Rebecca and Rob

Today I get the pleasure of sharing Rebecca and Rob’s gorgeous wedding from last September.

I love a church wedding, especially when I’m asked to create a beautiful floral arch! This stunner was used to dress the entrance of the pretty village church in Epperstone. After the wedding ceremony we transferred the garland to Hazel Gap Barn where it took pride of place on the mantelpiece in this stunning venue.

Rebecca’s maids were going to be wearing dresses in a rich Raspberry shade, with this in mind we decided on a pretty colour palette of Peach, Raspberry and the softest Lilac to compliment….

As you can see the dresses changed!!

We kept the flowers the same,  and I’m sure you will all agree that the girls’ looked amazing in their gold sequins with the colourful blooms.

The simplest of cottage garden blooms in gorgeous summer hues, clear glass bottles and jars and log slices were all that were needed to make the fabulous space at Hazel Gap look stunning!

We added a few Freesia into all of the florals including the buttonholes for Rob and his men. They were an extra special request from Rebecca, in memory of a very special lady who’s favourite flower was the gorgeous scented Freesia.

Thank you Rebecca and Rob for allowing me to share your Beautiful Day, and Huge Thanks to your talented photographer for the stunning images.

Rosanna and Steven

The beautiful and quaint Country Cottage Hotel in Ruddington was the ideal setting for Rosanna and Steven’s relaxed wedding celebrations in July.

Stunning memories of their special day, beautifully captured by the very talented Kathryn Edwards, Thank you!

This fabulous, fun loving couple wanted to ‘bring the outside in’, as a reflection of their love of the great outdoors and to echo the secluded garden that nestles behind The Country Cottage Hotel. Enamel jugs and jam jars all dressed with lace, and full to overflowing with pretty delicate blooms, certainly brought an essence of the quintessential summer garden to the celebrations.

The bride wore a beautiful Kenneth Winston lace gown from Dream Wedding Dress in Nottingham and Nicola Hodgkinson created the perfect finishing look for Rosanna with a relaxed ‘up do’ and natural make up. Gorgeous! (Stephen was blown away when he saw his beautiful bride, you can see his very emotional reaction here…..just lovely!)

Rosanna carried a hand tied bouquet of summer blooms with her maids’ carrying simple, single stems of blowsy Hydrangea.

Melissa and Anthony

Another beautiful wedding to share with you today.

This was an extra special wedding, simply, because Melissa, is the lovely daughter of a friend of mine. Melissa married Anthony, at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Hucknall on July 2nd and celebrated afterwards with family and friends at Linby and Papplewick Village Hall.

Melissa arrived at the church in true fairy tale style. The horse drawn glass coach, pulled by two majestic white shire horses, made a for a fabulous sight as it travelled through the streets to it’s destination.

The bride wore a beautiful dress from James Bride in Nottingham and carried a pretty, hand tied bouquet of roses, berries and foliage. The bouquets and centrepieces were all in a soft palette of lilac, blush pink and Ivory to co ordinate with the pale lilac of the maids’ full length dresses….and….let’s not forget the lovely flower girl, dressed in white, she carried a hand made flower wand to compliment the bouquets.

Melissa, along with family and friends had been extremely busy on the eve of the wedding, transforming The Village Hall in readiness for the wedding celebrations.

The hall looked fabulous when I arrived on the big day to deliver the tall centrepieces. Each table was dressed with a large martini glass full to overflowing with blooms and pearls. Large mirror tiles and tealights in ‘vintage’ silverware finished them all off to perfection.

Roz and Jamie

Wow! I’ve been dying to share these fabulous images with you.

Jo at soar photo has really captured the fun loving, happy, spirit of this great couple.

Roz and Jamie were married at The Nottingham Council House back in May. Roz looked amazing in her 1950’s inspired dress, (I’m loving the blue corset)! Jamie looked very dapper in a navy blue suit and floral cravat. They look as if they’ve just stepped out of an old movie! Beautiful.

Bright Orange Gerbera,  paired with beautiful red roses made for an eye catching bridal bouquet.

After the ceremony and a photo call in the Arboretum, the happy couple and their guests boarded a big red ‘vintage’ bus to travel to The Brit club for a ‘rave of a celebration!!

Katie and Tiff

It was a fabulous, sunny day for a return trip to Mansfield Manor for the wedding of Katie and Tiff. Two beautiful brides whose personalities shone through in their choice of flowers and dresses. Katie carried a perfect, scented bouquet of Peonies, Roses, and Astilbe  to complement her beautiful full length, lacy gown.12773382_10153310824376363_149329289_oTiff requested lots of foliage and small, pretty flowers to add her own fun style to match her 1950’s inspired dress and amazing pink shoes!  To bring the two styles together delicate spray roses were used in both bouquets, and a trio of roses were pinned into Tiff’s casual ‘up-do’.

Jugs, jars and birdcages full of pretty pastel coloured blooms and Gypsophila,  added a real touch of vintage romance inside the Manor. Tiff’s mum had added her own hand crocheted covers to each jar, so pretty!12789736_10153310824446363_665303748_o‘Lilly’ the vintage VW camper van, not only gave the guests a memorable trip to the venue, she also added a classic backdrop for some fabulous, fun filled photos. (Loving the one above).  Mark Walker,  Katie and Tiff’s wedding photographer loved using ‘Lilly’ as a great prop, he likened it to ‘positioning a toy’ to give a great photo opportunity. Not that Mansfield Manor is short of it’s own superb spaces for that perfect picture.12767981_10153310826036363_622948309_o (1)
