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!!!!”

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our wedding couples a very Happy Christmas and New Year. It has been our pleasure working with you in the last 12 months and we look forward to seeing those of you getting married in 2017 in the new year.
We will be closed from 4pm on Friday 23rd December and re-open at 8.30am on Wednesday 4th January. If you have an urgent enquiry while we are closed, please email email@example.com with a contact telephone number and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
With our very best wishes to you and your families for the festive season
Sally, Clare, Clare and Tasha
If you are looking for inspiration for winter wedding flowers then look no further than these beautiful photographs courtesy of Fiona Mills Art Photography taken at the wedding of Geoff & Jess at the beginning of November. The couple were married at Chichester Baptist Church followed by a reception at Southend Barns and all the flowers were chosen to tie in with their ‘elegant vintage Jane Austen’ themed wedding and the navy blue dresses worn by the Bridesmaids. White Anemones and Lisianthus were combined with ivory Garden Roses, blue Eryngium (thistles), Silver Brunia, Senecio and Eucalyptus foliage to create all the Bridal Party, Church and Venue Arrangements.
We were so delighted to see so many couples attend our Open Day in October and even more delighted that many of them have now booked us to supply the flowers for their 2017 weddings.
We have just received these stunning photos from Hana Venn Photography who joined us on the day. We have worked with Hana on many of our 2016 weddings and even supplied the flowers for her own wedding a few weeks ago.
For those of you who were unable to make the Open Day these are a taster of the displays we had on show and also notice that our 2017 Open Days are to take place on Saturday 11th March and Saturday 14th October so please do make a note of these in your 2017 diaries when you get them
