Last summer we had the pleasure of contributing in a rustic, countryside romance wedding photoshoot at Ufton Court, Berkshire. This month it has been featured in Perfect wedding magazine which we are so thrilled about, especially as it features not only Flowermonkey wedding flowers but the styling from our sister company, The Vintage Styling Company and beautiful wedding stationery from the very talented Grace and Bramble.


With the summer sun beaming down, in the surroundings of the stunning wedding barn and the fields, filled with hay bales, this beautiful shoot aimed to provide inspiration for an English countryside wedding.


For that rustic feel we combined a classic colour palatte of soft peaches, pinks, creams and pale greens, alongside hessian table runners, tree slices, twine, metal jugs and jam jars. We used beautiful roses, hydrangeas, astilbe, lavender, lisianthus, brunia, wax flower, baby's breath and ammi.


We used props from crate table plans to vintage singer sewing machines, wood slices and rustic metal jugs. We made a beautiful floral crown for one of the models to complement the rustic bouquet she was holding.

Martin and Gemma married at the beautiful Rivervale Barn on 28th July 2014. Gemma's bouquet was full of dusky pinks and cream roses, with her bridesmaid having a cream rose and gypsophila bouquet


The ceremony room was decorated with hanging wicker hearts and lanterns on columns, while in the reception room we carried the rustic charm into all the decorations. The centerpieces of handcut flowers sat on treeslices with bark covered tealights surrounding them. While the top table had mini treeslices, candles and cut flowers in jam jars along it.


To coordinate the decor, Gemma and Martin chose our rustic table plan with luggage tags and pots filed with coordinating flowers from their palette.


Wedding flower palette: astilbe, pitto, hydrangea, lisianthus, amnesia roses, avalanche roses, avalanche sorbet roses, romantic antique roses, spray roses, sedum, white stocks

Laura & Daniel recently got married at the stunning Rivervale Barn in Yateley, Hampshire.


The couple chose different shades of pinks and creams to create a pretty vintage / country style look. Their flower pallete included the following:

seasonal peonies in pinks and creams, pink spray roses, ammi, avalanche sorbet rose, astilbe, wax flower, lissianthus, freesias, hydrangea, pittosporum and eucalyptus.


Laura opted for a teardrop bouquet filled with flowers from the palette, which complemented her three bridesmaid's hand held bouquets.


We transformed the barn with an arrangement in the ceremony room, which was then used on the top table and we arranged rustic floral arrangments on wood slices in decorated jam jars on the reception tables.


The buttonsholes all featured a cream rose with each one having a slightly different filler to add variation.


Congratulations Laura & Daniel!!! x
