Wedding Flowers for Blackstock Barn

Last week we did flowers for a wedding at Blackstock Barn near Hellingly, East Sussex. The brief was "informal, country-style", with a blue/mauve colour palette. We decorated the tables with jam jars of relaxed style flowers, including the first of the alliums, purple aquilegias, sweet peas, bluebells and other early summer delights.

The bridal bouquet was an eclectic mixture of things, including some lovely pink ranunculus, which seems to be enjoying the cool damp weather (glad someone is!) Also added an allium for texture - they don't have an onion scent when super-fresh, also doesn't hurt to combine with sweet peas!
