May weddings!

So now, one year in, my "flower hut" is in full swing. It was a busy month for The Flower Hut Florist. The busiest yet for my small business when it came to weddings and all things wedding flowers.

I'd like to take this moment to thank all my wonderful couples for choosing me to bring your flower vision to life. It is such a joy to be a part of a couple's special day, whether its just a bridal bouquet or a wedding backdrop of floral arches, moongates or milk churns, it all brings me joy.

Many congratulations to Ciaran & Megan, Tom & Jess and Anna & Lauren on tying the knot, and I wish you all the happiness in world.

All three weddings were beautiful, with three completely different styles and colours. One weddings.

The brief for the first wedding was for the flowers to be bright & happy with a festival vibe. I used sunflowers, pink peonies, blue delphiniums, roses, ranunculus, tanacetum, with a variety of foliage for texture, chicco fern and eucalyptus to name some. Not forgetting the fun, colour popping craspedia or "Billy Buttons" and some call them. Yellows, oranges, pinks and blues. Nothing formal, but instead everything beautiful and joyous, with the handtieds finished off with hessian. The Groom and groomsmen went for the "flower pocket" option instead of the traditional buttonhole. Trust me, these aren't as easy to make as it looks, but the result was fantastic! They had a beautiful church wedding in Slindon, West Sussex followed by a wonderful wedding reception at the very beautiful Upwaltham Barns.

Wedding number two was at the beautiful Southend Barns, Chichester, West Sussex. This gorgeous wedding service was held outside in The Secret Gardens. The beautiful bride and her bridesmaid had flowers that included dahlias, ranunculus, avalanche roses and pampas grass, the key colours being burnt oranges, golds and nudes which looked stunning and crisp in the sunshine. The pergola arch beams were decorated with similar flowers and lots of pampas with a matching table centrepiece for the ceremony. The burnt orange also came through by adding a flowing pure silk ribbon in orange for the bride's bouquet. This ribbon was sourced from Northern Hands. The groom and groomsmen had burnt orange buttonholes to tie in with the theme.

The final wedding in May was that of the lovely brides, Anna & Lauren, who had a gorgeous, relaxed and utterly gorgeous celebrant led wedding ceremony in the picturesque gardens of the The Royal Oak, Midhurst. We opted for a very alternative alter wedding backdrop using strawbales, milk churns and and abundance pastel ribbons on the pew ends. The pastel flowers we used we roses, delphiniums, astilbe, Astrantia and blue oxypetalum to name but a few.

Each wedding was unique in itself and used completely different themes when it came to flowers. What a joy it was working with all three couples and their families. It was a privilege to bring their wedding flower vision to life.

Wishing them all, all the happiness and love in the world!
