Pink in one shade or another is probably our most popular colour scheme, there's a good reason for this, we look really good with pink, our Northern European skin tones are well matched with pink, so it's always a great choice for us Brits, now the lovely Alison & Dean had chosen a pink palette for their colour scheme, they'd also chosen some truly beautiful European blooms too, Peonies, Roses, Sweet Peas and Hydrangeas, the perfect combination!!!
We met up with Alison and Dean to go through their jam packed mood board, we talked through their plans in great detail, we learned about Dean's love of Lego and Alison's love of Peonies, we discovered their plans for a remarkable day at the fabulous Ribby Hall Village, they'd booked some great wedding professionals including their photographer Lottie Designs there was a beautiful gown from The Bridal Collection in Lancaster, Make up by a good friend Sonara Parker mua, beautiful hair by Mairead from Wedlocks and a really unusual 'Lego' cake by Kelly Cakes
After the mood board appointment we all got together again for the samples appointment, we created a full set of sample bridal designs including Bridal Bouquet, Boutonniere and table centres to show the whole family...
Before we knew it the big day had arrived and our Jason presented our beautiful Bride and her very excited Bridesmaids with their bouquets
Jason showed everyone how to carry their bouquets perfectly
We loved Alison's beautiful Bouquet of Peonies, Lily of the Valley, English Garden Roses, Hydrangeas and Sweet Peas
Sonara and Mairead were busy with the hair and make up
In the Garden Room at Ribby Hall the scene was set with four beautiful pedestal designs framing the ceremony room magnifcently, lanterns surrounded by fresh fragrant Rose petals lined the aisle and a full and voluptuous design graced the Registrars tabke
The perfect space for a beautiful marriage ceremony
The candlelit Registrars table design featured fresh Roses, Peonies, Larkspur and Orchids
The fabulous pedestals and urns were filled with a glorious array of fresh Socks, Peonies, Hydrangeas, Roses and Dahlias

This was such a super stylish wedding day, Becci & Andy had put everything into this wonderful day, we had, had the best time planning and creating beautiful flowers for these two gorgeous folks. Their plans were thoroughly detailed, their ideas and colour themes were truly beautiful and on the day everything came together absolutely perfectly!!xx
The mood board Becci and Andy had put together was a real stunner, at their second appointment we discussed all of the details and they talked me through their fabulous board, we made plans to meet up a few weeks before their big day for us to showcase their sample bridal designs
We'd made a sample bridal bouquet of Peonies, Roses, Love in the Mist and Delphiniums for the lovely Becci to try out
We made a collection of table designs, boutonnieres, Chair Dressings & Pedestals, they were all designed with a fusion of glamour and rustic naturalness
At long last the big day arrived and I was very lucky to be presenting these gorgeous bouquets to Becci and her lovely Bridesmaids
This gorgeous wedding bouquet included Juliet Roses from David Austin, some fragrant Lily of the Valley, Freesia, Sweet Peas, Peonies, Love in the Mist Delphiniums and Thalaspi
I showed all of the Bridal party how to carry their bouquets perfectly
Becky & Hannah were looking after the hair and make up, making these beautiful ladies even more beautiful Vanity House
The Bride's Mum's beautiful Corsage of Rolled Rose Petals and Dendrobium Orchids

Two huge and glorious pedestals topped with Cafe au Lait Dahlias, Blush & White Hydrangeas, Roses, Peonies, Stocks, Delphiniums and fresh foliages framed the ceremony space
Posies of fresh fragrant flowers dressed each alternate pew end lining the aisle, we'd chosen to use fresh flowers instead of the candlelit lanterns featured on Becci & Andy's mood board, once we'd seen Becci's gown and she'd said that she'd be walked down the aisle by two Dads Geoff & Tom we figured out that there just wouldn't be enough space on the floor for lanterns.
Two of our magnificent trees filled the space to the left of the Registrars table

We all love The Inn at Whitewell, it really is one of our all time favourite places, we all love it in our off time too, Jason & I have celebrated our anniversaries there staying in their beautiful rooms (with no signal yeah!!) and eating spectacular locally sourced dinners, our team too have a special affinity with it, we've all got beautiful memories, personal anecdotes, childhood remembrances and all of us can in our minds flick back to someone's happy wedding day. A funny thing this, but every year without fail for at least the last 20 years, when we get to the end of the wedding season and are reminiscing over the year, an Inn at Whitewell wedding always comes out as being one of our favourite weddings of that particular year, there really is a good reason for it, it's real, it's authentic, jam packed with character and characters, it's eclectic, it's posh yet it's relaxed and homely, most of all it's welcoming and we feel like we're valued both as customers and suppliers...
Last weekend we had the happy task of creating flowers for the Inn at Whitewell's showcase
So we got together with Emma & Andrea at The Inn a few weeks ago and thrashed out some ideas (over the best sausage and mash ever), we got together with team Flower Design and thrashed out a few more ideas (over a bottle of red), all of our ideas were unique, unique to the individual who came up with it and unique to Whitewell, after all it's a pretty unique place...
Outside on the terrace the braziers were stoked up
The river was full to bursting
Whatever the time of year I truly believe this is one of the best views from any wedding venue in the world!!xx
Inside the marquee a warm cosy and tranquil atmosphere prevailed and our designs looked magical, we'd created our own Mood Boards for this event and instead of thinking about a Bride & Groom and all of their purchases and taste to take into account, we treated The Inn as if it were the client, we came up with a number of 'Story Boards' each one celebrating a different aspect of The Inn at Whitewell, we created wedding bouquets, boutonnieres and at least two table designs to compliment each story.
We adored the chandeliers provided by our great friends Megan & Daz from Typical Type they really enhanced our ideas and provided a finish and completeness to the marquee.
Our first story'Woodland Nymphs & Flower Fairies' inspired by 'A Midsummer Nights Dream'
Our enchanted tree table was inspired by 'childhood memories' of family picnics in the woods around Whitewell, stories of 'Flower Fairies', mystical, whimsical, using tiny magical flowers and mysterious materials, mosses, books, 'fire flies' and fairy lights...
This table design was so detailed, so provocative, imaginative, we'd used a collection of January blooms: Californian Poppies, Oncidium 'Bumblebee' Orchids, Craspedia, Acacia, Cherry Blossom, Hypericum, Eustoma and Rose buds in a variety of shades.
Books, wrapped in moss, Ranunculus, Jasmine, Astrantia, Limonium, Grevillia and glass perfume bottles filled with perfumed flowers
We stopped short of some fairy foot prints but they were discussed!!! xx
Fresh Ivy, hidden succulents, Albiflora, pea green Hypericum and candlelit votives
A magical moss covered candelabra formed part of this table we'd dressed it with Angiozanthos, Tulips, Forsythia, Poppies, Grevillia, Jasmine and Mimosa
We leave space between each placement on our table designs, my old floristry tutor always said "leave space for the butterflies" and on this table design that seems hugely relevant.
Our wild and whimsical wedding bouquet included a whole host of fresh magical flowers and was tied up with a trails of colourful ribbons.
The Boutonniere designed to compliment the wedding bouquet included tiny mystical blooms, berries and materials
We'd also arranged this set of lower designs along the oval top table, the two higher designs would be too tall for a real top table and would probably be used on round tables in a real wedding scenario.I loved this design so much, the promise of magic is more than a suggestion, I could look at it for hours
Details are so important, small motifs that sometimes repeat, bulbs and new beginnings are celebrated in this collection.
More 'weird' and 'wonderful' flower shapes the Scabious seed head and Astrantia so mystical.
An old lantern left in the woods, fresh flowers growing through where they'd pushed the glass out.
More Books, Birds Nests, Mossy mounds.
Another favourite of mine this ancient old Bird Bath filled with Hamamelis aka Witch Hazel, Blossoms, Rose Buds, Craspedia aka 'Billy Balls', Oncidium aka 'Bumblebee' Orchids and so many more morsels of floral loveliness besides.
Our second story 'Dutch Masters & Still Life at Whitewell'
Our next table design collection was in celebration of the art work around Whitewell, particularly in their 'Orangery'& 'Restaurant' we felt it celebrated the history here, we'd used a ridiculously heavy wrought iron urn and filled it with a arelaxed design featuring some heavenly wintery materials: fresh Anemones, Wax Flower Blossom, Astrantia, Hydrangeas, Hellebore, Viburnum Tinus and flowering Eucalyptus. We'd arranged some old Ginger jars, Candlesticks, Pomegranate, grapes, Pears, recycled bottles, goblets and jugs.
A recreation of a Dutch Masters Oil painting was our brief, I love this design so much! our Shirl had sourced us some fabulous fabrics for this set of designs.
Our heavy 'Verdi Gris' wrought iron candelabra was the design we'd created to provide a tall option to go with the Dutch Master inspired urn.
We loved the wax running down the candles it seemed 'just right' for this candelabra dressed with Roses, Orchids, Hyacinth, Kochia & Hellebores.
We'd set this design on a large silver tray swathed in a piece of velvet dressed with fruit, books, mini candelabras and silver tarnished goblets.
Our third Story 'Country Pursuits at Whitewell'
A collection of designs inspired by 'Country Pursuits' synonymous with Whitewell, our Shirl had found us some superb tweeds to use with these designs and Jason had been over to 'Port of Lancaster Smoke House'for the pheasant feathers, Sam from 'Triggr' a provider Clay Pigeon shooting days and experiences had given us the empty cartridges.
We wanted these designs to look 'outdoorsy' using natural earthy materials, we'd chosen a mustard and bark brown palette for this collection and as we were driving over to Whitewell all of these shades seemed so prolific in the landscape.
Fresh bulbs and foliages were growing out of the cartridges
We'd used the cartridge shells to make mini flower vessels
The wedding bouquet created to match the themes of 'Country Pursuits' included 'Oberon' Freesia, Lotus Seed Head, 'Golden Mustard' Roses, Succulents, Grevillea, Cymbidium Orchids and Spring bulbs complete with their roots and some Pheasant feathers, the handle was bound with tweed.
Our 'Country Pursuits' Boutonniere
The lower design created to compliment the 'Country Pursuits' theme used a collection of wooden vessels and stands and included Forsythia and Succulents with daffodil bulbs.
Succulents on tree stumps.
Our fourth Collection 'Country House Banquet & Ball'
A little more glamour in these designs, inspired by the banquets and balls, wedding parties and celebrations we see all of the time at 'The Inn at Whitewell'
Our beautiful 'Baroque Candelabra' dressed with fresh Roses, Hydrangeas, Dianthus & Calla Lilies set on a slice of tree a nod to the great outdoors.
The candelabras were surrounded by posies of fresh flowers and mirrored tea light votives
One of our super tall FD Flower Bombs a brilliant design to choose if you're having a Church wedding the fresh flowers can be used on top of our pedestal and urn combinations to create a fabulous Church Pedestal and then after it becomes a superb table centrepiece.
Inside the vase a stem of green Cymbidium Orchid creates interest low down
Our fifth Story 'The Great Outdoors'
This set of designs is an ever changing collection inspired by the seasons, we love the silhouette the magnificent Magnolia Branches create, it's so obviously a winter design, we used a collection of fresh bulbs set into the moss and creeping between the branches, trails of fresh ivy tumbling over the sides, imagine how different this design would be in he middle of Summer or in the Autumn, here at Whitewell the season is so obvious, the outdoors is every where you look, it seems very right to celebrate it.
As with all of our designs there's a huge amount of fresh detail
We'd brought along a few fabulous Inn at Whitewell Mood Boards and had the pleasure of explaining to future Brides and Grooms how to put their own mood board together...
Lots of Bride's and Groom's tried out our Bouquets and Boutonnieres
Exquisite details our oil painting inspired boutonnieres
The beautiful magical and enchanted bouquet designed with a whimsical bride in mind.
Trails of multicoloured ribbons
These last few images are close ups of the designs around the marquee and really celebrate the flowers
Love this gorgeous voluptuous bridal bouquet
Our work here was done many thanks to Emma & Andrea and all of the team at The Inn at Whitewell, we had a wonderful weekend and had the pleasure of meeting with some really fabulous Brides & Grooms.
What a spectacularly cool wedding Ashleigh & Josh had over at Singleton Lodge Hotel, we have had some fab appointments with the beautiful Ashleigh and her gorgeous Mum Kerry. Ashleigh had chosen some stunning and oh so simple Bridesmaids gowns, she preferred relaxed and natural bouquets with copious amounts of fresh fragrant Eucalyptus, in short her taste is exquisite.
Ashleigh had booked a stellar team of wedding pros including the fabulous wedding photography Kelly Clarke , a stunning gown by Ritva Westinius from Brides of York, Hair by Clare Ashton, make up by Gemma from The Nail Bar & Beauty Salon, the fabulous James Edgar entertained everyone and Kelly Dee from Pink Frosting made a delicious cake
We made a beautiful set of sample designs for Ashleigh & Kerry to see, including a bridal bouquet...
A sample boutonniere
The sample for the top table was created in a relaxed style our intension was for it to stretch the entire length of the table.
We also made a couple of table design suggestions
At last the big day arrived and I presented the bridal bouquets to Ashleigh and her bridesmaids
The bouquets included fresh Jasmine, Roses in muted shades of Silver greys, nude and blush with Veronica, Fresh Peppermint, Sweet Peas, Rosemary, Chasmanthium Latifolia, fresh Olive, fragrant Dill, Oregano and Thalaspi

Sample table design of Jam jars on stacked seed trays

I showed everyone how to cary their bouquets perfectly
