Churches & Receptions


Paul and Francescas wedding involved hundreds of real and artificial flowers of numerous size, shape and colour. Our highly trained florists at Poplar Tree Florists provided each bridesmaid with a beautiful white rose petal bouquet with pink splashes. These flowers were specially imported from Holland.

The Brides Bouquet was a similar Rose petal structure but much larger and these flowers were also sourced fresh from Europe. We made the bride an artificial copy of the bouquet also so that she could keep at home after the wedding forever.

As well as providing flowers and bouquets for the brides Poplar tree Florist Durham also provided the groomsmen with their coursages and numerous family members also.

The day before the wedding, a team of expert Florists, led by the wedding planner from Poplar Tree, headed to the Church in Brancepeth Durham and constructed 3 archways which were wrapped in ivy and various roses and other flowers. These would provide a stunning walkway for the bridal party.

The church was also filled with several floral pedestals to match the colour scheme and Poplar Tree Florist put these in place on the morning of the wedding to ensure they were fresh and everything was in place.

The wedding was a split venue meaning that Poplar Tree Florist were also required to prepare 18 table centre pieces which consisted of huge martini glasses and black and white feathers. The martini glasses were filled with diamonds and placed on mirrors and surounded by our huge candles. Also each serviette had a rose petal and flower attached to it along with diamonds and table decorations. All were provided and put together by Poplar Tree Florists in the days leading up to the wedding.

To complete the fabulous array of flowers on display, Paul and Francesca also hired numerous artificial plants and trees to decorate their beautiful marquee aswell as our Wishing well and twig trees and lights..
