A bit of a mish-mash!

I have to say the last month has absolutely flown by, we had an amazing Mother's day weekend, a couple of fabulous weddings, being short-listed for an award and now we seem to be having loads of wedding enquiries for 2013!! It's certainly true that one week is the never the same as the next!

Mother's day bliss!

I loved the variety of people there was ordering flowers over Mother's day weekend, we caught up with brides we had done flowers for, ordering for their Mum's, orders from New-Zealand and Europe (terribly continental!) and  last minute order's being boxed up and sent round the country.

One of the firm favourites of the weekend were these delightful planted arrangements and they weren't just being bought for Mum's. One of our favourite customer's bought one for a dinner party that she was attending, another for a lady who had been unwell!!

This was a rather yummy wedding, the Bride was super-relaxed and very excited to see her bouquet when I arrived at her house. It was a lovely mix of amnesia & cool water roses, lisianthus and avalanche roses with a selection of silvery foliage.

The bridesmaids had these cute bouquets to compliment the Brides! Makes me think of chocolate boxes for some reason....

When I get the time I enjoy nosing through some of the blogs I follow and love the way they list of what they have loved, been looking at and just generally find rather fabulous so in a fit of 'I can do that too'....

Here goes......

Bursting with pride...

Hope you enjoy a something a little bit different from Young Blooms. We couldn't resist showing you this wedding. Hope you enjoy the treat! Bev was a pleasure to work with and it was gorgeous to be able to input into her special day! We had only ever emailed and telephoned about the wedding but she was a delight to work with and I am so pleased to be able to show off her great day here, so enjoy!

The wedding was at 2.30pm on Wednesday 25th January 2012, Burns Day for us Scots and also our 2 year anniversary. It was a small fairly informal occasion with only 7 guests including the bride and groom. We held our ceremony in Guild Hall in Bath followed by a fantastic Italian meal in the very friendly Bottalinos. Our accommodation was second to none at The Halcyon a very good recommendation by yourselves at Young Blooms, so thank you for that.Stunning day wonderful location. Our flowers where amazing and better than I imagined they would be. The whole day was captured elegantly by the wonderful Bath based Marko Dukta! This being second time round for both of us, the day was over all everything we ever dreamed off small and intimate. 

A huge thank you to everyone who made our day so special and our memories so magical!
