Tolly’s amazing wedding flowers recently featured in the award-winning blog ‘Love My Dress’, which is read by thousands of people across the globe.
Our beautiful wedding flower arrangements captured the imagination of the ‘Love My Dress’ blog after we decorated a church and marquee for a military wedding in the heart of the East Anglian countryside.
The Tolly’s Flowers design team are known for creating magnificent and enchanting floral displays that provide the perfect backdrop to a dream wedding.
Our brief was to create simple, elegant white and green arrangements to enhance the beauty of the country-based reception venue and the 14th-century village church, where the nuptials were held.
We decorated the Grade II listed St Andrew’s Church in Helions Bumpstead, on the Suffolk/Cambridgeshire border, with dramatic pedestal and font arrangements. After exchanging rings and vows the happy couple, Sophie and Todd, exited through the church’s ancient gateway which was adorned with flowers.
At the reception, we hung a gorgeous flower ball that defied gravity from the centre of the marquee to create a spectacular focal point; each of the dining tables, including the head table, were fashioned with pretty runners of green foliage interspersed with large white flowers.
Our decorations followed the brief to the letter and were the perfect blend of modern and traditional.
At Tolly’s Flowers we pride ourselves on attention to detail and even the shiny, polished open top military truck, which transported the bridesmaids to and from the church, was decked out with garlands of white flowers to create a wonderful canopy.
The romantic occasion was captured in its full glory by photographer Nick Tucker, who is known for his documentary editorial style. His journalistic photos, which included pictures of our stunning wedding flowers, appeared on Love My Dress’ Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google + and Pinterest pages, and these each have a following of between 2,500 to 621,000 readers.
For the couple’s special day, in June this year, Sophie wore a gorgeous white off the shoulder Amanda Wakeley dress, featuring a chic architectural neckline, and carried a classic green and white bouquet, while Todd wore military uniform. The bridesmaids had flowing dresses with individual necklines and paired their champagne coloured gowns with simple flat sandals and modern, minimalist white bouquets.
The cake was decorated with green foliage, which the couple cut with the groom’s ceremonial sword, much to the delight of the guests.
Sophie and Todd had enlisted the services of wedding planner Claire Clarke Weddings, to ensure the entire day went smoothly from start to finish; it was a fantastic occasion and even the weather was perfect for the special day. Big congratulations to Sophie and Todd from all of us at Tolly’s Flowers!
