How we styled yellow flowers for the perfect summer barn bridal
Hasn’t the weather been absolutely glorious this weekend? The sun in Yorkshire has us looking forward to all of the summer weddings we’ll be working on this year so we thought there was no better time to share these images from Keeley and Johnny’s vibrant and rustic summer wedding.
The couple had just one goal in mind for their wedding party - or Wedfest as it later became known - fun! So we worked with Keeley to create the most beautiful mix of bright, country flowers for her bridal bouquet. We opted for playful pinky-orange Miss Piggy roses set against piano roses in a deep red, purple and cream delphinium, bright pops of violet blue from the cornflowers, all tied around a two statement sunflowers - the epitome of fun! We used large craspedia heads and lots of tiny English daisies to bring the bright yellow through the whole bouquet. And finally we mixed in handfuls of sweet pea and mint to give the bouquet an air of having been scooped up from a wonderfully scented cottage garden just moments before.
For the groomsmen we created seven unique buttonholes, all centred around one, or sometimes two, small mustard yellow craspedia next to brilliant pink delphinium heads, gypsophilia and de-petal-ed cornflowers, all bound together with string with trailing string. Combined with Johnny and his groomsmen’s matching gingham shirt, bowtie and suspenders attire these rustic buttonholes looked just right in amongst the straw bales, wildflower meadow and farmyard of the couple’s delightful barn venue, Castle Farm in Knaresborough. For the wedding’s celebrant, Harry Gration, and the bride’s father we softened the colour palette for their buttonholes by using white spray roses and waxflower next to the brilliant blue of the cornflower.
The relaxed and colourful vibe of the couple’s Yorkshire ‘wedding festival’ has been perfectly captured by wedding photographers, James and Lianne, and you can see more pictures of Keeley and Johnny’s wedding celebration over on their blog.
