We absolutely loved working on this 'Bordeaux' plum golden wedding at one of our all time favourite venues the fabulous Bartle Hall Hotel.
Joanne & Stuart had some spectacular plans for their big day, their beautiful mood board really inspired our designs, both of them had a clear vision for their family wedding, bags of romance, tons of rich warm colour, a plethora of fresh flowers and an abundance of candlelight.
We got together with Joanne & Stuart just a few weeks before their wedding to present a collection of sample bridal designs to them, we'd made Joanne a beautiful Wedding Bouquet, we'd blended the colours to ensure a perfect match the the Bridesmaids fabric Dessy's 'Bordeaux Plum'
We included lots of wintery textures and materials, Velvety Blueberry, Mentha & Black Baccara Roses, Silky Plum Calla Lilies, Glossy Berries and Leaves, Fluffy Astilbe, Prickly Eryngium Thistles and felt like Classic Hydrangeas with Evergreen foliages and fresh fragrant herbs including fresh Rosemary the herb of Remembrance
We decided on a combination of high and low table designs all in golden vessels, we love this gorgeous golden pineapple vase filled with fresh flowers to compliment the bridal bouquets
Our Golden Byzantine Candelabras provided the taller design ensuring rhythm and the flickering candlelight would add movement around the room
On the big day, Chloe and I were at Bartle Hall in one of their magnificent suites presenting the Bridal Party with their box of floral treasures
We always love the big reveal, peeling back the tissue and revealing their beautiful bridal bouquets is always a joyous moment.
Like a Jewel box of floral Rubies, Garnets, Sapphires and Black Pearls, these gorgeous wedding bouquets not only looked wonderful but their fragrance was heavenly
I handed the beautiful Joanne her gorgeous bouquet
We showed everyone how to carry their bouquets perfectly and we introduced them to the flowers we'd used.
We'd attached a beautiful brooch to the handle of the Joanne's wedding bouquet so she could carry her lovely mum close to her as she walked down the aisle.
We attached Joanne's Dad's Boutonniere to his jacket, we'd clustered together a Black Bacarra Rose with fresh Rosemary, Skimmia, Viburnum Steel Berry, Thistle and foliages to create a beautiful Buttonhole.
In the Balmoral Suite at Bartle Hall the scene was set for ceremony
Two of our Byzantine Candelabras framed the ceremony space, posies and candles dressed the Registrars table and the ledge just behind the Registrars table
We'd lined the aisle with our golden Hurricane Lamps and fresh fragrant Rose Petals
Golden vessels filled with fresh flowers decorating the Registrars table
The ledge just behind the Registrars table was dressed with candles and posies of fresh flowers
Dressing the ledges around the bar and the dance floor more gorgeous posies of fresh flowers in golden vessels
We lined up all of the Boutonnieres on the bar ready to pin them on to our Bride Groom Stuart and all of the special guests
The Groom's Men's Boutonnieres in shades of plum and burgundy
Special Ladies Ivory Rose Boutonnieres
The Groom's Mum's Corsage of pale blush Bombastic Roses
First to have his seriously special boutonniere pinned to his lapel was our super handsome Bride Groom the very lovely Stuart
The Bride Groom's Rustic Boutonniere had a flavour of the 'Country Gent' about it, featuring a beautiful Black Baccara Rose, a tiny Fir Cone, Eryngium Thistle and Berries, we'd bound the stem with string to compliment Stuart's tweed jacket
All of the Boutonnieres looked festive and seasonal, Chloe pinned each one on to ensure perfect positioning
The Groom's Mum Gill looked super glam and her corsage of Bombastic Roses complimented her ensemble perfectly
The Bridesmaids started to make their way down the main stair case over in the Manor House at Bartle Hall, they looked delightful
The shades of plums, nudes and burgundy looked so elegant with the Bridesmaids gowns
Our stunning Bride Joanne looked absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, we loved her Mark Lesley gown from Lacy Days in Ramsbottom
Huge Congratulations to Joanne & Stuart from all of the team here at Flower Design
First to congratulate our Bride & Groom was the very lovely Heather who does a great job of looking after operations on the day and ensuring the Bride & Groom have the most perfect day xxx
The Balmoral Suite had been completely transformed from ceremony to reception whilst all of the guests were enjoying the drinks reception
The tables were dressed with a combination of high and low candlelit table designs
Our Golden Byzantine Candelabras looked magnificent on the dining tables
The top table looked wonderful dressed with a series of golden vessels filled with fresh flowers and golden candlesticks and votives
Each table design was quite unique, all of them looked romantic with a rosy golden glow
The dining chairs and golden table cloths were provided by the great folks from Creative Cover Hire
The blend of colours worked so perfectly creating the overall Plum and gold vibe our Bride & Groom had worked towards
Beautiful Bridal Bouquet in wintery plum shades
