We arranged a selection of high and low table designs, I love the low silver fruit bowl filled to overflowing with Calla Lilies, Roses and Orchids in shades of deep purple and lavender
The tall designs were on our elegant silver candlesticks topped with a sphere of Roses, Herbs, Orchids and Lissianthus
The Cake of cheeses was just amazing from the Cheese Hamlet in Didsbury, just finished off with a few flowers
This was such a special wedding in many ways and we'd really like to thank Paul and Lynn for choosing Flower Design Events to create their wedding flowers for such an amazing day!!!
