Elegant lilies and seasonal flowers in shades of hot fuchsia pink created a unique and stylish theme for Kirsty and Chris’s wedding, which was held at the height of summer at Swinton Park near Masham.

We used an exotic combination of oriental stargazer lilies – the bride’s favourite – and graceful calla lilies set against deep green and variegated foliage.

Germini, Lisianthus and large-headed roses added depth and drama to these bright and beautiful floral arrangements.


The bridal bouquet was a truly stunning mix of hot pink roses, pink and white oriental lily heads and pink calla lilies, hand tied with delicate trails of asparagus fern.

The bridesmaids carried softly rounded hand tied posies featuring a selection of mainly white and ivory lilies, roses and seasonal flowers with touches of hot pink – the perfect contrast to the richness of the bride’s bouquet.

A single hot pink rose was used for the bridegroom’s buttonhole.


The wedding ceremony took place in The Library at Swinton Park where we decorated the aisle with hot pink silk rose petals scattered between two lines of large clear glass hurricane vases.

We created an eye-catching giant floral heart which hung from the central window behind the registrars table.

A beautiful long and low arrangement decorated the table itself with lots of bright colour, soft trails of foliage and twinkling nightlights.

Two tall arrangements in contemporary glass vases were placed on wooden plinth bases at either side of the table to add height and drama. The arrangements were moved to the reception area for the top table.

Guest tables were decorated with a lovely mix of pink and ivory lilies, roses and seasonal flowers arranged elegantly in tall glass martini vases.

The vases were lined with dark green aspidistra leaves and surrounded by twinkling nightlights for a wonderfully romantic effect.

The wedding took place on a very hot summer’s day and the wedding party took  advantage of Swinton Park’s outdoor space to enjoy the stunning view from the area outside the library.

Here we had used bay trees on either side of the doorway  decorated with fairy lights and pink ribbon.

Large topiary balls with sparkling fairy lights and low table centres with floating candles and petals in contemporary vases made this an intimate and very special place for the wedding celebrations to continue well into the night.
