The Delicate & Seriously Elegant Wedding Day of Tina & Ben at The Great Hall at Mains

This is such a stunning wedding, so perfectly planned, beautifully thought out, exquisitely put together with a delicate touch, the lovely Tina and her equally lovely Mum Lucia and I have had a plethora of creative appointments, I am really going to miss them, I was so thrilled with this wedding that it brought a tear to my eye when I saw the lovely Tina walking up the aisle, I hope you'll enjoy it as much as we did dear reader....

Tina's Wedding Bouquet in soft gentle shades of Ivory, Cream and "Palamino" (The shade of the Bridesmaid's Gowns) the handle was bound with lace and finished of with some precious family heirlooms

I included Sweet Peas, Lily of the Valley, Stachys, David Austin's Patience Rose my favourite Peony "Bowl of Cream" with Astrantia, Champagne Grass and lots of other lovely Rose varieties besides
Our Favourite Make Up Artist the fab Sonara Parker we hope she didn't mind us disturbing her work too much to present the bridal bouquets

Jason & I headed off to The Great Hall at Mains to put the finishing touches to the ceremony dressing
On either side of the fireplace two of our fabulous Baroque Candelabras overflowing fresh fragrant blooms, lace and pearls were on pedestal stands framing the ceremony area

The Candelabras oozed fragrance from the fresh Stocks, Peonies, Roses, Sweet Peas and Hydrangeas
At the foot of the aisle two of our glorious floor standing Baroque Candelabras swathed in Lace, Strings of Pearls and a profusion of fragrant blooms
On the floor standing Candelabras I used a wonderful collection of English Garden flowers and foliages including Spirea Blossom, Solomon's Seal, Hydrangeas, Roses, peonies and Sweet Peas with trails of Ivy and Sperengerii
Rose Petals and Hurricane Lamps lined the aisle carpet creating a fragranced walkway for our Bride
