The final part of Claire's wedding was the wedding breakfast in The Churchill suite at Branston Hall.
We talked through some options and they settled on our wooden crates. They were filled with the same flowers as the church displays.
Blush and ivory roses, gyp, carnations, eustoma and stallion chrysants and mixed foliage.
We loved the table numbers!!
Just the right size we feel for a low design, allowing plenty of space for those extra drink glasses once everyone is sat down.
Inside the foam was wrapped in ivory sisal so as the display could be taken out and kept/given away and we collected the crates the next morning.
The Churchill Suite is a gorgeous space and looks lovely dressed in this scheme.
If you are getting married or holding your wedding breakfast here please get in touch to see how we could style your day. We have many set ups in our portfolio for this popular venue and can show you the difference a style can bring to the space.
Or if you like these crates we can hire them to you for you to DIY or fill them with your choice of flowers and deliver to any local venue.
Any hired items are collected by us the very next day, saving you the job of returning them.
We aim to make the whole process as seamless and easy as possible so you can get on with enjoying your wedding day and the first full day as a married couple.

Claire and her groom were married at All Saints Church at Branston.
(To see the bouquets click here)
This was the first time we have decorated this church and what a lovely space it is. So light and airy and although still having many traditional church features it felt very modern inside.
We placed two traditional style pedestals at the altar with a mix of flowers from the bridal bouquet, roses, gyp and eucalyptus along with eustoma, carnations and stallion chrsants and other mixed foliage.
Some of these flowers and foliage are scented which adds another dimension to the displays.
Still incorporating the ivory and blush colour scheme,
The stands were ours, hired, we have them in white too should you wish.
For ease of moving to the venue the display is in a self contained dish which sits in the pedestal. This also means that the displays can be kept/given as gifts after the day has ended and we can collect our stands.
The pew ends were lovely small white wicker heats, which the bride provided along with the gorgeous satin ribbon for hanging. We added on a blush pink and ivory rose with lace ribbon and hung them on alternative pews.
Looking very effective against the dark wood
The aisle of All Saints Church Branston.
The ceremony space all set for the happy couple.
We also provided a lovely long and low display for the entrance but the vicar locked the door before I remembered to take a photo!! This was also transferred to the wedding breakfast for the top table display.
If you are having a church wedding, whether here at Branston or another church please get in touch to see how we could style the area in keeping with your bridal party flowers. We believe this is all part of the same set up and as such all displays should tone in together to create a beautiful space and memory for years to come.
We can decorate any church but please ask the vicar/warden before speaking to us as some churches prefer the ladies to provide the flowers. The earlier you mention you are speaking to a florist and keep them informed the easier the whole process is for all.
We are always happy to speak direct to them to align any fears they have about the fabric of the building.
We have a large portfolio of many local churches we have had the pleasure in decorating for our happy couples.

Claire had her colours chosen when we spoke, ivory, blush pink and silver, and wanted to keep the bridal party flowers fairly simple. After a discussion on what could be available and different combinations she chose this bouquet similar to a previous bouquet I had created. It was just what she had envisioned.
Ivory and sweet avalanche roses, seeded eucalyptus, gyp, silver leaf and grey balls, all mixed together to create a full looking bouquet.
The stems were bound in lace.
She chose a gyp posy for her 3 bridesmaids again with lace around the stems.
The groomsmen each wore a simple ivory rose with eucalyptus leaves. These are shown on the delivery board.
The girls bouquets all together all ready for delivery.
Part 2 will follow on Friday. The ceremony at Branston All Saints Church.
If you like these bouquets and would like similar or want to discuss other colour options, please get in touch with your wedding date and book a free, no obligation consultation.

If you didn't know today is
St Valentine's Day
As I hope you will realise today is a mega busy day for us, as florists we make up and hand deliver lots of bouquets around Gainsborough, Lincoln and the villages.
If you see our van on the road give us a wave.
It is so lovely to see sooo many happy faces receiving their flowers, some expected and some not so much.
If you receive a display and there is no card or no name attached please don't ring. We can give no more information than what is written. If the sender wanted you to know who was sending they would've signed it.
If you are reading this and have forgotten to send any flowers, do give us a ring as we may still have a few spare made up designs on the van ready to go out. We aim to please where we can!!
Sorry for the short post today but normal service will hopefully resume in the morning.
Best wishes and if you are with someone, enjoy each other's company, if you are not then enjoy the freedom of your own company (Or curl up with the dog/cat and wine!)
