QUINTESSENTIAL ENGLISH COUNTRY GARDEN WEDDING at Falconhurst in Kent

 

It was wonderful to be involved with this beautiful shoot at Falconurst in Kent which featured recently on Magnolia Rouge. Providing the flowers was such a treat becuase the grounds and gardens are absolutely spectacular. In the middle of the main garden there is a huge cutting patch and so with the gorgeous sunshine and two dogs dashing about I was basically in paradise! I brought my mum along with me and thank goodness I did because the arch is high and I needed a reliable ladder assistant!

For the flowers I took inspiration from what grows in the garden at Falconhurst anyway. There is lots of pink and white and a huge range of textures. Falconhurst is such a beautiful wedding venue that it doesn't need a huge amount of flowering - just a few pieces to emphasise what is already there.

Please see the full list of suppliers at the end of the post, an amazing team - thanks gang!

First Jennifer Pinder Workshop of 2017

 
Pei's table arrangement at the Jennifer Pinder Floristry lesson floral workshop based in Kent

Well this is totally unheard of... Actually writing a blog post on the same day as an event... But it is 2017 and this is the new me! I no longer drink diet coke or let months of receipts pile up or eat chocolate biscuits or fall asleep wearing makeup.

Unfortunately I know myself - this won't last but let's enjoy the momentum while it is here.

Today I welcomed two gorgeous ladies to the studio - Pei (who just loves flowers) and Amber (who has a beautiful shop in Somerset). It was lovely to start off the year flowering and hearing about these two's adventures in the floral world. It was a frosty morning and so after a quick walk around neighbouring Ightham Mote with husb and pup I foraged the best that I could from the garden and then retreated to the warmth of the studio as quickly as possible.

Stand out flowers for today included beautifully scented garden roses, huge pink anenomes and plum ranunculus. The garden surprised me this morning - I thought I would struggle but the eucalyptus is still going strong and I'm spoiled with deep purple and green pittosporum. All 3 of us turned out to be big foliage fans and the work produced was just beautiful as I am sure you will agree! One of the things I loved most about today was how different everyone's work ended up being. Enjoy and Happy New Year xx

Shiv's bouquet

Just a quick one from me! I just wanted to post this beautiful photo that a lovely bride called Shiv sent me. I love the colours in her sari so, so much. The wedding was in Islington in Spring and the bouquet contains narcissi, ranunculus, roses, astilbe and eucalyptus. Thank you for including me in your day Nick and Shiv! xx
