Christchurch wedding fair…

A very exciting start to the year with Christchurch harbour hall wedding fair… Spring was most certainly in my mind when I created these cute little designs with watering cans and rustic bouquets. This hanging heart literally has so many uses, my favourite place is to have one hanging on the front door of your chosen venue to greet your guests on arrival. I also love the cute little candles wrapped in lace and ribbon. Its the finishing touches that make your wedding bespoke to you.

Sopley Mill wedding…

Clair provided all the wedding flowers for my wedding in December and I was so impressed with everything she did. From the initial consultation where she provided loads of ideas and helped shape mine into something affordable, to the ease in which she altered my order when I had some issues with the church.

She wasn’t fazed when I introduced her to my dog and asked for flowers to be provided for him as well! My husband and I were so pleased with all the flowers, she delivered everything on time to numerous locations including decorating Sopley Mill and my bouquet was still going strong when we returned from honeymoon 2 weeks later!

I would whole heartedly recommend Clair she was just so lovely.

Christmas wreath at the ‘Larder House’ Southbourne…

The Fabulous Larder House in Southbourne… Up stairs the luxurious Library, a must see cocktail bar, has a very ‘hunting lodge’  theme to it. I was asked to create a very large wreath to adorn their wall all year round. And so I set to work… Rustic tree branches wound around a barrel ring, you get the scale now, and packed with moss. Pheasant and peacock feathers along with rustic pine cones and dill heads were clustered around the wreath keeping it subtle and sympathetic to its surroundings. To finish some good old apple and orange slices giving a nod to the festive time of year.

New Forest foraged autumn wreaths

New Forest autumn wreaths… I just adore this time of year, how the leaves on the trees change colour in their last desperate attempt to store food for the winter. Dormant heather springs to life in the New Forest and the last of the summer sunsets in the sky gives me stacks of inspiration for this years wreath designs. My favourite is the heather and maple leaves…

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.

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.

An excellent creator of floral masterpieces

Clair instinctively knew what flowers to use based upon my brief... She is calm, relaxed, professional and discrete... An excellent creator of floral masterpieces which brought tears of joy to my eyes.
