Dorset wedding, Horton village…

Proper country garden Dorset wedding this weekend at Horton village hall….. Rustic wooden trestle tables laid with vintage china and stacks of old leather bound books. 100s of small herb jars, bound in rustic brown string, were packed full of home grown country flowers and scattered through the centre of each table. The room smelt amazing with fresh rosemary stuffed napkins with cute rustic copper key name places laid out on vintage china plates. I loved the Clashy bride and bridesmaid bouquets heavily scented with sweet peas and country garden yumminess, ummmmmmmm!

Gold & silver candelabras…

A little bit of fun with the Linen & Lace girls and Charlotte Bryer-ash…… I love working with these guys…. Linen & Lace have just got a whole new range of gold candle sticks and gold candelabras for this years wedding season. We decided to make them look pretty and get Charlotte, our best mate photographer, to come in and take some snaps…. I couldn’t resist grabbing one of their silver candelabras while I was there, doing an all foliage arrangement smelling gorgeous with lots of scented rosemary and packed full of textured foliage. Bang on trend for this years wedding season and I just LOVE foliage!

Sopley Mill foliage wedding…

Amazing Sopley Mill wedding this weekend….. I love an all foliage wedding, bang on trend and just stunning. A beautiful selection of eucalyptus foliages with variegated ivy and soft delicate asparagus fern created the look on the beams. A mass of jam jars and glass globes filled with tea lights hung amongst the foliage for a romantic cosy glow. The tables mimicked the beams using tall glass storm lanterns with chunky white church candles and a scattering of foliage around the bottom. These were kept simple letting the beams be the star of the show. The bride embraced the theme of her wedding donning an all foliage bouquet with lots of scented rosemary, silky silver senecio leaves, textured white ranunculus and a touch of white veronica, all finished off with trailing white ribbons.

‘Love My Dress’ wedding flower blog…

Its always nice to have your wedding flowers featured on a major blog like ‘Love My Dress’. As I was browsing the blog I came across one of my weddings from last year… This was a very chilled out affair in Lyme Regis. They had a small marquee situated at the family home with stunning views over Lyme Regis bay. White paper bunting adorned the roof of the marquee with simple jars of flowers on mass. Her dress was just stunning from Halfpenny in London. The flowers had to be simple to compliment the dress but also have a country feel to reflect the cosy garden setting for the wedding. I think you’ll all agree she looks just stunning and very happy too. Follow the link to read ‘Love My Dress’ blog…

Spring in Southbourne…..

If you’ve ever visited Southbourne you’ll undoubtedly heard of the fabulous micro pub ‘The Wight Bear’ . This awesome place sources all food and drinks from local producers only resulting in some very cool branding on their drinks labels….. Having chatted to the owners , who expressed a desire for spring,  it was rude not to hang them from the ceiling for all to see with a touch of spring in each one…

We met Clair and clicked immediately

We met Clair and just clicked immediately with her. She had prepared ideas based on our description of the wedding and she was one of the few suppliers we met who genuinely tailored her approach as soon as she got the brief.

She is an extremely talented artist

Even after my own wedding over a year ago I still follow Clair on all her social medias... seeing her new work with other brides and feeling like she keeps re-investing herself, nothing is ever alike! She is an extremely talented artist.

Very responsive and flexible

Clair is extremely passionate about what she does, which is highly infectious... She knows her craft and is very responsive and flexible to additional ideas... Everyone commented that they were the most stunning wedding flowers they'd ever seen!
