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... Read the Rest →

 

Blush Blooms for an Idyllic Alnwick Garden Wedding in Northumberland

This is hands down one of our favourite weddings of the year! The lovely Bridie and Dan married in a traditional church ceremony near home and then traveled to one of our top venues; the amazing Alnwick Garden for their wedding reception. Bridie had the most sophisticated yet relaxed taste and chose stunning peonies and nude roses and stocks for her and her bridesmaids’ bouquets, the buttonholes and candelabra table centres – all captured here in style by our friend Helen Russell Photography. The couple complemented the flowers perfectly with... Read the Rest →

 

Summer Sparkle – Jodi and Jamie’s Sequin Gatsby Styled Wedding at The Vermont Hotel

If you love a bit of glamour when it comes to venue styling you will love this real wedding from last summer at The Vermont Hotel in Newcastle. Jodi wanted a Gastby theme to match the Art Deco venue, but gave it a twist with lashings of stunning sequins. The Vermont Hotel ballroom ceremony was dressed with ivory chiffon chair drapes with pearl brooches, lanterns down the aisle and the bride’s own rose petals. We then added a silver sequin cloth to the ceremony table and two plinths featuring candelabra... Read the Rest →

 

A Summer Sage Green and Lace Wedding at Ramside Hall

We loved working with Andy and Donna on their Ramside Hall wedding. They had a summer palette of sage green and dusky pink and chose our lace chair sashes and sage green on our linen chair covers to match the bridesmaid’s dresses. Candelabras with fresh flowers were set on half of the tables in the ballroom, with the other half dressed with hurricane vases and silver mercury vases. We also added the starlight backdrop on the sage and matching table skirts for the top table. It was fantastic to work... Read the Rest →

Our friends at Boutique Floral created the bouquets for Nicola and the bridal party. Tables were adorned with silver sequin table cloths and... Read the Rest →

Sage Green, Roses and Lace – Samantha and Andrew’s Wedding at Linden Hall

It had been just over a year since my own wedding at Linden Hall when we returned to dress the beautiful wedding of Samantha and Andrew and I enjoyed every minute of planning and dressing the day.

When Sam mentioned that the lovely Nigel Playle... Read the Rest →
