Chantelle and Adam were married on 15 September 2018 at The Coach House, Marks Hall Estate. They chose a beautiful pastel colour combination of pink, lilac and blue with a little bit of ivory coming through. We used roses, spray roses, delphinium, lisianthus, gypsophila, lavender and astrantia, with a mix of different eucalyptus foliages.
Crates full of flowers ready for delivery!
Chantelle's bouquet was a beautiful mix of pastels, with the delphiniums making a real statement amongst the flowers. The bouquet was finished with pretty trailing ribbons in shades of pink and ivory.
The bridesmaids carried smaller versions of the bridal bouquet, featuring all the same flowers and foliages and also finished with trailing ribbons.
The buttonholes were so pretty - pink and white spray roses for the groom and best man and pink spray roses for the other men, all complimented by some delphinium and eucalyptus foliage.
The ladies corsages were a bit bigger than the buttonholes, with the addition of some lilac lisianthus and dried lavender. I just love the mix of pastels! All of the buttonholes and corsages went out in personalised vases - this adds a lovely little touch and if you're worried that someone important will end up without one or wearing the wrong one then this helps to avoid that happening. Got to save on the stress wherever you can!!
Marks Hall is one of my all time favourite venues so it was great to be able to decorate the gazebo ready for the ceremony. I constructed a simple foliage arch around the entrance, with two clusters of flowers - one on either side. Chantelle and Adam were really chilled and pretty much let me do what I wanted on the gazebo, but I had to work with the means available to me - there weren't a lot of fixings on the gazebo so I was a little bit limited for places to attach flowers, but I think the overall result looks fabulous! It framed the bride and groom perfectly while they said their vows.
We also attached small jam jars with flowers in them to every other chair along the aisle, and these were later moved to be placed on the table centres. We designed a large long and low arrangement for the ceremony table, which was later moved to the top table for the reception. It's great to be able to decorate the ceremony area for your wedding but when budgets are tight this is usually the first place to be cut. Therefore if you can use your reception flowers for the ceremony area first to save on costs then this is always something I will recommend.
I made a little friend while setting up - this is Mr Percy Peacock! I was slightly concerned he was going to eat the flowers but he didn't seem too fussed with them!
The long and low looked great in the barn for the reception - the colours worked perfectly in this stunning venue. As well as a couple of the small jam jars from the chair ends the table centrepieces also featured a large mason jar arrangement and the trio sat on a wooden log slice.
I also decorated the cake with fresh flowers - I added a foliage garland around the base with little clusters of flowers between the tiers. I love the personalised cake topper!

Wishing this lovely a couple a long and happy future together! 💜💗💙
