Today we are bringing you a super Spring wedding from May this year. Emma and Chris got married at the beautiful Northorpe Hall which provided a natural and relaxed atmosphere, within just stunning gardens, which is just what the couple were aiming for.
Emma had quite a specific request with regards to her bouquet, she suffers with hay fever so T couldn't use anything too scented. Sometimes we have to take things other than aesthetics into account but as always it's never a problem. Our lovely bride wanted a very natural, woodland feel to the day with plenty of twigs and branches. For the brides bouquet T chose to use low pollinators like wheat, barley, succulents, dried lavender, twigs, bluebells, euphorbia, berries, thistles, sweet peas and viburnum opulus with many of the blooms being British grown.
The bridesmaids had a similar design to the brides but smaller. The buttonholes were a sprig style design including a white thistle and wheat. We just love this pretty cool, but soft colour palette.

Alice and Mark got married July this year at Baslow Church then onto Thornbridge Hall for the reception. They wanted quite a traditional feel to the wedding which is really reflected in the photographs, with pictures of the bride at home and a beautiful church ceremony.
For her bouquet Alice gave T the brief of a country garden look with a heathery, muted colour pallet. The flowers chosen were lavender, heather, white thistle, astilbe, lisianthus, roses (including my favourite 'Memory Lane'), 'Vendella', David Austin 'Patience' and spray roses. My favourite little addition by far though was the pale pink chrysanthemum's, they are the ones that look like little pom pom's.
For the bridesmaids T designed a smaller bouquet similar to the brides but with an even more of a muted colour pallet so they stood out against the bridesmaids dresses. Buttonholes were kept to a focal designs with a single 'Memory Lane' rose.
Again this wedding was made a little bit more special as we were working along side fellow Lightspacer Ellie Grace Photography. Gorgeous pictures as always.

Ali and Jaime got married in June at Losehill House on a gorgeous sunny day, nice enough that Jaime managed to get in a little bike ride before the ceremony. The couple wanted a relaxed feel to the day and by the look of things that's what they got.
Flowers were very important for Ali, so much so that she knew their wedding would have to take plae in June so that she could have a day filled with peonies - as she has grown up around her mum's love of flowers. So, as always, T rose to the challenge and came up with some stunning designs. For her bouquet Ali wanted more flowers than foliage and a round quite compact design. The flowers chosen were David Austin 'Kira' and 'Patience', white peonies, pale pink peonies, 'Vendella' roses, ranunculus, white spray roses, white stocks and anemones.
The bride and the bridesmaids had little roses in their hair. For the bridesmaids bouquet Ali went for a similar design to hers, just slightly smaller. Buttonholes were kept classic and simple with a focal design.
Now we get to the venue flowers, I must admit these are some of the most gorgeous venue flowers I have seen, absolutely stunning. The pew ends were breath taking but not a patch on the floral curtain made using Peonies. I just love it.
Ali and Jaime were such a pleasure to work with and the icing on the wedding cake was a brilliant thank you e-mail from the bride herself which we blogged a couple of weeks ago. Just follow this link to read more.
Massive thanks to HBA Photography for the amazing photographs!
