Chris & Vikki's “Wild Winter Forest Wedding” at The Great Hall at Mains

“A Wild Winter Forest Wedding”

I’m thinking a bit Maid Marion & Robin Hood meets 60’s Hippies or Bikers, I know this sounds a little random but then that's Vikki & Chris for you!
All the designs will be relaxed and spontaneous, not regimented or polished in any way. I feel I've prepared you all for this visual feast...

It was a lesson in multi tasking, the hair dressers doing the Bridesmaid's hair, whilst the Bridesmaid puts make up on the bride and the florist is putting fresh flowers in the flower girls hair, I do hope you're all keeping up!

The Bride's very elegant foot wear

Mia is the most perfect flower girl, quite gorgeous and a little girl who knows how to handle her flowers.

The Bridesmaid/Make up Artist is the lovely Sonara Parker we've worked with her before at the Dan Kerr bridal event, she does seriously fabulous make up for weddings and events.

More flowers were placed in the bridesmaid's hair, we individually wire rolled rose petals and clusters of Skimmia berries.
Then Jess and I went to the majestic Great Hall at Mains to meet up with the groom Chris
The Registrars table was dressed with an elaborate design incorporating lots of spruces and evergreens, fresh contorted willow and lots and lots of fresh fragrant roses.
The pedestal design was again dominated by contorted willow and Blue Spruce, Eucalyptus and evergreens, the heart of the design includes Avalanche, Darcey, Patience, Amalia & Ranuncula Roses.

We dressed the chairs with posies of fresh flowers that were later used on the light fittings

The Great Hall has the most beautiful Christmas Tree decorated in shimmering gold.

The gorgeous Gemma from The Great Hall, calms Chris's nerves

This Mustang was the perfect car to deliver Vikki (Can you believe it's December and the roof is off)
Sonara & Mia

Look at those boots!
The Bridal bouquet was a Flower Design wild and frenzied affair, with lichen branches, contorted willow, lots of Christmas foliages including fragrant Rosemary, Paphiopedilum Orchids, Claret Ranunculas, Darcey, Amalia, Patience & Grand Prix Roses and some beautiful Christmas Roses.

The gowns were from Dan Kerr bridal in Blackpool
Everyone was waiting patiently inside for the arrival of the beautiful Bride & her Bridesmaids.

The shades of roses were chosen to compliment Vikki's individual hair colour.

These two are madly in love and so completely happy, this is what happens when you marry your bestest friend in the whole world, you just can't stop all that kissing!

Chriss (Who's looking seriously hot these days!) was ready with the bubbles!
This is Jane, my favourite registrar, I'm told you can make a request for your choice of registrar, trust me folks this is the girl for you if your planning a civil ceremony around The Fylde.

Twelve were in charge of the catering, their canapes are totally delicious as is of course everything they do (you know where Jason & I'll be on New Years Eve!).

This is our Floral Seating Plan, based on a Christmas Door Wreath

Fresh Flowers on the bar

I love the attention to detail you get with Twelve, their cutlery gleams!

I used fresh Holly leaves tied to the glasses for the place cards

Rolys Fudge provided the delicious table favours

I arranged "Verdi Gris" candelabras on a couple of the tables
Others were dressed with a Verdi Gris chalice filled with fresh flowers

And gorgeous pedestal style bowls again filled with fresh flowers to compliment the whole room.

The registrars table design then moved to the top table

And the chair dressings moved to the light fittings

The Great Hall is a truly magical space perfect for winter weddings, warm and cosy, romantic and majestic.
Many many congratulations to Chris & Vikki and many thanks to them for choosing Flower Design to create the flowers for their super special day.
