Laura & Matthew's Seriously Stylish 'Pullman Wedding' at The Merewood

This is such a beautiful wedding, a huge amount of care and work by our Bride & Groom went in to the plans for this beautiful wedding day at the fabulous Merewood Country House Hotel where Lorna heads up a brilliantly talented banqueting team, huge thanks to her for arranging the safe return of a few of our props that were misplaced on the night. 
Our gorgeous Bride the lovely Laura, drives trains for a living which is pretty remarkable, she is also a truly inspirational and ace person, I have really enjoyed getting to know her and helping her with the plans for this seriously stylish day, so following a couple of meetings where ideas for an Art Deco styled look were discussed we invited Laura back in to see her sample Bridal designs...
The sample Bridal Bouquet with White Anemones with black centres, Roses in vintage tones including Amnesia, Quicksand & Mentha, White Peonies, White Hydrangeas, Scabious seed heads, Albiflora, White Astilbe, Eucalyptus, Viburnum Opulus, Chasmanthium Latifolium, Thalaspi, Umbrella Fern, the real bouquet was bound with a plain ivory satin handle finished with Laura's own vintage buttons, but you'll see that lower down, one request from our Bride was to ensure that we didn't have 'kissing Anemones' they all had to be kept separate

'The Pullman Top Table Design' A collection of 1920's styled vintage vessels with glass cloches, crystal decanters, coffee sets, books, music paper, lace doilies and Laura's fabulous origami flowers with illumination provided by Crystal candlesticks 

 Our classical Baroque Candelabra was also made up as a sample design
 We created a lovely Silver fruit bowl filled with fresh flowers for Laura's perusal
At last the big day arrived
Ruby & Berto were the team on the day looking after the flowers (I was gutted not to be able to be there to see the culmination of the planning)

Ruby presented our  Bride and Bridesmaids with their Bouquets and showed them how to carry them
Downstairs in the elegant surroundings of The Merewood Country House Hotel every area was dressed uniquely
Our lovely Silver Fruit Bowl sat on one of the marble side tables, it was filled with Peonies, Roses Solomons Seal, Anemones, Alliums and Sweet Peas

All of the details were gloriously authentic and looked quite simply perfect in situ'
...and fresh flowers featured in each space
In the ceremony room our Baroque Candelabras on pedestal stands framed the foot of the aisle beautifully with two more framing the Registrars table at the head of the aisle, clusters of candlelit Hurricane lamps sat in puddles of fresh fragrant Rose petals were in between
Our Baroque Candelabras were dressed with Roses, Peonies 'Bowl of Cream' Dancing Grasses, Viburnum Opulus, Alliums, Solomons Seal and Champagne Grass

All of the windowsills and occasional tables were dressed with our designs
Crystal Decanters and drinking glasses all filled with fresh fragrant Blooms including Tuberosa, Peonies,Alliums, Roses White O'Hara & Metalina
Martini Glasses and Champagne Saucers were also filled with lovely Spring Blooms

I loved these super duper flags  created by our fab Bride, these would be handed to guests to wave as the Bride & Groom leave
We had lots of lovely Wrist Corsages for the important lady guests to wear

The Bride Groom's Boutonniere featured a Quicksand Rose with an Anemone, Astrantia, Umbrella Fern, Champagne Grass and Stachys, the design was bound with jute and finished with a vintage button

Matthew, Laura's super handsome Bride Groom (no wonder she never brought him in to FD HQ we would all have been in bits!!!xxx)
Matthew's Boutonniere looked perfect on his lapel

Once all of the guests were settled in the ceremony room the Bridal party made there way down the elegant staircase and very beautiful they all looked too

Our beautiful Bride looked truly breathtaking

The fabulous Tom Harrington of Silk Wedding Films was recording all of the magic

Huge and Ginormous Congratulations to Laura & Matthew from all of the team here at Flower Design

The Brilliant Adam Johnson of ARJ Photography was the brilliant Photographer on the day and we can't wait to see his & Tom's work

Our Bride & Groom left to tune of 'Love Train' whilst the guest waved their flags 

Just too gorgeous for words!!!!xxxxx
Whilst our Bride & Groom enjoyed some celebratory drinks a transformation was taking place ready for the 'Wedding Breakfast',  we loved the Seating Plan, the tables were named after famous stations
A combination of high and low table designs created texture and rhythm to the room
