'...Something Blue...' For Victoria & Karl's Fabulous Wedding at Bartle Hall
Another one of those mega posts I'm afraid but I'm not sorry, I have really enjoyed re-visiting this beautiful wedding day, brimming over as it was with tons of love and wonderful flowers. Victoria & Karl enjoyed what can only be described as the perfect day. They had planned it, they had worked hard on the details, they'd been so thoughtful and considerate throughout, I for one thoroughly enjoyed our meetings, they always seemed to be in the evening and we chatted a lot so when the day arrived we all knew each other really well and I knew for sure the flowers we'd made were just right for them!!!...
Following our first meeting we met up again to go through their mood board, it was, compared to some boards simple, but without doubt it was perfectly formed and included all of the essential details that help us create spectacular wedding flowers.
There was a great collection of wedding professionals on board too, we were looking forward to working with Nichola Morton Photography, there was a gorgeous gown from Creation Weddings in Wigan by Ronald Joyce, Hair was being done by Nicola from Sam Gateley, Make up was by our great friend Sonara Parker and there was to be a lovely Cake by Kelly Cakes
We got together again to present a set of sample bridal designs for the two of them to see and try out
We'd made table centres too
At last the big day arrived and we were over at the fabulous Bartle Hall bright and early with a van filled with beautiful blue flowers
We had a box of exquisite Bridal Bouquets ready to present to Victoria and her Bridesmaids
I presented the bridal bouquets in The Clifton Suite at Bartle where the bridal party were all getting ready
I showed our Bride and her Bridesmaids how to carry their bouquets perfectly
I loved this naturally blue and ivory wedding bouquet of White Peonies, Roses, Freesia, Love in the Mist, Forget Me Nots and Blue Hydrangeas
Our Beautiful Bride Victoria with Paris & Tia
Amanda was having her hair done by the lovely Nicola from Sam Gatley Bridal Hair
In The Balmoral Suite at Bartle Hall the scene was set for the ceremony with beautifully tall elegant pedestals framing both the foot of the aisle and the head of the aisle
Two of our majestic pedestals topped with fresh pale blue Delphiniums,Hydrangeas, Roses, Dahlias and Stocks stood on either side of the Registrars table, posies of fresh Gypsophilia and Hydrangeas dressed the ledge just behind the table
A candlelit design decorated the Registrars table perfectly
Outside in the courtyard I pinned on all of the boutonnieres and corsages, Victoria's super handsome Bride Groom Karl was wearing a special Boutonniere designed to co-ordinate with his Bride's Bouquet and to fit his lapel.
Karl's Boutonniere featured an Avalanche Rose with Bubbles Rose Buds, Love in the Mist, Freesia and Foliage, we'd bound the stem with navy blue ribbon to match his jacket perfectly.
A small and dainty corsage created for the very petite Kate we'd designed it in blue shades to compliment her blue outfit
Kate's corsage looked perfect
The Groom's Mum's corsage included some of the elements we'd included in her son's boutonniere and then extra blooms to compliment her magenta ensemble
The Groom's Mum Anne looked lovely her corsage complimented her outfit beautifully
We'd made a wrist corsage for the Bride's Mum Lynne
The super elegant Bride's Mum Lynne looked stunning her wrist corsage completed her outfit perfectly
Back in the Bride's Room, Victoria looked absolutely breathtaking, we handed out the bouquets making sure everyone had the right one
The Bridesmaids Bouquets were created as smaller simpler versions of the Brides Bouquet, we'd used Gypsophilia to compliment the tiny white flowers on their dresses
Our Bride's bouquet really was quite perfect with her gown
Amanda's bouquet looked fabulous against her navy blue gown
Father of the Bride Frank was completely blown away when he saw his stunning daughter...
Paris & Tia practised their walk
It was lovely to see our old friend Registrar Malcolm Campbell conducting the ceremony
Huge Congratulations to Victoria & Karl from all of the team here at Flower Design Events
A fresh Rose Petal Confetti shower for our fabulous Bride & Groom, the most perfect way to commence the celebrations
Delicious Bartle Hall Canapes were heading out to the guests in the Orchard
Inside the Balmoral Suite a transformation was taking place, the tables were now dressed with our magnificently tall conical vases topped with floral explosions
The wedding cake made by Kelly Cakes was dressed with some fresh flower garlands we'd created to fit
The following morning we were back early to clear away the stands and vases but we left all of the fresh flowers boxed up outside ready for our Bride & Groom
Massive thanks to Karl & Victoria for choosing Flower Design Events we loved every second of this gorgeous wedding day xxx
