Apologies for the lack of recent posts but we are now well and truly into wedding season and the days and weeks seem to be flying by.
We are so thrilled to have one of our winter weddings featured on the blog of Love My Dress
Rebecca and Tom were married at Gate Street Barn, Surrey in February and had the crispest of winter days as the photos by Jessica Reeve Photography show.
Rebecca had chosen arrangements of primarily Eucalyptus foliage interspersed with white flowers to depict the time of year and to compliment the pale blue Bridesmaid dresses.
Complimenting us on the service we provided, Rebecca writes –
“The florist was delightful to deal with and totally ‘saw’ what I wanted- lots of greenery – eucalyptus, baby’s breath, ivy and then cream roses and flowers. She made the venue look even better than I had hoped.”

It is now only just over a week until our next Bridal Flower Open Day which takes place on Saturday 11th March from 10.00 am – 4 pm here at our premises in Horndean. Our Open Days are an ideal opportunity to see an extensive selection of Bridal Party and Venue Arrangements as well as a wide range of cut flowers suitable for weddings.
No appointment is necessary and our team will be on hand all day to discuss your ideas with you.
Kelly & Sam who were married at St Mary’s Church in Funtington and then held their reception at Farbridge, near Chichester in August 2016 attended one of our Open Days prior to their wedding. Whilst Kelly already had an idea of her requirements for the Bridal Party flowers, they both found the Open Day useful for choosing their venue arrangements as it enabled them to see exactly what their flowers would look like.
The photographs below courtesy of Lucy Lou Photography show all the flowers from Kelly & Sam’s wedding day and we hope you enjoy them as much as we have
On a grey, windy February day there is nothing better than being reminded of hot sunny days and these photographs sent to us by Hazel & Tommy have certainly achieved this.
The couple had originally booked another venue for their wedding but then had to make a last minute change and chose Three Choirs Vineyard, Wickham, Hampshire for their August 2016 wedding.
Hazel had been recommended to us by one of her friends for whom we had supplied wedding flowers the previous year. Whilst Hazel wished the flowers to be predominantly ivory she asked us to inject some colour in the form of coral mini Gerberas and the simplicity of all the arrangements reflected the relaxed nature of their venue.
Hazel and Tommy could not have been luckier with the weather on their wedding day with their dream of being married amongst the vines being realised.
These photographs courtesy of Tom Langford – Weddings by Tom have truly captured the happiness of the couples wedding day and have definitely brought a smile to our faces.

One of the bonuses of working in the wedding industry is meeting fellow suppliers. One such supplier we have had the pleasure of working with on many occasions is wedding photographer Hana Venn-Richards. We were therefore honoured and delighted when Hana asked us to supply the flowers for her own wedding in October.
Hana had chosen a beautiful autumnal colour scheme of burgundy and gold and wished the relaxed atmosphere of their pub venue to be reflected in all the arrangements. Peach Garden Roses were combined with burgundy Dahlias, Scabious, Astrantia, red Skimmea, dark red Hypericum berries, brown Cosmos and Eucalyptus Populus foliage. Brown beer bottles which Hana and Matt had collected, with the help of family and friends, were filled with the same flowers and foliage and placed around the pub.
Following her wedding, Hana wrote us this lovely review –
“MY FLOWERS WERE INCREDIBLE!!!! Absolutely blew my mind. I was a little bridezilla about them (sorry…), but Sally was incredible, and seriously I didn’t need to worry! Clare is a flower creation genius, and honestly, they are better than I could have even imagined. I hardly put them down all day, people were talking about them more than me! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!”
