Laura and Alan - Hirst Priory



It's hard to sum up just how amazingly gorgeous this wedding was, so the word 'stunning' will have to do. Laura and Alan were super relaxed during the planning stages of the big day, meaning that working with them was as easy as it could be. Their chosen venue was Hirst Priory (my favourite) where the wonderful Sarah from Folega Photography was photographing the big day. It was so good to be working with her again.


Although super laid back, Laura knew exactly how she wanted her bouquet to look: full and blousy, consisting of peonies and blush roses to coordinate with the bridesmaid's dresses. I incorporated a lovely photo of Laura's Nan into this piece, as Laura wanted her by her side as she walked down the aisle.


I managed to track down the perfect roses, named 'Cappunico' alongside Juliette David Austin roses and white peonies. I also included apricot stocks and cream lisyanthus.

I think this has to be one of my favourite combinations, and was the most liked image on my Facebook page once I'd posted a small sneak peek.


The 'Cappunico' rose was the perfect match for those stunning bridesmaids!


For Alan's buttonhole I chose to use the elegant 'Juliette' David Austin rose, alongside elements from the bridal bouquet - all finished with vintage lace ribbon.


Laura bought simple mason jars for the main table displays, and I used three smaller jam jars flower arrangements to dot around the central piece. The bride dressed the jars herself, using hessian ribbon and string to create a rustic feel.

The venue decor was by the brilliant Laura from Blush Venue Decor.




I hope you have enjoyed this beautiful wedding and I'd love to hear your thoughts!
