Mansion House Wedding

A huge congratulations to Elizabeth and her new husband who got married at the weekend at the beautiful Mansion House in Clifton Bristol. 

We managed to bring the sunshine inside on the rainy June weekend with these stunning garden style arrangements using the most natural and delicate summer blooms and grasses. The floral designs made quite a statement in the bar, ceremony and dining room.

To fit the natural garden style theme of the wedding, we covered the containers with moss and recreated a wild meadow effect with the freshest flowers in a soft and delicate colour pallet.

Blush tones alongside pale yellows and creams with pops of sky blue were used. Seasonal foxtail lilies, love in the mist, lavender, stocks, daisies, roses and grasses were among some of the flowers that we used with an abundance of mixed foliages to create the look.

The Peony!

Summer is on the horizon and the arrival of everyone's favourite flower, - The Peony!

With its stunning display of colours, layers of delicate petals and a light fragrance it is no surprise that the peony has been enchanting people for years.

The peony is a summer flower which is only available for a short amount of time. From late April to early July. A lot of people know of the light pink Peony, but the flower is also available in hot pink, red, white and coral.

It comes in an array of different shapes but always starting as a tight buds. You can get a single layered peony with large beaming petals or a peony with layers upon layers of feathering petals such as the 'Sarah Bernhardt'.

This luxuriously bold flower is a beautiful bridal flower. It signifies wealth, elegance, romance and honour. Here at The Flower Shop we have years of experience working with Peonies. We also have a great selection of peony bouquets on our website which can be delivered anywhere within the Bristol postcode or Nationwide.
