Another stunner!! Cool ice blue and white flowers for Catherine and David’s July wedding last summer. They weren’t to know it…but…the day turned out to be an absolute scorcher!! The flowers lent a cool elegance to the whole day.The day started early, with the delivery of bouquets to Catherine, spending the morning at her mum’s home in Mapperley. Ashleigh Turner was already there, when I arrived, creating a fabulous, soft ‘up do’ for the beautiful, happy and relaxed bride.Then…a short drive in to Nottingham City Centre where David, was eagerly awaiting the delivery of the buttonholes at the St. James’s Hotel, before he and his men took a leisurely walk up to the magnificent Cathedral of St. Barnabas.
Finally, a picturesque drive over to the little village of Sutton Bonington to dress Sutton Bonington Hall, another new and undiscovered venue for me. The Hall, a Grade 2 Queen Anne Country property, sits in the heart of this quaint village surrounded by a superb landscaped garden (ideal for those all important photo opportunities). Just the perfect choice for this lovely couple.Catherine wore a beautiful Ronald Joyce dress from 7th Heaven Bridal and carried a stunning bouquet of white and ice blue cottage garden flowers.Centrepieces of pure white blowsy Hydrangeas in large glass cubes, were all that were needed to add a simple elegant statement to the wedding breakfast.Thank you to Mr and Mrs Cawley, J.S.Coates and Roo Stain for sharing stunning images of a most memorable day.
