An apple a day....

Well, I'm sitting at my very untidy desk eating a bit of leftover sausage-roll from here and have a nice mug of herbal tea on the go. The sun is shining and  I'm all prepared to write!I can't believe October is here and as much as we British do moan about the weather, I can't help loving the crisp Autumn mornings and warm jumpers, building log fires and generally sleeping lots *wishful thinking*!

I did promise a selection of photos from one of our Summer Brides and  here they are! Rachael (the Bride) sent through a beautiful selection of photos from her day and I've been dying to show them to you all!

The bouquet had a very elegant and modern feel to it, though a touch rustic with the hessian tie on the stems.

The flowers were a selection of creamy avalanche roses, gorgeous ivory cymbidium orchids, green 'chartreuse' roses, guelder roses (vibernum opulus-for those in the know) and bear-grass loops. 

The wedding ceremony & reception were held in the Tythe Barn at Priston Mill. The barn is a fantastic venue as the high ceilings give the space a very airy feeling! Plus lovely tall table arrangements like Rachael had work like a dream! 

Enjoy the photos and thank-you to Rachael for sharing a bit of her magical day with us. xx

Our wedding day turned out to be all we hoped for and more; the sun shined all day long! The planning seemed to go smoothly with us doing lots some weeks and nothing the next. Young Blooms were recommended to us by a friend and they didn't disappoint. A bright Irish green was our colour theme and we were happy to give Grace & Laura free reign on what flowers to use; they are the experts after all  We googled lots of the flowers after our initial meeting and were happy with the choice. We originally wanted limes in the vases and only added the idea of apples a few weeks prior to our big day. We were really pleased that they decided to use rustic apples as opposed to Granny Smiths; the end result was wonderful! We thought our venue had the 'wow factor' on the day and much of this was due to the flowers. Thanks again ladies!
