Early in September, we had the immense pleasure of providing and styling flowers for Alex and Callum's late summer wedding at the beautiful, intimate country wedding venue, Larpool Mill.
Larpool Mill is a restored 1800's flour mill, a beautiful hidden gem located on the outskirts of Whitby and set within ¾ acres of private land. The mill is surrounded by beautiful un-touched woodland and the soft sounds of a beck that runs by. It has been lovingly and sensitively restored by its owners and now provides a magical spot for couples to get married.
Alex and Callum were a dream to work for. From the start, there was a mutual trust that allowed us to work creatively, whilst honouring the couple's desires for certain colours, forms, shapes and themes. Alex was keen for dried flowers and grasses to be incorporated into her day - and she adored the bright and bold colours of Autumn.
We spent the day prior to the wedding setting up as the family bustled about preparing for the big day. This included hanging our home-grown hops around the arbour, creating beautiful floral table decor for an intimate meal after the ceremony, styling the ceremony space with meadow inspired installations, creating floral dog collars, producing buttonholes and multiple bouquets, some for gifts for the guests, and one beauty of an arrangement for the bride herself.
We hand-delivered Alex's bouquet on the morning of her wedding the next day. It truly was a very touching and moving experience for us - there were joyful tears shed by Alex, her mum and both of us too.
We are so incredibly grateful to this lovely couple for allowing us this wonderful opportunity. Thank you both Alex and Callum, we are beyond delighted to have played a small part in your precious day.

Our immense thanks to the absolutely wonderful Yorkshire wedding photographers, Bailey & Mitchell, for so kindly allowing reproduction of these beautiful photographs. We highly recommend this lovely talented duo for anyone looking for a wedding photographer of their own.
We also highly recommend wedding celebrant, and Larpool Mil wedding co-ordinator, Penelope Jayne, if you are looking for someone to officiate your ceremony. Penny is so lovely and calm and it was an absolute pleasure to spend time chatting with her as we spent the day setting up.
