Chris & Claire's "Burnt Orange, Black & White" Wedding Day at St Chad's & Twelve in Thornton.

As usual on a Saturday morning Gary was up ladders, this time we're at Twelve in Thornton hanging our chandeliers loaded with Phalaenopsis Orchids, these had to be hung before tables were laid, Dawn from Creative Cover Hire was ironing the chair covers and Caroline & Dulcie were getting Twelve ready for the wedding.

Then to the lovely Claire's house to deliver her Wedding Bouquet and the Bridesmaid's wrist corsages. She was seriously excited as you can see.

Claire's bouquet was created from White Phalaenopsis Orchids, Arum & Zantedeschia Crystal Blush and Stephanotis together with a selection of grasses.

We had a few tears of joy.

I designed very full wrist corsages for the bridesmaids and Deborah all with lovely Phalaenopsis Orchids.

Claire's Bridesmaid's were totally gorgeous Sarah, Linda, Tina & Vicky and Flower Girl Elise These two young men Josh & Oliver were by far the most handsome men on the day, (they did wear shirts later on!). We made them both boutonnieres of Dendrobium & Stephanotis.

Then we went St. Chads in Poulton to meet the lovely Groom Chris he's such a gentleman!, he wore a bouttoniere of Phalaenopsis Orchid

And his Groom's Men James Sam & Philip, we made them Mango Calla Lily buttonholes.

Geraldine "Groom's Mum" wore an ivory corsage of Callas, Phalaenopsis & Stephanotis.

Best Man Simon really had his work cut out keeping Chris calm.
The gents suits were all from Dan Kerr

We made Elise a magic wand with Orchids & Stephanotis

The bride arrived in a burnt orange Range Rover, the bridesmaid's in black ones, from Prestige Car Hire

Claire's fabulous Benjamin Roberts gown was from Dreamcatcher Bridal in Kirkham

Claires Cascade bouquet was delicious

The Choir directed by Kadria Thomas were absolutely amazing "Accord" they reallly did lift the roof, everyone was dancing in the aisle, clapping and singing along.

Massive congratulations to Claire & Chris, what a fantastic wedding!

I adore a bouqet that can be flung around the shoulders of friends in great big hugs!

Then to Twelve Restaurant for the reception

Twelve is my personal favourite Restaurant on The Fylde, the food is special, contemporary and simply superb, the space is breathtaking and the management and staff are faultless.

We arranged a series of glass and mirror cubes in varying sizes on mirror tiles, we used white Peonis, Mango Callas, Green Hydrangeas and Orchid heads.

The Twelve Team headed up by Caroline and Paul
Love the Bar

Dulcie serving drinks

Love the detail of orange sugar rim on the toasting glasses, I have to say only at Twelve do we see this kind of detail and finish.
