Looking back on the weddings we have been involved with I remember Annie and Thomas’ big day. Here is my blog on what was a beautiful Railway Station and Ice Cream Parlour wedding.
From just a short phone call with Annie I was able to envision what kind of flowers she was after. The fact that the venue and reception were so ‘different’ from others said to me that this bride and groom wanted to bring their own individual personalities to their ceremony and celebration.
Married at the restored Victorian Railway Station ‘The Garden Station’and then reception at Wheelbirks Ice Cream Parlour in Stocksfield, Northumberland. You get an idea from the photographs here just how fitting their choices in venue were. How often do the words Railway Station and Ice Cream Parlour wedding get mentioned in the same sentence? Not often I bet.
Annie’s dress was an original 1950’s ‘Audrey Hepburn’ style which suited her perfectly. Her bouquet was loose and natural and with touches of yellow. Cream Avalanche Roses, White Lisianthus, Baby’s Breath and greenery. The bright yellow of the Craspedia adding a touch of difference and fun.
The red Hypericum berries and the yellow Solidago we carried through to the boutonnieres and corsages and gave a beautiful rustic and natural feel. Boutonnieres we tied with a natural Jute. As you can see it went very well against the navy blue of Thomas’ suit.
Thomas was a very handsome groom and Annie a very beautiful bride.
Annie told me after the wedding that they were able to take pressings from the flowers on the day as a reminder.
One of the most memorable things from the day was working in one of the cow sheds at Wheelbirks while we made up the table arrangements. It was fun and certainly a very different place to work. The staff at Wheelbirks were very friendly and helpful and served us some gorgeous cake and ice cream before we left.
We were honoured to be a part of Annie and Thomas’s wedding day and we wish them both a beautiful, long and happy marriage together.
Many thanks to The Twins Weddings Photography for letting us use their beautiful images from the day.
