This week I am bringing you the real wedding of David and Jo. The wedding was in the beautiful countryside of Clitheroe at The Stirk House. Jo really wanted that princess wedding feel with pink and grey as her chosen colours. I worked with Jo on the design to give that princess feel but with a modern twist. We wanted it elegant and full of details that really showed their personality. I pared-back the princess feel and went with a french modern fairytale for this Clitheroe wedding.
The ceremony room was attached to a gorgeous conservatory overrun with ivy. We wanted to recreate this in the ceremony room, with lots of ivy crawling its way down the aisle and up the backdrop. Also, the venue Stirk house was chosen because of the lovely surroundings of Clitheroe.
The room also had a stunning fireplace we had to make sure we made a feature of. Again lots of greenery and of course nothing says romance more than an abundance of candles.
The wedding breakfast
We then had a quick swap over to get the room set up for the meal. While the guests enjoyed the Stirk house’s beautiful gardens with gorgeous views of Clitheroe.
This room had a stunning glass ceiling! We wanted everyone to feel as though they were sitting below the stars. We used a mixture of fairy lights and Edison bulbs from Peter Lockwood. I then wrapped it all in greenery to carry on the bringing the outside in theme.
The tables we went with grey linen tablecloths with pink chiffon runners. Jo had fallen in love with printed napkins she has seen. I went searching for some pink and gold that would match her palette. This was a real struggle! As this was her one luxury item she just knew she had to have I looked into making them for her. Luckily this process was not too hard as I already had the machines needed.
I chose gold accents for the tables including the cutlery. This made such a huge difference to the overall look of the table. It gave the luxury feel Jo wanted. By linking the gold centrepiece accents with the cutlery tied it all nicely. Gold accents and then silver cutlery on this table would have stood out and possibly looked tacky.
The florals we asked kate from perfect bouquet to use lots of pinks. With lots of textures, heights and a natural wild feel to them. She did a fantastic job and nailed the brief perfectly!

The lights above as the night crept in really offered that beautiful under the stars feel. Jo and her friends and family enjoyed a night dancing under the stars. Being entertained by DJ Coast to Coast. All photos from the fab Jo Bolton.
