Early Summer wedding at Priston Mill.

Priston Mill is only 7 miles from Bath and a stunning wedding venue, set in beautiful rural countryside, it is always a pleasure to decorate the Watermill and the Tythe Barn. This May wedding was held in the Tythe Barn, a spectacular stone barn, dating back to 1720 with oak rafters and a 15 metre high vaulted roof. Even as you walk up to the barn the pathways lined with English lavender put you in the mood for romance!

P1090651Both the Barn and the Watermill are licensed for wedding ceremonies. The barn looks beautiful all set for the ceremony and afterwards is magically transformed into a stunning reception venue.

P1090653Pew ends of Sweet Avalanche roses, astilbe, white phlox and green lisianthus, add perfect detail to the aisle. Which after the ceremony were placed in jam jars and dotted around the barn.

Steve and Nicola were a perfect Bride and Groom, a florist’s dream, Nicola had some idea of the flowers she wanted and with the help of Pinterest had created a board of things she liked and showed the rustic look they wanted to achieve. Then said they trusted us to make something lovely!

P1090700Beautiful blousey roses and peonies, rosemary and eucalyptus, with the sun shining the scent was amazing.

P1090690The barn all ready for the reception, the candelabra worked perfectly with the high vaulted ceiling. The flowers for the table centres following the soft summer colours of the Bridal flowers.

P1090719Candelabra with Sweet Avalanche roses, white phlox and astrantia, summery with the lovely fresh green of the lisianthus and trails of ivy. A truly beautiful venue, the stone walls setting off the flowers perfectly. Really enjoyed being involved in Steve and Nicola wedding and hope the flowers added to a very special day.
