BRIDAL FLOWER OPEN DAY

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

Vineyard Wedding

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.

Bridal Flower Open Day Photos

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

Whimsical Wonderland Weddings

Apologies for the lack of recent posts but we seem to have been swept off our feet all Summer ……..

Whilst we spend most of the summer months putting together Bridal Party and Venue arrangements for Brides who wish to take advantage of our full wedding service there are some Brides who wish to be more creative and ‘hands on’ with their wedding flowers so ask us to supply just the flowers they require. In these cases, we are always happy to offer any advice needed regarding flower varieties and the quantities which are likely to be required to create their arrangements.

Lorna was one such Bride, who in August 2015, put together all the arrangements for her wedding and it is lovely to see we have been mentioned in an article on the blog of Whimsical Wonderland Weddings. Please click on the link below to see pictures from the wedding and to read the lovely comments from Lorna.

If you are a DIY Bride looking to make all or some of your wedding flower arrangements do get in touch. If you only wish to make your venue arrangements, we are happy to quote for making the Bridal Party Arrangements which may alleviate some of the stress!!

Weekend Weddings

What beautiful weather for last weekend’s couples – fingers crossed it is a sign of things to come for the rest of the Summer.

On Saturday we made our first trip to the Elvetham Hotel, near Fleet in Hampshire – a very stately 19th century mansion set in beautifully landscaped gardens.  Whilst the ceremony took place in the Oak Room, the wedding breakfast was held in the Conservatory overlooking the grounds which was perfect for such a sunny early summer day. White Hydrangeas, pink Ranunculas and blush Roses were all combined to create arrangements very in keeping with the setting and the time of year.

Yesterday was the wedding of Chloe and Soheil at Southdowns Manor  – we are delighted to be a preferred supplier at this beautiful venue located on the Hampshire/ Sussex border. Blush pink Sweet Avalanche Roses and pale blue Delphiniums were combined with Gypsophila for Chloe’s bouquet and the table centrepieces with bouquets of just Gypsophila for her 6 Bridesmaids and the pew ends. Southdowns Manor is a complete blank canvas for couples to select any colour scheme or theme and the flowers chosen by Chloe and Soheil were perfect for both the time of year and the venue.

 

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
