It's the first week in July - or at least it was when I did these wedding flowers - and it is the last of the peonies until next year. Such beautiful flowers but such a short season and luckily for Carly her wedding was just in time to catch them.
Ivory roses, pink peonies, lavender, stocks, a touch of gypsophila and a little mixed foliage make a gorgeous wedding bouquet for Carly. A real breath of summer and beautifully scented too. I loved it !

Rose place setting at the Montague Arms, every place setting was decorated in this way for a beautiful finishing touch to the tables.
The long tables were decorated with mixed wedding themed vase designs of summer flowers with tea lights in between. You can see the rose place settings and the pots of jam acting as favours. The overall effect is beautiful.

Peonies and log fires, not something you see together very often ! It might have been mid summer but clearly no-one told the weather. It could have been worse but it wasn't good - at all so the fires were lit to add some warmth and help dry us all out !
That just leaves me to say thank you so much Carly for choosing me to design and create your wedding flowers for you, I absolutely loved working on this beautiful summery scheme. I hope you had a fabulous day and very many congratulations on your marriage.
