Mr & Mrs Kyprianou, 25th May 2015

I met Joanna at The Guildhall Wedding Fair where she had spent the day wandering around for inspiration carrying a rather neat and tidy little baby bump on her front!  We got chatting and she got in touch with me a few days later and asked me to come and chat all things flowery with

I first met Nicola and James way back in November 2014 at a wedding fair where I was exhibiting.  We spoke after the event and they invited me into their lovely home for a chat, and a fuss of their pet dog, Ringo. They were holding their ceremony at one of my favorite venues, The

It seems like a lifetime ago that I met these two gorgeous girls at a wedding fair I exhibited at back in September 2014.  They were both such fun and I had a blast getting to know them and getting involved in their big day.  We had lots of fun discussing what would suit their

We are 1 year old!

Happy birthday to us!  Where did that last year go?!  It only seems like yesterday I was tearing my hair out looking at the HMRC website trying to figure out how to start my own business – now I’m preparing my books ready to go to the accountant. I have worked in floristry since I

Mr & Mrs Roberts, 21st December 2014

Back in December I had the pleasure of arranging the wedding flowers for the beautiful Sara and Lee who were married at Prestwold Hall in Loughborough, Leicestershire. When I first met Sara, she knew that she wanted calla lilies and that her bridesmaid’s dresses were going to be a berry red but that was about
