The Beautiful Winter Wedding Day of Jo & Neil at West Tower at Aughton

I can't begin to tell you how much we enjoyed this magical Winter Wonderland wedding day over at one of our favourite venues the lovely West Tower at Aughton, to be honest not just the day itself but the entire build up, getting to know Jo & Neil has been an absolute joy!!! We've had some fabulous appointments, we've shared stories, we discussed every minor and major detail around this beautiful wedding day and honestly couldn't wait for the big day to arrive, these two really are the most wonderful couple and we felt honoured to be a small part of such a special day..
At our Mood Board appointment Jo & Neil brought in the most elegant board packed to bursting with inspirational imagery and literally tons of ideas, we learned we'd be working alongside a spectacular crew of wedding professionals too...

West Tower really is a fabulous country house venue 
We'd hung a big bundle of fresh Mistletoe just above the entrance
Bride's Little Helper had provided signs and the seating plan all of which were dressed with fresh flowers

Our team pinned on all of the boutonnieres and corsages ensuring each one was perfectly positioned

Light and delicate corsages created to match the bridal party flowers were pinned on the special ladies

Beautiful corsage for the Bride's Mum designed to match her lovely dress and jacket

Inside the entrance hall we'd created a fresh flower card collector
The scene was set in West Tower for the wedding ceremony
We'd made a frame of fresh flowers to create a backdrop for the ceremony, we'd followed the lines of the room selecting a square shape for the frame

Two of our Enchanted Trees were placed either side of the floral frame

Miniature Fir trees were included to mirror the imagery on Jo & Neil's Mood Board, their proposal was in an evergreen forest with snow on the ground

The registrars Table featured posies of wild winter flowers in wooden and rustic vessels

 We'd left a gap in the centre of the Registrars table for Jo's wedding bouquet to be placed during the ceremony

Two more Enchanted Trees framed the top of the stairs marking the start of the aisle
 Lanterns and the foliage & Gypsophilia Hoops dressed the aisle perfectly

Everyone was eventually seated and the Groom and his Bet Man were in position

Our gorgeous Bridal Party were heading down stairs
The beautiful Bridesmaids Jen & Darcey looked heavenly as they led the Bridal Party into the ceremony

Massive Congratulations to Jo & Neil from all of the team here at Flower Design Events

Jo's bouquet looked absolutely perfect with her exquisite gown, we'd included fresh White Peonies, Ranunculus, Roses, Hellebores, Mistletoe, Albiflora, Anemones, Olive, Senecio, Wax Flower, Rosemary, Eryngium, Veronica, Eucalyptus and Mimosa

The Seating Plan by Brides Little Helper was dressed with posies of fresh flowers
The heavenly wedding cake by Vanilla Nova Cakes was dressed with fresh flowers and stood on a floral cake stand
Our glorious Enchanted Trees dressed the guest tables bring that magical winter forest vibe in to West Tower Wedding Venue

The Top Table was of course super romantic our Floral Frame was now dressed with hanging tea light orbs and created an exquisite backdrop for the Bride & Groom



 The hoops of foliage and Gypsophilia were moved to the backs of the chairs on the top table
An empty wooden vase was left in the middle of the top table for the Bride to pop her bouquet into

Our work here was done, it was time to head for home, many thanks to Jo & Neil and their lovely families for allowing us to be a tiny part of such an amazing day xxx
