Steph and Alex at Inn on the Lake – Protea Bouquets and a Silver Marble Cake
We first met Steph and her mum at the St James Park wedding fair and as we started to chat I knew this was going to be a beautiful wedding! Steph wanted to include Protea in her flowers to pay homage to her South African roots and we were very exited to plan and create the bouquets for her special day. It was also a pleasure to travel into Cumbria for this wedding, taking place at Inn on the Lake in Ullswater – a venue famous for its lakeside location and amazing photo ops from their private pier.
Sadly the weather took a very wet turn for the day of the wedding, but as you can see from these images by Helena Charlotte Photography, it certainly didn’t dampen the couple’s spirits or get in the way of those all important lakeside shots!
For the buttonholes we sourced the most lovely ‘blushing bride’ protea – they’re a new favourite!
For the wedding we designed the bouquets and buttonholes plus flowers for the ceremony and reception to go alongside the venue’s own candelabra. We also provided some flowers for the gorgeous dessert table created by the bride’s sister! Sonia runs Chalming Cake Designs and did a fantastic job of designing, creating and transporting the cakes and desserts for the day – we were amazed by the beautiful details and delicate silver leaf.
The venue’s candelabra were dressed with jars of flowers underneath and the top table was adorned with a full flower wreath on top of the silver candelabra.
A bit of drizzle didn’t stop these lovebirds!
