Gemma and Peter, The West Mill, Derbyshire

Beautiful People. Beautiful Flowers. Beautiful Mill.

This is just a snippet of the amazing wedding day of Gemma and Peter, who married in early summer at The West Mill venue in Derbyshire.

This is a couple who know what they like, and Gemma came to our first meeting brimming with design and colour ideas. They were keen for the gorgeous wine bridesmaid dresses to be a starting point for the colours, but didn’t want a scheme that felt heavy or wintery. So into the floral mix we threw stunning pink garden roses, orangey spray roses and the most delicate sweet peas, while the buttonholes were a mix of succulent flowers, blushing bride protea and spray roses, all bound with copper wire ribbon. Perfect!

Peter, the handsome groom loves succulents too, so was keen to introduce these too, so each design had a succulent somewhere, and the table plan was dedicated to these beauties!

All this loveliness was captured by The Twins Photography and I have to say, when I first viewed the album, I shed a tear or too the images were so emotional! Congrats you two.

Tipi-luxe shoot, The Heath House

Tipi Styling. Florals. Co-ordination.

This was, without a shadow of a doubt, a tipi wedding feast for the eyes!

Earlier this year I was fortunate to be given almost ‘carte blanche’ to create a styling and floral theme for the Peaktipis spring open weekend, hosted at The Heath House in Staffordshire. Working with the dedicated and incredibly hard working team at Peaktipis we pulled together a super luxe look that suited the elegance of the country house setting, and challenged the theory that tipis are for rustic weddings only.

I was keen to create a fully opulent look, and the starting point was ‘that’ amazing dress I selected with the help of Lorraine from Lori G Bridal in Derbyshire. The voluminous tulle and lace gown had shades of pinks and blues within the skirt and I used this as the colour direction for the rest of the styling. I pulled together the best and most beautiful blooms available to create a to die for bouquet and finished the bridal styling with a unique floral hair piece and necklace. The long tables were brimming with foliage runners, guilded candle sticks and compotes, with golden grapes and apples to give it that little bit extra.The hand painted stationary by Yellowstone Art Boutique and cakes and treats by Bake Ashbourne fitted perfectly with the scheme.

As with all shoots, you’re in the hands of the photographer, and I’m sure you’ll agree that Ben from HBA Photography has created an awesome set of images for us all to enjoy!

Gina and Matt, Shottle Hall, Derbyshire

Champagne Supernova…

Gina and Matt Married at Shottle Hall on one of the most beautiful days in August. Gina was keen to make the wedding a day to remember for everyone and didn’t leave any detail untouched, and selected a beautiful champagne colour palette that created an old time glamour feel to the day. Her all rose bouquet was accented with fine champagne flecks and the table decor sat high on elegant champagne mercury glass vases that really looked the business. Her darling flower girls wore flowers in their hair and I’m sure you’ll agree they really looked beautiful.

Congratulations to a beautiful couple.
