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.
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

Liz originally contacted us to discuss cut flower supply only for her wedding which was taking place at Lower Grange Farm in Kent in July. During the course of the conversation we mentioned our Bridal Flower make up service and although the wedding was taking place away from our delivery area, Liz decided that she could organise for a family member to collect the Bridal Party Arrangements on their way to the wedding and we would then courier the cut flowers directly to the venue earlier in the week so she had them in plenty of time to fill the jars she had collected and decorated.
After several emails and phone calls the order was finalised and the photos sent to us by Liz show the beautiful end results.
This is a perfect example of the way in which DIY Brides can create their own venue arrangements whilst leaving us to make the bouquets, buttonholes and corsages which alleviates some of the stress in the days before the wedding.
If you are interested in us providing a similar service for your wedding, please do get in touch – we are always happy to discuss all the options available to you and chat through any of your ideas.

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!!
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.
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
