Elopement flowers…

Yvonne Coomber

I’m getting excited about our Spring elopements coming up next month.  We’re fully booked for March and April which is fab!  All our elopement flowers are provided by Amanda Randell  super Master (mistress!) florist.  We are so lucky to have her as our resident elopement florist.    To go all M&S ad for a moment, this is not just any florist, this is a Chelsea Gold Medal winning florist who creates beautiful, breathtaking elopement flowers for each of our couples.

Today we’re looking at the elopement flowers from some of our recent elopement weddings.    As you’ll see they’re all very different.   Amanda creates flowers just for YOUR wedding and to YOUR specification.   If you know exactly what you want, let Amanda know and she’ll create something even more beautiful.   If you think you don’t know anything about flowers, don’t worry!  Just give Amanda the vaguest idea about what you might like and she’ll put together something better than you could ever have imagined.

Mel wanted a combination of pale blues and dusky pinks for her elopement flowers last March.    Amanda brought these colours together with roses and eucalyptus leaves in this gorgeous bridal bouquet.   We later re-used the bouquet as the sweetheart table centrepiece for Mel and Tim’s wedding breakfast in front of the fire.

Marie wanted something completely different to complement her silver grey and sequin wedding gown.   She asked for red and black elopement flowers to make a statement.    Using red anemones and dark foliage, Amanda put together a perfect alternative look which Marie loved.

Aimee wanted a wilder, looser, ‘just-picked’ look in pale pink and white for her elopement flowers.  Amanda used roses, white astilbes and white anemones in both the bouquet and as additional flowers for the semi-naked wedding cake – Aimee said they were ‘perfect’.

Amanda also created the flowers for our elopement photo shoot last year.   I wanted a classic green and red bouquet for a Christmas shoot.   Amanda put together this fab table foliage garland studded with cones and velvety red roses

Kay was very clear she didn’t want roses for her elopement flowers.   She wanted autumn colours including red, orange, blue and purple!   Using ranunculus, erygium, kale and berries Amanda created this sumptuous bouquet for Kay and buttonhole for groom Andrew.   Amanda supplied additional flowers for the iced mini wedding cake.

Sarah and Justin married here with their little daughter Maddie as the only attendant. Sarah wanted a bouquet in pale and dusky pinks and a mini version of the same arrangement for Maddie.   Amanda used stem and tiny spray roses with nerines and grey foliage.  We re-styled the larger bouquet for the wedding breakfast centrepiece and the smaller one for the cake table.
