I think Claire might be one of the happiest and glowy-est brides I have ever seen. Not only was she deliriously joyful at the prospect of becoming Mark’s wife, she was also twenty four weeks pregnant when they said “I Do” at the Losehill House Hotel in the Peak District.
That would be a double whammy of immense news then.
I am especially loving the thrown-together bouquets, the daisy buttonholes and all of the sun dappled couple portraits, captured beautifully by Chris Barber.
I really wanted natural, UK grown garden flowers. We try to buy our fruit and veg in season and it seemed crazy to pay for flowers flown in out of season from overseas, when we have so many beautiful flowers in the country, especially in May. Our florist was Rachel at Catkin Flowers, who are based at Doddington Hall near Lincoln, and I knew as soon as I saw her style that she was going to be perfect. She was amazing – she grows most of the flowers she uses in her cutting garden, and the others come from local growers. I’m not very good on flower names, so my descriptions of what I wanted were very vague (soft colours, natural, unstructured, with peonies in my bouquet if possible) and translated that into the most gorgeous bouquets and arrangements.
My bouquet was soft pink peonies, oxeye daisies, cow parsley, and grasses, and the bridesmaids bouquets were primarily daisies, cow parsley and grasses. The men had daisies with herbs in their buttonholes, and the table arrangements were a mix of different garden flowers – I can’t remember them all, sorry, but every arrangement was a little bit different from the next!… View the full post.
