Catching up and some things i have done!

I can not believe how quickly the time flies by and how bad i have been at blogging! I have actually been doing lots of interesting things and i have failed to share them! So now is catch up time!
Firstly - the lovely wedding of Graeme and Mary at highgate house. 
She looked stunning and her flowers were a beautiful choice of soft pastel pinks with the feathery astilbe. They looked lovely.

2 weeks latter and another highgate house wedding.  This time congratulations to Pauline and Rob.
Also went to Dovecote farm - a new rural wedding venue near kettering. Got some lovely photo from Danielle Mobbs the photographer for the day.

Wedding Fair at Club Dianas Wellingborough

Getting prepared for another wedding fair on Sunday13th.
Look out for pictures from the event.
Live catwalk shows and all things wedding based!
I will look forward to meeting all you brides to be!

Funeral Spray

There is a certain peaceful pleasure in creating funeral flowers as a last gift from a loved person.
This single ended spray was created using pale blue Delphiniums, blue eryngium, yellow roses, white freesia and solidago.
A fitting fair well for a loved gentleman.

Kelmarsh Wedding Vintage Pinks/Plums

Congratulations to Catherine and Mark. This was actually Julys wedding. And she went for the memory lane and sweet avalanche rose. This is Catherine bouquet.

For the tables at Kelmarsh we used glass pedestal vases and filled them with the roses, Astrantia, stocks, freesia and wax flower. 

And in the ceremony room pew ends.

Cant wait to see the photos of the bride and groom!

Some recent gift arrangements

I love to do flowers in oasis. Why? Because they stay exactly were you put them!
Here are two arrangements both in oasis and in baskets of different styles.
Let me know if you have a favourite and why!

This is a hand tied arrangement in an aqua pack(bubble of water)

Funeral Single Ended Spray

However strange it may sound funeral flowers are what I love to do the most. Its such a special thing to get right and a fitting tribute can make a horrible occasion bearable.
This spray was for a gentlemen's funerals so I used blues, purples and greens.  We have in this arrangement the purple calla lily, Blue delphiniums, Green Eustoma and solidago(golden rod).
A variety of foliage helps to finish this arrangement off.

Please leave me a comment. Your feedback is important!
