Lisa’s Winter Wedding Flowers

In November I really enjoyed working on Lisa and Alex’s winter wedding flowers at Wroxall Abbey. The couple took a lot of time and trouble to create a really unique wedding. When it came to designing their wedding flowers we developed ideas together combining elements from my portfolio and Lisa’s imagination.

For the wedding flowers we took the theme of a winter woodland and Lisa was very keen to combine moss and twigs with beautiful phalaenopsis orchid flowers. For her bridal bouquet she chose our stunning phalaenopsis shower bouquet. Her two flower girls held moss balls with gorgeous orchid detailing. The moss matched perfectly with the crushed deep green velvet jackets that they all wore.

In the photos you can also see that Lisa chose to have delicate twigs, moss and orchids wired into her hair.

The gents all wore phalaenopsis orchid buttonholes backed with galix leaves. The groom’s also had tiny moss and twig detailing to make it extra special. The flowers fitted in perfectly with their country style wedding suits.

In Wren’s chapel at Wroxall Abbey I used white Singapore orchids to create elegant pew ends. I also placed our mini and medium goldfish bowls filled with white Singapore orchids and beargrass onto the font top and chapel windowsills. In between these arrangements I placed moss and twigs to fit in with the theme. Candles also featured everywhere, as it was a 4 o’clock wedding it looked so romantic by candlelight.

For the wedding centrepieces I filled our tall cone vases with moss, bark, cones, and seedpods, and arranged white phalenopsis orchids hanging off tall willow and hazel twigs. These were also surrounded by lots of tea lights and tiny fir cones. This fitted perfectly with the place settings, which also featured the fir cones.

I really enjoyed creating the top table arrangement, Lisa left it to me to create a piece, which incorporated candles and looked like a woodland floor. Not only did this arrangement feature the twigs, moss, and bark it also featured both white Singapore and phalaenopsis orchids. It really was stunning and full of texture and interest.

It’s always so lovely to see everything come together on the day and Lisa and Alex had really gone to a lot of trouble to source everything to fit in with their own unique winter wedding theme.
