A beautifully floral English country garden wedding at Kelmarsh Hall, with Liam Smith Photography and The Flower Stylist

I’m tough to knock down with a feather… but you could swipe me to the floor with a bouquet like this. How incredible are those textures, the statement blooms and the colour scheme… I mean, like, wow. I’m speechless.

The flowers are by the wonderful mother and daughter duo Ann and Alysha at The Flower Stylist in Northampton. Ann has very kindly explained how the arrangements and bouquet were created and inspired by the bride’s vision of a loose, natural style.

I find it absolutely fascinating to see how a bouquet is structured and designed; how flowers are chosen and arranged, and how a flower stylist can create something amazing for every bride! Today has also been a lesson in flowers for me too… the Coral Charm peony is my new favourite. LOVE!!!

Ann told me ~

Katherine’s instructions were simply: loose, natural and a little pop of yellow, she had also specified no pink.

“We chatted and discussed various flowers. Katherine loved the Craspedia (the little yellow ball) – this was my pop of yellow and quite fun.

“I chose the Coral Charm peony as I think it’s a gorgeous statement flower and opens up fully to show its little yellow stamen.

“I also used the David Austin Keira rose, which is very English and I then went for a Miss Piggy Rose as I feel colour wise this flower complements the Coral Charm perfectly.

“Katherine really wanted Ranunculus, unfortunately these were coming to the end of their season, but I manage to have a few dotted through the bouquet. Astilbe and Astrantia were also used. These help with the very unstructured look of the bouquet.

I wanted to use foliage that flowed and trailed, so opted for some ferns and Eucalyptus.”

For the male button holes I used the Craspedia and Eryngium thistle and grape hyacinth. Katherine was looking for less predictable flowers – something other than roses. The mother of the bride wanted something very understated, here I opted for the ranunculus and a touch of hypericum.”
