Lisa and Sam - Corals, Cameo's and A Bottom Drawer!

Today we bring you the beautiful wedding of Lisa and Sam from August last year. They chose a vintage-inspired romantic theme for their flowers, with coral colours and muted tones.

Lisa began her day by getting ready with her bridesmaids at their chosen venue, Stancliffe Hall which is nestled right in the heart of the Peak District.  This magnificent grade 2 listed building has stunning views leaving you with a real sense of tranquility and calm, just the kind of setting you need for a very relaxed wedding day.  Check out the link above and have a look at the photos, you can't really appreciate the true beauty of the place until you have seen it.

The ceremony room is really unique and we had the honour of decorating it with frothy bunches of gypsophila pew ends tied to the chairs. We carried the vintage theme throughout the floral designs by using cream enamelled candlesticks topped with gypsophila topiary balls, finished with glass baubles filled with David Austin 'Juliet' roses. Just gorgeous!

Happily we had help to hang the pretty glass baubles, again filled with delicate peach roses, from the walkway between the house and ceremony room.

We also got to dress the room for the wedding breakfast, transferring some of the flowers from the ceremony room and adding a few new arrangements too.

We created a special design to fill the bottom drawer of this gorgeous vintage chest of drawers, supplied by Lisa for guests to pop their cards into - such a lovely idea and so pretty too!

So this brings us the the bridal bouquet.  The main colour being coral with flashes of greens and yellows.  We used 'Juliet' David Austin Roses as the main feature flower giving the bouquet that huge splash of coral colouring to keep in with the theme of the wedding. David Austin Roses are so in fashion at the moment and its very easy to see why,  with their delicate scent and truly stunning English Country Garden look.  We teamed them up with crespedia, burnt orange leucaspernum, brunia, rosemary, peach hypericum, eucalyptus cinerea and a little gypsophila.  The brief we got was vintage inspired, natural and romantic and we feel that we really achieved this here.

Lisa and Sam both thought through all the little details, cameos were really important - inspired by this beautiful brooch and heirloom from Lisa's grandmother

For the bridesmaids Lisa chose corsages instead of the usual bunches, which again added a fantastic uniqueness to the wedding and the flowers.  We kept them simple using two David Austin roses and a sprig of gypsophila, attaching them to coral lace Lisa gave us and incorporating those all important cameo brooches too!

As always Kate Cooper managed to capture the day beautifully with some amazing photography.  Here are a few more shots that we love.
