Jennifer & Matt Clancy's "Bejewelled" Wedding Day at St Michael's Kirkham & Ribby Hall

I love this family, this is the second fabulous wedding we've created the flowers for, and they really do know how to plan the most spectacular wedding days, Jennifer & Matt's day exceeded all of my expectations, every single detail was just perfect, I make no apology for the size of this posting, I didn't want to miss anything out, so enjoy...


As usual we'll start with presenting the bridal bouquets, always a heart stopping moment for me, Jennifer had the most glamorous of Bridal Bouquets a collection of exquisite Orchids, Phalenopsis "Red Lips", Vanda "Purple Magic", Debdrobium "Madame Pompadour" exquisite Gloriosa Rothschild and lots more loveliness besides.The lovely Leanne with the exceptionally delicate "Flower Girls" Posy
The very proud Father of the Bride

Helen the fabulous Brides Mum

Matt, Jennifer's Groom had sent her a gorgeous Tiffany necklace

Then we were off to St Michael's in Kirkham a really stunning Church, everyone was so helpful there too, many thanks to the team there, they really did go above and beyond. The pedestals were HUGE and included a vibrant assortment of Roses, Hydrangeas "You & me Together", Stocks, Delphiniums, Alliums, Gladioli, Molucella and a luscious selection of foliages

Outside the front door we'd arranged two Bay Trees dressed with deep purple Lissianthus and Fragrant fresh lavender for a fragrant welcome to the congregation

Malcolm gave everything a thoroughly good "Super Spray".

The Pews were dressed with Posies of Stocks, Anthuriums, Dendrobium and Sweet Peas

The Altar looked magnificent with two beautiful pedestals in white created by the lovely ladies of the parish and a Purple and Deep Pink design created to sit on the floor infront of the Altar.
The Bell Ringers arrived thankfully with the key to the Bell Tower

The celebrations moved to Ribby Hall, where the theme was "Jewels" the Top Table was of course "The Diamond Table" and was strewn with string of diamantes and sprkinkled with them too, it all looked so sparkly
The Top Table design was created on a runner of mirrors with Crystal bowls and vases filled with Orchids, Hydrangeas and all sorts of delicate blooms in the deep purple and pink shades

The guest tables were dressed with our elegant tall silver candlesticks, these were dripping with candlelit orbs and crystal strands,fresh Orchids and fragrant Roses

The stationary was just beautiful created by the brilliant Leanne Kirzanek the Brides sisterThe guest tables had a combination of designs the candlesticks and these opulent black martini vases, the designs were dominated by the towering Gladioli I love Gladioli it was the very first flower I ever bought for myself, I love it's striving character and absolute elegance, alongside these we use Alliums, Anthuriums, Campanula Pyramide, Purple Power Roses and Phalaenopsis Orchids.

A crystal basket of Curcuma Fruits and Hydrangeas
The Pew end Posies from Church were placed into glass vases and used to decorate the windowsills and the evening tables

Ribby Hall do an amazing job, their standards are so high and the C&B team are just brilliant, it's always a pleasure to do an event there.

Our work here was done, Malcolm & I dragged our weary bones back to FD HQ, we were exhausted but it's that good sort of exhausted when you know you've done your best and hopefully created something memorable!


Massive thanks to the Ball & Clancy families for choosing Flower Design Events to create the flowers for this truly wonderous day! xxxx
