Charlotte & James’ Stunning September Wedding

Hosted on Saturday 9th September 2023 (one of the hottest days of the year), Charlotte & James tied the knot in a village that was just a stone’s throw from the Fiona Curry Flowers studio. It was an utter joy to work with this couple to bring their flower visions to life, and we are thrilled to be able to share a snippet from their very special day with you on the journal.

Charlotte was a vision, wearing a long-sleeved gown with delicate lace detailing. She wore her sun kissed blonde hair in an elegant yet relaxed up-do, which was the perfect fit for their laidback and luxurious event. We created the most beautiful trailing bridal bouquet – it looked like a painting! The bouquet itself was brimming with David Austin Wedding Roses in shades of soft ivory and pale peach, which looked divine alongside pale pink Antirrhinum, light blue Delphinium, white Scabiosa and oodles of natural foliage. The bridesmaids looked delightful in an array of mix and match gowns featuring various blue shades, with abundant bouquets that complemented the bridal bouquet wonderfully. An ivory satin ribbon tied around the stems added that all-important finishing touch to the bridesmaid bouquets!

After a traditional religious ceremony in the village church (with flowers by the lovely ladies at the church), friends and family walked to the reception together to unveil the exquisite marquee at the family home. The newlyweds, however, made their own way to their celebration in a beautiful vintage car – the perfect way to arrive in true style.

As guests arrived at the marquee, they were greeted by the most beautiful setting with luxurious floral design. Long wooden trestle tables were adorned with garlands (which came to 54 metres), overflowing with ‘Purity’ Roses by David Austin, Garden Roses in the palest peach hue, pink Lisianthus and Antirrhinum, ivory Scabious and Phlox, light blue Delphinium and mixed pink Dahlia – all of which was mixed with deep green natural foliage. Our silver tealights and glass taper candle holders were gracefully scattered along the tables which offered a subtle ambience throughout the reception.

Our team at Fiona Curry Flowers created three large hanging installations to further elevate the marquee styling, with light pink flowers and blue Delphiniums, large branches of Silver Birch and oodles of greenery. For an extra hint of magic, we worked in twinkling fairy lights that looked show-stopping against the backdrop of the sunset later on in the evening.

This was without a doubt one of the hottest days of the year, and even though Fiona (our Founder) once owned a flower shop in Southern Italy for many years, even she had never felt so warm working at a wedding! Fiona explains, “My team were outstanding and were full of beaming smiles after working for two days onsite in such high temperatures. I was so very proud of them and their work.”

As always, a huge thank you to Charlotte & James’ photographer, Richard Greenly, for capturing their beautiful story on camera. We hope you have enjoyed soaking up the floral inspiration. Don’t forget, if you are looking for a luxury florist for your wedding day, we welcome you to get in touch!

Winter Wedding at Northbrook Park

Nestled within 120 acres of glorious parkland, Northbrook Park is a Grade II listed manor house that is effortlessly romantic. With its enchanting Orangery, Walled Gardens and photograph opportunities galore, it provided the perfect backdrop for Olivia and James’ wedding on Saturday 12th February 2022.

Originally due to take place in June last year, the couple had to postpone the date because of the pandemic. Although their winter wedding was a complete comparison to their previously planned summer celebration, Olivia and James were spoilt with the most gorgeous day. Of course, it was long awaited!

The couple were the epitome of modern elegance and wanted a wedding style to match. The brief for their luxury wedding flowers was plenty of pillow-soft white flowers and an abundance of foliage to fill the venue, offering an ethereal and natural vibe.

Olivia’s bridal bouquet was brimming with white roses, ranunculus, scented stocks and freesias. The bride wore two dresses, with a stunning dress featuring subtle floral details for the ceremony, before changing into a minimalist and chic gown for the evening. Her bridesmaids looked divine in powder blue gowns, carrying simple gypsophila bouquets that worked beautifully alongside the statement bridal bouquet. Liz Patey Hair & Makeup was on hand to give Olivia and her team of ‘maids the perfect natural glow for their wedding day make-up.

Northbrook Park is renowned for The Vine Room, where we dressed the ceremony aisle with petals and adorned the fireplace with foliage and florals. Church chapel candles were lit and placed in front of the fireplace to add a warm glow to their winter wedding. After the ‘I Do’ moment, Olivia, James and their loved ones moved into the Orangery for the reception and wedding breakfast. The top table was sat below an enormous flower and foliage chandelier, which had a huge impact on the overall styling and was incredibly dramatic. The dramatic chandelier was a unique and stunning way to highlight the top table, and it looked wonderfully coordinated with the rest of the floral design throughout the room. Guests were seated at long tables supplied by Rustic Hire, which were decorated with foliage garlands and white flowers, candles as well as blue glasses and vintage candle holders were placed with twinkling tea lights. Runners and glasses were provided by the team at Co-Hire, with fairy lights adorned the ceiling with our foliage garlands entwining the beams.

With the combination of the venue, the florals and the sheer love that shone through on the day, Olivia and James’ winter wedding at Northbrook Park really was one to remember. A huge thank you to Photos From Sophie for capturing their love story on camera!
