A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of being at the wedding of our lovely friends Tim and Hannah, Nathan had the scary but exciting job of being the best man (I hope he kept you calm Tim!) and I had the even more scary and exciting job of doing the flowers!
It was such a joy to celebrate with Tim & Hannah as they got married, and it was so lovely to get to know their families a little bit as well. Hannah’s mum wins the prize for the calmest mother-of-the-bride I have met, and their nieces win the prize for the cutest flower girls EVER!
The venue was the gorgeous Saltaire United Reformed Church and the reception was held just up the road at an equally impressive hall.
Hannah has great taste and had ordered some beautiful flowers to match her white and blue colour scheme. She chose a base of white roses and yellow chrysanthemums, with blue anenomies, gypsophila and greenery for accents.
This was the second wedding that I’ve done flowers for (the other one being my own!) so I was very happy with the way all the flowers turned out. Especially pleasing were the bouquets for the bride and bridesmaids, the combination of flowers that Hannah had chosen turned out so well and complimented each other really well. The buttonholes and corsages also turned out really nicely and looked great with the boys’ black suits and royal blue cravats.
For the church decorations, I did two large pedestal arrangements at the front of the church and then tied a small bouquet of flowers to each pew down the aisle. And here is a picture of the beautiful bride as she walked down the aisle! It was so lovely to see her and Tim smiling at each other for literally the whole service (and the rest of the day!). Notice the gorgeous dress which was made by one of her super talented bridesmaids, wow!! (Notice the equally lovely bridesmaids dresses also made by the same super talented bridesmaid!)
So, Mr & Mrs Hilton (aaahhh!!!!) thank you so much for letting us be a part of such a special day, I pray that your marriage will continue as it started, with lots of laughs, jokes, smiles and tenderness, and above all that you will continue to keep your eyes fixed firmly on Jesus Christ, as was so evident throughout your whole wedding day.
