly-fragrant, French, White O’Hara Rose. The Meijer Roses, Bombastic Spray Rose and Cafe Au Lait Dahlias made another appearance, while the sweet scented flowers, tall leafy stalks and graceful, ruffled blooms of Stock finished the look.

So there we go, another wonderful wedding we had the honour of working on. If you would like to find out more about how we can help you to create your dream wedding/event through floral design, then why not get in touch today?
