Peonies & English Garden Roses for Caroline & Tom's Hoghton Tower Wedding Day

As with all FD Weddings our journey with Caroline and Tom began over a year ago with a 'getting to know each other' meeting, their plans for a magnificent family filled wedding day over at St Mary & St John Southworth Church and the super historic Hoghton Tower were discussed at length and plans were made for them to come back into FD HQ with their informative mood board.
The Mood Board appointment is essential, learning about our Bride & Groom's vision for their day is imperative, discovering their ideas, colour palette, favourite flowers, Bridal gown, Bridesmaids and Groom's attire information is all presented on an A1 board, details like Mum's outfit's, stationery, music and chair cover information is just so helpful.
Caroline & Tom's board was superb and inspired us to create some beautiful designs for them to see at their 'Sample appointment' a few weeks before their wedding day.

We'd made a gorgeous sample wedding bouquet for Caroline it complimented her gown perfectly, we'd included fresh Lily of the Valley, English Garden Roses Keira and White O'Hara along side some beautiful Tea Rose and Floribunda Roses, sweet scented Lily of the Valley, Misty Sweet Peas and Pink Peonies in soft vintage shades of Rose Pink, Mushroom and mink shades

Inside this 'hidden gem' of a Church we arranged two beautiful Baroque Candelabras on pedestal stands to frame the altar

The brilliant photographer on the day was the very lovely Daniel Murrientes with his second camera man Rob they were capturing all of the magic, I can't wait to see their images
