Our differences are what make us fabulous....

My future home....
I know I have said before, but one thing I love about my job is how no one wedding is the same. Couples might have read the same wedding magazine or seen the same blog as another but how they interpret those ideas is unique and completely their own. Below is the stunning Court Essington which is on the outskirts of Bath. Its a privately owned house that can be rented for weddings!

This place boasts a swimming pool, tennis court and the best thing of all chauffeur service!! Know where I want to stay when I'm next in town.

The couple had a marquee in the garden which overlooked the expansive lawns. We arrived to set up the flowers with the sounds of Michael Buble wafting through the gardens....

If only every set up of a wedding could be that chilled!

We shouldn't have favourites! But....

The Brides bouquet had our favourite rose of the weekend.
Illusion roses are just gorgeous, if your wanting a country garden style bouquet, these are perfect! Added in with the ever luxurious majolika spray roses and surprisingly scented Queen Anne's lace! (the stuff that looks like cow parsley but is MUCH nicer)

A triumph of the floral kind....

Top table flowers
 This weekend has been a floral triumph. I won't tell you how many weddings we to say they were all fabulous! Brides were gorgeous, flowers were stunning and safely delivered, the weather held (just) and we were a happy team of florists.

These are photos from one of the weddings. I love delphinium (tall blue flowers) the colour of them is just sensational and really stands out in the reception flowers. They work well in high-ceiling rooms and are certainly noticed in churches!!

For this wedding the Bride had three small cubes along the top table and to get the midnight blue colour in to the smaller arrangements had large beads wired in. This can be a very affective idea if your struggling to match your colour palette to flower choice

Pedestal arrangement for the church
The reception for this wedding was held at the fabulous Bowood house. There reception room is lovely and spacious and the tall delphinium worked well. Sometimes you can forget to encourage Brides to think about the overall affect of what flowers will look like.
So if your wanting statement flowers, think height and colour!!
