The Divine Wedding at Samlesbury Hall of Annie & Andrew

This was such a special wedding day for a really gorgeous couple, we'd had lots of fun planning the flowers and had decided upon a collection of typically English blooms befitting of the spectacular setting of Samlesbury Hall.


Ruby & Sophie caught up with the very lovely Annie and her two Bridesmaids at The Lodge, Ruby showed our girls how to manage their bridal bouquets throughout the day

I'd included English garden Roses, Pot pourri favourites like Lavender, Rosemary and Peppermint to enhance the Tudor vibe that prevails at Samlesbury Hall

Outside Ruby & Sophie arranged our lanterns the benefit of which wouldn't fully enjoyed until the evening but I have it on good authority they were much admired!

Inside the Chapel the chairs were covered and then tied with deep green sashes, we put small "Nosegays" of fresh fragrant flowers in the bows on alternate chairs down the aisle

We included Fragrant Stocks, Marjoram, Dahlias, Roses, Astrantia, Sweet Peas, Ivy and Grasses in the pew end posies

On the registrars table we placed a traditional design in a plethora of summer shades, the fragrance was enhanced by the warmth created by the candle in the centre of the design

Once all of the candle were lit our florists moved their attention to the buttonholes for the Groom's party

The Reception was held in the dramatic banqueting hall, we'd designed a combination of high and low table centrepieces, tall elegant silver candle sticks topped with some beautiful English blooms arranged in a Topiary style to compliment the venue

The top table design was in a traditional style with two candles dominating the centre and small posies of fresh flowers stretching it to the outer reaches of the table.

The lower designs were delightful silver fruit bowls filled with glorious summer blooms

The entire Hall looked stunning, but then it always does, Samlesbury Hall is a fabulous venue the team do a magnificent job and really is a huge pleasure to work there!

Ruby & Sophie thoroughly enjoyed working with Tom Barker the official photographer for the day and they both said they would have no hesitation in reccommending him
