Elegant Forget Me Not Blue Christmas Wedding at The Clifton Arms of Rebecca & Craig Tonner
Rebecca is just so beautiful, with truly fabulous taste, she was seriously well organised and provided me with a superb brief!
The Blue & Silver colour palette was inspired by the decor in the elegant dining room at The Clifton Arms where the wedding breakfast was to be served, Rebecca had chosen an exquisite shade of Forget Me Not blue for her Bridesmaid & Flower Girls, we'd chosen a collection of winter and spring fragrant blooms to work with which was such a joy!
First stop then Rebecca & Craig's Home to deliver the Bridal Bouquets, we were greeted by the lovely fresh welcome ring on the front door, Jason presented the bouquets....
The shades of blue were enhanced by the lovely opal like Mistletoe Berries and the Amnesia Roses
Jason pinned on Rebecca's gorgeous Mum's epaulette corsage of rolled Amnesia Rose Petals, Miniature Phalaenopsis Orchids and silver Eryngium thistles
The Clifton Arms was the venue for both the ceremony and reception with both having a fabulous view over Lytham Green
We met up with the super handsome Bride Groom Craig
