Katrina and Sam's wildflower inspired Spring wedding

Katrina and Sam were married on a beautiful sunny day in May at Christ Church in Weston-Super-Mare with their reception at Coombe Lodge in Blagdon. Their flowers were inspired by the wildflowers of the Cornish coastal path where the couple love to walk. Shades of purple from the heather and yellow from the gorse flowers were used to inspire the colours with the flowers arranged in a wild style incorporating seed pods, wild grasses and delicate coastal wildflowers such as sea campion, daisies, cow parsley, buttercups and Cerinthe major var. purperescens.

Bridal Party Flowers

Katrina and her bridesmaids carried bouquets of Ranunculus, Anemones, Achillea, Iris, Honesty, poppies, sweet peas and buttercups, tied with pale yellow hand-dyed silk ribbons. Sam and the groomsmen's buttonholes were made form purple honesty seed pods, pale yellow ranunculus, white sea kale, astrantia and pale purple allium flowers, tied with matching pale yellow silk ribbon.

"We really liked the fact that all the flowers that Sacha used for her arrangements were from her own flower farm, were seasonal and sustainably sourced. She was brilliant from the start with a consultation to see what we wanted. We wanted the feel of the Cornish coast and she fitted the brief beautifully. It was also great closer to the time to go and see the flower farm and leading up to the day she sent us pictures of what was growing so we had an idea what our arrangement might look like. She was helpful in being flexible with the arrangements so it would better suit our budget which is always helpful when planning a wedding! All in all I would recommend The Floral Potager to anyone planning a wedding."

Venue Flowers

Two large urns on plinths were used to create a statement at first the church and then moved to the reception room at Coombe Lodge. The tables centres were decorated with handmade ceramic vases and bowls made by local potter Rachel Whydle and filled abundantly with flowers.
