I knew I wanted the flowers to echo the homespun theme of the rest of the wedding. I also wanted the flowers to echo the stunning landscape in windswept Northumberland. I used a local florist, Helen owner of the Willow Garden in Hebden Bridge immediately understood what I wanted. We were taking everything up to the castle four days before the day itself so things had to be transportable.
I had up cycled a multitude of wine bottles throughout the previous year – a though job but somehow I powered through! So Helen provided me with two buckets of flowers that had a wild and rugged feel to them.
