“We wanted the inside of the barn to equal the ethereal beauty of Dewsall’s grounds so I knew that the floral and foliage arrangements would be key to creating the desired impact. This would mean dressing all five beams and the gothic candle lit chandeliers, which is rather a large task.”
“For this, I knew it would make sense to enlist a florist that was used to the venue, I spoke to a couple of different florists that Dewsall had recommended but the ladies at The Great British Florist were just so friendly and helpful. After putting together my wish list, my Mum and I went along to meet Heather (what a perfect name for someone with her own florist business). They are based at a beautiful farm just outside Hereford and their strapline is Home Grown, Not Flown. For this reason, you can tell them what flowers you would like, but they can never guarantee what is available as it depends on the yield in the UK at the time. This was fine with me, as the only flowers I really wanted were freesias (my Nan and Mums favourite flower) and they were pretty sure they would be able to accommodate that, the rest I left up to them!”
“In the button holes and the bouquets, I wanted little acorns and pine cones and they spent the weeks before my wedding day foraging in the Herefordshire countryside and woodland collecting them which I just loved!”
“The Wainhouse beams were dressed with Hops, which made the barn have a lovely harvest smell to it when you walked in and with the backdrop of the twinkling fairy lights made a beautiful frame for our wedding breakfast room. The chandeliers and centre piece flowers were the same as the bouquets – pussy willow, pine cones with a pop of pink to bring it to life.”
