Nicola & Dave's Magical May Day Wedding at Cartmel Priory & Grange Hotel in Grange Over Sands

We've loved working with this gorgeous family what a joy it's been, and we've all been looking forward to creating some beautiful designs for them.
 I thought it best to start this posting with Nicola & Dave's fabulous Mood Board, on the right a real celebration of family and clues to their history and romance and all of the important 'Jig Saw Puzzle Pieces' of their wedding plans, gown and suit information, stationery, colour and fabric swatches , on the left a great collection of floral inspiration.

We'd created a full set of sample designs for them to see at their sample design appointment...
Dressed jam jars filled with fresh seasonal blooms set on old vintage books
Vintage Birdcages and interesting vessels

Tea Cups and Fairies
Exquisite sample Bridal Bouquet with a collection of vibrant wild style blooms

On the morning the team were in early wiring, binding, making and creating

The Bouquets were packed in tissue

Jason was up at Grange Hotel by 8:30am presenting our beautiful Bride with her Bouquet

The ceremony was at 11am at the beautiful Cartmel Priory

Inside this historic Church we are extremely respectful and dress the Pews and Internal arch with care
Swags of fresh flowers were attached to either side of the arch
A glorious array of Larkspur, Antirhinnum, Roses, Daisies, Sunflowers, Astrantia and Hydrangeas
Posies of Herbs, Peonies, Lavender, Daisies, Craspedia, Sweet Peas, Grasses and a whole host of other lovely blooms dressed the end of each alternate Pew

Jason lined up the boutonnieres ready to pin them on to the all important guests as they arrived

Each Boutonniere was created individually, a unique combination of Blossoms, Herbs, Roses and Sweet Peas, Chamomile, Wax Flower and lots more were bound together in tiny clusters with jute

The Groom's Mum's Blue Wrist Corsage
Dave our super handsome Bride Groom was first to have his Boutonniere pinned in place

Dave's Mum looked fabulous and her wrist corsage matched perfectly
Beautiful Blue Wrist Corsage of Forget Me Nots, Delphinium and '4Good' Roses
The Bridesmaids looked utterly heavenly and carried their bright and beautiful bouquets perfectly

Our Bride looked breathtaking when she arrived at Church
