Meadowy Florals with Country Charm - Claire and Toby's Late Summer Wedding
Today's wedding took place in August this year at a venue that I only visited for the first time a couple of months ago. I was surprised at how beautiful Whirlowbrook Hall was and that I hadn't been there before. I am definitely going to set aside some time to take a walk around the grounds as they looked so beautiful on my drive through.
Anyway, enough about me, Claire and Ryan got married at Christchurch in Fulwood with the reception held at Whirlowbrook Hall. Claire is a massive fan of wild, country and meadowy flowers and wanted a colour pallet of blues, creams and whites. As you can see from the photography that this was kept very much in mind when designing the bouquet. Included in the bouquet were blue delphinium, blue hydrangea, thistles, corn flowers, nigella, cream lisianthus, gypsophila, astilbe, astrantia, echinops, wax flower, eucalyptus, tanacetum and crespedia.
For the bridesmaids Claire and Ryan chose to have smaller versions of Claire's bridal bouquet with a greater concentration of cream flowers so the blue really stood out for Claire. Their little flower girl Freya got to carry one of my favourite accessories, a wand!!!! I just love them as an alternative to bouquets for little girls.
The men had sprig style buttonholes based around a blue thistle with cream flowers but using more blue in Toby's. The ladies went for a sprig style too but with a selection of more softer and feminine flowers.
A massive thanks to Sarah Janes Photography for letting us use these gorgeous images, they are just beautiful. Just follow the link to see more of her work.
