We were thrilled with the attendance at our last Open Day in October and have been very busy since then meeting up with couples to discuss their wedding flowers in more detail and putting together their quotes
Our next Open Day will take place in the Spring of 2019 and we will post the date as soon as it is fixed in the calendar. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy these photographs taken of some of the displays from October courtesy of Hana Venn Photography – Hampshire Wedding Photographer
Our next Bridal Flower Open Day will take place on Saturday 20th October 2018 from 10am – 4pm at our premises in Horndean.
Our Open Days provide couples and their families with an opportunity to see an extensive selection of Bridal Party & Venue Arrangements and our cold store will be stocked with a wide range of cut flowers.
No appointment is necessary and our team will be on hand all day to discuss your specific requirements and show you examples of our work.
On a blistering hot July day, we attended the wedding of our very own Tasha and her fiancé Adam
Tasha and Adam held their wedding in the grounds of the farm of a family friend and Tasha’s meticulous planning and attention to detail was evident throughout the day
Tasha had chosen flowers in a selection of pale peachy pinks and mint greens to tie in with the colours of the Bridesmaid’s and Flower Girl’s dresses
Beautiful loose and natural hand tied bouquets of David Austin ‘Charity’ Roses, ‘Ador Avalanche’ Roses, ‘Galina’ & ‘Bombastic’ Spray Roses, green Lisianthus, white Astilbe, Thlaspi Green Bell, berried Eucalyptus Populus & Rosemary were carried by the Bride and her adult Bridesmaids whilst her Flower Girl carried a wand decorated with the same flowers and wore a hair circlet of Rosemary and Waxflower. Tasha wore a hair crown of ‘Galina’ & ‘Bombastic’ Spray Roses, Thlaspi Green Bell, Rosemary & berried Eucalyptus Populus foliage
Milk churns with a selection of the same flowers plus white Delphiniums, white Larkspur and ‘Wedding Rose’ Roses were placed at the head of the aisle with the Bride and Groom stood in front of an arch decorated with the same flowers and foliage. Beer bottles filled with flowers were placed on log slices beside hay bales along the length of the aisle
The tables in the marquee were decorated with central table runners of Eucalyptus Nicholi and berried Eucalyptus Populus, Rosemary and Soft Ruscus interspersed with clusters of flowers to match the Bridal Party Flowers. Hoops of the same foliage were hung from the ceiling of the marquee and a step ladder and wooden crates decorated with flower filled bottles provided further decoration
The wedding cake was dressed with Roses and Eucalyptus and placed on a large wooden log slice
Despite the intense heat it was the most amazing day from start to finish and we wish Tasha and Adam every future happiness

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

We wish you all a very Happy Easter weekend and look forward to working with you in the lead up to your weddings
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.
It may currently be snowing outside but these lovely sunny pictures taken last September have certainly ‘warmed us up’ on what is a far from Spring day.
Jenny & Henry were married at Thorney Island Church followed by a marquee reception in Jenny’s parent’s garden. Whilst we made all the Bridal Party Arrangements, Jenny created her own table centrepieces using flowers supplied by us. This is a part of our service which many Brides take advantage of and it is always lovely for us to see the beautiful arrangements they have created.
Jenny had requested predominantly ‘country’ style flowers with accents of blue to tie in with the Bridesmaid’s dresses and the coastal setting of their wedding.
We were delighted to see this lovely review of our services written by Jenny –
“Bridal Flowers Direct did an amazing job with our wedding flowers – I have no clue about flowers at all but they were able to take my vague ideas and produce the most perfect bouquets and flowers for arranging, whilst remaining flexible about our changing requirements. I cannot thank them enough! The whole process was very easy and we felt excellent value for money too.”

When you have a Welsh born Bride and an Australian born Groom getting married in the Spring, the perfect flower combination is Daffodils and Mimosa and this is exactly what we supplied for the wedding of Helen and Scott which took place at Ramster Hall, Chiddingfold, Surrey at the end of last week.
This was one of our weddings where we never actually met the Bride or the Groom but as they were very specific with their requirements, we were able to organise everything by email alone.
The end result was a stunningly simplistic display of flowers which had Spring written all over it and definitely proves that less can sometimes be more when it comes to wedding flowers.
Below are just a few of the photos we took of the bouquets and during the set up at the venue –
