Old School Glamour Photoshoot - Save The Date Magazine

We were recently asked by the lovely girls at Save the Date Magazine, if we would like to take part in their glamourous photoshoot set in the stunning grounds of the Langley Priory estate. Of course we would, and we are delighted to show the finished images.
The wedding flowers were around a raspberry and pale blue colourtheme, with a touch of vintage glamour thrown in! My aim was to make the flowers appear timeless, and im really happy with the result.

Woodland Wedding - Rosliston Forestry Centre

Have received these lovely images from talented photographer Clive Blair of a wedding we did back in June within the woodland of Rosliston Forestry Centre. This is a special place to me & I spend alot of me time there walking my pooch, so was thrilled when Elisabeth booked us for her woodland inspired wedding. The whole theme was to be in keeping with the natural surrounding, using lots of textured materials such as moss, twigs, with orchids being the highlight flower.
Elisabeth opted for a simple phalenopsis trailing bouquet, with her bridesmaids holding textured posies which we surrounded with a birch collar. The little flowergirl held a pomander of moss and dendrobium orchids...

Buttonholes of dendrobium orchids

At the venue we decorated 4 arches with moss, twigs, orchids, seedheads, the list goes on! 

We continued the theme for the tables, a moss runner for the top table shown below, and a grouping of phalenopsis plants on a moss centrepiece for the guests.

Sadly the weather wasnt great, a typical wet British summers day, however wedding planner Carmen did a fantastic job of ensuring it all went smoothly - not an easy task for an outdoor wedding during a very wet weekend!  
Thankyou again to Clive for the great images. 
If you would like more inspiration of woodland weddings, have a peek at our fabulous woodland wedding photoshoot we did earlier in the year.

Vintage Wedding Flowers - Prestwold Hall

I absolutely love the colour combinations of these flowers that we provided back in July for Amys wedding at Prestwold Hall. The bride wanted a vintage look, with subtle muted colours that would also compliment the beige/nude coloured bridesmaid dresses. We opted for David austin Keira roses, memory lane roses, hydrangea, stocks, astrantia just to name a few! 
We filled mismatched containers with complimenting flowers and grouped them together for the centrepieces, and placed clusters of gypsophlia on the ceremony chairends and table setting.

An Autumn Anniversary

This time last year, I was getting ready to be florist & bridesmaid to my not so little brother Michael, who tied the knot with his lovely lady Jo. It was a lovely day, the flowers were centered around mango cala lilies & cherry brandy roses - jo's favourites, with all the other arrangements along an autumnal theme - to be inkeeping with an October 1st wedding .... however it turned out to randomly be one of the warmest days of the year, we were all outside until midnight, it was fabulous! So here are some of the images to celebrate. Happy Anniversary Mike and Jo, love you lots xx
