The Classical & Uber Elegant White Wedding of Alexandra & Stuart at St Annes Parish Church & Samlesbury Hall

I do love this fabulous family, I had one of the best FD Events Wedding Days ever yesterday, I have had the great pleasure of looking after 'The Fothergill's' flowers for many years, they are quite simply lovely, a joy to work for and best of all they have perfect taste.
So it was my huge pleasure to present Alexandra with her delectable wedding bouquet at the family home in St Annes
Alexandra's Wedding Bouquet included some very precious blooms, although very much out of season, we'd managed to get some white Peonies especially grown for Alexandra's wedding, the grower had said at the beginning of the year that it was possible but couldn't be guaranteed, I couldn't promise Alexandra so it was a huge surprise for her on the day

David our fabulous Bride's Dad was very busy capturing every moment

Berto and I headed next door to St Annes Parish Church, Jason had already been there early to put up the 'Door Arch'
A plethora of Hydrangeas, Roses, Snowberries, Bouvardia and Gypsophilia decorated the archway

Two of our Baroque Candelabras were on moss dressed pedestals at the foot of the aisle
Posies of fresh Roses, Hydrangeas, Snowberries and Gypsophilia dressed each alternate Pew End
At the head of the aisle two majestic candlelit pedestal designs framed the ceremony space perfectly
Our huge 'Secret Garden' Urns were filled to overflowing with seasonal gloriousness, white Delphiniums, Hydrangeas, Antirhinnums, Roses, Astilbe, Senecio, Bouvardia, Snowberry, Gypsophilia surrounded a gigantic pillar candle
