A Country Garden Wedding in a Marquee

Dominique and Tim's wildlife meets country garden wedding is full of all sorts of pretty. From English grown blooms to giant flower balls. Their style has completely stolen our hearts Dominique and Tim wed in May (which is possibly my favourite flower month of the whole year) and with a little guidance we were encouraged to let our creative juices flow ... and flow they did! From some amazing English grown sweet peas through to giant flower balls that hung throughout the marquee, this wedding encapsulated the very meaning of English Country garden

Flower Club - What Flowers Do You Sell

Whether you go to market or buy your flowers online, how on earth do you decide what flowers you want to sell. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of varieties available and tons of different colours. Some florists go for the scatter gun approach - a little bit of this and a little bit of that until they have every colour under the rainbow in their arms or virtual trolley. Sure this is the way you can work, and indeed this is the way loads of florists shops around the country have run for decades, but we like to think […]

Wedding Flowers for Men - Buttonhole Recipe's for Winter

  Every man should wear flowers … and not just on his wedding day. I’m such a firm believe in this – a little nod to the seasons pinned onto ones jacket certainly gives the wearer such an air of distinction it would be a shame to limit this effect just to your wedding day.   And boys, guess what – you don’t have to wear a single rose with a teeny tiny leaf … no! The modern man dons a tiny collection of fleurs fully embracing the season. Here to inspire (as always) are 3 of our winter buttonhole […]

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 […]

Spring Urn

This beauty almost fell into my handbag on the way home today. I think it may be my favourite urn arrangement to date. These miniature metal urns are completely perfect - the right size for plants, arrangements and not too huge that they would swap a table setting for a dinner party. They are also super versatile to arrange in. Make a hand-tied bouquet, use some oasis, chicken wire (always my preference) or those funny little pin cushion flower frogs. I'm more of a chicken wire lady myself, scrunch a tiny piece up and simply just start threading your stems […]
