Bronte and Annie were married back in September 2019 and chose the girliest pastel filled flowers for their big day. They chose Kingscote Barn , a luxury Cotswold stone venue based in the heart of the Cotswolds. I was over the moon when Bronte got in touch just 6 weeks before the wedding as this was a venue that I really wanted to visit. Photography by Che Birch Hayes.
Our First Consultation
After Bronte got in touch via my Facebook page, we set up a consultation just a few days later. Annie and Bronte were so welcoming and made me feel very excited to plan their flowers. Both ladies wanted to have different bouquets, but elements that matched each others style and personality. We decided to create 2 bouquets in very similar styles using the same flowers, just in different textures and tones. Annie's bouquet included more lilacs and Bronte's had more pinks. I was also given the challenge to create the cutest little doggy flower collar for their Italian Greyhound, Ollie.
The Big Day
When I arrived at Kingscote Barn, the staff were really helpful and showed me exactly where the flowers needed to go. I had the Bridal Bouquets, Buttonholes, Ollie's collar and their top table arrangement.
Bronte and Annie used Kingscote Barn's onsite florist for other venue decorations such as table decorations and pew ends, as this was part of their wedding package. It was great to see how we both chose extremely similar flowers for Annie and Bronte's big day, and although we have differing styles, the arrangements worked so well together you wouldn't have even known it was 2 different florists' work.
After setting up the ceremony table, it was time to go and see Bronte and Annie (and meet Ollie!)
I quickly checked in with Annie whilst she was getting her hair ready and made sure she was happy with everything and the collar would fit Ollie just right. I then went back to the ceremony room to find Bronte as she was helping her parents with the final details. Once both Annie and Bronte were happy I knew my job was complete.
Bronte and Annie's flowers were so beautiful, they were inspired by their love of pastel colours and sparkles. September is a lovely time to get married, late summer flowers are in bloom and early autumn is just starting to come through.
