WE’RE BACK!!! I’ve had numerous difficulties trying to get on here and write a new blog post (we’ll blame wordpress and not my laziness, no honestly)!!
What a summer, I’m shattered, but also full of wedding love for all my couples and for the exciting ones coming along in 2017, booking up quickly might I add! 🙂
Every summer that comes around I have the best intentions of showing you a wedding from start to finish and then when I get into the thick of it those intentions disappear in a cloud of foliage, not a bad way to go but still not helpful for you at home!
I’ll start with a wedding we had just before we left for our American road trip (yes, we had a holiday)! A mental weekend of three weddings and lots of lists, LOTS of lists. Michelle emailed me this week when we’ve got back and sent some beautiful photos to go with a beautiful email. Michelle and Josh were married at The Huntsman, this is only the second time we’ve been to this venue despite it being so close, hopefully, we’ll be back again!
This weekend we had two weddings, one locally at Standedge Visitor Centre and one in the beautiful town of Saltaire, near Bradford, check out the history on this place, it’s really lovely!
Elsa wanted a BIG bouquet of wild and natural flowers, initially going for an autumnal colour scheme she changed her mind a tiny bit and eventually opted for deep pinks/burgundy and purple. I’ve been so lucky to have brides wanting large and wild bouquets this year, I love creating them, they’re always a big focal point on the day!
Obviously, I tried to match my outfit on the day with the bouquets – I’d make a fabulous bride…just without the big walking boots! 🙂
And then finally we had Caroline and Craig’s wedding at Standedge Tunnel, Caroline was very relaxed about her flowers and just gave me the order of Autumnal, really loved this bouquet too (will there ever be one I don’t like)?! The photographer Shot by Amy took some really beautiful shots of the flowers so will be posting them on our facebook page as soon as they come through, keep a look out on Facebook for more updates. I think this will definitely be one for my wall of flowers in the shop!
