Vintage Style Wedding Flowers

November 9, 2019

Nicola came to visit us to arrange her wedding flowers as she was inspired by one of our previous brides, Sinead.  Nicola is a lovely, friendly girl and she was looking for a relaxed and fun style, something fairly loose and fluid with pastels, peach tones and greenery.  We were delighted with the brief and confident we could put together the perfect collection of arrangements for her.


Nicola and Barrie had an autumn wedding, in September 2018 at Boyne Hill House in Navan.  The venue is a picturesque country house, set in a beautiful parkland estate. As you can see from the pictures, we created a very romantic collection for her, with an old world feel which complimented the vintage air of the venue, with its elegant chandeliers, decorative wallpaper and antique furniture. 


Nicola’s bouquet was made up of classic white roses, white lisianthus and the soft, peach coloured blooms of David Austin roses.  We used white wax flower and astransia to give a star like feel, which echoed the pretty floral lace design on her dress, and plenty of foliage, made up of the deep green and silvery tones of eucalyptus.

Nicola also requested a hair comb which we made from eucalyptus and wax.  We thought she looked beautiful with her loose tousled curls swept back elegantly at the side with her comb, and the closed buds of wax like confetti floating above her head.

The bridesmaid’s bouquets were smaller, but had the same theme as Nicola’s bouquet, the cream and silvery tones complimented their shimmery, ivory gowns perfectly.

We made up buttonholes for the groom and several of the gentlemen, who all looked very smart in their light grey suits, for the page boys and mothers of the bride and groom, mainly from eucalyptus and wax, in keeping with the main bouquets.

The wedding took place in the Secret Garden, the aisle made up of a white carpet beautifully lined with topiary trees.

And in the evening they continued to celebrate outside with sparklers for a truly magical feel. 

It was an absolute privilege to provide the flowers for this beautiful wedding, which was so full of character, and we think the gentle pastel theme was captured perfectly by the photographer igstudio.ie

Nicola was delighted with her flowers and emailed us afterwards to give her thanks:


“Hi Lilla,

I just wanted to thank you for the amazing job you did with our flowers!  The bouquets blew me away when I first saw them and my hair comb was just perfect, as were the buttonholes!  We had so many compliments all day! Thank you again so so much, everything was so perfect!

Nicola xx”
