The Beautiful White Hart Wedding Day of Julie & Steven
What a day this was, we'd been excited about creating vibrant and glorious flowers for Julie & Steven for months, we knew this wedding was going to be truly magical, besides the obvious fact of their combined gorgeousness, they had the best families some seriously fabulous friends and a first class set of wedding professionals booked in.
We were looking forward to working at The White Hart again and with the legendary Aggie McGuinness such a brilliant photographer we haven't worked with her for a couple of years since she moved over to Yorkshire but it was great to see her again, for the second time in two weeks we were with the great folks from Lancashire Chair Covers and The Dotted Crotchetts, what an absolute joy it was to work with the seriously talented Nicola Nicholls from The Pretty Sugar Cake Company, Cheshire Venue & Lighting Company provided the light up letters, the team from Viva La Weddings were filming all of the magic, the stunning make up was by Tally from Pro Make Up Academy, Julie's exquisite Bridal gown was from Adele Haworth-Winstanley Bride and the lovely Paul Hand was still entertaining everyone when Jason & I arrived for the 'Clear Down' at 1am.
We'd first met up with them following a recommendation from one of our Bride's Mum's who's daughter had celebrated her wedding at The White Hart which is a great start! following that initial meeting we planned to meet up again with their mood board and then again for this gorgeous couple to see a set of sample designs we'd prepared just for them...
Julie wanted to carry a trailing wedding bouquet so we made her one to try out at our sample appointment
We'd made a small section of the top table design as a sample for them to see
We made Steven a sample Boutonniere featuring a Quicksand Rose with rolled Darcey Petals, Eryngium and Sweet Peas
At long last the big day had finally arrived our Jason & Olivia had the huge pleasure of presenting the Bridal bouquets
The three little Flower Girls had Pomanders made of fresh Hydrangeas and Gypsophilia
The elegantly cascading wedding bouquet of sweet scented Jasmine, Sweet Peas, English Garden Roses 'Darcey', Peonies, Sweet Peas, fresh Peppermint, Tea Roses "Quicksand' & 'Sweet Avalanche' and hot pink Floribunda Roses, Waxflower Blossom and Spirea in shades of nude, hot pink and ivory
Jason introduced all of the fresh flowers in the bouquet to our beautiful Bride he showed her how to carry it perfectly
Inside the ceremony room at The White Hart we pinned on The Bride Groom Steve's Boutonniere and Best Boy Tom's miniature version
Olivia & Jason pinned on all the Boutonnieres on Steve's Groom's Men, ensuring each one was pinned on in the perfect position
The Groom's super proud parents Brenda & John
Inside the Ceremony Room we'd arranged pedestal designs to frame the ceremony space and a beautiful fresh flower swag decorated the Registrars table
More Pedestal designs were placed lower down the aisle
Fresh Pale Pink Hydrangeas dressed the Chairs lining the aisle
At the back of the Room two more pedestals marked the start of the aisle and another floral swag dressed the bar
