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 Chelsea Flower Show has graced our screens and everyone who's anyone is thinking about flowers! If I were to marry again, May would be my month. The peonies are just popping up, delphiniums are in full swing and sweet peas have burst onto the scene with all the scent and wow you’d expect.   Carlie’s brief was a perfect cacophony of colour – blues, whites, oranges and just a smidge of zesty green. 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, […]
