Epic Posting Alert!!! The Beautiful 'English Summer' Wedding Day of Nicole & Tony at the Iconic Lytham Church, St Cuthbert's & Fabulous Bartle Hall

We have looked after Nicole's lovely family, in a floral sense, for more years than any of us care to remember, Nicole's lovely Mum Hildegard has the most exquisite taste when it comes to fresh flowers and our wonderful Bride Nicole thankfully takes after her Mum, right from the start this was going to be a very special day.
I wanted to start this post with a pic of a small part the 'Kitt's' beautiful garden as this really is where our inspiration began to take shape,  Nicole had also provided us with a splendid mood board together with a thorough and detailed brief, all of which contributed to the spectacular results; A very English Summer Wedding with naturally arranged English Garden flowers and foliages...
Earlier in the week, in the build up to the celebrations we'd provided fresh flowers to dress the family home, all white Roses and foliages in a tall elegant vase looked splendid on the sideboard

 A posy of white Peonies graced the baby grand piano perfectly
 Chloe & I had the joyous task of presenting the Bridal Bouquets ...

 Nicole's Bridal Bouquet was created in a soft pastel palette, blush pinks, soft pale blues and grey tones
I showed the lovely Nicole and her Bridesmaid's how to carry their bouquets perfectly

 The bouquets included a collection of Peonies 'Angel Cheeks' and 'Duchesse De Nemours' with Nigella 'Love in the Mist', fresh Lily of the Valley, Sweet Peas, English Garden Roses Patience, White Ohara & Bombastic with Forget Me Nots and Eucalyptus foliages
The two beautiful Bridesmaid's Katie & Rebecca carried smaller versions of the Bride's Bouquet
 I pinned on the Bride's Dad's Boutonniere
 The Bride's Mum's Handbag Corsage of fresh Lily of the Valley and Eucalyptus Leaves
The Wedding bouquet included a collection of Peonies 'Angel Cheeks' and 'Duchesse De Nemours' with Nigella 'Love in the Mist', fresh Lily of the Valley, Sweet Peas, English Garden Roses Patience, White Ohara & Bombastic with Forget Me Nots and Eucalyptus foliages
 We attached a precious locket to handle of the wedding bouquet

 The Bridesmaid's Bouquets were a smaller simpler version of the Bridal Bouquet in palest blush pink, blue and ivory

 We had two floral crowns of fresh Gypsophilia for the two little Flower Girls

 Chloe and I headed off to the iconic Lytham Church St Cuthbert's to meet up with Jason who had already dressed the magnificent Lytch gate with a luscious and full garland of fresh Hydrangeas, Roses, Peonies, Jasmine and Passion flower
Two fresh luscious Bay trees framed the front door
Inside the Church four of our pedestals framed the space majestically, we had two at the foot of the aisle and two at the head of the aisle
 The Pedestals had a hue urn on top filled to overflowing with a whole host of English country garden flowers and foliages including Roses, Peonies, Hydrangeas, Delphiniums, Larkspur, Stocks, Jasmine and Passionflower
The Passion Flower was opening and looking glorious
The Altar was dressed with two 'L' shaped arrangements framing the cross
Each alternate Pew End was decorated with a posy of Roses, Hydrangeas, Sweet Peas, Peonies and Hydrangeas

We lined up the Boutonnieres ready to pin them on the Bride Groom and his Groom's Men

Nicole's super handsome Bride Groom Tony was first to have his rather special boutonniere to his lapel, we included a white Peony, Lily of the Valley, Forget me Nots, Love in the Mist and Bombastic Rose
The Groom's Boutonniere was finished with navy blue polka dot ribbon to compliment his tie and pocket square

What a surprise this was... The 'T-Tones' Flash Acapella Singers hidden amongst the congregation singing Bruno Mars 'Marry You'

We had the huge pleasure of working with the legendary wedding film maker Tom Harrington from Silk, we can't wait to see his film

The fresh Rose petals were being handed out

Fresh Rose Petal Confetti shower, the softest, gentlest, coolest and most fragrant confetti ever

The celebrations moved on to the wonderful surroundings of Bartle Hall, our Bride & Groom had exclusive use, of the entire hotel, whilst our Bride & Groom were enjoying a little alone time, cardboard cut outs of Tony & Nicole greeted the guests at The Windsor Suite as they arrived back from Church
We'd dressed the staircase with a fabulous garland of fresh Passion Flower trails, Roses, Peonies, Hydrangeas and Gypsophilia 

Posies of fresh flowers dressed all of the occasional and posseur tables around the hotel

The Balmoral Suite at Bartle Hall was dressed for a fabulous wedding breakfast
The tables were dressed with a combination of high and low table designs all on glass columns the tallest were 95cm tall from LSA with huge fresh Flower  & foliage Bombs on top

The top table was overflowing with our 'Hanging Gardens of Babylon' inspired design trails of fresh Jasmine, Passion Flowers, Larkspur, Antirhinnums, Peonies, Roses and Hydrangeas and Freesias

Illuminated Candle orbs were hanging from the tall table designs
The lower table designs were also on LSA Glass Columns and surrounded by floating candles and silver tea light votives
Probably the biggest White Chocolate and Raspberry Cake I have ever seen

Our work here was done, huge thanks to Nicole, Tony and both of their lovely families for choosing Flower Design to create their wedding flowers for them
