St Gluvias Church, Penryn

St Gluvias church was the setting for Sue and Daren's blessing. A gorgeous church with alot of light made a welcome sight on Friday when I arrived with the pedestals and vases. I was busy finishing off the arrangements while the wedding rehersal went ahead. Sue had decided on two pedestals at the front of the aisle, one at the back facing the doorway and 2 large vase arrangements which were to be positioned near the door. However after talking to the vicar it was decided to place these on two small tables at the back of the church. The pew ends were made and hung in position Saturday just before the service.

A simple pew end of a single white rose, fountain grass, skimmia, hypericum berries and galax leaves.

The pedestals included white oriental lilies, cream roses, germinis, eustoma and stallion chrysants with red gerberas and plenty of foliage.

The flowers behind were created by the church ladies and greatly added to the floral display.

I also added to the porch 4 bowls from the reception and two baytrees, one either side the entrance. Unfortunately I never got around to taking photos as I became involved with pinning on everyones buttonhole.

Red white and gold wedding

Flowers from the wedding of Sue and Daren. Unfortunately I was so busy with the flowers I never got round to taking any photos of the ladies holding the flowers. I have been promised some though, so keep looking.

Sue's bridesmaids, of which there were four, wore gorgeous full length gold dresses, so we decided to keep the flowers neutral. I used white roses, stephanotis and veronica, gold roses, and various foliage. They were all hand tied posies with gold ribbon wrapped around the stems.

Sue's bouquet was a trailing hand tied posy but in red and white to tone in with the dress. In this I used red roses, hypericum berries, skimmia with white cymbidium orchids, lilies, roses, veronica and stephanotis. various foliage was used including fountain grass, asparagus fern and bear grass.

As I was displaying at the Judges Lodgings I was asked if I could provide a pedestal and two table posies for the mock set up of the civil ceromony room. This I was more than happy to provide.
The colour scheme given to me was white and green. The flowers I used are; Eremus, tulips, hydrangea, dahlias and amaranthus with various foliage including, asparagus fern, holly and hops.I am available to provide flowers at most venues in and around Lincolnshire and have photos of many weddings I have had the privelidge of being involved with at many venues around Lincoln. Arrangements in venues in other counties can alo be created.
