Tipi-luxe shoot, The Heath House

A tipi 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!

And if you want the hairs on your arms to stand on end watch this beautiful film by Jason Lynch. And yes, the models are a real couple – can’t you tell?

Kate and Rob’s colour pop wedding at The West Mill, Derbyshire

Colourful and cosy in Darley Abbey

So here is a beauty of a wedding at The West Mill – that was featured a few months ago in Perfect Wedding magazine for its fab details and use of colour – just perfect for a late winter wedding.

This lovely couple contacted me late last year to provide the most lovely cheery florals for their January wedding  in the very picturesque Darley Abbey area of Derbyshire.

You will have probably seen on earlier posts that The West Mill is a wonderful venue full of quirky details and Kate and Rob really wanted to play this up! With the use of their lovely collected Golden Syrup tins, used as table centres and vintage bottles with colour pop blooms. The couple created a super cute light bulb installation to which I added in more flowers from their scheme.

Kate and her maids wore really pretty dresses, that were all high street finds, but boy did they ‘rock the look’, along with Rob sporting the very best in tweed and bow tie combos they really were a great looking bridal party.

All about the details

I met Jane and Tommy at the Save the Date wedding event in Derby when they were in the initial planning stages of their Buxton based wedding, and I was thrilled when Jane confirmed I’d be their florist for the day! Jane was bursting with ideas and was keen to show me all her collections of curiosities that she wanted to incorporate into their big day.

Prohibited Love a styled shoot at The West Mill

A collaborative shoot at The West Mill

Back in February 2016 some of my favourite wedding pros added their time and expertise to create this stunning selection of inspiration images at The West Mill, in Derbyshire. The Mill is a venue unlike any other, and we were keen to style this venue in a way that really showed off its style and atmosphere, in a shoot a that was just a little bit more Rock ‘n’ Roll. It was a full day shoot, and boy were we tired when we blew out the final candle but we were also thrilled with the outcome.

Country wedding of Suzy and Matt at Lower Damgate Farm

A Purple Reign Country Wedding at Lower Damgate

These high summer, country wedding celebrations were held at Lower Damgate Farm in Ilam, with the ceremony taking place just a few miles down the road at Beechenhill Farm. Suzy was the most charming and enthusiastic of brides and went all out, with her now husband Matt, to plan a fun filled day, for all her guests to enjoy. You can tell she’s a girl with style – just look at that car she arrived in!

Their choice of flowers included roses, scabious, stock along with mint, rosemary and oregano as well as other seasonal treats, and Matt wore a wonderful buttonhole of mixed herbs, wheat and berry.

The couple had lots of helpful friends who helped them DIY the decor so I helped by providing these super pretty personal flowers. It was a real joy to then see this wedding featured on Love My Dress on Christmas Eve eve!
