English Garden Wedding

by Barbara Schneider


This is a wedding I designed the flowers for this past June. It was one of the most unique and special weddings Far Hills Florist has ever been involved in. The wedding took place early on Saturday afternoon  in the garden of the Bride's family home  followed by an English style tea.. In the evening there was a fabulous reception at Carillon Park in the Transportation Center.

The details of this wedding were so special and they were beautifully captured by Braun Photography. Notice the bunting, made by the Bride's Mother on the fence and along the rail in the Transportation Center.  Also, the use of antique tablecloths collected by the Bride & her Mom to use for the wedding. I also loved the lavender sprig tucked in each napkin. The lavender came from the Mother Of The Brides garden and I used it in both the bridal bouquet and crown. I also loved what the bridal party wore, both for the wedding and the change for the formal reception in the evening.

We attended this wedding reception as guests and it was magical!  Perfect June weather- no humidity or bugs- it could not have been more special or amazing!  

Truly, a wedding I will never forget.
