A Very February Wedding
This is a photo shoot I flowered at the fantastic Chiltern Open Air Museum in Buckinghamshire, this February. As we all know the summer wedding is most sought after, with the huge array of colourful summer blooms and the promise of sunshine gracing your day. But with 2 thirds of this years weddings being postponed and a lot of venues diary’s already booked for the following summer, couples will be looking at different seasons to configure their big day. SO, here is my example of a very February wedding day!
Photographer – Eneka Stewart, Props – Beryl Vintage, Macrame – Loubelle, Models – my wonderful friends Lana and Charles
The flowers I used for Lana’s headdress and bouquet were all grown locally and they included Hellebores, Chaenomele, Mahonia, Magnolia and Blossom. These are just a few of the gorgeous blooms which you can use in February for a super seasonal display!
To hang from the thatched roof I created a dried flower cloud, bringing a huge natural aura to the barn while demonstrating the winter season. If you want some extra colour to compliment the wintry scene then it's a good idea to look at options for your vessels and decor. I selected The Boho Shack's gorgeous coloured glass vases to bring some bright shades to the delicate colour scheme which complimented the seasonal flowers.
I took an essence from this centerpiece when designing the rest of the florals which spread the style throughout this whimsical day. Wooden stumps filled with elegant grasses and feathers decorated the entrance to the Round House which is situated amongst woodland. Dotted around Aborefield were horseshoes adorned with an array of dried flowers.
That wraps up my February wedding shoot! Hopefully this brings some inspiration for late winter weddings using only British Flowers!
If you have any questions about what seasonal flowers can be grown at The Nagundo Tree Flower Farm then please do let me know!
Sending lots of love to all the couples out there who have had to postpone their big day.
