Real Wedding: Jen & Henri


Blog header image showing Jen and Henri together

This gorgeous couple got married at Doddington Hall, Lincoln in September 2020. Their vision for wedding flowers was to use a classic pairing of greens and whites to create a timeless, low-key elegance. This colour combination is, by far, our most requested style, but it honestly feels different each time. We get the same level of excitement each time we receive our floral delivery. And while the colours are often the same, the feel and finish is always changing.

Violet & Vine wedding flowers - hexagonal arch

Henri built this fabulous hexagonal arch for their wedding day. It framed their incredible semi-naked cake. They asked if we could create an arrangement for this structure. We went very heavy on greenery and used clematis trails to soften some of the sides. We then used big flowers to ensure the colour was not lost in the scale of the arrangement. These included Cafe Au Lait Dahlias, Avalanche Roses and Japanese Anemone from our garden.


Our greenery selection for Jen & Henri’s day was:

Eucalyptus

Pittosporum

Soft ruscus

Ivy

Clematis trails
