It has been a very, VERY long time. Apologies, the flowers have been demanding all our attention this year, but we are not complaining when they have been as pretty as this lovely wedding back in the Spring that we are sharing with you today.
It was then off to Rowallan Castle which we filled with highly scented seasonal Magnolia, Blossom and Viburnum and warmed the air with pillar candles in storm lanters. Just lovely.
What a miserable, wet time we are all having at the moment! Time to fire up the wood burner, pop some scones in the oven, and start to reflect what has been an incredible year of weddings for us here at Myrtle & Bracken.
We have clocked up over 17,000 miles travelling the length and breadth of the country, flowering up beautiful spaces along the way. We have worked with some really lovely clients and we are so grateful to be invited to play a part in a really special time for them and their friends and families. We have also been getting to grips with our first growing season for our cutting garden, and are really loving living and working in tandem with the seasons. Although it has been wet. Very wet!
So today we are thinking back to a hot sunny day in June, when Ruth and Paul had the loveliest romantic wedding at Blairquhan Castle.
Scented flowers were the order of the day, with home grown Stock, Sweet Peas, Oregano and Mint. Add in some David Austin Juliet roses, and the castle was filled with the delicate garden scent of summer. We loved draping the staircase in wildy romantic garlands, framing Ruths entrance to marry her beau. Lovely.
Craig and Eva Sanders were there to capture all the romance, thank you so much for allowing us to share these dreamy images.
At the end of July, we were in Glasgow’s Westend for the beautiful Gillian’s wedding.
I had so much fun creating Gillian’s loose and wild trailing bouquet which included David Austin Roses, Chocolate Cosmos and an abundance of herbs and grasses. She wore a delicate floral headpiece of Passionflower and Princess Caroline Delphinium heads – just lovely.
How naturally beautiful it all turned out to be.
Thanks to Caro for the beautiful images, you can see more of the wedding over on her blog.
Back in August, we had the pleasure of providing the flowers for a lovely wedding celebration at West Brewery in Glasgow.
Janet’s brief to us was to fill her wedding day with bright seasonal blooms and her bouquet was a rustic explosion of oranges and blues.
