A Confession - I Dislike Pinterest!

Wow, already I feel better just writing the title of this post. Perhaps saying I dislike the whole of Pinterest is a little steep, there are some really great things about it, but equally there are some things I really hate. I figure the great things plus the hating overall balance out to a dislike.   Been in the wedding business, I should probably be raving about this crazy online pin board system. Its like a whole load of inspiration without having to buy a load of wedding magazines which publish the same stuff month after month. You've always got […]

Cliveden House Wedding Filled with Peonies

  As peony season draws to a swift close and we prepare to wave a sad goodbye to our favourite June flower I thought it was the perfect time to share these images of Emily and Jay's big day at Cliveden House wedding venue. Emily was the most gorgeous bride and with peonies featuring heavily in her brief, I knew from the start it was going to look pretty wow. Emily and Jay tied the knot at the end of June in true style at the wonderful Cliveden House wedding venue. Beautiful sweeping grounds greeted their guests with an entrance […]

Wildflower Wedding Flowers at Herons Barn

  In the height of summer meadow flowers are the order of the day. July to me is all about gorgeous bright summer flowers. When we got Natalie and Guy's brief I knew immediately which direction we should take their wedding flower. They'd chosen to tie the knot at the beautiful barn at Herons Farm - sometimes you just have to listen to the venue, and this venue cries out for the just picked relaxed vibe. Natalie's bouquet contained some of my all time favourite  flowers - peony, sweet pea, nigella, astrantia, craspedia, ammi majus ... the list goes on! […]

Peach Wedding Flowers at Danesfield House

March, you are already shaping up to be an absolute stunner! Leslie and Arkadius have been blessed with the most amazing spring sunshine for their big day at Danesfield House. As well as the sun shining down on the lucky couple, Leslie also managed to choose some of my all time favourite flowers and colour combination. Peach is still huge, especially when teamed with dashes of rose gold, metallic and just the slightest sprinkle of copper. We started planning Leslie's wedding flowers just a few months ago, with her coming to see us with tons of visual inspiration for the […]

Succulent Wedding Flowers at the Asylum London

Boy oh boy have I got some beautiful shots to show you today. Sometimes you make a bouquet that you just totally fall in love with and it becomes so super hard to give it away even to the most amazing of brides. Alice truly was an amazing bride, our paths have crossed through friends over the last 12 years and it was so lovely to receive her email asking if we'd arrange the flowers for her big day. Danny, her groom, helped us design various elements for the shop when we first opened. He is uber talented as a […]

Oh Here Cometh the Spring!

Well we may have told a small fib - Spring isn't quite on its way, but we're doing our best to jolly things up a little in the shop with tons of spring bulbs. If you're after your Spring hit, well we may just be the place to poke your nose in and have a look around. January is a funny old month. All the decorations are down, the house is looking bare. For some that's the joy of January, a fresh start, but secretly I'm yearning for the glitz and glamour of all the twinkle lights and beautiful jewel […]

Huge installations, giant wreaths, gorgeous winter plants and a whole host of beautiful foliage to adorn wreath after wreath. One of our favourite numbers leaving the shop this week is this huge gypsophilia wreath .Its completely brimming with the stuff. I think we may sneak to the owners house and take a photo of this beauty in its new home (the owner has a rather fabulous front door) I can help but think how beautiful these would look […]
