Hannah & Phil’s Spring Wedding

May seems like a long time ago…  while much of England and Wales have been battered with winds and ever so much rain, it is great to remember that Spring comes after Winter and, while I love the snow, there is hope of warmer days.

Hannah found Ivy Pip & Rose through a Rock my Wedding feature last year, and was looking for some natural (but not too natural) blooms for her wedding at The Artisan of Clerkenwell.

Hannah and Phil did not want an overly formal wedding day with the focus being able to spend time with their friends and family.  For Hannah’s bouquet, I used lots of freesias, Hannah’s favourite flower and a good measure of foliage.  As for a spring wedding, spring flowers include peonies, forget me knots and sweet peas which fitted the brief perfectly.  The flowers were mainly blue and white, with a couple David Austin Juliet roses to soften the palette.

Hannah had really thought about the details and bought a lovely selection of vases from H&M.  The H&M Home range is really undersold.  I often go hunting there for interesting vases, plates and candles which are ‘on trend’ and as it is H&M the price is always reasonable.  There were lots of other details such as the strings of stars across the balcony,  candles in wine bottles and pictures of family which really personalised the space.  The staff at the Artisan, were great too and when I was setting up, they were happily all hands on deck when it came to decorating.

The super pictures by Dale Weeks are fresh and fun, and Hannah’s Charlie Brear dress is just perfect. So here you are.


The colours; ivory, powder blue and blush;

The Style; relaxed and pretty; and
