Jennifer works close to our store and used to pass our shop on her way to work. Our flowers caught her eye so she started to buy flowers for her house as a treat. Soon she became a regular customer and it was always a pleasure to see her cheery face coming through the door. She is a real flower lover and we soon became friends.
As Jennifer herself said, “Your shop front always displayed beautiful flowers with a quirky edge and I knew that we would be in great hands on our special day.”
Jennifer’s brief was to create a mix and match style, with lots of wildflowers, something slightly out of the ordinary. She wanted something really unique and we think her wedding flowers really suited her upbeat, bubbly personality. Take a look at the pictures below, shared by dkphotography.pix, to see her fabulous creations.
Jennifer and Mark were married in July 2019 at Mother of Divine Grace Church in Raheny village. We created some very rustic arrangements for the ends of the pews and the bride and groom’s chairs, heavy on the foliage with sprinklings of tiny white blooms, eucalyptus and gypsophilia, all tied together with bows of raffia for a really natural feel.
There was also a table decoration around three white candles, with a simple yet elegant theme, using dark green mixed greenery and fresh white blooms, from large, crisp hydrangea to cute tanacetum.
Jennifer was absolutely blooming at seven months pregnant, a fantastic surprise that came along while they were planning the wedding! We loved her dress, with its exquisite lace, beautiful floral train, and its own unique design with beading and laces on the forearm. Her hair was fabulous too with her long, tumbling auburn curls and pretty hair decorations.
For the bride’s bouquet we put together a beautiful posy of wildflowers. We wanted something that would really bring some of Jennifer’s bright personality to the flowers, so we used plenty of colour from a wide variety of blooms. We kept the foliage light with only a little eucalyptus, the bouquet formed from plenty of daisy-like tanacetum, delphinium in bright blue and crisp white, star-like astransia and dahlias in canary yellow, burnt orange and magenta. Here it is pictured with Molly the dog.
The groom looked so handsome on the day and his buttonhole with bright yellow craspedia, spray chrysanthemums and wax flower, which contrasted perfectly with his bright blue suit.
For the bridesmaids and flower girl we created large wildflower posies similar to Jennifers, but this time in more simple colours, mostly white with a hint of blue. These were formed from an abundance of pretty tanacetum, fluffy gypsophilia and marguerite daisies with a touch of lavender for contrast. We think they almost look like giant handfuls of confetti.
After the church ceremony, the couple traveled in a cute beige VW camper van adorned with bunting to their reception in Tankardstown House in Slane. It’s an incredible venue, with beautifully ornate interiors and fabulous gardens, and a light airy dining room featuring a glass ceiling.
For the venue we created simple table decorations from dark green eucalyptus, marguerite daisies and white roses for a touch of romance. The top table was adorned with a large display in the same theme, dark green mixed foliage with elegant white blooms; large heads of hydrangea, cute snapdragons, tiny wax flower and fluffy gypsophilia.
We’re delighted that Jennifer and Mark had such a wonderful day surrounded by such elegance and it was an absolute pleasure to create such unique wedding flowers for this lovely couple. Wishing you many happy years ahead!
Here’s what Jennifer had to say about her experience:
“Your flowers were amazing and all our guests loved them and were asking who did them. I cannot praise you and Kasia enough. We will definitely be recommending you to everyone, you’re so professional and your friendly manner. Thank you again for our beautiful wild flowers and being part of our special day. Highly recommended to any brides to be.”
Thank you for your kind words Jennifer & Mark.
