The Utterly Breathtaking Wedding Day of Cihan & Jennifer at Holy Trinity Bolton Le Sands & The Midland Hotel in Morecambe
We were all so excited about this wedding, we'd met up with the totally fabulous and beautiful Cihan & Jennifer at FD HQ many times, we'd visited both Holy Trinity Church and the spectacular Midland Hotel, we'd planned, we'd designed and we'd decided together on the colours, designs and flowers for this glorious day, I make no apology for the huge number of images in this posting, there were so many fabulous ones I just couldn't edit them down further!!!!
The day began early with the presentation of Bridal Bouquets to our beautiful Bride and her Bridesmaids at the amazing Art Deco venue The Midland Hotel in Morecambe
I was a little nervous, the design had been changed a few times since the trial bouquet...
The Big Reveal...
The Bridal Bouquet was a garden gathered confection of Lily of the Valley, fragrant Herbs, English Garden Roses, Silver grey foliages and Sweet Peas in Raspberry, Pale Pink and Ivory shades
The Bridesmaids Bouquets were in palest shell pinks, pearl greys and Ivory

Jason, Josie and I headed off to Bolton Le Sands to dress Holy Trinity Church
The pathway was lined with Candlelit lanterns & Rose Petals
Posies of fresh flowers were hanging on hooks along the path leading to the church door
A natural style garland of mosses and fresh flowers surrounded the Church door beautifully
The Vintage Bike dressed with fresh shell pink Hydrangeas and Astilbe
The Porch was decorated with candle lit votives, Bird Cages, Mosses, Skeleton Leaves, Branches and Posies of garden gathered blooms
Inside this beautiful Church a fabulous Pedestal design welcomed guests as they arrived
The Lectern was dressed with a swag of fresh Roses and Peonies
On the Altar two beautifully simple designs of sweet scented Stocks, Roses and Peonies
Posies in Jam Jars of Sweet Peas, Astilbe, English Garden Roses with Peonies and Hydrangeas hung from the ends of the Pews
Next to the Pulpit another huge Pedestal Design Dominated by Delphiniums and Digitalis with Hydrangeas, Stocks, Peonies, English Garden Roses and fragrant Tuberosa
The exqusitely beautiful Keira Rose from the David Austin Nursery took centre stage in the Pedestals
There was a lovely Boutonniere for us to present to each guest as they arrived at Church
We'd made our Groom two Boutonnieres so he could choose the one he liked the best, both using David Austin English Garden Roses, the raspberry Darcey Rose was in one with Lily of the Valley and Oregano and the other a Keira Rose again with Lily of the Valley, Sweet Peas and Hydrangea Florets both of the Boutonnieres were finished with Eucalyptus
The Guest's Boutonnieres were in a variety shades and shapes and sizes, something for everyone to tone with a plethora of ensembles
Beautiful Wrist Corsages for some rather special guests and Flower Girls
Our super handsome Bride Groom Cihan selected the Darcey Rose Boutonniere
Darcey has an almost luminous quality it's just so vibrant and luscious
All of the Groom's Men had beautiful David Austin Keira (a pale cream pink Rose with hundreds of petals) Rose Boutonnieres
Cihan's Groom's Men were all so handsome their Rose Boutonnieres looked perfect in their buttonholes
