Vintage Dorfold Wedding

Congratulations Tom and Alice who married this month at Acton church followed by a beautiful reception at Dorfold Hall, Acton.

Dorfold Hall is one of Cheshire's best kept secrets, it is set down a long drive and rests between stunning gardens. Alice and Tom had their reception in the beautiful on site marquee.

The wedding had a very romantic and vintage feel to it throughout, with a champagne and vintage pink colour theme, and with pretty draping and fairy lights hanging from the top and curling around the poles.
Tom and Alice had long trestle tables down the marquee rather than round tables. We did lots of pretty vases and jars in different shapes, heights down each table and they looked very effective. I filled the jars with beige and pink roses, pretty pink hydrangea, cream and pink peony, gypsophilla, and lilac and lavender lisianthus. I also used lots of lovely foliage's including asparagus fern and silver eucalyptus witch finished off this feminine look.
Alice really wanted the top table to stand out from the other tables, this was obviously difficult with all the tables being the same size, we decided to wrap ivy around the vases on the top table.

I also made a country milk churn arrangement at the venue filled with country flowers including delphinium, and also decorated the amazing cheese cake with fresh flowers.

Alice went for hand tied bouquets for her and her two bridesmaids.
For her own bouquet she had mainly beige and cream roses with pink and cream peony, with lots of lovely gypsophilla, eucalyptus and asparagus fern. We did trailing lace with pearl pinks for her handle, just finishing off her bouquet. Her bridesmaids had smaller versions just without the peony.

It was a pleasure from start to finish to be involved in this wedding and working with Tom and Alice, who both live in London and came back to be married in Nantwich, Acton. Thank you for selectin me to do your wedding flowers.
