The Porters

Cotswolds, UK

Back on my home turf – I was full of nostalgia zipping around the English country side, preparing for this one. In the incredibly grand Bibury Court, set in the heart of The Cotswolds, the rambling gardens so wonderful, half my job was already done.

The bride, Louise, loved the vintage, english country garden look and also was drawn towards a palette of soft mauves, purples, pinks and white. Romantic and loose, the flowers helped create a pathway to guide guests from the Church, adjacent to the house, and through a gate into the walled gardens. The archway over the church door was full of fragrance and color, the freesias gently nodding their heads in the breeze to greet the guests. I wanted to create the effect that it had been there for some time, establishing itself on the ancient wall.

The day prior, Louise had organized for her close friends and family to assist me with the flowers for the tables – a loose, colorful eclectic grouping of jars and vases, collected by Louiseā€™s mother, on each table with pops of color, created relaxed and informal table centres.
