Floral Crowns & Naturally Gathered Hedgerow Flowers For Amanda & Noel's Beautiful Country Wedding at St Michael's & The Inn at Whitewell

This was such a lovely wedding, delicately rustic in shades of nude pinks, Amanda & Noel brought in their beautiful mood board a couple of months ago, inspired by their choices we created a collection of sample designs for them to see.
The sample Bridal Bouquet included a collection of nude Roses Sweet Avalanche, White O'Hara, Bombastic and Silver Lace, with white Peonies, Astilbe, Hydrangeas, Chamomile Daisies, Peppermint, Lily of the Valley, Thalaspi and Astrantia
The sample Boutonniere created for Noel included all of the important elements used in his Bride's bouquet
The sample table design included clusters of fresh flowers in jam jars and jugs
At last the big day arrived and Chloe & I had the great pleasure of presenting our Bride Amanda with her Bridal flowers, she was getting ready in 'The Piggeries' at The Inn at Whitewell and Sophie was doing the make up whilst Mairead was doing hair
The Big reveal went well and our gorgeous Bride was delighted
The Bridal Bouquets looked and smelled heavenly

We handed the Bridesmaids their bouquets
I showed everyone how to carry their bouquets perfectly
The Bridesmaid's carried smaller versions of the Bride's Bouquet

I showed the Bride's Mum Carol how to attach her corsage
The totally fabulous Hair designer Mairead from Wedlock's Bridal Hair Specialist would be attaching Amanda's Headdress

The floral headdress was made up of Keira & Bombastic Roses with Gypsohilia

As wedding and event florists we make a huge number of headdresses, every single one is unique and created exclusively for the person we are making it for.

At St Michael's Church the scene was set with two beautiful swags of fresh flowers decorating the Lytch Gate

The Lytch Gate swags included fresh Stocks, Phlox, Peonies, O'Hara Roses, Hydrangeas and foliages

Leading up the pathway to Church we'd arranged these beautiful posies of fresh fragrant flowers hanging from hooks dressed with ribbon and lace

Fiona the vicar here does a superb service and I always think you'd feel 'very married' if you were lucky enough to have her conducted your marriage service
It was the first time I'd worked with the photographer Dan from Daniel Murrientes Photography he was an absolute pleasure to work with, can't wait to see his images
Alice was playing the organ which she's been doing that here at St Michael's for 71 years, when I was a teenager and came here to do weddings with my Dad I remember seeing her then.
