Sammy wanted her bouquet to look romantic, effortless, unstructured, 'shabby chic', to match the theme for the wedding.
She wanted to keep the colours soft and elegant - the creams and ivories were to match the soft ivory of her dress while the peaches and apricots were to match the bridesmaids dresses. The colours were special not just because they were some of her favourites, but also they suited the bridesmaids beautifully. The pearls in the middle of the roses adding a touch of elegance.
The greenery and berries added to the effortless, gathered effect she was looking for.
