Wedding: 08/07/2018

A bride who spends her days as a florist means flowers were always going to be the main event on her wedding day.

Donna-Marie, 33, married Nicholas, 38, on July 8, 2017 with 80 guests at Porthmawr Country House in Crickhowell. “We wanted a weekend event that was solely for our use that we could use and decorate with flowers freely,” explains Donna. “It was a flowery explosion of colour with glam rose gold accents in a country and house and my vision all fell into place.”

Summery corals, peaches, pinks and yellows with textured foliage were the stars – along with penoies and David Austin roses, craspedia, nerine and echevia. “We spent the two days prior making all the flowers on site,” smiles the bride.

Nicholas’ dad created the wedding entry sign and the bride made her rose gold glitter table numbers, mixing three colours together to achieve the perfect shade. There was also an Instagram frame for a DIY photobooth made with fresh flowers – a true floral explosion wedding!

“We had the most fun ever and the whole weekend was so magical it was the most perfect chilled out sunny weekend in Wales spent with loved ones and friends, great food, fabulous music, dancing and the perfect venue,” says the bride.
