Emma & Andrew Crossley's Elegant Apricot & Ivory Wedding Day Inspired by French Patisserie

Emma and all of her beautiful Bridesmaids and her lovely parents were getting ready in one of the gorgeous suites at The Grand Hotel in St Annes, when our event florists Rachel & Olivia presented the wedding bouquets to them.There's nothing like a completely delighted Bride on her wedding morning to warm the cockles of an event florists heart and Emma didn't let us down she was really thrilled.

Oh and the fragrance well with all of that delicious fragranced flora what can you expect, I included in Emma's wedding bouquet David Austin's Patience & Juliet Roses, Lily of the Valley, Tuberosa, Apricot Sweet Peas and lots of lovely herbs.

The ceremony space at The Grand was dressed perfectly with fabulous fresh flowers and beautiful linen drapery provided by Creative Cover Hire.

The Chairs had posies of Sweet Peas and Hydrangeas attached to the end chair of each alternate Chair along the aisle.

The Pedestal designs were elegant and sumptuous and I included White Delphinium Elatum, Astilbe, Hydrangeas, Roses, Dahlias and Tuberosa
The Registrars table design was a simple and traditional, it complimented the two pedestal beautifully

The professional photography was provided by the lovely Mike & Caroline Challinor, I've been working with them for the last 20 years, they are so experienced and it's such a pleasure to work with them

The Bridal party made there way down The Grand's fabulous staircase Emma looked so elegant and beautiful

Huge congratulations this lovely, lovely couple

Rachel & Olivia then started to organise the flowers for the dining tables, they were working on a "French Patisserie" theme so all of the tables were dressed with a really cute combination of Cake Stands, Floral Cup Cakes, Silver Fruit Bowls, Trifle Dishes, Coffee Sets all filled with elegant fresh flowers

This was a very delicious wedding and we all had great fun with the designs, many, many thanks to Emma & Andrew for choosing to use Flower Design to create their Bridal Flowers


Lovely! What is the delicate little greenery that is peeking out from behind in the bride's bouquet and from the Macaron centerpiece? I keep noticing it.
I get so many great ideas from you! I love the floral cupcake centerpieces - and the passion flower garland is wonderful!
