This was such a beautiful wedding day full of autumnal fruits, berries and sensational texture inspired by the magnificent Tudor surroundings of Samlesbury Hall, we really wanted the designs to look as if they belonged, sympathetic to this wonderful hall and to the season, bags of character and detail, the floral designs were reminiscent of ancient tapestries and bowls of Pot pourri, rich in colour, fragrance and texture.
Our lovely Bride Charlotte was getting ready in The Bridal Lodge, it really is a superb space to get ready in, lots of natural light and within the grounds of Samlesbury too.
Charlotte's wedding bouquet was a sumptuous collection of Velvety Grand Amore, Vintage Memory Lane & delicate Tamango Roses, Glossy Schwartzwalder Calla Lilies, Rose Hips, Black Pearl Viburnum Berries, Fresh Heather, Sedum, fragrant Rosemary, Albiflora and Classic Hydrangeas all gathered together to create a bridal bouquet that could have almost been picked from the gardens
Salmesbury Hall's gardens looked truly magical on such a glorious autumn day!
Our gorgeous Bride Groom's special boutonniere of fresh Rosemary, a Grand Amore Rose, Rose Hips, Skimmia and Sedum a perfect combination for the season
The Usher's Boutonniere's were a simpler version of the Bride Groom's with sprig of Rosemary a Grand Amore Rose and some fresh Sedum
The Groom's Mum's Hand bag Corsage of a Black Calla lily and a Tamango Rose bud
The registrars table design was just heavenly again lots of texture, illuminated by a cluster of chapel candles in the centre of the design and fresh Grand Amore Roses creating a magnificent focal point, add to this luscious Hydrangeas, Memory Lane Roses, Schwartzwalder Calla Lilies, lots of berries and autumnal leaves and foliages and you really do get a magnificent arrangement to grace this most important table.
The fires were lit and roaring throughout the building a lovely warm welcome for the guests

Following the reception drinks outside on the lawn (Who would have thought it possible in November in Lancashire!!) the festivities moved into The Great Hall
The top table looked utterly magnificent under the watchful eye of Queen Anne I think!
We'd dressed the wedding cake with a miniature version of Charlotte's wedding Bouquet the perfect cake topper, the Rose Petals had been Rolled to create min Memory Lane Roses
The table centres were just lovely fabulous Hurricane Lamps in the centre of a magnificent ring of fresh fruits, berries, Roses, Hydrangeas, Herbs and Foliages, the fragrance was delightful
The taller designs were created on our elegant candelabras, the flowers looked luscious and full
This is such a magnificent banqueting hall one of the most glorious in Lancashire!!!
The atmosphere was just so warm and cosy, the candelabras just look so at home here!
