Peaches looked really beautiful on her wedding day and wore a whimsical fresh flower head dress and carried a wild, just picked natural looking bouquet. This look is already very, very popular but after seeing her photos I'm sure many Brides-to Be will be requesting this look.

Looking through OK magazine it was good to see that Kym Marsh chose to carry a Carmen Rose for her bouquet made with Vendela roses. What a lovely change. We made a Carmen Rose back in April for Hannah's wedding out of red roses. It looked fab. I'm sure after seeing Kym's these are going to be a lot more popular.

We love meeting our 'Brides to be' and discussing their wedding plans and ideas. Just lately many are asking for orange/coral shades, I'm not sure why that is, but these colours will look fab, lovely and warm especially with a good variety of lush green foliage.

Another sunny warm Saturday - another lucky bride. Laid back Jane called in to our studio the day before her wedding to check out what flowers we had ordered for her bouquet.
She loved the antique pinky/green hydrangea, dahlias, snow berries and antique shaded roses that we had chosen for her flowers and we used all these to make her an all round hand tied posy. Her four bridesmaids carried simple posies of hydrangea and snow berries tied with a cream ribbon. Buttonholes to match were made from hydrangea and snowberries.

Jane was getting married at The Grange Hotel where we made a large pedestal display for the ceremony room. Her reception was in a marquee which looked fab. There were various sized dining tables and we placed a large glass vase full of natural country styled flowers on each table.

We know hairdresser Jess as she works at Rootz, next door to us in Dunnington.
From the very start of her wedding plans she knew that she wanted purple gerberas for her wedding flowers to match her bridesmaids dresses.
We couldn't believe how lucky she was with the weather for her special day. The sun was shining when she came to collect her flowers having just had her hair done and veil put on. She looked lovely. Jess' flowers were arranged in a holder made with gerbera, roses and trailing foliage.

WEDDING IN A BOX - Anna's Wedding In Norfolk

Thursday 20th September 2012

The flowers for this wedding were all arranged with our bride Anna via emails and telephone calls. She wanted us to do all her bridal flowers, buttonholes and corsages and then her Mother-in-Law to be (who lives just round the corner from us) was going to take them with her to the wedding venue.
Anna knew she wanted all her flowers to look very natural as if they had just been picked from the fields and we tied her bouquet with raffia just to add to the natural effect.
We carefully packed all the items into a box - hence "Wedding In A Box" - ready for them to be taken to Norfolk.

Kate and Jamie chose the beautiful Hospitium, York for their wedding ceremony and reception.
Kate's friend made all the bridal flowers and we decorated the venue, which makes a nice change as it usually the other way round.
Blue, white and silver was the theme. Silver pots for the table decorations filled with eucalyptus, roses, thistles, snowberries, astrantia and viburnum berries looked great sat on the white tablecloths which had been lightly dusted with fine silver glitter. Downstairs in The Ceremony Room we dressed the front four pillars with our ever popular battery fairy lights, foliage and flowers and dotted our battery candles around the room on the sconces and ledges.
Kate also chose to have lights and battery candles along the stairs which looked really pretty.

Our second visit this week to the wonderful Hospitium, set in York's Museum Gardens.
Once again we decorated the pillars in The Ceremony Room with lights, foliage and burnt orange and cream coloured flowers that Carolyn had chosen for her wedding. Our battery candles were placed around the room and the final touch, the flower arrangement was placed on the Ceremony Table.
A relation of Carolyn's had made all the other flower and table arrangements for The Breakfast Room. We just had to assemble the wedding cake which we then decorated with flowers.

The room looked really lovely with the chairs covered and tied with orange and brown sashes.
We delivered Carolyn's bridal flowers to The Grange Hotel and she loved her bouquet made with dahlias, Norma Jean and Cherry Brandy roses, stephanotis and orchids.

We met Abbey when we were all working at York Maze preparing the venue for a wedding earlier this year.
Abbey who decorates venues for events loved a chandelier that we had decorated with flowers and asked us if we could do the same for her and also make her bouquet.
We decorated the chandelier with a variety of white and soft pink flowers and then it was hoisted up and tied to a beam above the aisle in front of the ceremony table.
Abbey and her partner had done a lovely job decorating the venue. All the windows had been blacked out and the room was going to be filled with just candles and little lights strung over the aisle. She had also hired a vintage Merry-Go-Round and most of the guests were camping in the field at The Maze. Abbey and her husband were going to spend their first night as man and wife in a lovely little teepee on the field. Lucky for them the weather was fantastic.

The sun was shining for Joanna who got married at The Hospitium on Friday.
There was a hive of activity when we delivered all the bridal flowers to her sister’s house in Copmanthorpe.
Joanna had chosen white and green for her colour scheme and she carried a hand tied posy of white roses, white freesia and calla lilies tied with lace to match her dress. Her four bridesmaids carried similar versions of Joanna’s bouquet but without the calla lilies.
