Family Farm wedding in the Essex Countryside
When Becky first contacted me about her wedding flowers and mentioned pastel colours and using wheat from the family farm I immediately knew we were going to be creating something very special! We carefully went through the details for the day and I created a floral proposal including the moodboards for the flowers we could use in June and kind of look we could go for.

We settled on whites, blues and a hint of pink, as well as incorporating lilacs through delphiniums and cornflowers from the local flower farm. The flowers we chose were based on the gardens around us in early summer, and we also used the most seasonally available colours which increased the flower variety.
The wedding morning
When I arrived on the wedding morning into the farmhouse kitchen nestled in the Essex countryside, I was met by a wonderful group of ladies all excited for the day ahead. It was a really chilled and fun atmosphere as everyone was having their hair and makeup done, and the champagne was flowing as I presented the bouquets. It’s always one of my most favourite parts, yet also one of the most nerve racking parts!
Seeing their faces and hearing their kind complimentary words immediately put me at ease though. Wow! The pops of colour against Becky’s dress and the delicate pale green bridesmaids dresses created the perfect vision we’d set out to create. Receiving the professional photos back and getting to see the flowers in action on the day always makes me realise how special my job really is. Creating a little bit of the magic to be part of someone’s incredibly special day.
