- 06/08/17--14:48: Amy & Matthew's Deep Purple & Hot Pink Wedding Day at Ribby Hall

Inspired by Vicky & Kevin's mood board we invited them back in to the FD studio to see a set of sample bridal designs created just for them. I really loved the wedding bouquet sample we made for the lovely Vicky we'd included fresh Earl Grey Roses, white Peonies, Silver Lace Floribunda Roses, Astilbe, Forget Me Nots, Veronica, Albiflora, Olive and Eryngium with a fabulous collection of Eucalyptus varieties, Acacia and Peppermint.
The handle of the bouquet was given a unique 'lovers knot' treatment with lots of trailing ribbons in a various widths and shades

This was such a fun wedding and we had a brilliant time working with the fabulous Amy & Matthew, planning for their wonderful Ribby Hall wedding, I aways think it's such a happy place, a village where memories are made and magical moments are shared, we're there almost every day for one thing or another and as soon as we drive through the gates we have a smiles on our faces!!! ( I always thought the security men on the gates recognised me with a super friendly wave but it turns out they do that to everyone, either way it's a lovely welcome!!)
Amy & Matthew had booked a whole crowd of superb suppliers that we were delighted to be working with, there was the super talented Nick English Photography, a gorgeous Mark Lesley gown from Emma Louise Bridal, Lady Gray Make Up Artist, Sam Gateley was doing the hair, gorgeous Two Birds Bridesmaid gowns, Stationery by Charlotte Designs and chair covers by Sophisticated Events.
Our fabulous bridal couple had put together this splendid mood board sharing with us their plans for a very personal wedding day.

Be warned this is a huge posting, it's going to take a few minutes to scroll through a plethora of our snaps featuring some seriously spectacular and glorious flowers, some equally spectacularly beautiful people and some of the most spectacular venues on the Fylde, brace yourselves...
Firstly though let me share some of the back story with you, we first met up with Beth and her fabulous Mum Catherine a year or so ago, we all hit it off immediately and I distinctly remember laughing all the way through that first meeting, we've had many meetings since, some were just Beth & I some were just Catherine & I and some with our Jason too, with mood boards to discuss, sample bridal designs to see and just to go over some of the details, there really was a lot going on for this Wedding, inevitably after all of our chats we had a thorough understanding of their taste, their relaxed almost boho style, their love of flowers and the importance of family & friends.
We were looking forward to working alongside a stellar team of superb wedding professionals, all hand picked by Beth & Laurence, a team they knew would deliver the perfect day; Oscar Rowley & the team from Campbell & Rowley were looking after the catering and liaising with their spectacular and novel venue AKS where our couple first met, we had the huge pleasure of working with the lovely & brilliant Martin from Cahill Photography, the fabulous Samantha Mercer & The Dollz Team who we knew would do the most wonderful job of the hair and make up, there was a gorgeous gown from the great folks Elizabeth & Camilla from Mears Ghyll Bridal Rooms and entertainment from the truly awesome The Dead Beats Party Band
At long last the big day arrived Lily & I were at the Bride's family home bright and early to present our bridal bouquets, we showed everyone how to carry their bouquets perfectly in our FD Events Bouquet tutorial we also introduce the Bride and her Bridesmaid's to the flowers in their bouquets explaining their particular significance and preciousness!

Each alternate Pew end lining the aisle was dressed with a posy of fresh Peonies, Roses, Hydrangeas, Astilbe, Love in the Mist and Daisies each posy was quite unique

These two are just so super cool and had great ideas for their sea side themed wedding day, we loved their mood board it was a belter to work on, it included so much detail, loads of fresh ideas for a fabulous sun bleached sea side wedding day.
I feel at this point it's also important to note they had the best sound track including some of our all time favourites, not least Guardian's of the Galaxy sound track they came out of the ceremony to Blue Swede's Hooked on a Feeling (I don't mind admitting it alway's puts a smile on my face) some exceptional tracks from The Jam and loads more great tunes too.
We made them, as we always do a collection of designs created exclusively for Alex & Steven to suit their themes based on their beautifully put together mood board and their budget of course. We'd talked about a wild flower palette at our Mood board meeting so we'd put together a bouquet with Grasses, Daisies, Sea Thistles, Bumblebee Orchids, Love in the Mist and fragrant herbs, hidden amongst the fresh flowers we'd also decided to include some sea shells, only small ones but they added a beach feel and the kind of detail our FD team really love.
We included loads of gorgeous blooms with a relaxed 'Sand dunes' gathered vibe, the handle was bound with jute sacking and then tied up with blue gingham, the stem's were left exposed and some tiny seed pearls studded the handle.
We created a matching boutonniere for our Bride Groom Steven and included some well placed sea shells within his boutonniere, the stem was given the same treatment as the bridal bouquet handle to create a coordinated but not overtly 'matchy matchy' look
Lanterns and petals to line the aisle were shown at this appointment
A low table design suggestion created to utilise the Bridal bouquets, the vase was dressed with a Star fish and hessian

This was such a gorgeous wedding day filled with friends, family and copious amounts of love for this beautiful couple. We had a great time with the planning and though I missed their mood board appointment which Jason did, we managed to catch up remarkably well at our next appointment, their mood board was stupendous with bags of useful details and we couldn't wait to get started creating some gorgeous flowers for them.
We were lucky enough to be working with some great wedding professionals including a gorgeous Modeca gown from the great folks at Lulu Browns, make up by the super lovely Sonara Parker MUA, great hair by M Hair Studio in Thornton, a superb wedding venue The Great Hall at Mains and the brilliant folks from Twelve Event Management providing the delicious catering, Typical Type had provided all of the atmospheric outdoor lighting at TGHM also a mention for the lovely cake maker Nickie Thackwray who did a really splendid job.
So following a couple of meetings to discuss their mood board we got together again in our FD studio to present a set of sample designs
