Wedding flowers at Osmaston Park

Natalie and Jonathan

We adored working with Natalie and her Mum to design her dream wedding flowers for her marriage to Jonathan last Summer at church followed by marquee reception at Osmaston Park.

Natalie wanted to create a glamorous and opulent effect with her wedding flowers, to include hydrangeas, peonys and roses in abundance.

It was an easy decision for us to make choosing Kerry to do our flowers. From when I saw Tineke at Swancar farm I wanted them for our wedding. I thought their floral arrangements were just amazing, plus they have a brilliant reputation. My vision for our wedding was flowers, flowers, flowers- and I knew that I would get the best of the best from Tineke.

After coming across Tineke at Swancar Farm, I began following them on social media- this just further confirmed that I wanted Tineke to provide the flowers for our special day. Once we had set the date and booked the venue I contacted Kerry immediately to meet up with her in the hope we could secure Tineke for our date.

Kerry was amazing! From our initial meeting at the mill, I knew she understood my vision and through the whole process, Kerry couldn’t have been more helpful, always going out of her way to make things possible. I had seen an image of a cake table which was made up of flowers underneath a piece of Perspex, the cake then stood on top. I showed Kerry the image and said I’d love something like it and she was more than happy to try and make that happen for us. Unfortunately due to the weight of the cake this was not possible but Kerry was able to provide a much better and more suitable alternative in our wonderful ring of flowers. Also, I had mentioned that ideally I would love peonies in my bridal bouquet and Kerry explained that in August they are just out of season, again suggesting similar alternatives that would work just as well. However, Kerry worked her magic and when the bouquets were delivered on the wedding day I had beautiful peonies!! A wonderful surprise on the morning of our wedding. I couldn’t have wished for a better team or experience.

There isn’t a thing I would change about our wedding flowers. They were absolutely PERFECT!! So many guests commented on how stunning the arrangements were. They were exactly as I imagined and the marquee looked beyond amazing. I love looking back at the images of our wedding and each time I scroll past a floral arrangement my comment is always “oh I loved my flowers”. I’ve told so many people they were my favourite thing about the day- the flowers and marrying my husband of course! I am so happy that we chose Kerry and Tineke- it was an obvious choice really- the flowers were everything we could have wished for and the team were so helpful and accommodating. My Dad commented that our flowers were worth “every single penny”.
I cannot thank you all enough, Kerry and team, for making my vision become reality!

Francesca and Jonathan

We were so honoured to create the beautiful wedding flowers in Derbyshire for Fran and Jonathan last Spring time.

Fran really wanted Lily of the Valley for sentimental reasons, which worked stunning with her Peonys against her gorgeous bridal gown.

We asked Fran for feedback following her experience with Tineke, and this is what she said - made our day!

Flowers were probably one of if not the most important thing to me as a bride. I had a very clear image of what I wanted but also the meaning behind some of the flowers - such as having lily of the valley a favourite of my grandma who had passed away.

How did you come across Tineke?  Through (friendly) stalking of Instagram and Facebook. Looking at both friends of friends weddings, Derbyshire weddings etc.  I kept seeing what turned out to be Tineke flowers and kept messaging people or following the tags to find out who had done the wedding flowers. As each time no matter what colour or time of year they were stunning.

Why did you book Tineke? Honestly - it was on first impression - from the first email message to meeting Kerry and team in her studio, seeing wedding flowers in production that very day and just getting a really good feeling from the ideas Kerry had. That initial meeting was very important as Kerry listened, proposed ideas, wrote everything down and really made me feel comfortable. I had met another florist previously and her meeting room was full of fake flowers which really put me off!

How important were flowers for your wedding day? Flowers were probably one of if not the most important thing to me as a bride. I had a very clear image of what I wanted but also the meaning behind some of the flowers - such as having lily of the valley a favourite of my grandma who had passed away.

How did you find your experience with Tineke? Excellent - so much so I recommended to my best friend Vikki who also used for her wedding.

Is there anything that you would change? I would have taken/got the photographers to take lots more photos of the flowers. I wish I had also preserved my wedding bouquet or asked how to do it!

Claire and Adam

Really excited to see the wedding photographs today of a beautiful wedding at the West Mills wedding venue in Derbyshire, that we were privileged to be a part of back in May.

The Bride and Groom chose us as their wedding florist for their Derbyshire wedding, and we are so pleased that they did! Gorgeous blush pink Roses, dreamy Peonies and stocks featured heavily throughout the day, along with lots of trendy Pantone2017 inspired foliage.

We also loved creating their ceremony backdrop, for their industrial styled wedding, which was a perfect frame for the ceremony. The West Mills staff are absolutely brilliant, as they then moved it to the reception as a top table backdrop.

Here are some of the images kindly supplied by Gareth Newstead.

Wedding flowers at Osmaston Park

We were delighted to provide the wedding flowers at Osmaston Park marquee reception, near Ashbourne, Derbyshire for the summer wedding of Sarah and Tom.

When we first met with Sarah and Tom, to discuss her Wedding flowers at Osmaston Park, we fell in love with her ideas straight away, Sarah was very interested in flowers and had a lot of knowledge which was fantastic, as she knew exactly what she wanted to create. Sarah wanted her bouquet to look as though it had just been picked from the garden, and we think it suited her wedding dress, Grooms suit and wedding perfectly.

We discussed the use of greens, creams and hints of smoky purple  flowers. The flowers used included Thlaspi, “clea june” lilac Veronicas, white scented stocks, pale pink/white/pink Astrantia, poppy heads, alchemillia, cow parsley (ammi), rosemary, white love in mist (nigella), white and lilac scabious, cinerea eucalyptus,and herbs finished with twine and brides lace from her wedding dress.

At the venue, we filled the brides various designed jugs with flowers to compliment the bridal flowers, we loved the use of branches to hold the tables numbers!

We also filled milk churns for the entrance to the marquee, which works very well for this lovely, rural setting.

Thank you to Matt at Matt Brown Photography, who's images we absolutely love here at Tineke!
