The Full Posting of the Classically Elegant Wedding Day at All Hallows Church Great Mitton & Mitton Hall
Contrary to popular belief I do have a very real passion for all white/ivory flowers. All flowers have pollen at their hearts and all have various shades of green stems consequently by using a selection of different flowers in an all white wedding bouquet design you can still ensure, light and shade and an element of texture, even without foliage and even on a very bright day.
Hayley's bridal bouquet was designed to compliment her "lace vintage" bridal gown, I chose to use some of my most favourite flowers; Fresh fragrant Lily of the Valley, Sweet Peas, White Peonies, Norma Jean Roses and Athena Roses to create the most classically elegant wedding bouquet imaginable.
The Bridesmaid's carried simple elegant and fragrant bouquets of Peonies and Sweet Peas
Hayley loved her wedding bouquet, she was very excited!!!!
The flower Girl's Bouquets were exquisite delicate bouquet's of White Sweet Peas and Lily of the Valley.
The Bride's Mum's Corsage of Lily of the Valley and Phalaenopsis Orchid
We pinned on the lovely Lily of the Valley and fresh Rosemary Boutonniere on the Page Boy's Jacket
All Hallows Church, Great Mitton a splendid Medieval Church, a really superb Church with the most excellent vicar Gill Mack
We arranged a luscious arch of David Austin's Roses Patience, White Hydrangeas, Peonies and a plethora of fragrant herbs and foliages around the front door into Church.
Just inside the doorway small posies decorated the hand rail with out obstructing its use
Then just to the left was this gloriously English style pedestal arrangement of white Delphiniums, Hydrangeas, Larkspur, Dahlias and Green Goddess Arum Lilies.
The Font was elegantly dressed with a garland of fresh Peonies, Hydrangeas, Roses, small size Delphiniums, Blackberries, Dangly Amaranthus, Ivy Trails and then the entire font was surrounded by fresh fragrant Norma Jean Rose Petals.
The Pews on either side had posies of fragrant Stocks, Peonies, Roses, Hydrangeas, Sweet Peas, Hostas and Ivy trails.
The Windowsill's were all dressed with candlelit lanterns set into clouds of Hydrangeas, Roses and Peonies and Sweet Peas.
The Lectern and all of the ledges around the Church had fragrant posies of Sweet Peas, Peonies, Roses and Blackberries, randomly arranged, simply to fill the space with the heavenly scent of fresh English Flowers.
The Altar had a very elegant vertical design sat on the floor just in front, this is where the register will be signed during the ceremony.
We adore this indoor arch, it frames the Bride Groom so perfectly throughout the entire marriage service, we used hundreds of Roses, Peonies, Hydrangeas, Sweet Peas and a fragrant selection of fresh Herbs and foliage's.
The Altar itself had a voluptuous posy of Hydrangeas, Sweet Peas, Rosemary and Peonies, it was placed there to remember very special people who couldn't be there to share this very special day
The very handsome Groom David arrived along with his Best Man, Dad & Ushers, each of them had a boutonierre of Fresh Lily of the Valley, with a sprig of Rosemary, pinned to their very "Sharp" suits.
The Groom's lovely Mum, had her corsage of Roses, Hydrangeas and Phalaenopsis Orchids attached to her handbag.
The car arrived bringing the Bridesmaids
The Flower Girl's Posy of Lily of the Valley and Sweet Peas
All white and fluffy, Peonies and Sweet Peas combined to create the perfect Bridesmaid's Bouquets, simple and exquisite
Patiently waiting for the arrival of the Bride
There was a huge amount of excitement....
Love this picture!
The ceremony was as ever with Gill Mack, personal, considered and very beautiful delivered.
The Register was signed
The left Church privately through the other door whilst the guests left via the front door, we'd dressed the little porch with posies and lanterns
At the front door our team were handing out Fresh fragrant Rose petal confetti
Sweet Peas in the Flower Girls Hair, matching their Sweet Pea & Lily of the Valley Posies to perfection.
A floral arch is just essential I think every bride deserves one!!!
Before when I mentioned how lovely this Bride & Groom are, this is why, they asked if they could go back into Church to see the fabulous flowers because they couldn't take them all in before, this is the sort of thing that warms the cockles of a completely exhausted florists heart.
Fresh Fragrant Rose Petal Confetti, you just can't beat it, nothing in the world smells or feels like it!!!
Then we were all off to the completely fabulous Mitton Hall for the celebrations, the drinks reception was held in the main hall and bars, we'd arranged Martini glasses with cocktails of fresh white blooms on the drinks tables and posies of fresh flowers in platinum coloured vases.
The Banqueting Room looked so magnificent, each place setting had an Avalanche Rose with a sprig of fresh Rosemary laid on each crisp white linen napkin.
The Minstrels gallery had fresh flowers arranged along the length of the bannister
Magnificent Mitton Hall's fireplace dressed with fresh arrangements of Delphiniums, Roses and Hydrangeas, dripping with Ivy & Dangly Amaranthus
The Grand Piano was covered and huge vase of fresh flowers sat proudly on top
We'd used Delphiniums, White Alliums, Norma Jean Roses and Coco Hydrangeas
The Seating Plan
The Quartet were fabulous
Outside on the terrace fresh flowers adorned the drinks tables
The two arch vases in the dining room were filled with fresh flowers, this room was transformed into a casino for the evening.
The Canapes looked delicious and were snapped up by the guests immediately
We used a combination of high and low designs on the dining table, I do love this look as it gives rhythm and texture to a room.
On the higher tables we used our tall silver candlesticks alongside our low silver fruit bowls
The silver fruit bowls were overflowing with Stocks, Peonies, Alchemilla Mollis, Norma Jean, Patience and Avalanche Roses, Hydrangeas, Sweet Peas and Hostas
The Top Table really was a sight to behold full and fabulous, fragrant and fantastic, a huge a quantity of fresh flowers were used but to great effect, along with candles in crystal candlesticks and Rose candles
The tall candlesticks were topped with a plume of English white Delphiniums, Alliums, Roses, Hydrangeas, Peonies and lots more lusciousness.
Dave is the man in charge for Mitton Hall on each wedding day, he is truly fabulous!!!!
The base of each candlestick was dressed with small posies in platinum vases and Rose candles also in platinum
This amazing white chocolate rose cake was by Slattery's and smelled and looked stupendous
Coffee table design in the main hall
Ultimate RomanceTime for a little privacy or may be not!
We were very honoured and priveleged to have been asked to create the flower styling for this glorious wedding, huge thanks to Hayley and David and their families for choosing Flower Design Events and for being so kind and generous to our team throughout the day!
