Gillian & Martin's Fabulous Great Hall at Mains Wedding Day

I think I love Autumn the best, I love the colour of the air, I love the materials, the richness, the textures, glossy berries and golden leaves, velvety roses and taffeta celosia.
I was really looking forward to this wedding, for lots of reasons, Gillian & Martin are fab & fun with capital F's, The Great Hall at Mains is one of my all time favourite venues and I'd be working with my old sparring partner Jonny Draper Photography, the caterers were the incredible Twelve Event Management Team all in all a fantastic day was to be had for all involved!

Gillian and her girls were all getting ready at The Shard Riverside Inn just over the bridge from TGHM, a little emotional hand over the bouquet...

The Brides Mum's Phalaenopsis Orchid epaulette corsage

Then we were off to the awesome The Great Hall at Mains The registrars table design was filled with glorious autumnal berries, fragrant Eucalyptus & Rosemary, David Austin's Darcy Roses and Hot Chocolate Calla Lilies yummy!!!
Martin was looking very relaxed and happy when I pinned on his rather special boutonnierre of Hot Chocolate Calla Lily, Vendella Rose, Rolled darcy Petals, berries and Ivy.

This space at TGHM is so perfect for a civil ceremonies the dimensions are very "Church like" making it worthy of the promises that are made there

The lovely Adele owner of TGHM busy taking pictures of everything including the delicious candy buffet An Amnesia Rose Boutonniere

The Groom's very glamorous Sister & Mum

Chriss is the manager at TGHM she heads up a seriously effecient and friendly team there, they really make everyone feel so welcome, service providers and guests alike which is what makes it such a joy to work there.

I had a touch of shoe envy so took the photograph of the most fabulous killer heels

Charlotte (Brand new bridal co-ordinator at TGHM) and Roger (Adele's hubby)

The fabulous Kerr Andrew Registrar extrodinaireThe little red Beetle was so cute

The Bride's Mum was looking fantastic This photograph was taken by Jonny Draper and I just loved it so I mithered and mithered until he sent it to me, thanks JD you are a star!
The Bridesmaid was wearing Teal so I created the wedding bouquet to tone perfectly

We all waited patiently on the steps outside for the arrival of The Bride & her Father
Inside The Groom & Best Men were waiting slightly less patiently

And it was so worth the wait Gillian looked wonderful and so did her dad

Chriss billowing the skirts (Attention to detail is what The Great Hall is famous for)

I'd arranged tall stands at the foot of the "aisle" these were topped with an explosion of Roses, Berries and Calla Lilies

Massive Congratulations to this fantastic couple

Gillian's bouquet in Magenta, Teal, Ruby Reds and Aubergine included David Austin's Darcy, Viburnum Opulus Berry, Magenta Celosia, Hot Chocolate Calla Lilies, Autumn Blue Hydrangeas and Quick Sand Roses

The table centrepieces incorporated the Brides own filigree card holder hearts these were used to hold individual table name (which included a little tale of why the name was chosen) and menu cards one for each guest to keep

The napkin rings were created from candy bracelets and watches

We arranged high and low designs as this gives texture and interest to the room

Candlelit Top Table traditional design
The caterers were the phenominal Twelve Event Management & Catering team

I had such a great day and I know Gillian & Martin did, huge thanks to them for choosing Flower Design to create and style the flowers for their Big Day!
