Cvil Ceremony at The Great Hall at Mains, Richard & Lesley Parsons, 28th March 2009

Richard & Lesley chose the outstandingly wonderful Great Hall at Mains for their full on family wedding, with forty nine children on the guest list, this was always going to be a big proper family celebration.We dressed the ceremony with tall conical vases filled with fresh spring flowers including Eremurus and golden Cymbidium Orchids.
These tall vases were to be used later on the dining tables.
The registrars table design was dominated by chunky candles to lend a little romance, we used lots of fragrant flowers in this design including cream stocks & hyacinths, their fragrance filled The Great Hall with the scent of fresh spring flowers.
This is the lovely Gemma from TGHM lighting all the myriad of candles.

Roger & Adele owners of TGHM and the uber efficient Caroline from Twelve Event Management, the Twelve Team really did a superb job of catering for such a diverse range of ages, there was something for everyone!

Chriss is always on hand to assist the beautiful bride from her car

Our extremely gorgeous Bride, Lesley carried a bouquet of sweet smelling spring blooms, I've spun a web of gold thread over the bouquet that just catches the light, click on the image to enlarge.

This Flower Design Bridal Bouquet was made as trial bouquet for Lesley a few weeks ago click on the link to see the original design.

This hand tied wedding bouquet includes the first of this seasons white peonies and Metalina Roses, White Lilac, Viburnum Opulus, Vendella & Avalanche Roses.

The bridesmaid's waited patiently ...

Lesley looked absolutely perfect...

A Kiss on the cheek

The ceremony was lovely and all of the children were brilliantly well behaved, they all seemed to genuinley enjoy the ceremony, every credit to the excellent Registrars.

The Great Hall at Mains is a superb venue for a civil ceremony, the room has a grandeur that makes it worthy of the vows being said.

The official photographer for the day was the enigmatic Martyn Pearson, we're really looking forward to seeing his work! Here's a link to his web site, Martyn did the photography at one of our florists weddings you'll be able to see her gallery look out for Jo & Jamie Fenwick.

Congratulations Lesley & Richard and many thanks for letting us be involved in your Big Day

There was also lots of kissing going on...

Lesley's wedding bouquet really suited her, her colouring, the time of year and the style of day Richard & Lesley wanted, relaxed, fun yet meaningful and elegant.

Lesley's hair and all the beautiful bridesmaid's hair was created by my very good friend Sol, from Sol's Hair & Beauty on Clifton Drive, Lytham St Annes, here's a link to Sol in action at one of our events.

The children had loads of outdoor toys from Sunshine Events and Taz the amazing children's entertainer seriously entertained.

All of the children had an amazing time

Dried Rose Petal Confetti Cones provided by TGHM

I love rose petal confetti, it's the perfect start to the celebrations

Richard looks like the cat that got the cream!

The Twelve Canapes were child friendly as well as being adult pleasers and they tasted delicious

The Chair covers were provided by Creative Cover Hire

Twelve are all about attention
to detail and even the butter gets a 12 makeover.
Lesley's brief stated that all of the table decorations were to be Flower Design hand ties in
their own water bubbles so that at the end of the evening all of Lesley's girlfriends could each take one home with them.

Jane, once again - superb floral displays - I loved the subtle colours here, it so complimented the venue and the chair covers. If you take anymore pictures of Chriss, she'll be asking for a clothes allowance!!
Adele and all at TGH
