Sarah and Ralph - Rustic Prettiness with Hessian, Ribbons & Pastels
Today we are bringing you a really special wedding which took place only this weekend. Sarah and Ralph got married at Yeldersley Hall in Ashbourne deep in the Derbyshire countryside. The Hall is surrounded by picturesque gardens making it an ideal location for a real rustic country wedding and the owner and staff there were beyond lovely too!
For the bridal bouquet Sarah wanted an informal, unstructured hand tied with creams, peaches and blushes. Among many others the bouquet included green bell, shell pink spray roses and blush ‘Vendella’ roses, 'Peach Avalanche' roses, white double lisianthus, freesia and a little muscari. We delivered the flowers personally and Sarah was beyond happy with them and got a little emotional and overwhelmed when she saw them. We know it sounds a bit wicked but we know we have done a fantastic job when a bride is overcome with emotion and is one of the many reasons why we love doing what we do. Seeing all of you on your very special day, getting ready, is just such a joy.
The button holes were designed to look like a small bunch of flowers with Ralph's button hole containing flowers from Sarah's bouquet. Muscari was a firm favourite with the bride and groom so featured in both of their flowers.
The groomsmen, grandparents and parents buttonholes were even smaller, daintier versions of the grooms button hole including gorgeous shell coloured roses.
These are an absolute favourite of mine. The little bridesmaids had wands, I always get excited when T buys wands at the wholesalers. Each one contained a small selection of flowers from the brides bouquet with a peach ribbon to hold it all together.
For the table decorations Sarah and Ralph went for cream birdcages for the 'top' table and jam jars again filled with similar flowers to the brides bouquet so the theme ran strong throughout. Jam jars containing pretty blooms were also placed on the ceremony table. Simple yet stunning.
Whilst we were at the venue we couldn't help but notice these beautiful chairs that they had in the ceremony room. Adding lots of character to the venue - we absolutely loved the way they hung the pastel coloured ribbon from the chair backs. Beautiful.
