Elegant vintage pinks for Nina and Curt

Nina and Curt married in May, with Nina carrying a stunning vintage inspired bouquet in shades of pink and Curt wearing an elegant Sweet Avalanche rose buttonhole to tie in with the bridal bouquet. Nina's four bridesmaids carried stunning bouquets of ivory and white roses and seasonal flowers.

Meeting with Nina was lovely, she showed me lots of things that she loved, in particular the very delicate David Austin Roses that we used in her bouquet, across the bridal party, in the candelabra and on the registrar table which was a blousy grouping of stunning roses, phlox and delicate gypsophila.

It was fantastic to work on their beautiful wedding and I'm delighted to share it with you. Big congratulations to Nina and Curt xx

Nina's gorgeous bouquet reflected the pretty Cherry Blossom trees that were in flower at the time. They were almost like confetti falling specially for the day!

A beautiful, cascading long and low design containing Sweet Avalanche roses, David Austin Roses and stocks among other lovely flowers.

We visited the Palace Hotel in advance of the wedding to measure up their candelabra to decorate them on Nina's behalf. They do look fabulous in their gorgeous flowers!

A close up of the registrar long and low which looks amazing and works perfectly with the vintage inspiration. I think I may try an grow a David Austin Rose in my garden! x

Tolu and Michael's stunning Monastery wedding

Tolu and Michael married at the incredibly beautiful Gorton Monastery in Manchester on a crisp sunny day at Easter. I wasn't really blogging regularly at the time so I'm delighted to share this stunning wedding with you. The Monastery offers such a fabulous space to work with and height was the order of the day! Tolu loved simple which seasonal flowers, grouped together for a chic effect, so I was delighted that she loved her bouquet of peonies, ranunculus and avalanche roses as much as I did. A huge congratulations to Tolu and Micheal on their marriage xxx

Tolu's bouquet of seasonal white peonies, gorgeous ranunclus and ranunculus buds with avalanche roses.

A circlet for the little flower girl created using ivory rose buds.

Tall arrangements of lilies (one of Tolu's favourity flowers) in metre high vases. The ribbon was selected to tie the wedding colours in and matched the colours in the stationery that was designed and hand created by Tolu's sister. Mirrors were put into place to reflect the incredible ceiling in the building.

The beautiful chair covers were put into place by Chapman Holmes who also did all the catering and event management. The smell of my food made my mouth water! The team were an absolute pleasure to work with on the day.

The wedding ceremony was set up with two huge displays of lilies - absolutely gorgeous!
