HAPPY EASTER

What an exceptionally busy week it has been and it seems hardly possible that it is already almost a week since our Bridal Flower Open Day.

We were inundated with visitors all day which was so pleasing to see. It was such a pleasure to meet up with couples who have already booked us to supply the flowers for their wedding and to catch up with couples we have previously met at wedding fayres and who were visiting our premises for the first time and who would now like us to quote for their 2016 and 2017 weddings.

For all of you who are still waiting to hear back from us with your quote or re-quote we apologise for the delay. Generally speaking we endeavour to get these out within the week but our Easter weekend weddings have naturally had to take priority but we will be back in touch next week.

Our diary is now pretty fully booked  with consultations for the next few weekends but if you would still like to book a consultation to discuss your wedding flowers with us do please get in touch.

Below are just a few snapshots of the Open Day which we hope you will enjoy. If you were unable to make the Open Day last weekend out next one is scheduled to take place on Saturday 15th October 2016.

We are always delighted to also be joined at our Open Days by some other local wedding suppliers we work very closely with and the photographs below taken by Adam De Ste-Croix of Sainte-Croix Wedding Photography show our flowers and their products beautifully

Bridal Flower Open Day

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

Collaborative Photoshoot – Southend Barns

At the end of last month we shared with you a little taster of a photoshoot we were involved in at Southend Barns, Donnington, nr Chichester.

The photoshoot brought together several Hampshire and West Sussex wedding suppliers all of whom were keen to showcase their particular wedding product or service.

The chosen colour scheme  was a mixed palette of coral, peach and mint green with a hint of gold which all toned beautifully with the rustic but sophisticated setting of the venue and as you will see from the photographs below the end results were stunning.

Barn Photoshoot

Last Sunday we were delighted to participate in another photoshoot in collaboration with some other very talented local suppliers.

The location for the photoshoot was the stunning Southend Barns in Donnington, nr Chichester in the heart of the West Sussex countryside. The chosen colour scheme  was a mixed palette of coral, peach and mint green with a hint of gold which all toned beautifully with the rustic but sophisticated setting of the venue.

Whilst we are keeping the photos ‘under wraps’ at the moment the collage below will give you a little taster of what is to come.

It was our pleasure to be involved in such a fun event and we look forward to sharing more of the photos in the coming weeks.

W inter Wonderland Photoshoot

We were thrilled to take part in a photoshoot last October set within the beautiful surroundings of Langrish House, near Petersfield, Hampshire. The photoshoot entitled ‘Winter Wonderland’ was another collaboration of the work of a group of Hampshire based wedding suppliers who have teamed up on previous photoshoots in the area.

Despite the dull, damp weather it was a day full of fun and laughter and the photographs are testament to the creativity of all the suppliers involved.

Rather than the traditional red and green winter colours we opted for a scheme which incorporated  pale blue, silver and dusky pink tones to create a simple but sophisticated Winter Wonderland look.

Flower Girls were dressed in beautiful white dresses with a lace overlay, accompanied by white fur wraps to keep away the chill, whilst the Brides and adult Bridesmaids wore exquisite feather boleros over their beautiful dresses.

The hotel rooms and the newly constructed gazebo area were all decorated in sparkling and shimmering accessories to compliment the dresses and surroundings and add that further wintery feel.

For the first time we used a beautiful ‘Menta’ (mink coloured) Rose as the focal of the bouquets, oversized headdresses and table displays  which were combined with silver grey flowers and foliage whilst the Flower Girls wore hair circlets of Gypsophilia which matched their bouquets.

The sweet table centrepiece wedding cake was adorned with macarons in complimenting colours whilst the reception room tables were decorated with exquisite floral displays, themed stationery and more macarons.

We hope you enjoy all the photographs which are just a taster of more to follow and that they will be a source of inspiration to any Bride planning a wedding based on a similar theme.

Bridal Flower Open Day

Last Saturday was our Bridal Flower Open Day which was attended by in excess of 50 Brides / Grooms and their families. We were inundated with enquiries and now have a busy few weeks compiling quotes and meeting with couples who booked appointments for consultations with us. It was lovely to see so many people and we were also delighted to be joined by local companies Eliza Mabel, Queen Bees Treats, Carro’s Cakes, Hana Venn Photography and Quaint and Quirky Event Hire who all loved being part of the day.

Our Bridal Flower Open Days are a great opportunity to view an extensive range of Bridal Party and Venue Arrangements and a wide range of cut flowers suitable for weddings. Feedback from those who attended was that it is so useful to be able to see flowers ‘in the flesh’ so to speak and to be able to look at and hold bouquets of differing sizes and shapes.

We are grateful to all those who attended the Open Day but if you were unable to make it,  our next one will take place on Saturday 28th March 2015.

In the meantime here are just a few pictures from last weekend
