The Final Cut of Lucinda & Phill's Amazing Epic Vintage Wedding Day at St Chad's & The Villa at Wrea Green
I don't know where to begin with the tale of this eclectic Wedding Day, Lucinda is just so amazing, when we first met her, she had all the balls in the air so to speak, career, babies and a wedding to plan, she made Rachael and I feel inadequate, we looked at her first mood board and advised her to make it a little more focused, it wasn't until we saw versions 2 and 3 we realised that this was in fact focused it was exactly the look Lucinda wanted.
The wildest most random and beautiful collection of ideas, with soft subtle, vintage shades for the Bridal Bouquets, and vivid colour creeping in to Phill's Boutonniere, crescendoing with a marquee to make your toes curl, your senses assaulted with vibrancy and detail, so much to take in, so well thought out and so, well so Lucinda & Phill!!!!
Huge thanks to our lovely friend and stupendous Photographer Anurag from Shutterleaf Photography, a more perfect photographer for Lucinda & Phill I couldn't imagine!!! These first few images are of course Anurag's and throughout the posting there are pockets of his lovely images that help me to tell this very special Wedding story
Lucinda's wedding Bouquet included some of her favourite David Austin Roses Miranda, alongside Memory Lane, Amnesia & Metalina Roses, with "Love in the Mist", Brodea, Sweet Peas, Lily of the Valley, Hydrangeas, Astilbe, Eryngium Thistles, Pepper Mint, Oregano, Dill, Rosemary and Thalaspi completing this glorious wedding bouquet
Lucinda's lovely Dad's Boutonniere of fresh Rosemary, Lily of the Valley, Oregano, Alchemilla Mollis and a Memory Lane Rose
The Bridesmaid's Bouquets were truly delicious and included a heavenly collection of Herbs and Roses, with Astilbe and Love in The Mist
I love this image from Anurag, the two Flower Girl's Pomanders one with a lace handle the other with a pearl handle
Lucinda's heavenly gown
These next few images are of course our own haphazard efforts, I'm quite sure you didn't need reminding
Lucinda's wedding Bouquet was so beautifully fragranced
The large "Floppy" bow was finished off with an embroidered button
The Flower Girl's Head dresses looked so perfect
The Pomanders really were the perfect choice for these gorgeous little girls
Back to Anurag's splendid images
We headed off to St Chad's where this floral heart hung on the gate looking very graceful
Phil's vibrant Boutonniere of a sprig of Lily of the Valley, an Avalanche Rose, with Achillea, Alchemilla Mollis and Chelone
The Ushers Boutonnieres were a bit on the wild side with a variety of Roses, and Herbs tied together to create a slightly less formal vibe!!
Phil is so handsome and his Boutonniere was perfect
