Pretty Pastels at Hendall

Back in the summer we had the pleasure of working at Hendall for some lovely weddings. It's one of our local venues and it's a truly beautiful setting with the "wow" factor.

For one of the weddings we were given the brief to do some summery, pale, pretty and natural flowers with a simple, just-picked look. The bride liked the delicate prettiness of meadowy flowers like feverfew, cosmos and scabious, which is always music to our ears!

We tied little jars of cosmos and feverfew to the ends of the chairs and included a simple mixed foliage garland along a handrail. For extra impact we used two large free-standing urn arrangements with hydrangea "Annabelle", the wonderful dahlia "cafe au lait" and blue larkspur.
