Get the look! Floral wedding amazingness feature!

Published by Claire Gould on

The vibrant floral styling from Ross and Sarah’s Silchester Farm wedding grabbed our hearts last month and we were so excited to share some little extras with you. All of the gorgeous images are by Dorset and Hampshire wedding photographer Nathan at Libra Photographic.

With striking reds, gem colours and a sensory overload of blooming beauty, we fell hard for this gorgeous wedding look.

The colour palette works all year round; the flowers used for this Hampshire wedding are by Denham based florists and event stylists Ever After. Their talented florists used sweet peas, dahlias, aliums, tulips, roses, ranunculus, and peonies.

Sarah and Jo took care of everything, making it so easy… The colour scheme was jewelled pink, purple and orange so the scope for the flowers was incredible… So many people came up to me and said “Oh, the flowers! Oh, the flowers!” My advice on flowers is to go high impact rather than lots of little bits and reuse them where you can – for example, we had urns with flowers spilling out for either side of the aisle that our stylist moved through to the wedding breakfast by the entrance. ~ beautiful bride Sarah

Ross and Sarah’s wedding wrapped itself beautifully around the theme of ‘Love through time’, told through floral art from various eras.

The drinks reception was inspired by Sultan Ahmet’s tulip garden in Ottoman-era Turkey and the wedding breakfast was Victorian Scotland in 1879.

Sarah handmade a lot of the props including getting a large Victorian frame and handmaking little escort cards made of rag paper. These were hung on string to create the most striking, artistic seating plan.

The bridesmaids’ bouquets are stunning! Each has its own colour palette; together they create the most fabulous display – and all of the girls look amazing with them!

We’re in LOVE with this opulent floral buttercream wedding cake by Emma Page Cakes – it’s a perfect fit for Sarah & Ross’s theme, and a piece of art in itself!

The table name signs are beautifully made, with torn paper, playful fonts and vintage style illustrations with decoupage paper flowers. Wonderful!

Floral postcards make a wonderful alternative wedding guest book. We adore this idea!

Flowers and art go hand in hand, and these colourful little pieces alongside place settings are simply beautiful.

Sarah and Ross’s use of quotes throughout the day is so much fun – and the words are bursting with romance. These are simple to make and a lovely project if you’re creative types!

Another absolute showstopper from Ross & Sarah’s wedding day was Aaron Jacob Jones, the Wedding Illustrator. He comes highly recommended and we’ll be sharing a little more from the Wedding Illustrator in the coming weeks – watch this space!
