Jennifer & Harry's Wedding, An Explosion of Colour, Happiness & Spring Gloriousness at St Michael's & The Inn at Whitewell

What an absolute joy and privilege it was to get to work with this heavenly family again, we'd been lucky enough to have created flowers for Jennifer's sister Catherine's wedding to Stephen Link a few years ago, so were absolutely delighted when the Bride's Mum the lovely Gill contacted us to arrange the flowers for Jennifer & Harry's big day....
Following appointments, creations of both mood boards and sample designs, a great deal of excitement and expectation the big day had finally arrived, Jason & Ruby had the very best job in the world on Saturday when they presented these multi-hued bouquets of vibrant spring blooms to the bridal party
Jason did the big reveal and showed everyone how to carry their bouquets

 Jennifer's Bridal Bouquet included a wonderful and varied collection of glorious Spring blooms gathered together in a relaxed spontaneous fashion, I included English grown Anemones, White & Blue Forget Me Nots, Peach Blossom, Roses, Peonies, Dicentra Spectabilis, Oncidium Orchids, Jatropha Multifida, Pincushion Scabiosa, Scadoxus, Stocks, Sweet Peas, Lily of the Valley, Ranunculus, Gloriosa, Viburnum Opulus, Chasmanthium Latifolium, Thalaspi, Ribes Sanguinium 'Flowering Currant', Trailing Amaranthus, Alchemilla Mollis, Hyacinths and Sweet Peas and Asparagus Falcatus

We moved our attention over to the delightful Church of St Michael right next door to The Inn at Whitewell, the Lytch Gate was dressed simply with two swags of fresh vibrant blooms and candlelit lanterns
 Fresh Delphiniums, Eremurus, Sunflowers, Achillea, Stocks and a whole host of colourful loveliness
