The Spectacular Wedding Day of Em & Phil at Holmes Mill
Just to say before you embark on this post, be aware it's a seriously lengthy and completely gorgeous visual delight, it's one of those very self indulgent posts I do from time to time, it celebrates the wedding of the utterly adorable Em & Phil.
Besides Emily & Phil's very obvious gorgeousness and the magnificence of their wedding day, this post also celebrates what a hugely important place the lovely Emily has in our families collective hearts.
Emily has been a part of our family since Olivia & Em first met way back at Arnold School in year seven, from that day forward they were inseparable, some might say they were an 'odd couple' Em was super sporty & Liv was super arty, Em is super tall Liv is 'not', Em's brunette & Liv's Blonde (in more ways than one) they are both ridiculously organised and seriously driven and they are 'bestest' friends, they have been there for each other through thick and thin, Emily has had us in hysterics and brought sunshine into our lives (and boy can that girl eat!!!). Needless to say our Liv was a Bridesmaid, a role she absolutely embraced, a huge honour. What a massive joy and privilege it was for Jason & I to be invited to the most important day of Em's life, to share in her and Phil's celebrations, to see how super proud Jo & Andy, Jeff & Denise are, we thank you all so much for such a wonderful, magical and memorable day we enjoyed every second...
I loved handing over this beautiful wedding bouquet made with so much love
I introduced Em to all of the flowers in her bouquet
...the fragrance was heavenly
The Bridesmaid's Bouquets were plentiful...
I showed everyone how to carry their bouquets perfectly
Jason & I headed off to the fabulous Holmes Mill to set the scene for the ceremony
Our candelabras framed the ceremony so perfectly
Huge clouds of Gypsophilia dressed the chairs lining the aisle
Hoops of foliage and Gypsophilia decorated the back of the chairs at the foot of the aisle
The Registrars table was dressed with a luscious table design and a smattering of fresh fragrant rose petals on the floor beneath
Emily's seriously handsome Bride Groom Phil was first to have his boutonniere pinned to his lapel
I pinned on all of the Groom's Men's boutonnieres
We love these two, the fabulous Bren & Tony (Bren's millionaire shortbread is the stuff of legend and she has promised to enter it in this year's FD Bake Off, you'd be mad to miss it)
I love these two too, our Charlie & Jase
That's my girl...
The lovely Lucy, the most perfect Maid of honour, I don't think she could have done more to make sure Em & Phil had the perfect day xxx

Beautiful bouquets designed to compliment the Bridesmaid's gowns, I'd used a collection of Roses, Dahlias, Peonies and Sweet Peas, Albiflora and Eucalyptus the blend of flowers and foliages in soft muted shades was a perfect match to their lovely gowns
