Blackpool Tower Wedding Day for Circus Performers Ashleigh & Joel in Glorious Technicolour!!!
Where to start with this magnificent and wonderful wedding day??... Once upon a time there was a handsome Prince Joel and he fell in with the most beautiful girl Ashleigh and they ran away together and joined the Circus, then they got married (yesterday) and lived happily ever after, it was a fairy tale of Disney proportions!!!xxxx
Our plans began a full year ago when Ashleigh, Joel and Ashleigh's wonderful Mum Su came down to FD Events, our Bride and Groom have the busiest schedule so wedding planning was done in bursts of super human effort pulling this magical day together in probably less than a month all told. We'd made Ashleigh's Mum's wedding flowers and Auntie Nicola's wedding flowers too, we know them really well and love the whole family.
It was a huge pleasure to meet up with them all again, to save them some time we suggested some great wedding professionals for them to hire, which meant we were super excited to be working alongside our friends yesterday, it really is a wonderful thing knowing everyone in the team has the same objective to provide the very best wedding day possible for Ashleigh & Joel and it most certainly was the best of wedding days!!!!xxxx
So we got to work with the best, the absolutely fabulous James Jebson Photography, Ashleigh and the girls were getting ready with one of our best friends Claire Smith over at the award winning boutique B&B Number One St Lukes, The brilliant team from Nefarious were doing the most beautiful hair, Shivone made the lovely faces even lovelier, Lisa Marie Cakes created the magical fairy castle cake, Paul Rowley, Ben Glover and the Rowley's Catering Team were looking after the food, Six15 Events were all over the entertainment, the gowns were from Dan Kerr Bridal, Danny Hickes & Lucy Hodge did a superb job for the Blackpool Tower Events Team to say it ran like clockwork would be an understatement.
So Ashleigh & Joel's fabulously colourful mood board, this helped us enormously, we utilised all of the unique elements on the mood board all of them so important to our Bride & Groom, from the Beauty & the Beast Rose and glass cloche, to bottles of Jack Daniels, from the Big Top to Northern Soul singles, Golden Candelabras, Sunflowers & Gerberas, we managed it all with aplomb!!!
The next meeting was when they got to see their sample creations, Ashleigh loved her brightly coloured wedding bouquet especially as it included every single one of her most favourite flowers in glorious technicolour Gerberas, Sunflowers, Roses, Ranunculus, Tulips, Shamrock to name but a few
Joel wasn't going to wear a boutonniere but he was bowled over by his sample design and finally decided on a Cherry Brandy Rose
This table design suggestion had it all, the records, the Jack Daniels and The Beauty & The Beast Red Rose
A Golden Candelabra dressed with fresh flowers and a suggestion to utilise the bridesmaids bouquets after the ceremony there were over 20 tables planned for the wedding breakfast so it was a sensible idea to make the most of these lovely bouquets
The fabulous Cherry Brandy Roses
In the studio our Shirl, Vicky, Claire & Chloe got busy creating floral candelabras
Bright and early yesterday we headed off to Number One St Lukes, where the bridal party were all getting ready, Jason & Chloe presented the Bouquets and showed everyone how to carry their bouquets perfectly
The stunningly beautiful Ashleigh was delighted with her wedding bouquet (she couldn't be parted from it all day!!xx)
Off to the iconic Blackpool Tower to set up for the ceremony in the world famous The Tower Ball Room
The colours of the flowers looked so perfect in the space
Before the flowers are placed, but still breathtaking
We lined the steps with our Candelabras, they looked like dancers
Is there anywhere in the North West (possibly in the world ever, we are very proud of it!!!) quite as magnificent as Blackpool Tower Ballroom
The Bride Groom's lovely Mum Gail was first to have her wrist corsage put on, it matched her blue ensemble perfectly
