Held at the end of September last year, Claire and Duncan’s wedding was a small and intimate affair, but certainly not lacking in style! 1940s Hollywood glam was the order of the day, with the celebrations beginning at Russell-Cotes Art Gallery and Museum (now a superb new wedding ceremony location) and continuing at Hotel Miramar on the cliff-top in Bournemouth.
Claire had a very clear idea about the look she wanted for the flowers, but wasn’t sure how to achieve it. In her own words, they needed to be “not too structured, not too white, not too many compact roses, a bit of texture and some berries”. Luckily, that told me all I really needed to know and I knew we’d get on.
The bouquets included hydrageas, some (not too compact) roses, chrysanthemums, carnations (yes, they’re cool again folks!) and foliage including gorgeous furry silver senecio.
