Summer Wedding Flowers

It’s the season of romance and here at Tolly’s we have been busy creating bespoke designs for soon-to-be newlyweds at a host of beautiful and historic country venues across East Anglia. From eye-catching floral displays full of English charm, to vintage elegance and glamorous cascading designs, feel inspired by our latest wedding flower creations in Essex, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

These sunny pillar arrangements in shades of peaches and cream added the perfect finishing touch to this gorgeous outdoor wedding venue. The floral arrangements for this elegant pavilion, set in immaculate grounds, presented a beautiful backdrop for the happy couple.

Romantic roses in soft shades added to the enchantment of this stunning wedding reception in a beautiful country barn. The breathtaking table arrangements worked perfectly against the rustic background of exposed brickwork and pretty chandeliers hung from high open beams. 

Tolly’s brought English glamour and understated luxury to this Vintage marquee wedding reception. These charming centrepieces had bright home grown blooms arranged in delicate jam jars, wrapped in decorated paper and ribbons, for a quintessentially British feel.

Tolly’s Creates Spectacular Displays for a Prestigious Newmarket Event

Tolly’s of Newmarket were granted the honour of designing magnificent flower arrangements for the high profile Darley Stallion Parade.

This is the 31st year running that Tolly’s has designed the displays for the impressive three-day annual event at Dalham Hall Stud in Newmarket.

The prestigious occasion was hosted by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai, who staged a glamorous lunch at the headquarters of his world-renowned Darley breeding operation.

Head designer Tolly Considine said the three-day event was attended by a thousand people a day.  Invited guests were treated to a feast with delights from across the globe against a background of soothing quartet music. 

Mr Considine said: “It was a huge honour and privilege to design the flowers for the Darley Stallion Parade as this is such an esteemed event.”

This year’s theme was bright colours and the dramatic displays featured pinks, lilacs, purples and greens.

Guests at the memorable event saw some of the most incredible – and most valuable – stallions in the world close up as they were paraded on pristine paddocks.

This year’s Darley July cup was won by Muhaarar, owned by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the deputy ruler of Dubai.
