When Lara contacted me almost two year before her wedding and started to tell me about her ideas for colours and flowers I knew I would absolutely adore this wedding. I loved Lara's enthusiasm and charm, and was really pleased to see how all her and Andy's hard work and plans for the wedding turned out. Lara and Andy got married in the lovely lochside town of Lochgilphead, and celebrated after the ceremony at Crear out on the west coast of Scotland. I love it out west, where bleak is beautiful and no matter how cold the sea is you want to dip your toes in anyway.
Lara chose blush pink, raspberry, blue and crisp white flowers - peonies and roses, delphiniums and stocks, gorgeous fluffy hydrangea and fragrant sweet peas. I loved the ribbon we chose for the buttonholes and pew ends - a lovely blue and white stripe. We used my collection of antique glass bottles and vintage milk glass for the flowers on the tables - every piece is different so there was a wonderful mismatched feel to the table decoration. The beautiful blue delphiniums provided pops of deep colour against the white and blush pink, and some hints of raspberry stood out too.
I'll let the pictures do the talking for the most part - Lillian and Leonard captured it so well, there's hardly ever a need for words with their pictures.
I do love it when its time to give the bride her bouquet!
This is one of my favorite pictures from the whole wedding, you can't get much better than a cuddle from your best girls.
We tied little bunches of sweet peas and rosemary on each pew end - the church smelled gorgeous.
I collected the most gorgeous frilly blue hydrangea from the market for Lara's lovely bridesmaids.
One of my favorite bottles from my little collection - an old posion bottle which reads "not to be taken"
The cakes! Oh so pretty in their little paper cases.
