All The Magic of Christmas for James & Claire's Festive Wedding at Hoghton Tower

I loved this Christmas Wedding, Hoghton Tower is such a splendid venue, my heart always flutters when we drive through gates and see the tower in all it's majesty on top of the hill, knowing the fires will be roaring and a warm welcome awaits!!!
Our Bride & Groom James & Claire were an absolute joy to work with, they wanted traditional but with a bit of a twist, we concocted some fabulous colour blends for them that worked incredibly well with their deep violet Bridesmaid's gowns.
It really was all so magical, rich seasonal blooms with Christmas Berries and foliages not only looked wonderful but filled the air with the fragrance of "Mulled Wine" fresh Spruces, Rosemary, Bundles of Cinnamon sticks, fresh Roses and lots more loveliness besides were all used to create a beautiful ceremony space in this historic space. 
On the Registrars table a candlelit swag took centre stage with two glorious candelabras framing the table
At the other end of the aisle the historic table where the piece of beef was knighted and became "Sir Loin" many, many years before was dressed with a sumptuous candlelit designs
 Hurricane lamps surrounded by Christmas wreaths of Hydrangeas, Roses, Berries, Fir Cones and seasonal foliages and herbs, the heat from the candles helped to circulate the fragrances

 We'd lined up all of the Corsages and Boutonnieres on the windowsills ready to pin them on to the very special guests as they arrived
