Wedding Wednesday - Carlie's Bright Country Garden Flower Celebration

  Carlie and her man got married at the end of May – for me a time when the gardens are bursting with summer colour.

The […]

Wedding Wednesday - Louise and Lewis Blush and White Wedding

  I think blush and white is one of those colour palettes of which I will never tire. It’s the perfect romantic tone – not too much white and just the right amount of pink without going super girly. Its like a grown up romance novel translated into colours. All the tenderness you want with just the right amount of sexy.   Louise and Lewis married at the ever-beautiful Wasing Park back in April. The flowers were a seasonal affair, which works so well at this venue. Louise trusted us to go to town on the flowers and so in […]

A Tour of Columbia Road Flower Market

A two minute tour of Columbia Road Flower Market Believe me when I say I could have easily spent the whole of Sunday filming and snapping the toing and froing of London's second most famous flower market. I'm used to heading off in the small wee hours to Covent Garden Flower Market, but haven't ventured up on a Sunday jaunt to Columbia Road Flower Market for some time. Its not that I haven't wanted to, its just time runs away! For me Columbia Road has a lot more soul than Covent Garden, and although its not geared up towards florists, […]

February - Journal

  Spring flowers (well almost) Today is the first day I've really walked outside and thought 'SPRING!' There's a warmth in the air and that feeling that the days are once again getting longer. Today the shop feels like a euphony of spring with the most wonderful of scents and colours, so much so that I couldn't help but down tools and take some snaps of what we've got going on. The anemones are totally stealing my heart at the moment, the brighter the better! The power of colour at this time of year is crucial - I think it […]

January - Journal

The frost is in the air and as long as there are blue skies I'm happy. I sit and write this whilst trying to cajole the little guy to bed. My efforts, are however, wasted, and secretly I'm quite happy sitting by the fire just that little longer. January. The month of fresh starts, resolutions, hunkering down and comfort food. On tonight's menu, pie - not the homemade version because today I've been flouncing around doing my flowery thing. January gets a bad rep for flowers, but I have to admit its one of my favourite times. The clear down […]
