Spring marquee flowers for an at home wedding near Leicester

You are currently viewing Spring marquee flowers for an at home wedding near Leicester

Our Midlands based couple chose a marquee at home as the perfect way to blend two cultures in their spring wedding. Their multicultural day included Jewish and Sikh traditions and was the most incredible party!

Fran was amazing to work with for our wedding, she helped us to realise our colour scheme with incredible flowers that really popped and made our day beautiful.

Spring wedding flower brief

The brief for this spring wedding was romantic and elegant, using colour to bring impact inside the black canvas of the marquee. The palette including pinks and dramatic red accents as these symbolize prosperity and auspiciousness to newlyweds in the Sikh culture. The Bride particularly loves apple blossom and wanted to include roses as it is her name!

[Fran] came to us with lots of great ideas, such as a flower meadow down our aisle and cascading flowers down our chuppah for our ceremony. She creatively repurposed these for a floral photo booth after our ceremony was over so we could enjoy them for the rest of the day.

What we loved the most

Another wedding where it is so hard to choose our favourite spring wedding flower arrangements. At a very close second place, it would have to be the chuppah. Elegant, romantic, naturalistic yet entirely impactful and we completely transformed this arrangement into a bespoke photobooth after the ceremony.

The showstopping feature was definitely the floral chandelier. A 3m diameter hoop of flowers suspended above the bar and positioned just in front of the marquee entrance. That’s over 9m of ceiling installation hanging flowers! It was filled with scented sweet peas and caused guests to gasp as they walked in.

The chandelier was lit as the sun set so it could continue to be a feature through into the evening party.

Sustainability focus

Fran was brilliant to work with … and we loved her commitment to ethical flower sourcing.

R & R | 2022

Around a third the flowers for this spring wedding were English grown. A cold spring had put back the growing season and the volume of flowers needed meant there simply were not enough flowers available locally grown.

However, the flowers chosen kept with the spring wedding theme. No one but us would have known which of the ranunculus were locally grown and which were imported. The only flowers not entirely of the season were the peonies – included as the Mother of the Bride’s favourite – and roses – included as a favourite of the Bride. This blend of seasonal, locally grown ingredients with the more commercially available imported flowers is something we specialise in at Limewood Flowers. Curating the aesthetic for your day in the most sustainable way we can.

While there are few reliable statistics, the data that exists suggests English grown flowers have one tenth of the carbon footprint of imported flowers. So, even the small portion of flowers that were sourced locally grown will have made a big impact.

In addition, no floral foam was used and almost no single use plastic was used. The only single use plastic was tape and cable ties. All the waste was separated with flowers going to compost and all paper and cardboard recycled.
