Super Spooky Samlesbury Hall Wedding for Shelly & Duncan

This was such a magical wedding and we really did enjoy creating some mysterious blooms for this super ace couple.
Shelly & Duncan's Mood Board was seriously fabulous and included all of the essential bits we need to create an inspiring set of sample designs. The Mood Board can be in any format though proper card versions are our favourite and the size doesn't matter at all, some of the best ones are quite small, we do however need fabric swatches from the Bridesmaids gowns, images of the Bridal gown and the Grooms suit with tie information, if possible a copy of the stationery, table and chair linen samples, Mum's outfits and anything else that is relevant, it's helpful if there are images of flowers and perhaps designs that the Bride & Groom would like to include.
Shelly's sample wedding bouquet was wild and feathery with her favourite Peacock and Guinea Fowl feathers, deep red Roses, Amnesia & Cool Water Roses, Craspedia, Freesia, Lissianthus, Calla Lilies, Rose Hips, Classic Hydrangeas and foliages
We made Duncan a sample Boutonniere featuring a Feather & Calla Lily
Our suggestion for the top table included coloured bottles, slices of tree, mossed balls and tea lights in coloured glass

At last the big day arrived and Jason headed off to the atmospheric Samlesbury Hall
Our gorgeous Bride Shelly along with her lovely Bridesmaids was getting ready in the Bridal Lodge, Jason showed them all how to carry their bouquets

Shelly's Wedding Bouquet looked glorious

Duncan was first to have his rather special Boutonniere 
The Bride Groom's Boutonniere featured a Calla Lily, Feathers, Berries, Hydrangea and Craspedia
The Groom's Men's Boutonnieres were all individually created, each was entirely unique

Inside the Whittaker Room the scene was set with our candlelit Hurricane Lamps lining the aisle leading up to two of our Enchanted Trees framing the Registrars table

The Enchanted Trees were dressed with Chinese Lanterns, Sunflowers and other fresh blooms and foliages

The Hurricane Lamps were surrounded by Physalis and Rose Petals

The windowsills all around the room were decorated with fresh Gourdes and coloured glass bottles filled with fresh flowers

Outside in the gardens of Samlesbury Hall a collection of colourful fungi were growing adding to the enchantment of the day

The very gorgeous Bridesmaids carried smaller versions of the Bridal Bouquet, it was so lovely to see Victoria again, here's a link to her very lovely Autumn Wedding a couple of years ago

The fabulous Dan Wootton was capturing all of the magic, I can't wait to see his images
Huge Congratulations to Shelly & Duncan from all of the team here at Flower Design

Angela was ready with the fizz...

Inside The Great Hall, the tables were dressed with a truly autumnal collection of designs which helped to create a magical atmosphere
The Top Table looked brilliant, the coloured glass and the coloured blooms really popped off the ivory table cloth

Magnificent Enchanted Tree with candlelit Orbs was the perfect table design

The jugs of juice matched the colours magnificently

Huge thanks to Shelly & Duncan for choosing Flower Design to create their Wedding Flowers for them.
