Alice & Sam's Gorgeous Autumnal Wedding at Middleton Lodge Featuring Some Glorious Images from Lawson Photography
First off let me apologise for the tardiness of this posting (There are still more weddings from last Autumn/Winter yet to be caught up I will get to them before these lovely Bride's & Groom's celebrate their first Anniversaries) I have no excuse other than I knew this Blog Posting would take some time to put together and wanted to give it my best attention...
This first beautiful image courtesy of the fab +Peter Lawson & Laura Lawson of Lawson Photography fame captures the Autumnal magic of these Wedding Bouquets, Seed Heads, Rusty Leaves, Mulberry Pinks and Hazy Taupes, Vintage, sepia toned Roses, fragrant Herbs & Berries in all their seasonal magnificence gathered together to create bouquets of "Mellow Fruitfulness"
We'd bound the handles with Ribbon and cotton lace leaving the stems semi naked re-enforcing the hedgerow gathered vibe we wanted to create
Jason did the all important FD Events Wedding Bouquet carrying lesson with these heavenly girls
Back to some exquisite Lawson Photography images.... The lovely Alice, hanging on Jason's every word...
I love this Bridal Bouquet it's a tapestry of texture and colour, soft velvety clarets, glossy almost metalic berries, papery autumn leaves in rich ochres, aubergine and sage green shades, I included Poppy Seed Heads, Eucalyptus Globus, Amnesia, Quicksand & Memory Lane Roses, Wax Flower Blossom, Lily of the Valley, Dill, Monbretia Pods, Albiflora Bruneii, Viburnum Tinnus, Hypericum, Rosemary, Heather, Champagne Grass and Draecaena Compacta all in all a glorious array of seasonal loveliness
In the ceremony Room downstairs, Hurricane Lamps surrounded by a "puddle" of Rose Petals created a Romantic Walk way for our beautiful Bride
Alternate Chairs were decorated with posies of fresh Roses, Hydrangeas, Astrantia, Wax Flower and Champagne Grass
Back to our own images taken by Jason, the Ceremony Room at Middleton Lodge was dressed beautifully with a single Pedestal illuminated by a large pillar candle on one side and the Registrars table on the other again dressed with a candlelit design
A Traditional candlelit design took pride of place on the Registrars Table it was filled with a glorious array of Berries, Roses, Sedum, Quercus, Amaranthus and Hydrangeas
This magnificent Pedestal Design was in a truly "English" Decorative style with Roses, Willow Branches, Sedum, Hydrangeas, Snow Berry and some beautiful Proteas creating a sumptuous focal point by the large pillar candle
Middleton Lodge from the outside has all the grandeur you'd want from a Marriage Ceremony venue
A Vintage style wooden "Bulb Box" filled with Roses, Hydrangeas, Astrantia, Sedum, Wax Flower and Quercus
Fireplace design illuminated by candles in the Rotunda style hall way

The lovely Laura Lawson capturing all of the magic
Huge Congratulations to Alice & Sam from all of the team here at Flower Design Events
I love these next few images from The Lawson's they are just so evocative
My favourite image...
The fabulous Bulb Box became the Seating Plan
A relaxed, Cosy and Romantic atmosphere was created in the dining room with fresh autumnal blooms, berries and foliages together with flickering candle light creating the perfect ambiance
Fresh Posies and candlelit hurricane lanterns decorated the fireplaces
Gloriously rich and decadent Baroque candelabras on the dining tables
The Wedding Cake was topped with a Floral Posy a miniature version of the Bridal Bouquet with two Cake Corsages at the base
Our work here was done, it was time for Jason to return to Blackpool, what a truly magnificent intimate wedding this was, huge thanks to Alice & Sam and their families for asking us to create the flowers for this very important day!!!
