Hot Pink Sweet Peas & Orchids in The English Lake District at Ozzie & Michelle's Intimate Garden Party Wedding Day

Now we've known Michelle and her lovely family for about twenty years Michelle went to and then taught at Arnold School in Blackpool where our two daughters were educated, we were on the PTFA with the lovely Tony & Marilyn, Michelle's parents. We were also lucky enough to create flowers for Ozzie's sister Sally & Thomas' wedding a few years ago and Best Man Martyn's wedding to the lovely Dani
Our relationship is built on solid foundations we are part of their story and they are part of ours  so what a huge honour it was to create the flowers for this very special wedding day!
First stop then the delivery of the Bridal Bouquets, Michelle and her entourage were staying at The Swan in Newby Bridge
The Beautiful Bride and her lovely Mum, Jason showed Michelle how to carry her wedding bouquet and pinned on Marilyn's Corsage

Then off to a very special Church St Paul's in Rusland (Incidentally the grave of Arthur Ransome "Swallows & Amazons" is here)
The gate's of St Paul's with Michelle & Ozzie's initials in flowers creating a joyful welcome for the guests as they arrived
A very handsome collection of gentlemen each wearing a Phalaenopsis Orchid Boutonniere

Ozzie's rather special Groom's Boutonniere of a "Red Lips" Phalaenopsis Orchid with Sweet Pea Florets and the centre of a Serena Gerbera
The scenery is absolutely stunning surrounding the Church

The Floral Initials on the gate was created from Amalia Roses, Gerbera, Gloriosa Rothschild, Pink Hydrangeas, White Sweet William and Astrantia
The front door was dressed with this lovely arch of Hydrangeas, Roses, Sweet Peas, Gloriosa Rothschild and Gerberas, the two Bay Trees framing the doorway were dressed with Stocks and Sweet Peas

Just inside this fabulous old font was home to a magnificent design of Delphiniums, Stocks, Nerines, Gloriosa, Larkspur, Gerbera, Astrantia, Pink Peonies, Orchids and a fabulous collection of fresh foliages
Each of the Windowsills were dressed with a lovely fresh arrangement
On each alternate Pew end a posy of fresh fragrant blooms was attached, we included a White Peony, Hot Pink Stocks, Nerines, Gerberas, Sweet Williams, Hydrangeas and Astrantia
One of two spectacular Church Pedestals, we included magnificent white Delphinium Elatum that towered over the Luscious Pink and White Peonies, Hot Pink Nerines, Dancing Gloriosa Rothschild, Vibrant Gerberas, Elegant Roses, Fragrant Stocks, Fluffy Hydrangeas and the Splendid Plume of Red Lips Phalaenopsis Orchids creating a dynamic focal point
