It was a Thursday wedding. The sun shone gloriously all day, there was a refreshing breeze, and the G&Ts were ceaselessly available. What a fab day Cate and Tom’s wedding was!
And what a treat for me to get to attend the wedding at the wonderful Oaks Farm, as well as providing the flowers!
The flowers were largely the bride Cate’s department. Well, the groom had one request – that hops featured in the personal flowers. It was a September wedding, hops are in season, so Tom got his wish!
The bouquets were made up of a sumptuous collection of Cymbidium orchids, ‘Vermeer’ and ‘Schwarzwalder’ calla lilies, Hydrangea, Hypericum berries, Alliums, Alchamilla mollis, and the hops of course – an absolute riot of purple and lime green.
The ladies and gents wore ‘Crystal Blush’ calla lilies, with lime green accents.
The reception decoration was themed around the couple’s favourite tipple – Gin. Gin and tonic bottles were filled with purple Delphiniums and Hydrangeas, setting off the rustic venue perfectly.
Congratulations to Tom and Cate, and thank you for letting me share your gorgeous day with you – we had a blast!
