- 08/07/17--15:13: Trudy & Ryan's Vibrant Wedding Day at Spectacular Colshaw Hall
This was always going to be a very special wedding, we have loved our meetings with the gorgeous Rebecca and her equally gorgeous Mum Caroline, we've had vapours over Rebecca's stunning gown by my favourite designer Suzanne Neville from the great folks at Dreamcatcher Bridal, we adored their mood board and couldn't wait to see the 'Tandem Seating Plan' and lots of other exquisite details our Bride & Groom had planned for their guests.
They had a great wedding team on board too including Emma, Andrea and the fantastic team at The Inn at Whitewell, the super brilliant Roland & Lisa from RT Productions & Wedding Films, the phenomenal Howard Wing, the delicious cake was by Cakes by Vanilla in Clitheroe, the guys fabulous suits were by Whitfield & Ward, cars by Broughton Wedding Cars, Lottie Designs Ltd was taking photographs, the Bridesmaid's gowns were from Orchid Designs, Hair by Red Hair Co in Tarleton, Make Up Artistry by Elle and their lovely stationery was by Jill from Just for you Invitations
Following the Mood Board Appointment we arranged to meet up again to present a set of sample designs for them to see, we made Rebecca a gorgeous Bridal Bouquet of white Peonies, David Austin's Patience Roses, Lily of the Valley, Sweet Peas and copious amounts of fragrant Eucalyptus
We made a matching boutonniere for Tom featuring a gorgeous collection of Lily of the Valley, Roses, Rolled Petals & Hydrangeas
we also created a set of sample table designs too
Before we knew it the week of their wedding was upon us, on the Wednesday we took delivery of some gorgeous white blooms, Phlox, Roses, Peonies & Hydrangeas
By Saturday morning the flowers were all at their peak of beautifulness as were our gorgeous Bride and her lovely Bridesmaids, Jason showed everyone how to carry their bouquets perfectly
Jason then headed off to the family Church of All Saint's in Hesketh Bank where they have the most wonderful Minister the ceremony was superb
Inside this historic Church we'd arranged two pedestals on either side of the ceremony space a glorious array of Delphiniums, Stocks, Hydrangeas, Peonies, Dahlias and Roses in white and green shades topped the pedestals majestically
Posies of fresh fragrant Stocks, Oxypetalum, Roses, Peonies and Hydrangeas dressed each alternate Pew end lining the aisle
Outside the Church door the Bride's Dad had parked his tandem bike, we'd dressed the front and back with glorious fresh flowers
Rebecca's super handsome Bride Groom Tom was first to have his rather special boutonniere pinned to his lapelWe'd bound the stem of the Groom's boutonniere with navy blue ribbon to match his jacket perfectly
We'd made simpler versions of the Groom's boutonniere for his Groom's Men, Jason pinned on all of the boutonnieres ensuring each one was positioned perfectly

The Groom's Mum's corsage complimented her pale green and blue ensemble beautifully
The beautiful Bridesmaids were wearing pale blush pink dresses their bouquets in all white contrasted perfectly

Our work here was done it was time to leave the party in full swing many thanks to Rebecca & Tom and both of their fabulous families for choosing Flower Design to be a small part of such a wonderful and magical day, we loved every second of it from the planning meetings right through to the clearing down xxxxx
We had such a wonderful first meeting with the very lovely Sheila way back last year, it turned out that Sheila & Nicholas shared our love of Italy and we discussed at length the places they'd visited, the food and wine they enjoy and of course the flowers and Herbs they loved, many of them Mediterranean and of course some English country garden blooms too, we hit on a plan of fusing these ideas creating a quintessentially English wedding with a bit of an Italian twist, the ceremony was to be held over at The White Church in Fairhaven and their celebrations at The Grand Hotel in St Annes
We met again with Sheila & Nicholas this time for their Mood Board meeting, we learned more and managed to get a clear picture of the styling they liked, a relaxed vibe prevailed with lots of fresh Italian Herbs and trailing foliages, we were looking forward to their samples appointment...
Sheila loved her sample wedding bouquet, this was prepared a little too early in the season for some of the ingredients we wanted to use like the heavenly fresh Stephanotis that matched the flowers embossed on Sheila's wedding gown fabric
Nicholas loved his Boutonniere too we'd designed it to match his Bride's bouquet, it featured a stunning Darcey Rose from David Austin
We decided on large pedestal designs for in Church to frame the ceremony space beautifully
Pew End posies with trailing Amaranthus would look perfect at The White Church
We created two magnificent pedestals featuring a glorious array of Delphiniums, Peonies, Hydrangeas, Stocks, Phlox, Jasmine, Bouvardia, Astilbe, Amaranthus, Peppermint, Rosemary, Scabious, fresh Olive, Grasses and Hostas
Glorious Hot Pink Peonies
Fresh Scabious 'Scoop' and white Bouvardias

Our fabulous Bride the lovely Sheila was a little over come with happy emotion as I handed over her fragrant bridal bouquet
I showed Sheila and her lovely Bridesmaid Alice how to carry their bouquets perfectly
The Bridesmaid's Bouquet was created using the same flowers as the Bride's Bouquet but in a less cascading style
The Wedding Bouquet was a beautifully relaxed design featuring heavenly trails of tumbling and cascading Jasmine, fresh sweet scented Stephanotis, Carmine Sweet Peas, hot pink Peonies, David Austin's gloriously vibrant English Garden Rose Darcey, delicately lacey Lily of the Valley, fragrant Rosemary, Dill, Oregano, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Asparagus tips, Olive foliage and Bouvardia the entire confection was framed by lovely fronzes of Umbrella Fern
Our good buddy Sonara Parker was busy making Sheila look even more lovely as we left heading off to The White Church ...
I absolutely love the White Church and we absolutely love the Vicar David too, he really does a brilliant and super personal service every time
Inside this magnificent Church the scene was set for a very special wedding service
The two magnificent pedestals were placed on either side of the ceremony space framing the action and creating an ideal backdrop for the service
Pew End Posies of fresh Peonies, fresh Olive, Rosemary, Oregano and Dill, Sweet Peas, Phlox, Jasmine and trailing Amaranthus hung from each alternate Pew End lining the aisle

I lined up the Boutonnieres ready to pin them to Sheila's Bride Groom Nicholas and his Groom's Men

What a spectacular wedding day Rebecca & Damian had at Eaves Hall, we had enjoyed a long distance relationship with Damian & Rebecca they both live in Dubai so we planned and discussed using all the technology at hand and finally met up face to face two weeks before their big day to present a set of sample designs, I had everything crossed that they'd love our designs and that I'd interpreted their instructions correctly, what a relief it was when they arrived at FD HQ and loved everything ...
Rebecca had created a really brilliant PDF style mood board, they'd both provided some really detailed information too, to support the images which we always need in order to create thoroughly good designs, one of Rebecca's requests was a Bridal Arch for her guests to walk through as the entered the ceremony, so we 'mocked up' an example of our bridal arch created to fit their budget, our FD studio isn't the finest backdrop but at least they could get the idea.
We also made a super tall table design featuring fresh Peonies, Hydrangeas and bags of glorious foliages
An example of a low table design utilising the Bridal bouquet to make the most of the beautiful blooms
A sample Boutonniere designed for Damian

This was such a heavenly wedding, flowers created for a heavenly family I have absolutely loved every meeting we've had with Kayleigh & Ben and little Arabella, I loved their Mood Board and their choices of mixed soft pastel shades, wild hedgerow style flowers and grasses and the relaxed styling there's an innocence and gentleness to all of those decisions that seemed the perfect choice for them, complimenting them as a family.

Layla & Wayne had created a beautifully colourful mood board and we experimented with different combinations of colours and flowers
For their samples appointment a spectacular giant Balloon was delivered to us in the midst of wedding flower chaos, it was to become part of their collection of samples. Minutes before Layla & Wayne were due to arrive, it became detatched and soared to the super high ceiling of our studio a frantic few minutes ensued and our fabulous neighbours from Reax tried and then the team from Rainbow Blinds eventually managed to retrieve it just in the nick of time, precious minutes had been lost but thankfully our Bride & Groom were understanding and patient... You know what they say ...'Never work with latex and ladders!!!!'
Their sample designs included a beautiful collection of glorious Spring blooms which weren't quite the same as the ones we'd be using at the end of June, a little imagination was required and these two had a great vision...
