Verity & Tom’s garden style wedding in the ruins of Jervaulx Abbey with Wills Marquees

I have been sitting on these images from the fantastic Ryan at Shutter Go Click for what feels like forever now! Blog writing through the summer has been put on the back burner and I am only just making my way through sharing the wedding floral fun we have had this year, so far!

Without a doubt this is one of my favourites from the year. I know I should’t have favourites, but I couldn’t help it with this one.

Verity & Tom have to be possibly some of the loveliest people I have ever met. They are contagiously lovely and the whole day was so beautiful, relaxed and intimately personal around them.

The ceremony was at St Oswald’s church at Thornton Steward, which is ancient and beautiful. It is so beautiful (although not the florist’s dream with its steep long path from the car park and no running water! Ha) However the church wardens were kindly on hand to give us a hand up the hill and had jerry cans of water ready! Amazing!

The wedding reception took place in the atmospheric ruins of Jervaulx Abbey in a beautiful traditional canvas and wooden pole Wills Marquee. It was such a beautiful setting and the sun shone all day for them in pocket of bad July weather.

I loved the colours in this wedding. Anyone who knows me knows burgundy is my favourite colour and we were allowed more than just a little touch of it here. The colour palette, the textures, the scents – it was all gorgeous. We indulged in some gorgeous garden roses sourced from The Real Flower Company along with lovely seasonal blooms from our own cutting garden and other local suppliers.

To complete Verity’s natural gathered bouquet Sian from Lancaster & Cornish created a beautiful rich crimson dye from a mood board for the wedding and voila! The most beautiful unique trailing silk ribbons! Blooming amazing! Thanks Sian. We added a raw cotton ribbon Verity had a liking for to complement.

Flowers and foliage we used; sweet peas, chocolate cosmos, black cornflowers, sweet peas, trifolum ‘rubens’, antirrihnum, Maragret Merril rose, red piano rose, Kate David Austen rose, Romantic Antike rose, Pavlova rose, Pink O’Hara rose, Princess Charlene rose, lysimachia firecracker, knautia, astrantia, foxgloves, sanguisorba, hydrangeas, stocks, amaranthus and more foraged delights.

Thanks so much to Ryan from Shutter Go Click for all the brilliant images below (I found it so hard to choose so there are quite a few! Enjoy!)

Congratulations Verity & Tom xx
