I like to think that we are always prepared to ‘go the extra mile’ to help make our clients wedding days especially memorable so I’d like to ask you if you would do something for us.

The Wedding Industry Awards are the only regional and national awards voted by clients to recognise and reward excellent wedding suppliers. In addition the awards help the next wave of soon-to-be newly-weds choose the best suppliers.

Naturally, we would love to win an award in the floristry section of the competition. To help us all you need to do is click on the link below and complete a simple online form and rate our service in various categories such as quality of expertise, advice and guidance.

 

Every good marriage needs to be built on solid foundations, something that came to mind when we were recently asked to create some unique floral displays for a builder’s wedding day.

I think they may have thought we were a little mad when we started talking about using bricks, helmets and gloves, but they soon came round when they saw the finished articles.  Thinking outside the box can often produce quite remarkable results.

This short video sums up what we were able to create for them.  Have we inspired you to try something different?

I am always on the lookout for something different for our flower arrangements. This August there are three special blooms that I think are especially worthy of my, and your, attention; allium, delphinium and gladiolus.

• Allium – a member of the liliaceae family, they tend to grow in temperate climates, especially in the northern hemisphere. Although they include all onion crops, alliums have long, elegant stems with a stylish globe made up of tiny flowers. Their colours range from white to purple and blue and most will be in full bloom at the height of our summer.

• Delphinium – this delightful flower has been around since the beginning of what has become known as the gardening revolution and was developed in England, France and America. Indeed the first illustration of a delphinium is found in a book from the early seventeenth century. As well as a wide variety of shades of blue, they can also be white, yellow, purple, pink or red.


I always say we like a challenge and we certainly got one with a recent request for flowers and floral displays for a wedding in Somerset.
It was held at Blackwell House in North Somerset, near Bristol. The venue offers a unique setting in a relaxed environment and we were called upon to dress the mantles in the Meeting Room and Lounge. I also managed to add some flowers to the main staircase in a rather interesting and unusual way!
Overall the attendees were treated to a pretty stunning display as you can see in this short video.

You may not be aware but British Flowers Week runs from Monday 18th June to Sunday 24th June.

It was originally started by the New Covent Garden Flower MarketFlower Market in 2013 and is an annual celebration of the variety and beauty of British cut flowers and foliage. Promoted by members of the British Florist Association, it shines a spotlight of the flower industry in this country, especially independent florists such as ourselves.

The aims of the week are to:

• Showcase our great variety of British flowers through fantastic floristry
• Raise awareness of which flowers are in bloom which season in Britain
• Encourage the public to buy more flowers!
