Vicky’s wedding ceremony and reception were held in The Judge’s Lodgings in Lincoln’s Bailgate. A lovely venue for an intimate gathering of close friends and family.

The light blue and ivory theme was carried through all designs with ivory gerberas and blue Nigella being the focus flowers.

Added into the ceremony table long and low were stallion chrysants, gyp and eucalyptus, ruscus and pistach foliage.

A bay tree was placed either side the table to frame the window area.

The chair covers and bows were once again supplied by the wonderful Emma at Elegant Touches and I supplied an ivory gerbera with a diamante pin to place in the bows.

There was also a small design on the fireplace surround along with swagging from Elegant Touches.

The Wedding breakfast was in the dining room and the guests sat around a U shaped table. (The chairs would be brought across after the service while photos were being taken)

The flower decorations were kept low with these gorgeous small candelabras with ivory taper candles. The displays were once again gerberas, Nigella and gyp with mixed foliage. The ceremony flower display would also be brought through and sit on the top table.

Jane and I only spoke at The Bailgate wedding fayre and produced a quick sketch of the layout and confirmed details by email. She was happy to leave the designing to me with colour and main flowers being guided by her.

The ceremony table at The Judge’s Lodgings sits in front of the doors out to the garden and is a lovely space to say your vows.

Jane wanted a design to fill the front of the table in her choice of colours, burgundy and ivory that included roses. To fill ot the design I also added campanula, astilbe and stallion chrysants with a mix of foliage.

In each of the 3 windows we had a pedestal design on a hired white stand in a mix of roses, delphiniums, campanula, carnaions, alstroemeria and chrysants and various foliage. These would be taken into the reception room while the happy couple posed for photos.

In each of the chair sashes Jane asked if I could attach a single ivory rose with a diamante pin in the centre.

In the wedding breakfast room there is this gorgeous ornate side table which was adorned by its own long and low design to match the ceremony table.

The Wedding breakfast table. Everyone was to be seated around one long table and Jane asked for the central space to be filled with flowers. She also liked the candelabra I had at the wedding fayre and so we added two of these to the table design.

The crystal gem chimney candelabras had ivy running up the stand and onto the arms so they blended in with the long design. On each of the four arms hung a single red Naomi rose with a crystal diamante pin hung from differing lengths of crystal beads.

The central flower display was made to match the other long and low designs and were made in separate lengths, each a design in itself as all the flowers were to be given away as gifts to special guests.

The chairs would be brought in from the ceremony room while photos were taken outside.
