Check out these pretty spring blooms which were set up for a family reception at one of two special weddings that took place last weekend.
We kept the style loose and natural with classic white & pink roses and the addition of fresh rosemary from the garden to add a lovely scent and wild texture.
These floral arrangements were presented in our embellished jam jars & vintage vases. x
Last Saturday this gorgeous pair made it official and certainly celebrated their wedding nuptials in style! We’re still swooning over the photos of their perfect day and cannot get over how beautiful Saskia looks in her vintage lace dress (Audrey Hepburn eat your heart out!). I think it’s fair to say, Geordie’s looking pretty darn dapper too.
We absolutely love the natural elegance of this spring wedding. It’s gorgeous palette of deep navy contrasting with pretty peach tones, the delicate seasonal blooms and all the lovely vintage inspired details. Saskia & Geordie hired our vintage wedding bunting to decorate their marquee and we hope you agree, we think it complements their theme rather nicely. x
What better way to spend the day than arranging these beautiful silk flowers - all ready to be displayed at this weekend's wedding. x

Well, It’s Friday the 13th people - if like us, you’re a little on the superstitious side, you’ll dodge walking under any ladders and avoid black cats like the plague today! In all seriousness though, it got us thinking about some of the old wedding superstitions and wondering what they really mean…?
If you’re getting married today, it's unlikely you'll be reading our blog but fingers crossed you’ve got a few of these ticked off the list already!
The bride should wear something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue (and if she REALLY wants feel lucky… a silver sixpence in her shoe!)
“…a silver sixpence in her shoe.” As the Victorian rhyme goes, placing a penny in the bride’s shoe will bring her a life filled with good luck and fortune.
The groom should not see the bride in her wedding dress before the ceremony.
This superstitions originates from the time when arranged marriages were custom and signified a business deal between two families. The bride’s family feared that if the groom met the bride before the ceremony and didn’t like the look of her, he’d call the whole thing off! Therefore, it soon became tradition that the bride and groom were only allowed to meet at the altar so the groom couldn’t change his mind…. Romantic stuff, huh!?
The groom should carry his bride across the threshold of their new home to avoid bad luck.
Rather than fork out for yet another cake the couple would store the top tier of their wedding cake until needed in the following months.
Last but not least, rain on your wedding day is actually considered GOOD luck!
Some say rain represents the last tears the bride will shed for the rest of her life… other’s say it represents a new start, unity and renewal. We say, it’s not the end of the world but sunshine would be more convenient!
Selecting a colour scheme is one of the first things you’ll need to think about when planning your big day and without trying to panic you, SO MUCH stems from this decision! Once you’ve chosen the colours you like, you can get carried away thinking about bridesmaid dresses, flowers, decorations, stationary..…. And that’s all before you even get to the finer details!
Given our love for all things vintage, we are totally obsessed with the pastel palette and tend to stick to this group of colours when sourcing and making our vintage themed props.
There’s just something so enchanting about the pretty pinks, buttercream yellows, pale lilacs, baby blues, minty greens, soft peaches (… the list goes on!) and in case you’re wondering, they aren’t exclusive to a vintage theme! If you’re channelling more of a boho-festival vibe or maybe a traditional country garden styled event, we think this set of colours will compliment your theme like a dream!
To prove our point that pastels are the way forward, we’ve put together a little collage of some pretty pastel pics for you to swoon over. If you like what you see, check out our ‘Pretty Pastel’ Pinterest board for more ideas and inspiration! x
