Part 3) The Epic Wedding Day of Yvette & Chris "The Church Bit" at St Bartholamew's Church Chipping and The Inn at Whitewell
St Bart's in Chipping is one of those magnificent Churches that seems to have it all; the most beautiful and historic building in a mesmerizing setting with manicured gardens, fabulous Bells, a wonderful choir and a sensational Vicar!
Jason and I were there early to put the finishing touches to the floral Arch around the Church Door, we wanted the look to be voluptuous and extravagant with some heavenly fragrances circulating the village of Chipping, deliciously fragrant Stocks, Peonies, English Garden Roses and Sweet Peas were used amongst a base of fragrant English Herbs
We were back at lunch time just ahead of the guests to light all of the candles in the lanterns lining the path leading to the Church door
Inside the windowsills were decorated with posies of fresh flowers and candlelit Birdcages
By the Font a magnificent Pedestal greeted the guests as they arrived, we'd included statuesque Delphiniums, Stocks and Molucella alongside fluffy Hydrangeas and velvety fragranced Norma Jean Roses and Astilbe
The ancient internal pillars were swathed with natural garlands of Sperengerii, Hostas, Amaranthus, Peonies, Hydrangeas and Roses
Each alternate pew end had a posy of Astilbe Roses and Hydrangeas
On either side of the Altar two elegant designs of Gladioli Delphiniums, Antirhinnums, Roses and Hydrangeas sat on the two corner shelves
Around the pulpit a lovely design of Hydrangeas Lissianthus, Dill, Hydrangeas and sperengerii tumbled over the sides beautifully
Out side the gates depicted the Bride & Grooms intials in fresh flowers, the hand rails were dressed with garlands of fresh flowers
On both sides of the steps leading up to St Bartholmews from the main road in Chipping were dressed with posies and lanterns
The posies were fresh, fragrant and beautiful
The Bride's initial "Y" for Yvette was created using Roses, Sweet Williams and Hydrangeas
And "C" for Chris
The seriously "On Point" Groom's Men were first to arrive, in position and ready to meet and greet the guests
Even the back gates were dressed with pyramid Bay trees for the guests parking behind the Church
Fragrant Bay Trees were dressed with sweet scented Stocks and positioned along the route that the bridal party would take
The "Be-Boutonniered" guests started to arrive so many of them wowed and seduced by the exquisite flowers a perfect pre-cursor to the beauty of the Bridal Party
