I have to start by saying that this wedding was a little different to any other I’ve ever done. The reason? Because it was my big brother and (so excited to be able to say this!) sister-in-law’s big day.
After two postponements due to Covid, Liam & Bethany were finally able to tie the knot just how they envisioned it on 11th June 2022. I held a number of titles that day – sister of the groom, maid of honour for the beautiful bride, and florist. I was honoured, emotional and excited (and ever so slightly stressed – haha!) and it was one of the best days of my life.
Throughout the date changes, Liam & Bethany always remained certain about the look they wanted for their wedding. Whites, ivories, peaches, a pop of orange, sage green and lots of foliage. From a September autumnal version, to an early spring version, to what would eventually be an early summer version, they stuck to that plan and it was such a fantastic colour scheme to work with.
We managed to catch the last of the peonies this season and get some amazing Duchess ones in there, which paired perfectly with the peach avalanche roses, spray roses, thistles, an abundance of different eucalyptus and a hint of soft ruscus. The wedding flowers were full of colour and texture, and as a florist it really was a dream come true to work on.
After their beautiful ceremony at St Matthew’s in Lightcliffe we moved onto Crow Nest Golf Club (every single one of us covered in confetti!) for speeches, the meal and to dance the night away! Gemma and the team there were outstanding and made the day run so smoothly and perfectly.
All the photos below are from the talented Hamish Irvine who captured Liam & Bethany’s day. Not only did he get the most amazing photos, but he was an absolute joy to be around all day. He was with us from early doors right through to the evening, and his energy never waivered for a second. If you’re still on the lookout for your photographer, I urge you to get in touch.
