The love duo… Nina and Rob, were married Sat 7th March 2020 at Brinkburn Priory.
This was my first time at Brinkburn Priory, and it definitely didn’t disappoint! Wow! The venue was stunning. The Priory and manor House are a part of the National trust.
It offers the priory or the manor house for your ceremony and they also have a tepee for the reception. The accommodation was also gorgeous! As soon as I found out that Margarita Hope was the photographer I jumped with joy as her photographs are amazing! All the photographs featured in this blog are her work… thank you so much!!!
Nina and Rob chose to marry in the manor house which was intimate, beautiful and full of character. The stone crumby walls were amazing and the set up was just perfect.
I met Nina at A Wedding Less Ordinary a year or two ago… the first thing she said was “can you please pencil my date in, this is exactly the style I want!”. So, I did. Nina then came for the consultation and after a few discussions about how to best use the flowers to fit their budget her and Rob confirmed the booking... Yey!!!
Nina and Rob choose a neutral colour pallet. Consisting of whites, and a hint of blush with greenery.
I was so pleased with the reaction when Nina saw them on the day!!! She loved them and cried a little with happiness. I was over the moon!
The flowers they required on the day was Nina’s bride bouquet, 3 bridesmaids, buttonholes and corsages, a floral arch and chair end jars filled with flowers.
The beauty of deciding on these flowers were that things could move and adapt as their day evolved. The bridesmaid’s bouquets became centrepieces, the chair end jars moved to tepee décor and the floral arch after the ceremony backdrop became a prop during the reception.
The buttonholes were different slightly for all the groomsmen as they wanted to make each one special in their own way. They were tweaked slightly so they all followed the similar theme.
This lovely duo were so lovely to work with from beginning to end.
I was delighted to hear after their wedding day Nina had dried her flowers and created a floral frame and dried bouquet for her home. This is something I always tell my clients… dry some or all of your flowers if you can. It will create a lasting memory of your day. Here are some of Nina’s pictures of what she did with her flowers…
The review that Nina and Rob sent me was outstanding and I can’t thank you enough…
"Sarah – oh my god- where do I begin!!! It taken a few days to absorb it all. Our wedding day was quite simply perfect and the best day of our lives, and I can’t thank you enough for the huge part you played in that. I’m writing from our cottage on the Isle of Skye as it still all sinks in. I can’t actually put into words how talented you are. Your creative eye, passion and attention to detail shone through in everything you created for our wedding. Our bouquets made me cry when I saw them- they were so beautiful! Evie’s flower crown was so cute and she loved it! The buttonholes and corsages were perfect and tied in with everything beautifully. The manor House looked absolutely spectacular- your flower arch- wow just wow… it was breath-taking. The floral vases down the aisle just so classy and simplistically pretty. Thank you for everything. I wish you and your business a fabulous future and every success. Much love, x".
I mean I couldn’t ask for a better review could I! Thank you!
I wish you all the happiness in the world you two… keep in touch, much love, Sarah x
