Beth and Paul, The Rutland Arms Hotel, Bakewell - Succulents and Spring Days
Today we are bringing you a real wedding from April this year which took place at The Rutland Hotel in Bakewell. Beth and Paul wanted a low key, intimate wedding so this venue provided the perfect place for such a day. The surroundings provided a great backdrop for the photographs too which you will see below.
Moving on to the bride's bouquet, the colour palette was pale, soft, muted nude tones with champagnes, creams and whites in a hand tied design with a little softness. As you'll see from the gorgeous shots, Beth wanted succulents in her bouquet and you can watch T chat about this trend on our YouTube Channel just click on this link. Using Beth's brief, T decided to on 'Vendella' roses, senecio, brunia, tulips, hyacinths, ranunculus, lisianthus and Yorkshire lavender.
For the bridesmaids, Beth chose to have smaller versions of her own bouquet, T made sure she used the Yorkshire lavander in there to compliment the gorgeous dusky purple bridesmaids dresses. Beth and Paul chose a classic focal design for the buttonholes.
The mantle piece flowers were a stunning addition to the venue with long and low designs reflecting with subtle colour pallet.

This wonderful email popped up in T's in box, which we just had to share ...
Thanks for reading
Paul and I have just got back home and to reality after our honeymoon and wanted to send you a big thank you for such wonderful flowers on our wedding day in early April.
I can't describe how beautiful they were, they were just perfect.
We adored the colours, I know I tortured myself for months over not having a theme or specific colour scheme but the design and the flowers just bought everything together. You seem to have a wonderful way of knowing brides better than they know themselves! They bought that large room to life and made it look so elegant, everyone keeps mentioning how amazing they were!
I can't thank you enough. The flowers were the only thing I wanted from the day (apart from marrying Paul...mustn't forget that one!) and you just surpassed everything I could've imagined. Thank you for everything, you and your team are absolute gems.
I've attached a couple of pics from Tom Hodgson Photography with the flowers in (hopefully I have attached them right!).
Thank you so much, I can't say it enough!!
Beth & Paul Thompson
Isn't that just lovely? I'm feeling all warm and toasty!
