Yellow is the most luminous of all the colours in the spectrum and it really grabs our attention. The Cambridge Dictionary defines yellow as 'a colour like that of a lemon or gold or the sun'. Exactly! It lifts our hearts and makes us happy. What better colour could there be for a summer wedding in Ecclesall Woods. I mixed in some blue for the venue flowers. Sarah's (the bride) Dad made her a cute little crate which I filled with flowers:
The yellow flowers are sunflowers and gerberas. The blue flowers are cornflowers, sea holly, veronica, brodiaea and ageratum. 
I used kilner jars for the registrar's table:
Then I dotted a few jam jars around and about.
The wedding photographer was Ben West and I am delighted that he has given me permission to use some of his photographs to show the flowers with the wedding party. You can find more about him and his work on his website Sarah chose to have her bouquet made with sunflowers, gerberas, gypsophila and just a little foliage. Here she is arriving with her proud Dad:
And with her beautiful bouquet:
The bridesmaids' posies were classy and simple, just with gerberas. They contrasted very well with their navy dresses.
The men had buttonholes made with gypsophila. The ladies had buttonholes based around a single gerbera. They looked great and complemented the wearers' smiles magnificently.
Here are Sarah and Chris looking bright, sunny and happy. Everything that yellow symbolises.
I think just a bit of yellow as a pop of colour works really well. Here are the bouquets that Sarah asked me to make as gifts to say thank you to people who made a big contribution to her wedding day. What a lovely idea.
