From day one Becky and I clicked straight away. I had a clear vision of the look Becky wanted for her flowers. Any wedding florist in Nottingham would have loved to do her wedding flowers. She wanted vintage with dusty pinks and lilacs and a hint of purple with white for her bouquet. The pictures i got sent back from her from her wedding photographer were absolutely stunning. Her wedding dress suited her so well, and her bouquet really complimented her and the rest of the wedding decor.
Becky's Bouquet Included: Dahlias, Freesia, Roses, Wax Flower, Phlox, Lizianthus, Astrantia, Gypsophila Thistle, Thlaspi, Ornigatholium, Pittosporum and Eucalyptus.
Can i just say, the image above of Becky holding her bouquet is one of my favourite and up in my top 3. The image really focus's on her bouquet and really shouts out the textures and whole theme of her wedding.
Some bride’s don’t give their bridesmaids a choice of flowers but Becky was kind enough to let her bridesmaids have input into their bouquets. The goal was to be a little different and for the brides bouquet to stand out more (which is totally fine, i would too!). They had a bit more pink and white which helped contrast really well.
Becky's Bridesmaids Bouquets Included: Gerberas, Roses, Phlox, Gypsophila, Freesia, Pittosporum, Eucalyptus and Ruscus.
I think the the colours and textures from the bridesmaids bouquets really complimented the colour of their dresses. They had a bit more pink and more white which helped contrast really well. Becky's partner David wanted something simple for himself and his groomsmen, he went neutral with a white Rose, Gypsophila, Pittosporum and Ruscus.
In one of our appointments Becky came to me with a puzzled face not sure on what to do about her top table. She knew she wanted flowers, but she didn't want to have your average top table arrangement. I suggested, as her theme was vintage/ shabby chic, why not get a bit of texture in there and chuck a wooden crate full of flowers on the table! I remember her face lit up, she did a bit of research her self online and looked for the right shape of arrangement and how big she liked it. She sourced thin rectangular wooden crate (it was perfect for what she had in mind) she didn't want the flowers to be to over the top, and this is what i created for her.
I really enjoyed creating the flowers for the wooden crate, and all the other designs. I do appreciate a bride with good taste! What lovely pictures i got sent back, that i will love looking back on. And i do love a challenge, so when any bride comes to me and is puzzled i will help suggest things and point in the right direction.

I had the pleasure of creating some lovely designs for Kiri one of my brides last weekend. She chose some lovely flowers including Roses, Freesia's, Calla Lilies, Lizianthus, Gypsophila and gold Ruscus. The flowers had a really classy feel to them. She loved pearls so i added some pearls into the Roses. The hint of gold Ruscus really made the bouquets pop and tied everything in with her colour scheme of the whole wedding. I really enjoyed creating her flowers for her big day. Here are some pictures -
Last weekend was the busiest weekend we've had this year with 4 weekends in 2 days! One of our couples, Deborah & Andy chose blush and white for their colour scheme. They chose 'Lovely Dolomiti' Roses, white Lizianthus and Gypsophila for their flowers. The style she wanted was delicate and pretty, and it definitely showed in the flowers. Here are some pictures of their flowers -
Hi there! Emily speaking here. Just got back from setting Amy & Jason's wedding up at Woodborough Hall. Just opened the shop and set the front up outside and had a good tidy up and thought, lets write a blog post about today's wedding.
Amy and Jason are such a fun couple. Amy knew what she wanted when she walked threw my door. She loved her pink roses, lilac freesia and gypsophila and wanted these flowers for her wedding day. She had simple gypsophila bouquets for her bridesmaids and for herself had pink roses, lilac freesia and gypsophila.
They did have different flowers for their centre pieces, they wanted something simple but also statement so they went for purple hydrangeas in a vase. Simple and classy. A few weeks before their big day they decided they wanted to spruce up the ceremony room a bit by adding some flowers after previously seeing what the window looks like with flowers around it from another wedding i had done there. They had a arrangement for the ceremony table and also two flower pieces either side in the corners on the window. This really added a wow factor and tied everything in. Amy loved her flowers, i'm so pleased :)
Here are some pictures of her flowers -
