The wedding of Dani & Ben...

With rain, hail and snow threatening the north west last week, I have to admit I was a rather nervous the night before Dani and Ben's big day on Saturday. Delicate ranunculus, baby daffodils and paper thin anemones were no match for this wintery weather and the fear of frost overnight was enough to tip the most laid back of floral designers over the edge. It must have been Dani's Caribbean heritage that bought the sunshine and took the edge off the chill as by the time I was delivering the bridal party flowers I couldn't believe the change in weather, and as I arrived to decorate the church it was positively spring-like.

Luckily that was the inspiration behind all the flowers for Dani & Ben's wedding day, with soft pastel hues in yellow and pink sitting with fresh green foliage to celebrate Easter and this lovely time of year. Palest pink tropical anthuriums featured in the bride's bouquet and the large church arrangements to honour the bride and her Caribbean family, which set the tone of the day (guests later enjoyed a live steel band and a LOT of dancing - lucky things!). The little flower girls carried toy bunnies down the aisle adorned with fresh flower necklaces tied with vintage lace, and the pew ends were decorated with fresh flower posies which were later taken to the reception to be dotted around the room. Large pedestal arrangements framed the wedding ceremony and the wedding breakfast and the men, mums and bridesmaids all carried/wore fresh spring flowers in palest pastel hues.

I can't wait to see more of the professional photos from the day, which I will be sure to show you as soon as I can.

Happy Easter...
