My Sister’s wedding flowers

Wedding flowers

At the end of July 2016 we spent a wonderful sunny day in Hertfordshire because my lovely little Sister got married! My Sister’s best friend & I were bridesmaids, and Lottie & my Niece were flower girls.

The wedding day itself was relaxed, laid back and informal and yet it was extremely beautiful and stylish too. They made their guests feel very welcome in a rural village-hall setting filled with floral bunting hanging from the wooden beams and jam-jars full of aromatic lavender. My Sister and her Hubby worked so hard on creating a truly memorable day.

The wedding flowers and bouquets were absolutely stunning – and I wanted to share them in this post. My Sister wanted a wild, country-garden look and the florist certainly created it from her vision. The flowers were beautiful and all handmade.

I took these photographs on the wedding morning of the flowers being delivered to her house.

All of the wedding flowers were absolutely stunning and they smelt divine. The flower girls had a smaller version of our bouquets and they were so sweet! We all loved carrying them down the aisle of the village hall.

I actually really adore this style of flowers – it looks effortless and rustic and yet it is very stylish too. Perfect for my Sister’s special day.

Everything about her wedding was lovely; the service, the food, the drinking, the company, the dancing. What a fantastic way to start married life!

Love, Jess x

    Those photos are gorgeous, as are the flowers! I never forget our wedding flowers arriving at the hotel the morning of our wedding, it was so exciting as up until that point you don’t really know how they’re going to turn out. Sounds like the perfect day xx

    What gorgeous photos you’ve captured Jess. A lovely addition to your sister’s wedding photos I’m sure. The flowers are gorgeous, very similar in colour and style to my own when I got married. It looks like you all had a wonderful day! xx

    SO gorgeous!!! I love this informal kind of floral arrangement — really pretty. It’s a million miles away from the bouquet I had 15 years ago, which was really graphic and minimalist. If I got married today, I think I’d got for something like this though — just lovely. I hope your lovely sis has a long and happy marriage xx C #HomeEtc
