The blogger, YouTuber and social media whiz tells all about her wedding flowers
Poppy Dinsey, founder of PoppyD.com, married Stephen Taylor at St Nicholas Church in Compton, Surrey, with a reception at The Aviator Hotel in Farnborough, Hampshire.
The florist: The Flower Boutique
"I was getting married in a traditional wedding dress in a 1,000-year-old church - with the reception taking place afterwards at a very modern hotel!
We needed flowers that would work well in both settings and I also wanted to give a subtle nod to the autumnal date of our wedding but without going too ‘orange’.
I didn’t know a huge amount about flowers but I did know I liked red roses. My florist, Leen, introduced me to a particular variety called ‘Naomi’ and they were just stunning. We tied the bouquets with a navy velvet ribbon in the same shade as the groomsmens’ suits.
We joked that as asparagus is one of Stephen’s favourite vegetables, it was nice to include asparagus fern in the arrangements!"
