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!!!!”

It is now only two days until our Bridal Flower Open Day which takes place here on Saturday 19th March from 10am to 4pm.
We have planned some beautiful arrangements for our displays in a multitude of colours and our cold store will be full of flowers so if you are getting married in the coming months and need some inspiration for your flowers please do come along.
No appointment is necessary and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday.
Today we have received this lovely testimonial from one of our November 2015 wedding couples. These are always so lovely to read and we greatly appreciate such lovely comments.
“I can’t recommend Bridal flowers enough. They were welcoming and so friendly. They worked to our budget and the flowers were just beautiful I couldn’t have asked for better! Whilst I was getting quotes I found some florists very pushy as well as expensive but with Bridal flowers this was just not the case. They got everything perfect and I can’t thank them enough!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!”

We would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. A big thank you to all the Brides and Grooms and their families as well as all the suppliers we have worked with in the past 12 months.
Apart from a couple of weddings, we will be taking a much needed break between Christmas and New Year and will be back in the office on 5th January 2016. If you send us an enquiry during this period please forgive the lack of response but we will reply as soon as we are back.
2015 has been incredibly busy and it looks as if 2016 will be the same if not busier. We look forward to meeting more couples in the coming months and supplying the weddings already booked.
Have a great Christmas and see you in 2016.
If you live in the Portsmouth area, are planning a wedding in the coming months and wish to support a worthy local charity why not visit the Portsmouth Hospital Charity Wedding Fayre at the Mountbatten Leisure Centre on Sunday 25th October from 10-3.
We will have a stand at the event and would be delighted to show you examples of our work and discuss your wedding flowers with you.
It seems hard to believe that it is already over a week since our Bridal Flower Open Day and we have been busy getting back in touch with many of the Brides we met on the day.
We were completely overwhelmed with the attendance and wish to thank all the Brides and Grooms and their families who came along and we look forward to meeting up with you in the coming weeks at your consultations and then working with you in the lead up to your wedding.
Below are some photographs taken on the day by Hana Venn Photography showing some of our displays and also macarons by Queen Bees Treats
If you were unable to attend our Open Day and are planning a wedding in the coming months our 2016 Bridal Flower Open Days we will be held on Saturday 19th March and Saturday 15th October 2016
