The plan of course was to hold the ceremony in the famous Gibbon Bridge Band Stand set in the luscious and exquisite gardens, we had a team of six to set up the flowers for this wedding, our team were industrious from the break of day, we also had the little dilema of would the weather hold out for an out door wedding or would we need to move everything back up to the fabulous orangery!The Registrars garland getting it's finishing touches
Pinning on the Boutonnieres was our next task and with so many guests to do Sophie & I were positioned by the entrance so we didn't miss anyone
Our Filigree Boutonnieres are very special with lots of elaborate detailing, the design was created to reflect the swirls and curls on the Ushers waistcoat
The Groom's Mum's corsage of Stephanotis and Freesia
Andrew's very special Groom's Boutonniere complete with bejewelled heart
The Brides gorgeous parents
Celosia, Darcey Roses, Mango Callas, Berries all yummy scrummy and delicious
The pedestal designs on either side of the band stand were created to be a part of the scenery to blend into the gardens
Cornucopias of Moss and Galax overflowed with fresh flowers, fruits and berries
The steps were lined with lanterns and posies of fresh flowers
The photographer for the day was the very lovely and "gentlemanly" Martin Crombie I genuinley can't wait to see his work, it's going to be amazing!
The Bridesmaids looked so beautiful
And Isobel was quite simply "Stunning"
"The cat that got the cream"
The biggest of congratulations to the fabulous Isobel & Andrew Pickering
Fresh Rose Petal confetti
The beautiful Flower Girl's Pommander was one of my favourite designs on the day
I used the most incredible flower palette for the wedding bouquet: Cerise Phalaenopsis, Magenta Curcumas, Hot Chocolate Calla Lilies, Macarena Spray Roses, Mango and Captain Romance Calla Lilies, Leucaspernum, Gloriosa Rothschild, David Austin's Darcey, Poppy Seed Head, Madame Pompadour Dendrobium Orchids, Passion Flower Trails and so much more!
The table centres were so luscious, with a three tier cake stand in the centre dripping with Curcuma Fruits, baby Pumpkins and Crab apples, Germinis, Roses, Calla Lilies and Gloriosa
On either side of the cake stand were two corncopias of moss overflowing with fresh flowers and fruits

The Top Table was groaning under the weight of fresh Orchids; Vanda, Phalaenopisis, Dendrobium and Scorpion.
This was such a magical day, we were so thrilled to be a part of it, many, many thanks to Isobel & Andrew for choosing Flower Design to style and create the flowers for this truly magnificent wedding day! xxxxxx
