Getting back to the blog and sharing what we have been up to has been on the to do list for a long time. And we are so excited to finally be back sharing after an amazing wedding season! We have lots of beautiful weddings to share with you, and up first is Emma and Dane.
Emma and Dane chose Escrick Park Estate to hold their wedding ceremony and reception. Escrick Park is a beautiful venue in a peaceful and tranquil parkland setting. Their ceremony took place in an outdoor woodland ceremony space, an intimate and atmospheric clearing beneath 18th century oak trees. The vows were exchanged beneath the organic styled archway created using dried oak branches, which is a permanent feature of the ceremony area.
The Flower Arrangements
The arch was decorated in a natural and organic style using a mix of fresh foliage and flowers, and dried flowers. Flower used include roses, chrysanthemums, carnations and gypsophila. Foliage included eucalyptus and grasses. The dried flowers include pampas, dried wild grasses, mini pampas, wheat, bunny tails, branches and dried cardoon thistles.
The arrangements begin at the floor and "grow" from the ground in a natural meadow style. They then reach up the sides of the arch incorporating the natural shape of the structure.
Guests are seated on rustic benches built from of wood planks and tree logs. Along the walk up the aisle the ends of the benches were decorated with mini meadow arrangements in the same style as the archway ceremony to tie the whole theme together. Using aisle flowers in this style enable them to be utilised twice adding to their value, following the ceremony the meadows were placed in the centre of the tables and used as centrepieces.
Thank you for taking the time to read this weeks blog, we had such an amazing time decorating this ceremony space and hope to go back to Escrick Park Estate again soon!
