COUPLE: CARLY & MIKE
DATE: 12TH AUGUST 2016
VENUE: CROOK HALL & GARDENS
Carly & Mike had a super relaxed day at the amazing Crook Hall and Gardens which sits in the heart of Durham city centre but is actually a beautiful collection of seven gorgeous gardens.
They came to me to help with styling the day from the initial design, sourcing wedding decorations, setting up on the day as well as providing all the flowers for the bridal party and the guest tables.
The weather was kind enough on the day to allow for both the ceremony and wedding breakfast to be held outside. We dressed the gazebo outside with trailing ribbons in rainbow colours and dressed the chairs lining the aisle to match.
Carly & Mike wanted to reflect themselves as a couple (which I always recommend) and so we incorporated a musical theme using records and tables named after their favourite albums.
They wanted a bright colour scheme inspired by their weeding cake so we picked up these colours with giant balloons and also in the flowers we used.
We made flower crowns for Carly and all her bridesmaids that complemented their bouquets.
Mike and the groomsmen had gorgeous dahlia boutonnieres.
I loved styling this wedding, it was such fun working with a fantastic couple and the venue is an absolute gem.
