Augill Castle Christmas Wedding
Augill Castle is an amazing find and if you're looking for somewhere quintisentially English, cosy, intimate, romantic, atmospheric, classy and quite simply fabulous then this would be the perfect choice for a 2009 or 2010 wedding venue. I absolutely adored this wedding bouquet, I used a fabulous combination of natural wintery materials twisted branches and ivy trails alongside secretive delicate Lily of the Valley, Ladies Slipper Orchids & Christmas Roses, I hand tied the design to give it a feeling of spontanaiety and wildness that is essential in a venue like Augill Castle.
I used some lovely Begonia Rex leaves and skimmia berries to add depth, light and shade to the design.
It is so important to carry your bouquet properly and we always do a little bouquet handling lesson when we deliver the bouquet to the bedroom. Lorraine was absolutely a natural and carried her bouquet with flair.
These are the two adult Bridesmaids bouquets and the Flower Girls bouquet.
The Groom's boutonierre was designed to compliment Lorraine's bouquet the Ladies Slipper "Paphiopedlilum" Orchid dominated with rolled Black Baccara rose petals to add the all essential colour contrast.
The gorgeous Flower Girl looked totally perfect, her bouquet was in proportion and easy for her to manage.
The dining room at Augill is wonderful and we dressed it with very simply decorated candelabras, I sprinkled some fresh rose petals and placed tea lights in frosted votives on the table top. Each guest had a handmade Christmas cracker at their place setting.
