Un charmant plus la noce...

A most charming wedding it was.

The ceremony took place at home. Unfortunately we had a torrential downpour and there was no cover from the rain ! Tom and Shauna had decided earlier in the day to continue with plans for an outdoor ceremony hoping the rain would cease, even for the briefest moment. No such luck I'm afraid. So there we were setting up in the rain.

On the one hand it was quite refreshing and a relief as we have been experiencing the most humid weather . On the other, I can only imagine it must have made for a very quick ceremony and a mad dash back into the house for champagne and air conditioning ! Though sounds like fun to me because as some of you know I love rain !

Unfortunately, we didn't snap any pics from the backyard as the rain slowed us down and we had to make haste to the reception for set up.

Thankfully the reception was held indoors at a local restaurant. I love the vibe of this room. You almost feel you are in Paris (if you don't look out the window). The exposed brick, the crisp white linens, simple table setting and the light streaming through the room was so pretty.

Flowers included garden roses, stocks, wild carrot, lisianthus and dahlias

The style was loose and seasonal with a vintagey feel.

A small intimate affair with family and friends....forty or so. Perfect.

Pretty room.

Bouquets in various shades of pinks, greens and creams.

Shauna (the bride) wanted a simple, charming yet chic look.

This was the large bouquet that David quickly snapped inside the house.The colours are a little off here. However, these flowers really shone on the corner of the large wooden, marble topped bar at the restaurant. Wish I could have gotten a picture, but guests had started to arrive when we got there.

And a quick snap of the whimsical wreath for the front door

Classic style at Graydon Hall Manor

Graydon Hall Manor is one of the prettiest venues in the city. I love doing weddings here.

These photos were taken in the romantic little chapel inside the manor. This was a small affair with family and close friends held on a recent Sunday morning. The flowers were sumptuous and lush and arranged into a classic bowl shaped urn. I love these urns.

Sumptuous summer urns

I love this style of arrangement for a summer wedding. Classic, romantic, naturally arranged. Just all round gorgeous.

Intoxicating scents Part II

Some of you may recall my post last Christmas about purchasing my first ever Diptyque candle, Pomander. It was utterly delicious and lasted quite a long time. I am definitely hooked.

So, I recently picked up another Diptyque candle. This time I bought Baies (berries) and again, it is super, super lovely. Incredibly subtle and sweet, the perfect scent for this time of year.

I also love the look of the candle partcularily the label's design and font. It feels positively luxurious and looks very pretty sitting on our mantle.
