MAY REFLECTIONS - "I must have flowers, always, and always." Claude Monet

During the last few weeks we have been foraging, designing and creating floral chandeliers, pedestals, arches, bouquets and buttonholes for beautiful couples. Admin is a big part of our week and we have been preparing quotes for lovely 2020 brides and grooms, catching up with venues and speaking to our special 2019 brides and grooms. We simply love our job.

We had a little window of opportunity last week to make a quick and inspirational trip to London - visiting Kew Gardens and the RHS garden at Wisley - the colours of the rhododendrons and azaleas were out of this world and the beautiful luscious apple green of the young foliage on the trees was breath-taking. No Chelsea this year, but have enjoyed catching the highlights on the BBC. Congratulations to all the award winners.

June is a month of weddings and our local Dunning Market.

February reflections

February is a busy month, involving consultations and finalising arrangements with brides for the 2019 wedding season.  A big tidy-up took place, making room in the garden shed and studio to move  'Christmas' which is now boxed and safely stored for the next eight months.     We visited a couple of venues, discussed foraging locations and held discussions with flower suppliers.     There is never a dull moment in the world of 'Stunning Flowers' - varied, exciting, and the best job in the world.

The 2019 wedding diary is filling up,  but if flowers or hoops and loops are still unchecked on your 'to do' list, then we would be delighted to discuss your thoughts and ideas for your  BIG day as we still have some free weekends.

We have started initial  discussions with clients for 2020 events - it's never too early to have the conversations, and we would love to hear from you.
