Seriously Vintage Wedding of Becki & Chris Hughes at The Great Hall at Mains

Lots of fabulous chintz, a little randomness, superb afternoon tea and even a story of Lovely Dinaosaur's, does this sound like one very interesting wedding day, I think so!!!!
Becki, Chris & I had some of the very best meetings not least because Becki & Chris were really into it, the wedding was a true representation of these two, so much beautiful detail, everything done so elegantly and organised so well, no stone was left un-turned every item, purchase and subsequent decision was seriously considered and the end result, well see for yourself but I'm sure you'll agree it's just simply stunning!!!!!!
First delivery of the day to The Cartford Inn to present the beautiful Bridal Flowers

The Carford Inn has lovely vintage decor perfect for Becki's pre-wedding photographs, not only that but just how cute is Becki's "Getting Ready Frock" it couldn't match the bridal bouquet any better if it tried!

Becki's Wedding Bouquet was a glorious collection of English Garden Roses, freeze dried Peonies, Dill, Rosemary, Astrantia, Eucalyptus and fresh Hostas, a real graden gathered wedding bouquet
The gorgeous Bridesmaids Nichola & Gemma were equally perfectly attired and loved their Pommanders
We created one with a pearl handle and lace ribbons and the other with a lace handle and pearl flourish

I love these retro pommanders of Roses, Hydrangeas, Sedum, Dill and fresh fragrant herbs

 The venue for the ceremony was one of my all time favourites the fabulous The Great Hall at Mains
The Chairs were dressed alternately with lace and sateen, another of those seriously considered choices from Becki & Chris that worked so brilliantly, we'd arranged posies of fresh Stocks, Roses, Lissianthus and Astrantia in the backs of the chairs lining the aisle

The seating plan another stroke of genius, the flowers were arranged in vinage tea cups, milk jugs, sugar bowls etc etc and each of the tables were named after Afternoon Tea delicacies like Cherry Scone, Victoria Sandwich, French Fancy, Strawberry Tarts to name but a few

At the foot of the aisle we'd arranged a little "Afternoon Tea" tableau with a floral tea tray sat on our lovely filigree table and chairs

On the registrars tables we delicately placed lots of vintage crystal again filled with lovely fresh seasonal flowers

It was all about the detail, even the backs of the Registrars chairs were dressed beautifully

The aisle was lined with fresh fragrant Rose petals and glass hurricane lamps

The guests were presented with this Edward Monkton Classic which was of course read out during the service, wonderful stuff eh!!!

On the bar a candle lit Bird Cage surrounded by a sumptuous array of luscious blooms including some fabulous Liliputt Asters
A fabulous three tier cake stand filled with floral confectionary

Chris had a very special Boutonniere of a David Austin Rose, surrounded by rolled petals of a Darcey Rose, Hydrangea & Viburnum florets and a spritz of Champagne Grass to finish

The Ushers all had different Roses pinned onto their lapels

Becki looked completely gorgeous and very excited when she arrived carrying her beautiful Vintage wedding bouquet
After meeting with the Registrar in the office Becki headed back to the car for the short drive round to main entrance

I absolutely adore this pommanders

As the Bride & Groom together with their guests enjoyed sparkling reception, the FD team got to work on re-arranging the flowers for the wedding breakfast

Cup Cake Cancer Research UK Pins for favours, just perfect!
How amazing this beautiful "Afternoon Tea Pot " Cake
The Chair back posies were transferred into little glass vases and used on the bar tables
