WEDDING FLOWERS PAPAKATA, ESCRICK PARK, YORK

Tuesday 16th April 2013

Amy had chosen soft muted colours for her bridal flowers and carried an all round bouquet made with roses, astrantia, lilac, and lily of the valley.
She came in to see her bouquet the day before her wedding and absolutley loved it.
Amy and her Mum had been collecting lots of glass jars which they had decorated themselves - some with raffia, ribbon, hessian and buttons - they looked great. We filled these with a mixture of flowers and dotted them along the tables in the Papakata. They looked really good and suited the Papakata perfectly.

WEDDING FLOWERS AT THE HOSPITIUM, YORK

Tuesday 5th March 2013

Two visits to The Hospitium, York last week. One to decorate the venue for a conference with colourful spring flower arrangements and the second to decorate the pillars for Michelle's wedding on Saturday. A gorgeous venue anyway but looks even better with beautiful flowers.

WEDDING FLOWERS AT THE MARRIOTT HOTEL, YORK

Tuesday 5th March 2013

A white wedding for Bridgit who had chosen to carry a beautiful heart shaped bouquet made with twigs and cream/white flowers including roses, ranuncula, tulips, lilac and lily of the valley. She absolutely loved it!
Her bridesmaids carried all round posies made with orange roses, spray roses, ranuncula and wax flower, really bright and colourful!

WEDDING FLOWERS AT CEDAR COURT HOTEL, YORK

Tuesday 5th March 2013

Lauren and Ross had taken every possible detail into consideration whilst planning their wedding to make sure that everything was absolutely perfect for their big day.
Due to Lauren and Ross working away, we only managed to meet with them on a couple of occasions so most of our consultations had been done by email, Lauren sending us loads of images of everything she had ordered, her and her bridesmaid's dresses, biscuits, sashes etc and she had images of all the flowers she loved.
She had chosen to have our new tall silver candelabras, opulently decorated with a garland of roses for her table decorations.

Lauren had an image of a candelabra that she loved and secretly we think she was a little worried that her candelabras might not look as good as the picture. Needless to say her doubts were swept aside when she saw what we had made for her - as you can read in the lovely email she has sent to us.

"I just wanted to say thank you thank you thank you. I know you have gone above and beyond and have been very generous with the amount of flowers you put into each arrangement so thank you very much. Your work is very much appreciated and we are so happy we found you. I don't think anybody could have done what you have done for us, you really made our day."

WEDDING FLOWERS GRAYS COURT, YORK

Tuesday 5th March 2013

It was the first wedding this year at Grays Court on Saturday and the staff there had decorated the trees outside beautifully with candles in lanterns which we're sure would look even better in the dark evening.
This was just a small wedding for us, bridal bouquet and buttonholes all made with white roses.
We had never met the bride and groom and all the requirements had been done by email - just goes to show how easy it can be.

WEDDING FLOWERS YORK MAZE, ELVINGTON, YORK

Tuesday 5th March 2013

We were back at York Maze to meet one of our brides-to-be, Harriet, yesterday. Harriet is getting married here next month and we discussed all her requirements and can't wait to decorate this fab venue for her. It's one of our favourite places, the staff are lovely and they let you do more or less anything you want to put your own stamp on the building - not only that it's so handy for us - just 5 minutes away.

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR WEDDING FLOWERS

Tuesday 26th February 2013

It is a really good idea, when you discuss your wedding flowers with your florist, to see where you might be able to get as much use as possible from your flower arrangement. For example, as in Debbie and Matt's wedding, use your flower arrangements in the ceremony room and then ask your venue staff to move them into the reception room for table decorations. Another idea for church weddings is to ask your ushers to untie pew ends and these can then be re-placed eg laid across the top table or tied onto the backs of chairs, also pedestal arrangements can also be re-positioned in your venue. You could always ask your florist to do this for you but there would probably be a charge for this.
