With the introduction of GDPR I've basically had to start my mailing list again from scratch (thanks government!), so until I build that up again I'm going to bring you my monthly updates in the form of a blog post. If you would like to subscribe to my newsletters please fill in the form below:
Last month was fairly quiet flower-wise to start off with, but the final weekend kicked off a jam packed wedding season which doesn't start winding down now until October. I do still have a little bit of availability for the last quarter of the year so if you are still looking for a wedding florist please get in touch now!
I had two wonderful weddings the last weekend in May - Sarah and Martin in Chignal Smealey and Keeley and Graham at Hylands House. I really lucked it out with the photographers for these weddings - not only were they both super quick at getting a preview out but the photos are utterly gorgeous as well! I think I must get almost as excited as the bride and groom to see their photographs - I love seeing how the professionals capture my flowers! Check out a sneak peek below - Clare Kentish for Sarah and Martin and Danielle Smith for Keeley and Graham.
I just want to show you the church arrangement I made for Sarah and Martin - I was so pleased with how it turned out and I think it looks amazing. Plus I'll let you in on a little secret - I designed it in semi-darkness as we could only find one light switch and it only turned on a single light at the back of the church! My dad came along with me as chief ladder holder and he ended up shining his phone torch onto the arrangement so I could see what I was doing! The things we florists have to do!
I went back after setting up the venue in the hope that it would be a bit brighter in the church to take some photos but you can tell from the quality of them that the lighting still wasn't great!
What am I up to this month?
I've already had my mammoth three wedding weekend - more on that next month - but if you follow my instagram stories you'll know what happened there! I have six more weddings this month so it's still looking busy for the foreseeable future but I wouldn't have it any other way. It goes so fast so it's important for both me and the brides to enjoy the moment while it lasts.
Photo of the month
The church flowers for Sarah and Martin were one of my favourite things to make ever but Sarah's bouquet was equally gorgeous, and this photo by Clare Kentish captures it beautfully!
Thanks for reading!
