Emma and Daley's Peak Edge Hotel Wedding - Perfect pine cones in the Peak District

Hi all,

I am a massive fan of a Winter wedding as I love the lighting and the florals and foliage that are in season at this time, so I was so excited this year when we had quite a few December weddings, Emma and Daley being one of them.  The couple got married at the beginning of December at Peak Edge Hotel which created a stunning back drop for the fabulous photography.

They both wanted a very chilled and informal day, keeping it simple with plenty of personal touches; with a rustic, old school vintage look and a colour palette of white, grey, silver and cream.

For her bouquet Emma wanted a very vintage, meadowy, 'just picked' look with plenty of texture.  The florals chosen were brunia, white thistle, white roses, spray roses, lisianthus, eucalyptus, kochia, pine and pine cones.

The bridesmaids had a similar design to the bride but slightly smaller and more compact.  For the buttonholes the men had a very rustic sprig design, T incorporated elements from Emma's bouquet so it all flowed beautifully.  Ladies buttonholes were similar but of course far more dainty.  Here's T to tell you a little more about working with Emma & Daley.

Hello everyone!

So, where to start?  Emma first contacted me in March to arrange her flowers and as soon as we met, I just knew I going to love designing for her.  We talked at length about those all important details which are so important to create a really special look and feel.  One of these was how special Winter is to them both and especially skiing, in fact vintage skis were part of their decorations, along with the cutest little skis on the top of the cake (which was suitably adorned with flowers, of course). As Emma wanted something really simple for her table arrangements, I suggested little Christmas trees all covered in snow. Set in the cutest little rustic pots, they were perfect for their Winter Wonderland and made lovely little presents too. The last little, but no means least little detail, was a buttonhole for Henry their tiny little 18 month old page boy which was constructed using a magnet and not a prickly thistle like the men's.  Such a wonderful family affair, such fun and such lovely, lovely people!


Emma and Daley also took the time out to send us a wonderful e-mail to say thank you.  It read like this:

"Daley and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all the beautiful flowers.  I am completely in love with my bouquet and still can't stop looking at it.  It also smells amazing in my living room!  The buttonholes and centre pieces looked brilliant.  We got loads of compliments on how lovely and different they all were.

Everything was perfect!  Thank you

Emma and Daley"
