The Beautiful Wedding Day of Jack & Nicky Pailing at St Cuthbert's Church & The Grand Hotel Lytham St Annes
This was a really special wedding day for a truly special couple, we've known Jack & Nicky and both of their wonderful families for many, many years, it's always a huge pleasure to create flowers for people you know and care about.
The evening before the 'Big Day' both Bride & Groom's family homes were decorated with fresh flowers, setting the scene for a fully floral wedding day.
We've dressed this front door for the Pailing's every Christmas for ever, how lovely it looked with a gloriously floral and summery 'Welcome Ring'
I'd used exquisitely fragranced English Garden Roses Patience & White O'Hara with white Peonies, white Hydrangeas, Dahlias and Waxflower Blossom
Over at the Cole's home a voluptuous 'Floral Heart' graced their front door
A feminine colour palette of soft and romantic pinks and ivories help to create a heavenly 'Floral Heart', I included a heady collection of Garden Roses; Bombastic, Memory Lane, Sweet Avalanche and White O'Hara, Pink & ivory Peonies, Hydrangeas, Sweet Peas and Snowberry
Beautiful corsage of Lily of the Valley, Freesia, Patience and Snowflake Rose Buds created for the Bride's beautiful Mum Linda
The lovely Mairead from Wedlocks Bridal Hair Specialist was busy creating some stunning hair designs
The lovely Gemma was doing the make up when we arrived to present the wedding bouquets
Our Bride and her bridesmaids were gathered for the big reveal...
I absolutely love it when you get a great reaction like this ...
I showed everyone how to carry their wedding bouquets ....
Nicky's Wedding Bouquet was a lovely floral confection of Roses, fresh Oregano, Sweet Peas, Lily of the Valley, Peppermint and Eucalyptus
That Bouquet smelled divine
Ruby, Josie, John & I headed off to St Cuthbert's Church where Jason had already dressed the Lytch Gate
A full and luscious garland of fresh Hydrangeas, Roses, Sweet Peas and foliages looked perfect on both sides of the Lytch Gate
Posies of fresh flowers and Baroque style birdcages decorated the porch area creating a warm welcome for the guests as they arrived
Inside this iconic church two pedestals framed the start of the aisle magnificently
At the head of the aisle two of the most dramatic church pedestal designs stood like two guardian angels looking over the proceedings
Fresh flowers decorated the Altar too
In the porch posies of fresh sweet scented blooms greeted guests
I lined up the boutonnieres and corsages ready to pin them on to the all important guests...
