Magical & Wild Wedding at Hoghton Tower: Candice & John
Candice & John, aah every time I think about these two a smile creeps on my face, I think possibly it's the John bit that makes me smile the most, not that Candice isn't completely gorgeous and utterly smile worthy but, well, John holds a special place in my heart, besides the fact that he is super handsome he's also just so, well, so John! John and I are old friends, he was Best Man at his equally lovely Brother Paul & Rebecca's wedding last year in Lytham (Link). We share a secret from that glorious day John & I, that just makes me smile, alot! I can't share it as that would be betraying a confidence, but lets just say it all "Ended Happily Ever After"
Inspite our chequered history, John together with his beautiful Bride arrived on our doorstep to begin their own floral adventure, a foray into the world of floral wonderment, where rules are made to be broken as long as it fits your own style, John & Candice, have style by the bucket load, it's fab, it's a little quirky, but it's definitely them and I for one loved it!
Wool featured greatly, as did Birds (The feathered variety), a Wildness and a Naturalness that looked very much at home amid the stone and heritage of Hoghton Tower.
The Bidal Bouquets were a wild and mystical gathering of fresh Grasses, Herbs and wild'ish flowers clustered into bouquets bound with Hessian, Jute and Candice's own Wool
Verdi Gris Bird Baths filled with magical flowers grasses on the wondowsills
On the Registrars table a few clusters of Recycled bottles with wools, cotton lace and twine forming collars all filled with hand picked meadow style blooms and grasses in shades of greens, lavenders, deep purples and violet
Scabious, Sweet Peas and Peppermint
On the end chair lining the aisle bespoke and individual posies of fragrant Herbs were attached
The beautiful Bridesmaids were the first of the Bridal party to arrive
They each carried glorious Bouquets of Blackberries, Poppies, Sweet Peas, Grasses and Herbs
The totally fabulous Brides Mum was wearing a wrist Corsage of Thistles
Our utterly fabulous Bride arrived in vintage style
Candice looked so beautiful...

The Great Hall was transformed back into a banqueting hall, the top table was the exact table that a loin of beef was knighted to become "Sir Loin" many moons ago
The Verdi candelabras were dressed with Mushrooms, Slipper Orchids, Mosses, Echiveras, Grasses and fragrant Herbs
I loved their fabulous Cake
