We gave this pretty pink palette a contemporary feel by adding a touch of bright fuchsia to the mix for Rachel and Robert’s wedding at St Michael’s and All Angels Church in Middleton Tyas, which was followed by a reception at Middleton Lodge.

Trailing jasmine, ivy and soft fern and lots of mixed country garden style foliage helped to create a very natural look.

We used a beautiful mix of larkspur, delphiniums, hydrangea, lisianthus and gypsophilia in delicate shades of pink and white for a romantic feel.

The addition of bright pink tones to the bride’s loosely arranged hand-tied bouquet of seasonal flowers gave a modern twist to a classic floral theme.

The bridesmaids carried small hand-tied bouquets which complemented the bridal design.

Delicate arrangements of ivory wax flower and white gypsophilia were designed for the bride and bridesmaids to wear in their hair.

The flower girl wore a simple circlet of flowers in her hair and carried a small petal basket.

A single Amnesia rose with a few eucalyptus leaves and a small sprig of rosemary was used to create classic male buttonholes.

The church’s Lych gate was decorated with bunches of white gypsophila and seasonal flowers decorated with trailing foliage and a simple trailing bow.

Middleton Lodge’s central font was the perfect spot for an eye-catching arrangement featuring a hurricane vase generously decorated with large-headed pink hydrangea, larkspur, lisianthus, gypsophila and trailing foliage. The base of the font was decorated with large pink hydrangea heads placed into small silver vases. Two elegant pedestal arrangements were created in silver urns using tall stems of larkspur, delphiniums and molucella, each surrounded by a ring of hydrangea and seasonal flowers.

Silk ivy trails and fairy lights were used to decorate the poles in Middleton Lodge’s marquee.

The table centres featured tall clear glass cone vases with a loose and tumbling arrangement of flowers and foliage and were surrounded by twinkling nightlights.

Hurricane vases, candles and nightlights added to the sense of romance.
