Classically Elegant Spring Wedding at St Cuthbert's Church & Bartle Hall; Charlotte & Chris

Every Wedding we do, we feel so privileged to be involved, however when we get the opportunity to create flowers for someone very special to us our feelings are off the scale. Yesterday we had the huge honour of seeing our former "Saturday Girl" the truly beautiful Charlotte marry the love of her life Chris at St Cuthbert's. I make no excuses for the ridiculous length of todays posting I just couldn't edit it down there was quite simply a plethora of beauteousness.....
Charlotte came to work with us when she was still at school she has always been beautiful, always a joy and pleasure to work with, she is however famous at FD Events for creating the revolutionary drink "Tea Coffee" perfumed with lemon having washed out the kettle with Stardrops, who would have believed back then that she would become the super confident and mega capable entrepreneur (Charlotte is the brilliant Stationery designer Charlotte Designs) and all round great girl she is today, we are all so very proud of her many achievements not least choosing Chris to be her husband.

The celebrations moved to the fabulously elegant surroundings of Bartle Hall where a warm welcome awaited the guests
So beautiful


The elegance continued with Maxine Molin Rose providing the heavenly harp music
Charlotte had created her own beautiful Seating Plan (Charlotte Designs)
Inside the Windsor Suite at Bartle Hall
Our beautiful Crystal Candlesticks and Cake stands topped with a myriad of the most exquisite and sweet scented English garden blooms

Around the base of the tall crystal candlesticks posies of fresh flowers and floating candles dressed the table tops so prettily
The Top table was probably one of the longest I've ever seen, we'd dressed it with a collection of vintage crystal vessels each one filled with posies of fresh fragrant blooms and candlesticks and floating candles

The stationery by Charlotte Designs was simply sublime














Our fabulous Crystal Cake stands topped with bosoms of Peonies, Roses, Sweet Peas, Orchids, Astilbe and Tuberosa




There were more than a few tears from all of us when Charlotte and Chris came into the room and saw the magical setting for the very first time

Stunning and delicious Wedding Cake created by the lovely folks at Thornton Cake Company



There was just so much to take in...



The Fireplaces were dressed with lanterns and posies
The table names had a Sherlock Holmes connection our Groom after all is a Holmes












The Chairs and Table dressings were provided by the wonderful people at Creative Cover Hire


Pastel Anemones



The Bartle Hall Canapes looked delicious

Our work here was done it was time to head for home for a quick change before we headed back for the party where the amazing Paul Guard blew us all away with his spectacular set...
