Hannah and Stuart - Peonies and Libraries















When I first met Hannah to talk about wedding flowers I knew straight away that I would love the look of her wedding. Together, we pored over pictures of beautiful summer flowers, unable to choose between all the different varieties because Hannah liked them all. We eventually decided on fluffy, soft pink peonies, hot pink hydrangea, snap dragons and sweet peas, bouvardia and queen anne's lace and cornflowers for hints of deep, deep blue. 

Hannah had collected lots of beautiful old books, which she used as table decorations along with a gorgeous mismatch of jam jars, bottles and tea cups which we filled with flowers. When I arrived at St Andrews in the Square on the morning of the wedding I also discovered an amazing sweet table full of home made deliciousness, and a wonderful old suitcase for all the thank you cards. Best of all were the family wedding pictures of Hannah and Stuarts parents and grandparents, lovingly displayed with some beautiful old cameras. I got teary then and there! I spent the rest of the set up beaming at all the prettiness and absorbing all the details Hannah and Stuart had put into their wedding.

All pictures courtesy of Lillian and Leonard - the rest of the wedding in all its loveliness is on their blog here.
