Seriously Sensational Summer Wedding For Rachel & Alex Featuring Some Stunning Images From Liam Crawley
This is one of my all time favourite weddings, I love the colour it's so sensational, this wedding was in the most vibrant shades, I love people and these folks were amazing, I love late summer sunshine, I love wheat fields and Marquees, I love beautifully kept and much loved country Churches, Beautiful Brides, Handsome Grooms and this wedding day had it all in bucket loads, but, and this is the thing, because you don't always get this, they had an amazing photographer the uber brilliant and talented Liam Crawley of CG Weddings by The Crawley's fame who has so generously provided many of the images throughout this posting, (I will, though I suspect it isn't necessary point out to you which images are his) our fabulous Ruby has taken all of the rest which are pretty good for a florist!!!!
Ruby presented the Bridal Bouquets and Bridal Bouquet carrying lesson, these gorgeous girls were absolute naturals
The Bridal bouquets were created in a myriad of shades, I used meadow, hedgerow and country garden blooms, I wanted the bouquets to have a hand gathered vibe...
The little Flower Girl had her Teddy Bear dressed with fresh flowers
The following few images are by Liam...
A Palette of fresh hair flowers, each one individually wired and taped ready to be placed in the Bridesmaids hair "Do's"
Each Bridesmaid had a unique combination of flowers in her hair
A beautiful Boutonniere of shell pink roses
The Bridal Bouquet's were finished off with a semi naked lace and jute handle
The Bridesmaid's Bouquets were vibrant and lush each one was different and unique
Back to our Ruby's images...
St Hilda's Church in Bilsborrow, one of the most beautiful and well kept Churches, we'd dressed the arch
The Church Gate was dressed with an exquisite floral heart
Our Mike was busy lighting all of the candles in the lanterns lining the aisle
We'd been to visit this Church a couple of weeks earlier so I'd been lucky enough to see the fabulous flower beds surrounding and leading up to the Church as a consequence we'd chosen flowers and colours to match creating a truly organic look
This is a full and voluptuous Church Door Arch, we included Hydrangeas, Roses, Peonies, Alliums, Sweet Peas, Craspedia and trailing Amaranthus
Some more amazing images from Liam Crawley....
Ruby & Mike pinned on all of the Boutonnieres
Inside The Church we'd dressed with windowsills and ledges with jam jars filled with posies of fresh flowers in a all shapes and sizes
The Pew ends had gorgeous little Jam jars filled with fresh fragrant flowers and herbs hanging from ribbons
Back to our pictures....
