And so the day began with the binding of the bouquets at The Garden Room workshops in Chalfont St Peter and the making of the buttonholes.  All of these things need to be done as late as possible to ensure the freshness of the flowers once they are removed from water

The roses we used in Casey's bouquet were Amnesia and Quicksand - both of these needed to be imported from Ecuadore and were particularly expensive.  Although we worked hard to find less expensive substitutes, Casey is quite a discerning bride and wanted to stay with her original choice.  For Casey, the flowers and the colours were a very important part of her wedding.  The addition of burgundy dahlias, ivory astilbe, white wax flower, eucalyptus and birch twigs completed the bouquet designs.

We substituted white dahlias in the bridesmaid's bouquets so that they would stand out against the burgundy dresses.

When we delivered the bouquets to Hedsor House, Casey was quite overwhelmed - we have seen some very touching moments with our brides.  Meyer and Rene took these stunning images of Casey in her dream dress before the ceremony...

While the bride and bridesmaids were getting ready, we were busy decorating the historic St Nicholas Church at Hedsor...

The church is known to date from the end of the 12th century, has a spectacular location and is a stone's throw from Hedsor House. Jenny who looks after the church was so helpful and shared with us her thoughts on the decoration options for the church prior to the event - she was also present on the day itself and helped us to attach the ivy and roses to the candle sconces and either side of the entrance to the Sanctuary...thank you Jenny.

Back at Hedsor House, we were busy decorating the function suite, a stunning room brought to life with our flower decorations.

Below, you can see why our reference to the high life is so apt - as an exclusive use venue, Hedsor House can become your very own quintessential stately home and country playground for 24 hours.  Dating from 1166, the house in 100 acres of beautful parkland, has an illustrious history welcoming regal guest in past years and now hollywood celebrities.

We used flowers to complement the bouquets and set the tall arrangements on our cream, shabby chic metal stands and the short in small cream urns. Casey had chosen table cloths of natural coloured linen which set off the flower designs beautifully.

Top Tip:  the addition of coloured table cloths and napkins can make a huge difference to the look of your table settings.  if you'd like to explore this option, we can recommend one of our partners to help you with the different colours and styles available.
