The Guildhall, Leicester

I had so much fun exhibiting at The Boutique Wedding Fair in November at The Guildhall in Leicester!  It was a really busy day with almost 100 brides through the doors and lots of gorgeous fellow suppliers.  I’m over the moon to tell you all that I’ve had several bookings so far and still more to quote for!

The fair was loosely based around a Christmas theme, it’s sometimes tricky to work with a theme for a wedding fair as not all of the brides who visit are getting married at that particular time of year!  However, never one to be deterred, I of course included a few things for our winter brides to throw some ideas out there and  to give them options for their big days that they can tweak to their own plans!  Have a little look see below for a few photos!

A small kilner jar is an incredibly versatile arrangement and can have almost any style of flowers within from a small country garden theme to something more exotic.  They don’t lend themselves to only being table centre pieces, they also make great gifts, a lovely little something to have on your card or cake table or even to have on the floor down the aisle!  I have several bookings for 2015 with these as table centre pieces and it seems to be a trend that isn’t going anywhere just yet!  This one included vandela roses, blue thistle, euclyptus and million stars gyp.

I also ‘knocked together’ (a super technical florist term of course!) a small wreath arrangement, these look stunning with a hurricane vase in the middle with a candle inside.  As the sun goes down and the candles are lit, the flames dance on the diamantes set inside the roses and give off a beautiful twinkly glow.

The two bridal bouquets that I had this time round were both very different.  The first one, as you will see below, is loosely based on a wintery theme with some stunning red passion roses, blue thistles, eucylptus, bouvardia and frosted pinecones.  Modeled on the left by the ever-so-lovely Charlie from Mango Acoustic Duo.

The second, a smaller hand tied wedding bouquet, suitable for a bridesmaid, in summery shades!  With orange roses, yellow crespedia, blue thistles, lime green hypericum berries, orange spray carnations with a sprinkling of million stars gyp, it’s perfect for a summery wedding.

If Facebook is your sort of thing, you can find me there where I regularly post pictures of work that I do.  It’s also full of all the mischief I get up to!  I also lurk on Twitter!

Finally, I am delighted to announce that I will be exhibiting at The Guildhall in Leicester once again on Sunday 1st March with Te-Amo Vintage Fairs for their Vintage Wedding Fair.  Looking forward to seeing you there!
