Sophie and Jim’s Bohemian Wedding Celebration

Sophie and Jim got married in May 2019 on a beautiful hot summers day at the most fabulous Welsh venue Coed. A unique venue set in unspoilt ancient woodland, yet not too far from busy Cardiff.

Their gorgeous wedding day was a relaxed and informal celebration of love with their close family and friends. Sophie and Jim wanted their flowers to reflect the wild and natural vibe of their venue. Sophie dreamed of a textured bouquet with lots of draping foliage and flowers in her and her bridesmaid’s hair.

I created for her a bridal bouquet full of fragrant eucalyptus and ferns with large sculptural succulents and thistle, softened with dainty wax flower and astrantia. Sophie and her bridesmaids wore wild complimenting foliage in their hair. Buttonholes from Jim and his groomsmen were a combination of fresh and dried flowers and foliage to match the bridal flowers. Jims buttonhole included a pheasant feather that looked great next to his brown floral tie and tweed suit!

The evening before Sophie and Jim’s wedding day with Coed’s permission we gathered ivy and wild flowers from the forest to decorate the ceremony room arch and staircase creating a truly magical forest scene.

I adored creating Sophie and Jim’s wild and relaxed wedding flowers and was so pleased that the colours I chose for her complimented the stunning Welsh scenery surrounding their unique, bohemian venue so perfectly.

“Ash designed my wedding flowers: a beautiful bouquet, flower crowns and buttonholes, as well as creating a floral arch. I was blown away by her professionalism and creativity. After collaborating with a mood board I was able to fully entrust the finer details to Ash and was completely thrilled with the results. We received so many compliments about her work, I would recommend her in a heartbeat”
