Although Emily & Alex's wedding is full of pink and blue wedding flowers, blue is the furthest thing it has us feeling! The couple opted for an English country garden feel and decked out their cricket club venue with a stunning marquee full of flowers! Captured by Recommended supplier, Carrie Lavers Photography and Recommended supplier, Time and Oath, the day is simply beautiful. Emily & Alex also chose Recommended supplier, The Wedding Shop for their gift list.
Pink and blue wedding flowers for a church wedding
We found most of our suppliers through the Rock My Wedding Recommended Suppliers including Carrie Lavers and Time & Oath. They were both excellent - they helped us to feel relaxed, didn't intrude on the day and recorded the most incredible images and footage. We wanted to use small businesses as much as possible, which is what led us to choose Ruby & Bloom Paper Co (our stationery supplier), Hannah Berry Flowers (our florist), The Sweet Life Bakes (our cake supplier), Carrie Lavers (our photographer) and Time & Oath (our videographer).
Pink and blue wedding flowers
Emily & Alex held their reception at the cricket club where Emily's dad has played and volunteered since she was a baby. It doesn't host weddings so it was important to focus attention on making it look the part. They used Hannah Berry Flowers to help with this. She created all the pink and blue wedding flowers, which guests still comment on as the most incredible flowers they have seen! They are just stunning! Alex is a big cricket fan so holding the wedding at the club also meant everyone could have a match after the wedding breakfast! Their fave moments were seeing each other at the end of the aisle with The Bossard Quartet playing, and how beautiful the church and reception venue looked! Plus, partying with all their closest friends and family. They made the day fun and enjoyable with a photo booth from Vintage Camper Booths.
English Country Garden Style
The overall vibe was English Country Garden. Relaxed and fun - this flowed from their wedding reception at a cricket club. The wedding was held in a village in Hampshire called, Dogmersfield. The ceremony was at All Saints Church, which had a little footpath at the back of the church to get to Dogmersfield Cricket Club for the marquee reception. This meant guests didn't need to worry about travelling far between venues which was essential to the couple as they wanted guests to be able to enjoy the day and have fun. Alex & Emily's friend, Simon, read I Love You by Roy Croft during the ceremony. The blue colour scheme adds so much elegance to the day and we love those blue bridesmaid dresses and the blue stationery by Ruby & Bloom Paper Co.
Those blue bridesmaid dresses match the English country garden vibes perfectly!
Our florist, Hannah Berry Flowers, was terrific and really stole the show, we can't sing her praises highly enough! Ruby & Bloom Paper Co created beautiful stationery and deserves a shout-out for helping us with a last-minute request during the week of our wedding, she was remarkable. The Sweet Life Bakes also deserves a special mention, the cake was exquisite - delicious and covered in wildflowers. Guests loved the vintage campervan photo booth and we've loved looking back over the photos!
