The Fabulous Black & White Wedding Day of Alistair & Kristina Cushing at Ribby Hall
These two are just fabulous, I love Alistair & Tina we've had some pretty memorable meetings, some colour changes, lots of design input and we've laughed a lot, I'm really going to miss them, thankfully Alistair only works across the road from us so hopefully we'll be seeing lots of him, not least to buy his beautiful new Bride flowers from time to time!!!!
So first stop the beautifully re-furbished Hotel & Spa at Ribby Hall Village to present Tina with her Bridal Bouquets
I'd created a very Wintery Wedding Bouquet of White Nerines, Champagne Grass, Paper Whites, Roses, Bouvardia, Lisianthus and black Viburnum Berries, Ivy Berries and all sorts of beautiful foliages and herbs perfect for a November Wedding Day
All the girls seemed pretty delighted with their bouquets which is always a huge relief
The handles on the Bridesmaids Bouquets were covered in black satin to compliment their gowns
We have a brand new legend of Ribby Hall's Spa Hotel, John, the exceptionally brilliant concierge, nothing and I mean nothing is too much trouble for him, he really was the most helpful and conscientious concierge ever!!!
Alistair's very special Groom's Boutonniere

A very proud Bride's Father
The two Fathers and Alistair's Groom's Men were all wearing a simple elegant Avalanche Rose with Black Viburnum Berries and ivy leaves in their buttonholes
The ceremony was held in The Rowan Suite with two fabulously huge Black Martini Glasses filled with a voluptuous arrangements of Roses, Hydrangeas, Gerberas and foliages these were sat on stands and framed the ceremony area
The Chairs lining the aisle were dressed with fresh posies of Roses, Calla Lilies, Bouvardia, Hydrangeas and Gerberas

Everyone made their way outside to enjoy the lovely gardens, who'd have thought it possible in November?
Inside the fabulous Garden Suite where the wedding breakfast was to take place
The posies from the chairs lining the aisle were transferred into vases and were used to decorate the windowsills, later they along with all of the table designs would be used on the evening tables back in The Rowan Suite
The dining tables were dressed with a combination of high and low table centrepieces.
Tall elegant giant black Martini Glasses filled with fabulous black and white fresh flowers
Some of the lower designs were large goldfish bowls with a candle in the centre surrounded by Schwartzwalder Calla Lilies, Nerines, Paper Whites and Germinis
Some of the tables were dressed with our spectacular silver candleabras surrounded by fresh fragrant Norma Jean Roses, Germini's Husky, Bouvardia Snowflake and delicate Bouvardia
The top table looked fabulous with the Registrars arrangement used in the centre and small Martini Glasses and mini Goldfish bowls on mirrors used to extend the design to the edges
One of the Mini Goldfish Bowls with black waxed apples
We created Martini Glass designs in two sizes and filled them with Paper Whites, Hydrangeas and Nerines
This is such a fabulous Room with great views over the gardens, Ribby Hall is truly a fabulous Wedding Venue, the Weddings & Event team are simply superb and it really is a pleasure to work there, we always get incredibly good feed back from our Brides & Grooms about the venue and everyone raves about the high standard of service and food!!!!
The baroque style candelabras always look superb against the backdrop of the lovely black and silver baroque style wall paper in The Garden Suite
