Beautiful Winter Wedding Day at Singleton Lodge for Amanda & Peter
January is such a tricky month for fresh wedding flowers but, if like Amanda & Peter you're thrilled to embrace the glorious array of new Spring flowers it's an absolute joy.
This wedding was precisely that an absolute joy to work on, our Bride & Groom (& Bride's Mum Netta who is without doubt a bonefide legend) were an absolute joy to work with, the fabulous venue Singleton Lodge a total joy to work at, all in all an utterly joyous day was had by all!!!
So Amanda & Peter had prepared this wonderful Mood Board for us, it included lots of 'Floral Afternoon Tea' inspiration, lots of blue, a smattering of Scottish Tartan & Thistles and plenty of love!
We made Amanda a sample wedding bouquet for her to try out a good few weeks before the wedding, we included Eryngium Thistles, Anemones, Ranunculus, Hyacinths, Paper Whites, Viburnum Tinus Berries, Eucalyptus, Roses, Rosemary, Ivy, Hydrangeas and Gypsophilia
We also made them some sample table designs all with a Vintage and Afternoon Tea theme

At last the big day arrived and what a glorious day it was, blue skies and Singleton Lodge looking resplendent in the sunshine, you really couldn't ask for more, the perfect January day.
The Alpacas were looking pretty happy too xx
Chloe & Claire presented the beautiful blue and ivory Bridal Bouquets to our fabulous Bride and her Bridesmaid they included Forget Me Nots, blue Eryngium Thistles, Anemones, Ranunculus, Hyacinths, Paper Whites, Viburnum Tinus Berries, Eucalyptus, Roses, Rosemary, Ivy, Hydrangeas and Gypsophilia

Huge Congratulations to Amanda & Peter from all of the team here at Flower Design Events
How Blissful !!!
Whilst our Bride & Groom and their guests enjoyed some celebratory fizz, the Singleton Lodge & Flower Design teams joined forces to transform the ceremony room into a magnificent Banqueting Hall
Each table was dressed with a unique bespoke design created using vintage crockery and crystal vessels all filled with fresh Spring flowers
