Jess and Isaac Mid-July Wedding at Manorbier

When Jess first contacted us, it was clear straight away that this is a lady who knows about flowers (No pressure!). Having worked in a florists shop as a Saturday girl, Jess and her family were keen to do a bit of the floristry themselves and very quickly decided on one of our DIY packages, which we call the 'half and half'. In this package we create the more technical elements of bouquets and buttonholes and provide you with 2 DIY venue buckets.

Soft pastel colour bouquet with escaping elements

For her bouquet Jess wanted soft pastels and whites with some escaping elements and July is a great month for Welsh grown flowers with plenty of choice, it was actually harder to decide what not to put in! This bouquet features Roses, the last of the years peonies, the first of the dahlias plus cosmos, veronica, herbs such as mint and oregano, honeysuckle and sanguisorba. The Bridesmaid's bouquets (Of which there were 4) were a smaller version of Jess's bouquet, each one picking out a slightly different element, ensuring they were all a little bit different from each other but still cohesive. You won't get any off the peg bouquets from us, each creation (even the bridesmaids) are carefully selected, bespoke and unique.

Jess and Isaac's perfect day was an elegant church wedding by the sea in the gorgeous little village of Manorbier near Tenby. Jess arrived in style in the cutest Morris Minor driven by her Dad. The day before was wild and windy, but the sun came out to play for the big day creating a beautiful bright but hazy light (Our favourite!).

Love this confetti shot!

Jess and Isaac entrusted O&C photography to capture their perfect day. This outstanding Pembrokeshire based husband and wife team have a great eye and really know how to capture natural moments. We're completely blown away with how elegant and natural these photos look and how the light they captured make the colours of the flowers pop!

The buttonholes were a mixture of roses, rosemary, nigella, and sea holly. We think they look greats on Isaac's RAF formal dress.

We love how Isaac chose to buck tradition and wear his buttonhole on his right pocket instead of the left lapel. As much as we love tradition, we don't think it is the only place for men to wear their flowers and think that this buttonhole placement balances out the hilt of Isaac's sword perfectly. We love experimenting with gentleman's flowers and have recently added pocket square boutonnières to our repertoire, the latest trend in groom wear.

Wild and windy Pembrokeshire. It's alright for Isaac, he doesn't have a floaty dress and bouquet to deal with!

Castlemead Wedding venue

For the reception Jess and Isaac chose the very classy Castlemead in Manorbier, they used their DIY venue buckets to create wildflower vases that could be dotted around the tables. Simple but effective and very in keeping with the venue.

Selecting and creating the flowers for this wedding was an absolute pleasure, we love everything about the relaxed intimate nature and were blown away with the quality of the photos! Afterwards Jess was kind enough to email us to say how much she loved the flowers and how they were exactly what she'd been hoping for. Llongyfarchiadau Jess and Isaac!
