We were delighted to be chosen to do the flowers for Rachael and Adam’s wedding on Saturday 9th July. The enquiry initially came through Sarah’s Bed and Breakfast which is set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, can accommodate 12 guests and has over an acre of gardens and adjacent meadow. As the Rachael grew up lived in the village she was looking for a venue where she could erect a marquee, accommodate guests and that was preferably in the village – Perfect Foxley Brow House, Antrobus it was!!
Rachael is no stranger to weddings. As a wedding photographer herself (Rachael Edwards, Lewes, Sussex), she had obviously attended many weddings, through clients, friends and relatives so she knew exactly what she wanted. A relaxed country wedding, with straw bales, bunting, garden flowers of every colour and variety, candles, croquet and hopefully lovely weather!!!
David Austin Juliet roses, pale blue delphinium and viburnum opulus formed the basis of Rachael’s bouquet and circlet, together with white peonies and nigella loosely hand tied to create a relaxed ‘just picked’ look.
The 5 adult bridesmaids carried hand tied bouquets of sweet peas, delphiniums, matricaria daisy, delphiniums and juliet roses. The gorgeous flower girl Sophie, carried just sweet peas and matircaria daises with a circlet to match.
Buttonholes of herbs and lavender were a perfect choice for Adam and his party.
Flowers for the marquee comprised, cornflowers, bridal gladioli, wheat, roses, dahlia, marigolds. lavender, alchmilla molls, sweet peas, allium, pinks, achillia to name a few!!!
The main feature was a garland down the central pole of the marquee. We
were delighted when we saw it as it isn’t often these days that you have
one of these to decorate. We loved it.
The day was perfect, it even stopped raining for the drinks reception.
