A Rustic French Themed Wedding in Formby

On a beautiful summers day in late July, Jenny married Nick in St Peter’s Church Formby, before inviting their guests to join them in Formby Golf Club for their enchanting ‘rustic french’ themed reception.

The bouquets were a mixture of lavender, lilac and white blooms interspersed with dried wheat, oats and poppy seed heads for a rustic french feel. Lily of the valley and delicate freesia created a heavenly scent.


Jam Jar Pew End

In the church jam jars filled with soft pink roses, lisianthus, phlox and wheat hung from the end of each pew with rustic twine.

Whist outside, heart wreaths of dainty gypsophila, freesia, lavender and wheat decorated the entrance.

At Formby Golf Club, the tables were decorated with jars and jugs filled with handtied arrangements of lavender, pink and white flowers all placed on wooden log slices.

Our vintage shabby chic candelabras were placed on wooden log slices with jam jars filled with stocks, roses and white scabiousa, with dried oats and wheat to complete the look.

It was Jenny’s finishing touches such as the french themed table names and gorgeous macaron favours that really stole the show and completed the rustic french inspired theme.

And finally, we decorated the staircase at Formby Golf Club with rustic bunches of dried lavender and wheat, tied with natural twine finished with a bow. It was lovely to see Jenny and Nick’s theme come to life in Formby Golf Club and we really enjoyed filling it with fleurs!




Nautical Wedding at The Titanic Rum Warehouse

On a blustery day last November, India and Warren tied the knot in St Thomas of Canterbury Church in Waterloo before hosting their reception at The Titanic Rum Warehouse. Every now and then a bride will come through the door with what can only be described as Epic ideas and India certainly had ideas- and vision. Here is how we made her vision come to life…

On the end of each pew was a rustic handtied of red, white and blue textured flowers and foliage, secured with natural twine.

Every pew was decorated for impact and each handtied was deconstructed and reused at the venue in tin cans, bottles and jars.

Large arrangements of burgundy and sailor blue hydrangeas were moved from the church and placed under spot lights in The Rum Warehouse.

The detail which went into transforming the venue was amazing. I am not sure if there is a more apt venue to have a boat as a photo booth along with sailor hat and pirate wig props.

The nautical flags used as bunting along with the sails suspended from the ceiling really helped fill the space.

And so to the flowers. We used muted shades of red and blue with hints of white and lots of textured greenery. Texture was a must, with white and blue sea holly and astrantia creating wild arrangements in rope handled jars.

Painted lighthouses were used as table numbers with jam jars, tin cans and bottles filled with flowers to compliment.

One of our hand made re-claimed wooden boxes decorated the top table and was filled with thistles, astilbe, hydrangea and anemones to complete the look. The things I loved about working on this wedding were the colours, the texture and the fact there wasn’t a rose in sight. I love roses but it was nice to have a week off! It was a real pleasure to work with India and hear her ideas evolve and see her vision come to life- and hats off to anyone who gets an actual boat involved in their wedding!
