Teepee wedding (October 2014)

18th October I realised I had the best job ever!!!
Not only was I attending my friends wedding I was delighted to be doing the wedding flowers. A little bit of prep work and everything easily fell into place for a what was going to be a pretty amazing wedding!! James and Stef wanted their wedding to have a relaxed feel and that reflected in the flowers with a lovely colour palette of peach, green and white. They chose a mixed selection of flowers to create a loose rustic design that would be simple and relaxed but enough to be noticed. It really was a perfect day (and the weather was ever so kind too).

The prep work:
Got in a few samples of flowers, threw a few things together and we were well underway. Ribbon was ordered, bought and cared for the succulent plant, vases were ready for the day :)

The prep work

Wedding flowers:
Peach avalanche roses, white avalanche roses, ivory germini, cream waxflower, white gypsophilia, white lisianthus, spray white roses, green carnations, white freesia and eucalyptus.

Norcliffe chapel in Styal was the perfect place to say I do, with a lovely service, photos in the grounds and confetti throwing. (And the dodging of a few cobbles)

Venue:
A little surprise for the guests who all thought they were going to a country pub. The Bells of peover in Cheshire provided amazing food (especially the sticky toffee pudding) but a Teepee was where we all enjoyed our food and evening. The fires not only kept us all warm but we all enjoyed toasted marshmallows… Was a truly spectacular wedding!!

Stef’s bouquet was just lovely! The right size and colours complimented her dress perfectly.

Buttonholes:
James chose to have the peach roses which I wrapped in string to match Stef’s bouquet which was tied in hessian, And for the ushers white roses.

Corsages:
James’s mum had a bag corsage which was held together with magnets and Stef’s mum had a corsage for her jacket also on a magnet.

Table centrepieces:
Simple single flowers in the vases were just right for the tables, tied with matching ribbon.

Flowers on the cake:
The very last thing I had to do was put the flowers on the cake, nothing to elaborate just a touch of something, so I used spray roses.

I was very proud to attend the wedding and it was a joy to hear everyone’s lovely comments. The Teepee was out of this world and James and Stef put in a lot of preparation for their big day and it defiantly paid off- all the guests were truly amazed with the venue and the food from The Bells of peover was scrumptious, I will defiantly be returning for food in the future :)
