It’s been a while

It really has been a while since I last posted. This was not intentional however summer was busy for me with an influx of weddings and also some very exciting news. If you follow me on Instagram you will have spotted that I am having a baby. It was wonderful and very long awaited news so I’m sure you’ll forgive me for being a little more quiet than usual. Once baby arrives I will tell you a little more about the trials and tribulations along the way, however for now I am basking in the delight of expecting our first child. He or she is due in January so Christmas will be particularly special for us this year.

As the year starts to come to a close I have begun to recap on some of the exciting weddings I have been lucky enough to have been involved with this during 2016. On Friday I will be heading over to Stow on the Wold to deliver Laura’s wedding flowers for her wedding at Hyde Barn. Laura came to see me earlier in the year and I have been very excited to prepare all of her deliciously rich wintery colours for her beautiful wedding to John. I met Laura when I was working in marketing so it feels quite special to be creating her wedding flowers.

The Cotswolds is a beautiful location for a wedding and many of the weddings that I create flowers for tend to be in this area. There are lots of beautiful venues and of course the scenery is quite spectacular too. If you’re thinking of getting married in the area let me know if you’d like me to write a post with some of my recommended venues. There’s something for everyone and I’ve been lucky enough to do a fair few weddings in the area during 2016.

Here’s a few photos I took of the flowers for lovely Laura’s beautiful Cotswold wedding at Hyde Barn:

As you know I spend lots of my time working with flowers.

We recently moved house so I haven’t had a workshop or proper space to work in since November last year. In fact you could quite often find me balancing flowers on top of wheelie bins – I’m not even joking. Thankfully I now have a lovely little space to work in. It has plenty of shelves, a nice tall table and a cute little window too. What more could I ask for?

When my best friend announced she was getting married I knew it was going to be one hell of a shindig. The kind that oozes style and glamour.

The big day itself was months in the planning. We enjoyed day trips to London to pick shoes and accessories. We had numerous afternoon tea sessions to discuss the finer details of the day. We took road trips to see her wedding dress – a total masterpiece of a gown, and we sat up chatting until late into the night discussing the big day.

She gave me the ultimate honour of being her chief bridesmaid so I always knew I wanted to give her a really special wedding gift.
