Epic Posting of Cheryl & Anthony's Autumn Wedding Flowers at Hyde Bank Farm
I make no apology for the ludicrous quantity of flower images I have included in this post, our designs were very typically autumnal, tons of texture, a plethora of naturally seasonal materials helped us to create a gorgeous variety of creations, we really did have the very best of times making these spectacular designs.
Thankfully Cheryl & Anthony, who were an absolute joy to work with and made our endeavours an absolute pleasure, they gave us the most wonderful brief to work to: To create a magical autumn woodland of romantic and unique designs in an unusual collection of natural and seasonal materials.
They had booked a stellar team of great wedding professionals...

We'd never been to Hyde Bank Farm in Stockport so a site visit was planned in July
We took a few snaps and endeavoured to visualise the spaces and views with a November eye
The ceremony room
The obligatory selfie with Jason, Renske, Cheryl & Leah
Our next appointment was to showcase our suggestions and ideas, Cheryl had provided us with a small folder filled to bursting with mood board ideas, a different format for us but equally as effective and inspiring as a traditional mood board.
All of our creations were made with autumnal flowers, berries and foliages.
Candles and glass domes filled with fairy lights were planned
The sample bridal bouquet made just for Cheryl
Soft romantic shades with fresh autumn berries and foliages
Beautiful Succulents and fresh fragrant herbs
The sample Groom's Boutonniere for Anthony
We'd used Rolled Rose Petals, Succulents, contorted Willow, Astrantia and Berries in the Groom's sample boutonniere
The stem of the boutonniere was bound with jute string
At last the big day arrived, we were up bright and early and the bouquets were boxed up at FD HQ
Jason & I headed off to Magpie Cottages in Marple to deliver the Bridal Bouquets
Our lovely Bride was absolutely delighted with her bouquet
I showed all of the Bridesmaids how to carry their bouquets perfectly
The wedding venue Hyde Bank Farm looked just as lovely in November as it had back in July
In the entrance area we'd dressed the low bar tables with lanterns and fresh fragrant Rose Petals, all of the guests would wait here ahead of going up to the ceremony room
Cheryl's fabulous Bride Groom Anthony was first to have his rathe special boutonniere pinned to his lapel
I pinned on all of the Groom's Men's boutonnieres ensuring each one was in the right position on their lapels
All of the boutonnieres were created in a unique clustered style of seasonal berries and foliages, they were all bound with jute.
Upstairs in the ceremony room the scene was set, two of our Enchanted Trees framed the Registrars table, candlelit lanterns and hanging orbs illuminated the space so romantically
The Registrars table was dressed with a voluptuous design of fresh flowers and foliages
Downstairs we'd lined up the rest of the Boutonnieres and corsages ready to attach to the lapels of the special guests
The Mother of the Groom's Wrist Corsage
Angie the Groom's Mum looked fabulous and her wrist corsage matched her navy and ivory ensemble perfectly
The beautiful Bride's Mum Sandra, was wearing pale blue jacket with navy accessories, we'd made her a corsage to compliment her outfit and to match her daughter's wedding bouquet
The completely adorable Archie the little Page Boy, we'd made him a miniature version of the Groom's Boutonniere
The gorgeous Bridesmaid's were next to arrive, all of the girls were wearing unique gowns, chosen to suit each one perfectly, we'd made them beautiful bouquets to compliment their gowns and to match the Bride's bouquet
The Bridesmaids were all wearing fresh flowers in their hair
At last our Bride the lovely Cheryl arrived, the beautiful autumn sunshine created a golden glow and our Bride looked totally breathtaking...
The Bridal Bouquet was gently cascading with a profusion of exquisite roses in shades of Caramel and honey
Cheryl and her super proud Dad Pete
Leah looking so lovely
Massive Congratulations to Leah & Anthony from all of the team here at Flower Design Events
The fabulous Paul Guard was ready to entertain everyone
Shower of fresh fragrant Rose Petal Confetti
The Photographer up in the trees Paul Hamblin
So lovely to see our 'old' FD Bride & Groom the lovely Vicky & Simon
The magnificent dining room was dressed with a collection of magical table designs
Our Enchanted trees looked wonderful on the tables, reflecting the trees in the garden
The Top Table dressed with our majestic 'Hanging Gardens' design
Each of the lower table designs were created as unique individual creations with tons of exquisite detail all with an autumnal feel
Magical lanterns filled with fresh flowers
Just love this living sculpture it looks as if it's growing out of the centre of the table
The wedding cake was made by the lovely Janine, we'd dressed it with delicate garlands of f resh flowers
Our work here was done it was time to head for home, massive thanks to Cheryl & Anthony for choosing Flower Design Events to create their wedding flowers for them
