"It's all About the Bride Groom" Part 3. Sarah & Ryan
The Venue was this fabulous house originally built in 1582 as a private home for three-times Lord Mayor of London, Sir Richard Martin, Lauderdale House in Highgate is now a community hub, they do loads of exhibitions and events, besides weddings.
I just wanted you my lovely readers to see everything in context, so a few images from around and abouts this fabulous house, which had apparently suffered from a massive fire and has been recently renovated well in 1893 anyway!

Jason Pinning on the Best Man's (another Ryan that was all a bit confusing!) Avalanche Rose Buttonhole

The Ceremony space looked really fabulous, the bunting was perfect amongst the eclectic art work and Grand Piano
We'd arranged the flowers randomly but creating a beautiful backdrop and framing to the ceremony space. Two pedestals of typically English Garden Blooms including Alliums, Delphiniums, Larkspur, Hydrangeas, Roses, Peonies and Dangling Amaranthus
The little bespoke vases I dotted around the space were in such a wide range of colours I could pretty much match up each painting to each posy, this was my favourite match up!
On the registrars table, crystal baskets and vases, desert dishes and sundae bowls filled with a plethora of English garden flowers and herbs
This is such a lovely little crystal basket it was made to celebrate the Coronation of George IV, it always looks so perfect with English flowers like Love in the Mist, Alchemilla Mollis, Astilbe, Peonies and Sweet Williams.
Ranunculas, Viburnum Opulus and Sweet Peas in little vintage vases
Sweet Williams and Rose buds
This area is just behind the Registrars table, I used some more random shaped crystal containers which again created the perfect random atmosphere
The Windowsills and literally any empty space was dressed up with a few well placed blooms. The Garden style urns were overflowing with English Delphiniums, Larkspur, Peonies and Hydrangeas, fresh Ivy trails and Dangly Amaranthus poured over the edges to the plinth.
Out Door's we lit our lanterns and placed vases on the white linen covered tables that were all prepared for the drinks reception after.
