Flower Power at Middleton Lodge Open Day
17 Oct 2013
We were extremely proud of our recent floral designs for an exclusive wedding open day at the beautiful Middleton Lodge house.
The dramatic entrance hall gave us plenty of scope for creativity and we used bold white flowers and candlelight to create a warm and very striking welcome to the house. We created a luxurious ring of hydrangea and roses on the central font surrounding a central hurricane vase with candle.
Two large feature arrangements in contemporary white urns were filled with roses, white lisianthus and striking pieces of contorted willow for a fresh, modern effect. White lanterns completed the look.
In the ceremony room itself we chose soft shades of pink and peach with seasonal foliage. The room looked stunning with the fire roaring, lots of candles and the view of the gardens.
Large silver urns were used to create a dramatic ceremony backdrop. The bold design used seasonal gladioli and a ring of oak leaves, ‘Sweet Avalanche’ and ‘Florence’ roses and cream lisianthus, with hanging nightlight globes and crystal droplets.
A similar mix of flowers was used in silvered glass and mini milk bottle style vases on the registrar’s table. Silver crackle nightlights and silver candlesticks were placed amongst the small flower designs.
We met some lovely brides and it was also really good to meet other talented wedding suppliers at the open day. These included wedding stationery specialist Julia at Noble Fine Art, Stan and Jane of Stan Seaton photography, Bernadette at Dreamworld cakes, Jade and Nicky at Gasp Photography, Paula at Poppy Bridal, Lesley at the North Yorkshire branch of Simply Bows & Chair Covers and Felicity at Briar House Flowers. There were some wonderful wedding ideas and lots of creativity on display.
