Autumn is arriving…….

Judging by the weather today it seems that Autumn is making itself known, rain, cold and leaves falling, a total change from last week. I was lucky enough to spend the week in Cornwall, near St Ives, the weather was wonderful, no jackets, coats or sweaters required.

Back to work this week, finalising arrangements for November wedding and a recent request for wedding flowers in a couple of weeks. 2015  is coming along nicely, a few definite bookings in the diary already and new enquiries coming in.

Time to think about Christmas and possibly running a couple of  workshops on Christmas arrangements.

Until next time, a good day to all.


Sunny yellow on a rainy day!



Last weekends wedding flowers,  yellow and white roses with gypsophelia, fern and various sparkles and pearls.


The alter arrangement was moved after the ceremony, a few adjustments were made and it became the top table arrangement at the reception.



Fooling around with flowers

Gypsophelia is proving to be popular with brides at the moment, it fits in so well with the more natural look that the ladies are looking for, pretty, works well with most flowers and  on it’s own, whether in a bouquet or a jam jar. I’ve been messing about with some this week to show one of our 2015 brides how it could look.

If you’re wondering about the crates, they are a set of 5 which we have available to hire.

Just gyp as a small bridesmaids bouquet


Pretty mixture of white & green.

September, time for a holiday ;o)

Here goes, our first post and as it’s getting towards the end of wedding season it’s our holiday time, Kathy is currently sunning herself in Turkey and I will be enjoying the joys of Cornwall very soon. We hope to add posts as often as time allows. There will be pictures, ideas, beautiful things we’ve come across on our travels or online. Local events, wedding fares, Christmas fares, fund raising events and anything that we think may interest you. Holidays here we come, we’ll be back soon with news of our trips and this summers weddings….here’s to a sunny September :o)
