Spring wedding brief

The brief for this wedding showcase at Fillongley Hall was a more sustainable fine art wedding ceremony in spring. The colour palette was a classic green and white with just a little added lilac and pastel blue. Creating a timeless and elegant look.

What we loved the most

We loved creating the floral installation at the back of the aisle. It created that wow moment as you stepped through the door. All of the flowers in this installation were foraged from the Fillongley Hall estate (with permission!) creating a truly outside in feel. It was completely of the moment for an English countryside wedding in May.

Sustainability focus

There are many ways in which wedding flowers can be made more sustainable without compromising on style or aesthetics.

All the flowers and foliage used in this wedding showcase were British grown. While there are few reliable statistics, the data that exists suggests British grown flowers have one tenth of the carbon footprint of imported flowers.

In addition, no floral foam was used and almost no single use plastic was used. The only single use plastic was tape, which we use sparingly to hold the ‘mechanics’ in place in our vessels.
