And guess what?
I was lucky enough to create the flowers for their beautiful wedding at Curradine Barns in Worcester.
Working alongside my very lovely friend Jackie, we created a selection of beautiful, country style floral designs using Lisianthus in white and lilac, white Vendela Roses, lavender, anenomes, eucalyptus and Gypsophelia.
Jackie is a fellow Worcestershire florist and she and I work together on any larger weddings. In fact she helped me with my very first wedding and has continued to help me on many occasions. She introduced me to the flower market in Birmingham and has given me lots of advice about growing plants and flowers for floristry. She’s a bit of a whizz when it comes to things flower related in fact and I’m very lucky to be able to work with her.
Floristry was always going to be my favourite hobby which I was lucky enough to get paid for, but as the weeks and months go on it is becoming much more than that. At the start of the year I worked on a beautiful styled shoot, I will share the photos in my next post, and then last week I did my first wedding of the year which ended up on the front of OK magazine. This was much to my absolute amazement I might add!
Jackie and I are both more Silent Witness girls than Coronation Street so had never watched the show. We had no idea that Mikey was such a central character! He was such a lovely guy and thanked us for making the venue look and smell so pretty. That eucalyptus never fails where beautiful scent is concerned.
We created bouquets and button holes, jam jars for the tables, little hearts with floral garlands for the walls, a pretty arrangement for the table where they said their vows, and then the masterpiece, which sadly didn’t make OK magazine, was a beautiful floral garland which we placed down the stairs. The shades of lilac, white and green were just perfect for a countryside winter wedding!
It was a real joy to be a part of and we’re just in the process of preparing for our next wedding after Valentines Day. It’s another double act at a beautiful countryside location in Worcester. I’ll tell you more next week.
