A Quintessentially English Rose Wedding Day at Lytham Hall
English Roses were of course the order of the day a delicious combination of David Austin's finest including their brand new Rose Keira along with Patience, Rosalind and Miranda, I also included some delicate sprigs of fresh peaceful Olive, the choice of the Bride Groom, I honestly couldn't think of a more perfect foliage for Fliss
The family home was dressed with fresh flowers in every room to mark such a special occasion
Then Jason & I were off to Lytham Hall to put the finishing touches to the decorations there, the fabulous entrance was lined with candlelit lanterns on hooks, Bay Trees & Buxus Trees and on the steps some lovely Birdcages dressed with Miranda Roses
The fragrant Bay Trees were sprinkled with Miranda, Rosalind & Patience Roses
Inside the magnificent entrance hall, a huge vase of very English country garden blooms sat on the central marble topped table, the Delphinium Elatum towered over the vase creating a dramtic look.
Inside the Gold Room where the ceremony was to take place, delicate vases of exquisite fresh flowers adorned the Registrars tables, mantlepiece and windowsills
On either side of the Ceremony space two ginormous vases of Delphiniums, Roses, Hydrangeas, Nerines, Molucella, Snowberry and Wax Flower Blossom graced the mirror tables.
On the backs of the chairs lining the aisle we'd arranged fragrant posies of Godetia, Roses, Hydrangeas and Thalaspi
Felicity's gorgeous Bride Groom Garreth, we'd created a special boutonniere of a Patience Rose, fresh Olive, Champagne Grass and rolled Rose Petals
The Wedding Cake was so beautiful with a replica of the bridal bouquet created entirely from sugar paste flowers all hand made by Felicity's talented Bridesmaid Emma
The Rose Boutonnieres all ready to be pinned on
The Bridesmaids and the Bride's beautiful Mum arrived ahead of the Bride
The Bridesmaid's Bouquets were in a delicate blend of pinks and ivories perfectly toning with their deep blue gowns
The most adorable page boy ever young Jake, who was wearing a miniature boutoniere of tiny white Rose buds and Oregano, perfect for a little person.

The tension was building in the ceremony room...
The wedding bouquet was so beautiful, light and delicate, fragrant and exquisite, fresh Lily of the Valley, Rose buds in all shades of pale pink and Ivory and English Garden Roses were combined with sprigs of Olive, and sweet scented Oregano.
Fresh Rose Petal confetti is just wonderful every Bride & Groom should know how fabulous it feels to be showered with them, they are silky soft, cool and fragrant, just what you need after getting married!
Delicious Canapes were served by the team from Rowley's Catering
The Gold Room was now being transformed into the most elegant banqueting room, the lovely English Rose theme continued with low table designs on each of the tables
Elegant silver fruit bowls filled to overflowing with luscious Roses, Viburnum Opulus, Nerines, Hydrangeas, Godetia, Weigelia, Astrantia, Sedum, Olive Foliages and Astilbe
The top table dressed with a collection of simple tiny column vases each filled with an individually created posy of fresh flowers
An exquisite Miranda Rose with a soft pink Nerine sat on a cushion of Sedum with a peaceful stem of fresh fragrant Olive striving for the light
Elegant sprouting Larkspur, Thalaspi and delicate Floribunda Roses with Lime Green Viburnum Opulus bound with pale pink satin ribbon
The elegant wedding stationary was provided by Kelly at Flutterby Couture
David Austin's Rosalind Roses with fresh Olives
I adore this room it's simply the most elegant wedding breakfast room, the wall paper is hand painted consequently the room looks more beautiful when you can see it, we decided to keep the table designs low to celebrate the beauty of the room, the two vases are all the height that's needed.
The clean and crisp chair covers were provided by the fabulous Dawn from Creative Cover Hire
