Planned to Perfection

The story of when Claire married Danny with beautiful images by Lesley Meredith........

On a beautiful warm sunny day last June it was my pleasure to be the florist when Claire married Danny at Crewe Hall.  The couple had spent alot of time and effort planning their day and as you can see from these gorgeous pictures by Lesley Meredith everything was perfect.   Lesley is an experienced and award winning photographer who loves her work. When working with couples she ensures they feel relaxed and comfortable.....The result, stunning images which capture genuine moments of their day.

I remember Claire visiting my workshop a couple of days before the big day, full of pre-wedding nerves.  However as the day arrived her worries were unfounded.  She said, once she stepped into her dress her nerves disappeared and she was the calmest she had felt in 18 months!  Her dress was by Sottero and Midgley from Maria Modes Bridal Wear in Macclesfield.

She wanted me to create a hand tied bouquet in ivory and white to complete her look.  I used crystal blush callas, avalanche roses, lisianthus, freesia and veronica to give the bouquet a soft feminine feel which would compliment her dress.

In contrast to this soft look Claire and Danny wanted to incorporate a bold colour scheme of purple and lime into their day.  The bridesmaids dresses were a deep aubergine colour and carried bouquets of avalanche roses with a touch of green hypericum berries.

This colour scheme was used for the ceremony and wedding breakfast.  It was perfect for the setting as Crewe Hall itself dates back to the 17th Century and is decorative and Jacobean in style.  The ceremony was dressed with lanterns and petals and candelabras.  The guest tables were also decorated with candelabras with purple, ivory, lime flowers and crystal trim.

They incorporated the purple colour scheme into their fabulous wedding cake.......
As the day continued and evening approached Lesley captured Claire and Danny surrounded by friends and family enjoying their unforgettable day.
