Vibrant burst of colour and life hits a sleepy Yorkshire village.

What a beautiful day for a wedding! David & Rachel booked a quaint little church and hotel near Settle in the Yorkshire Dales for their wedding. I’m not sure the sleepy little village was ready for the burst of colour and life their wedding and guests brought. Rachel really want spring flowers for her wedding but spring was early this year and all the daffodils had finished. I managed to hold back some narcissus though which were incorporate into the bridesmaids’ ties. It was also the last of the ranunculus, but they were beautiful and helped with the seasonal transition. Luckily the British summer flowers had just started to be available, Cornish pinks in vivid magenta and plums, stocks, calendulas, red peonies and deep purple iris which unfortunately perished in the heat.

Thank you so much Sassy for capturing the moment I gave Rachel her bouquet. A friend of the bride had made her a silk headdress and it was my job to echo this with her bouquet. I even sneaked a skull in there, Rachel really like skulls!

The brief for the marquee was eclectic charity shop look, including herbs, to incorporate brightly painted table numbers that the bride had made. It was refreshing to be able to use lots of colour. Unfortunately the wild flowers such as cow parsley, meadow buttercups and red campion I had cut had perished in the heat and we couldn’t use them.

The wishing tree held the guest table numbers and looked great with the hand printed luggage tags the bride had provided.

An intimate affair, Mitton Hall, Clitheroe.

Twenty guest including the bride and groom. The bride only booked two weeks previous to the wedding and I had never been to Mitton Hall, nr. Clitheroe, Lancashire before. What a stunning venue! The wedding ceremony took place in the orangery and drinks were on the terrace.Image

The wedding reception was in an intimate room used for conferences with a big country house dinning table. We designed a seasonal table runner of flowers using memory lane roses, hydrangea, veronica, heather, alliums, sweet peas and plums off my tree at the bottom of my garden.  

ImageImageThe brides bouquet was a compact tie of seasonal flowers including memory lane roses, snow berry, heather, alliums, achilliea and veronica. She looked beautiful in a fitted lace dress with a grey sash.

Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of the brides maids flowers or the grooms boutonniere………busy florists!!
