Rowton Hall: Blue Orchid Collaboration

Rowton Hall: Blue Orchid Collaboration

Blue Orchid and Wirral Wedding House Collaboration

The collaboration shoots with The Blue Orchid Boutique and The Wirral Wedding House are going from strength to strength.
Here we are at the wonderful  Rowton Hall Hotel, Chester.  One of our favourite wedding venues, a beautiful elegant country hotel with landscaped gardens to enjoy the outdoors in.  We were here recently for Lauren and Craig’s real life wedding – also with some of our Blue Orchid Suppliers.
The theme for this shoot was neutral and lace, a contrast to our last one with its bright colours.

Just look what was created by our fabulous team!  This really is a tremendous example of how we can inspire each other and you as a bride to be for a wedding theme and see it all come together beautifully from like-minded quality suppliers.

Caroline , a previous real Pixsmiths bride,  was visiting the UK just in time to gladly offer to model for us and she looked exquiste in the bridal gown and lace edged veil, supplied by Stephanie and Jennifer of The Wirral Wedding House.  Cheryl of Pink Sherbert Designs and Claire of Moo Roo stationery  created invitations place cards, menus, table numbers and a large A1 seating plan. Even adding little tags to Sue’s cake pops with beautifully embellished lace and ribbon perfectly matching the theme.  The designs incorporated a layered lace effect – a combination of real lace and printed lace with luxurious over-sized satin ribbon bows and opulent hand-finishings – sparkly, but also simple pearls showing the versatility of their work. Colours were neutrals, different shades of ivory with champagnes and golds running through.

The cup cakes with their delicate lace edging looked almost too good to eat and the wedding cake was a triumph from Sue of Bella’s Cake Pantry.  The cake pops and  heart shaped biscuits with matching ruffle and lace icing make tasty wedding favours too.

Katey from Blue Orchid Boutique surpassed herself with the gorgeous bouquet and huge centre pieces using cream and white stock, astilbe, faith, quicksand, Avalanche and sweet Avalanche roses.  Ribbons, lace and diamante on the bouquet handle made it look so elegant.Vintage pink waterfall hoods with lace overlays and origami flower embellishment on ivory Lycra chair covers graced the chairs and complemeted the entire setting. and perfectly demonstrating her venue dressing skills. Oh and just look at the ribbon and origami flower fringe skirt which decorated the cake table – how clever is Anne to think of that! Anne also crafted wands with ribbons, bells and lace – flower girls will love these!

Dave and Sandy were in their element photographing all this gorgeousness – just a selection shown below to give you an idea

A big thank you to the owners and management of Rowton Hall Hotel for making their beautiful venue open to us.

We really enjoy getting creative with these styled shoots and even more so with your wedding plans to create your perfect theme and day for you.

Venue – 30 James Street – Home of the Titanic

It showcases brilliantly how we can all combine to give you a bespoke co-ordinated theme and look to your day and all be prettily photographed for those lasting memories.
The inspiration for this shoot first came from  Cheryl of Pink Sherbert Design’s gorgeous stationery – the Ava collection –  with hues of coral and navy, very contemporary.
All the suppliers had great enthusiam for this sheme and each took it on board to bring about the stunning co-ordinated look. We think flowers around a table plan are totally on trend and look amazing.  Sue’s cake was equally gorgeous and matched the theme perfectly. Our thanks to 30 James St, home of the titanic, a stunning Liverpool city centre location, for thie hospitality.
