Yesterday we were on location at Birtsmorton Court, here is a quick sneak peek of the gorgeous bride and groom. A dream team of wedding industry suppliers from The West Midlands collaborated on a wedding shoot, more photos to follow soon.

The button hole included a Quicksand rose, ranunculus and snippet of astilbe finished with soft peach.
Every now and then time stops still to celebrate a wonderful marriage of two people so in love. I first met Ellie and Matt when they were down in Birmingham looking at venues for their wedding. They had strong ideas on the feel they hoped to create and took time to find venues and their wedding team.
The Oratory was such a special place for the wedding ceremony and for their initmate gathering of loved ones. In contrast the urban feel of The Church Inn in Birmingham gave us scope to create a great backdrop for their wedding celebrations. They loved the Brooklyn Inspired feel of urban places. Throughout the planning Ellie was happy to let us offer advice and we worked together beautifully to create this amazing moment in time.
We were thrilled to see this wedding featured on Love My Dress recently too.
The bridesmaids wore beautiful white dresses individually chosen and we created loose half flower crowns for their hair flowers. Simple, understated but elegant bringing in soft blues, nude, white and stronger purple tones. The hair was styled by our friend Natalie at Bridal Hair Specialists.
For a simple but stunning look the girls wore beautifully created wrist corsages keeping to the tones of the day, with astrantia, wax flower and snippets of garden greenery. Ellie looked stunning in her Sarah Willard Couture designed dress.
Ellie’s bridal bouquet was designed with her dress and personal style in mind. I love brides giving us freedom to work our magic on their flowers and Ellie fell in love with her bridal bouquet. This loose hand tied design included clematis to trail, a mix of roses, astrantia, lilac, tulips, wax flower, amni and helebores with a mix of garden forages for added texture. I just love her gloves to complete her look.
The button holes were a mix of quicksand roses, wax flower, some with delicate blue snippets of hydrangea. I love this image of Matt with his button hole.
CHURCH DECORATION – CANDLES DOWN THE AISLE
The Oratory is an amazing space and candles down the aisle in all shapes and sizes create the perfect look. It felt like an Italian church with the wonderful architecture and we decided that flowers in church would not do it justice and agreed with Ellie and Matt to go all out for candlelight. The service was so personal and on entering the church the magic and love could be felt.
HAND HELD ARCH
Love this idea for a hand held arch for the couple.
For the gathering after the formal part of the day Ellie knew she wanted hanging flowers to create a wow factor over the drinks table and as a backdrop to speeches and photos. An exhuberant mix of trailing foliage, large hydrangea blooms, trailing amaranthus, tulips threaded through the frame and scented wax flowers brought the room to life.
