Blush and Grey

Pure and natural with a lightness of touch and sensual undertones. The sense of innocence is heightened by the lush green backdrop, abundance of British florals with creeping foliage and ripe fruit.

This look is inspired by wild, overgrown English gardens where flowers grow freely.   A delicate and simple palette of rich green foliage and soft grey is the epitome of ‘grown-up’ femininity and the perfect backdrop for summer blooms. This is a pure, natural scheme with a lightness of touch and sensual undertones.

On the table, antique silver cutlery and sparkling cut glass are tempered with contemporary organic crockery for an indulgent feel without fussiness.  In contrast, flowers have escaped from their usual positions on tables or pedestals to spread across the floor, climbing and trailing up and around the table.

Dainty poppies, frilly garden roses and delicately scented sweetpea were mixed in with foliage picked from the hedgerows in a natural and romantic style, with touches of dove grey senecio foliage and silver speckled poppy heads. All the blooms were grown in Cheshire and arranged in a loose and ethereal way to add softness and romance to the table.

An elegant duo of white wedding cakes is understated and chic and makes an alluring centrepiece, decorated with luscious berries and flowers.

Handwritten vellum stock is innovative and trend focused while still elegant, timeless, soft and feminine. Raw edges and black ink add an edge.

Continuity of textures and materials ensures the day feels fully co-ordinated and effortlessly styled; vellum pouches filled with a handful of dried petal confetti are displayed in antique silver trays and glass boxes.
