Our Weddings at Allerton Castle
9 Feb 2015
Allerton Castle is a stunning gothic style castle set in six acres of Yorkshire countryside.
This is a very popular wedding venue and has some stunning features which, as a florist, make it a delight to dress.
One of its most striking features is its huge sweeping staircase which is the perfect showpiece for weddings.
Here we made the most of it by decorating the brass handrails with fairy lights and adding a loose and trailing foliage garland incorporating lots of fern and ivy and tiny white flower heads.
The garland echoed the natural flower theme which used a beautiful selection of roses with ample small-headed seasonal flowers. The bridal bouquet was a lovely loose tumbling shower of roses, Astrantia and scented freesia with the intriguing addition of ferns and sempervivium adding texture and variety.
The Great Hall
The staircase leads down to the Great Hall, where many couples choose to have their wedding ceremony.
This stately space creates a real sense of occasion and offers lots of opportunities for creative flower arranging.
With breathtaking views and stunning architectural features, the Ballroom at Allerton Castle is a wonderful place to host a wedding breakfast.
For this wedding, which had a classic theme featuring elegant white roses and peonies, we created spherical arrangements of white flowers in tall silver candelabras.
They made dramatic centerpieces for the wedding breakfast and were complemented by low silver bowls and matching white floral arrangements.
Couples sometimes worry about the strong shade of blue fitting with their ideal colour scheme. We find it’s a fabulous backdrop and have created weddings of every colour in this room, all of which have worked beautifully and looked stunning.
No blog about Allerton Castle can go without a mention for the superb team at Dine. Sophie and her colleagues are wonderful at looking after wedding couples both before and during the event and the catering is fantastic.
