Christmas Wreath Workshops 2016

I hope you have all enjoyed yourselves.. I certainly have...well done to all you ladies (sadly no gents this year...!) who have created their own wreath. We have had more than ever to choose from from bright pink neon birch twigs and rose gold sparkly thistles, to dried hydrangea and traditional cinnamon stick bundles.  Not to forget our favourite birds.  I am always amazed that there is never one the same!  Here is just a couple of pictures for you.  A lot of people have asked about Easter workshops, I'm thinking and will get back to you in the New Year!

Anna and Charlie's London Wedding

Anna and Charlie married in the Grosvenor Chapel on a beautiful September day.  We had the pleasure of providing the bouquets for the beautiful bride and her lovely flower girls.  A simple and striking colour scheme of white and green with hints of blue.  An abundance of hydrangeas which are at their best at this time of year, a good starting point for any September wedding.  Also featuring white avalanche roses, akito roses, lisianthus, gypsophila and seeded eucalyptus.

A Beautiful City Wedding

I love spring weddings!  The choice of flowers you have available to you is endless and suit every colour scheme imaginable.  Katherine and Alistair were married in London last month at Temple Church and chose to have their reception under the railway arches.  We were asked to fill the church with daffodils and design arrangements to give the look of window boxes bursting with spring blooms to go at the front of the church. Hopefully future brides can take some inspiration from the following pictures kindly supplied by the talented Jonny Donovan (www.jonnydonovan.com)

A few words from the bride.....

"We have had so many emails and phonecalls since the wedding from people saying how utterly wonderful the flowers were and praising your skills. Temple church looked better than it has ever looked before. It was super to walk through the door and navigate between the two beacons of yellow daffodils and up to the altar and those magnificent planters."

"The bouquet, posies and stick posies were marvellous and really brought spring to the day. The cake looked spectacular and the profusion of daffodils in Ev were truly breathtaking. It was as I hoped x 1000 times better."
