Becky & Andy Cowderoy's Black & White (& Slightly James Bond Themed) Wedding Day at All Hallows Church & Mitton Hall
All Hallows Church, Great Mitton is a little gem, an exceptionally beautiful Medieval Church, it's history dating back to 1270, the setting is glorious and the atmosphere can only be described as "Loved", it's literally just down the Road from Mitton Hall making it the perfect choice for the serious & romantic business of marriage. (It's also just across the road from The Three Fishes fab for local pub food)
Jason & I met up with Gary & Emma at the Church on Friday evening to decorate the internal arch, we were lucky enough to be given a full guided tour which was just brilliant.
We decorated the pews with clusters of Kochia, Arabicum & Roses.
The arch looked glorious with lots of Patience & Avalanche Roses, Hydrangeas and Eucalyptus, Fresh Fragrant Jasmine, trails of Ivy & trailing Amaranthus.
Saturday Morning; After leaving Jason at St Annes Parish Church Gary & I headed off to Orchard Cottages at Waddington to find our lovely Bride Becky, we managed a couple of delicious bacon butties courtesy of Becky's Mum Erica before the presentation of the bridal bouquets. (The cottages were quite fabulous the perfect space for bridal parties to get ready)
Meet the lovliest of Grooms AndyAndy's Scottish heritage was symbolised by the use of white Heather & Thistle along with Becky's English Rose Patience.

Lots of guests buttonholes and wrist corsages
Erica looking superb, Rosie had designed one of her very special corsages and had included some red hot black Chilies.The Bridesmaids looking so wonderful
The photographer on the day was super sexy Spencer (from Repartage Photography in London) sporting a very shiny Italian suit, Spencer is a brilliant photographer, he's one of our favourites.
Malvern Cars immaculate, on time and friendly drivers what more does anyone want from your wedding car company.
Becky looked so fabulous in her Stephanie Allin gown
I used lots of naturally Black, Ivory and Grey materials in these bouquets.
The bridal bouquet was in my humble opinion heavenly, the collection of roses, Inga berries, Arabicum, Anemones, Ranunculas, Chillis, Mimosa foliage, Eucalyptus and Jasmine made for an exquisitely fragrant wedding bouquet.
Oh so many congratulations to Rebecca & Andrew and what a perfect day!
