Vintage Lilacs For Joanna & Will's Wedding Flowers at The Grand Hotel St Annes

What a jolly experience this wedding was, I loved the meetings we had with Joanna & Will and I double loved the appointments we did with Joanna and her gorgeous sister and sublime Mum.

 So this was the thing our beautiful a Bride and her handsome Groom were getting married in Stoke    and then the wedding breakfast was to be at the fabulous The Grand Hotel in St Annes

Logistically we needed a plan that would work out, not only artistically but also in budget, so with a little help from some friends the problem was solved, Joanna & Will's lovely photographer Christian Allen and his lovely wife Rhona agreed to meet me at the crack of dawn to collect the Bridal Bouquets and Boutonnieres and deliver them to Stoke for us.

The evening before the big day our beautiful Beautiful Bride, Mum and Bridesmaid came over to FD Events to see the Bridal Bouquets, Corsages and Boutonnieres,  to give them the OK as our usual presentation couldn't happen in the usual way on the wedding day.

Joanna's Wedding Bouquet was just lovely a rich vintage, antique collection of English Garden blooms including Peonies, Phlox, Sweet Peas, Astrantia, Salvia, Peppermint, Nigella, fresh Lily of the Valley, Senecio and a rich and varied collection of Roses including Cool Water, Memory Lane, Amnesia, Classic Hydrangeas, Senecio, Thalaspi and Chasmanthium Latifiolia
The Bridal Bouquet handles was left semi naked and was bound with hessian then covered over with lace and clasped with the Bride's own brooch

The Bridesmaid's Bouquets were created as smaller versions of the Bridal Bouquet but with ivory being more predominant
We met up with the Bridal Party when they arrived back at The Grand after the wedding, the Bridesmaids looked so beautiful and their bouquets toned with and complimented their lavender gowns so perfectly
The Bridesmaids were wearing fresh flowers in their hair
Our Bride & Groom looked fabulous

Huge Congratulations to the super lovely Joanna & Will from all of the team here at Flower Design Events

Some of the tables were decorated with a collection of vessels, jars and jugs filled with fresh flowers and succulents
