The Super Splendid Wedding Day of Jennifer & Tristan at St Peter's Church in Finsthwaite & Silverholme Manor Graythwaite
This was always going to be a fabulously styled affair, our wonderful Bride & Groom have spectacular taste and are just so cool, they were fortunate enough to have the brilliant Bride Groom's Sister Sophie's artistic help and guidance too, their collaboration created exciting and dynamic colour and texture choices which were great fun to work with and created breathtaking results.
I was sadly over ruled in my desire to attend this wedding not least because when we met up with our Bride & Groom at the Church & Silverholme way back in February Jason loved them and thought the venues were ace he put his name on it there and then, he also has a secret passion for the Groom's Mum's cakes which are delicious and if all that wasn't enough a huge number of Jason's favourite people were also going to be there too.
So Jason & Rebecca headed up to the Lakes at the crack of dawn, Jason presented our beautiful Bride and her four fabulous Bridesmaids with their Bridal Bouquets, he showed them how to carry them
Jen looked so beautiful even in her dressing gown
I loved making this Bridal Bouquet, it was just so seasonal, it's funny how quickly we seem to be moving into Autumn, I included the seed heads of Poppies, Cardifolium Leucaspernum Nutans, Thalaspi, Oak Leaves, Dahlias, Love in the Mist Nigella, Succulents, Dahlias, Delphiniums, Cornflowers, Helenium, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Pepperminta nd Eucalyptus
The scenery really is glorious up there
My lovely hubby was up the ladders at St Peter's Finsthwaite dressing the Lytch Gate
On either side huge bundles of fresh Eremurus, Delphiniums. Dahlias, Helenium, Craspedia, Monte Casino, Helenium, Alchemilla Mollis, Quercus, Tana and Cardifolium Leucaspernum were tied to the gate
The Lytch gate design was completed with some candlelit lanterns which just helped to keep the bugs away

A random collection of bottles and jars, pumpkins and books dressed the font
Rebecca lined up all of the boutonnieres ready to pin them on to the Bride Groom and the all important guests as they arrived. Each boutonniere was entirely unique created using the same flower palette as the Bridal Bouquets, we'd bound them all with natural jute to suit the design perfectly.

Beautiful Bridesmaid's Bouquets
The festivities moved on the fabulous surroundings of Silverholme Manor on the Graythwaite Estate where the wedding was to be celebrated in this fabulous marquee, the catering was provided by the great folks from Karen Rhodes Catering
The tables were all dressed with chevron runners and collections of fresh flower posies all served up in individually dressed vessels, we used Pumpkins, seed trays and stacks of books to create texture and variations in height, Sophie's tea lights, table numbers, confetti, napkin dressings and mini bunting completed the tables magnificently
We loved all of the details created by our Bridal couple and their families, personal designs are always the best.
Sophie had dressed the ceiling with helium balloons in shades of blue and red
We provided empty vases for the Bride & Bridesmaids to place their bouquets in
We kept the posies to all one variety of flower
Beautiful Bridal Bouquet in Blues, Oranges, Yellow and mustard shades
We absolutely loved this cake
The swags off the Lytch Gate looked equally fabulous tied toe the poles in the marquee
Our work here was done it was time for Rebecca & Jase to head for home, many thanks to the fabulous Thompson's and Peter's families we loved working with you all!!!xxxx
