Hannah and Tim’s Rainy Day Wedding in Whitby

Our first wedding of 2023 took place on one atmospherically beautiful (rainy!) day in our gorgeous home town of Whitby, when Hannah and Tim tied the knot with a very special ceremony lead by the bride's father, in the historical chapel of St Mary's, followed by a delightful celebration and reception at Danby Castle.

Hannah chose a bouquet of seasonal, ethical flowers, bound with pure silk ribbons, and the couple collected vintage teapots to fill flowers with at their reception venue, Danby Castle.

We also provided some elegant floral decor for the church. St Mary's is magnificent Grade 1 listed building, originally constructed in the year 1110. Located on the beautiful clifftop spot that overlooks Whitby Harbour and is close to the 1999 steps, this was such an incredible location for the couple to exchange their vows.

We are so grateful to have had this opportunity to work for such a lovely couple and wish Hannah and Tim a lifetime of joy and happiness.

From the off, Philip and Annabel were so welcoming, a quick visit to say hello turned into a two hour cup of tea. We loved that the flowers are all grown by them on site and their approach to ethical and sustainable floristry seems rooted in their own values. We felt somewhat anxious when trying to find a florist due to our naivety but Moonwind immediately made us feel comfortable and gained our trust. Our trust was paid out. Philip is a true artist, he goes above and beyond and his passion for what he does is contagious. We were so happy with what they produced and couldn't recommend them more.
