Billinda's wedding!!

Im really looking forward to doing billinda's wedding flowers, i cant wait to see it all come together thats the exciting bit when you see dress's, the suits, the whole bridal party.
I choose a rose called metallica for billinda's bridal bouquet, i havn't worked with it before and i only ever seen it in magazines, they are expensive but worth it!! Just look at the fabulous colour, very elegant, and a little different from the normal ivory rose. Cant wait to make her bouquet now!!

Country Chic

Alot of brides to be loved this style, as its so simple, the different textures make it wonderfully exciting to look at.
Our table centre to match also created alot of attention, its a bit quirky and different & very eye catching.

Ultra Modern

This modern bouquet is just so stunning, the orchids really speak for them selves perfect for a bride with a modern style.
Fish bowls and mirrors are so simple yet effective!!


Wow the bridal Fayre was amazing, Beautiful location at Gosford castle, fab marquee, and loads of lovely people to chat to!!
These are fabulous picutures from Sara Dalzell Photography. This vintage bouquet was a big hit at the bridal fayre last night!! & I must say a personal favourite of mine.

Bridal Fayre Tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!............
 Iv been so obsessed with flowers that iv left eveything else eg, props & photo's to the last minute!! so i have one day to go buy all my flowers, make them into stunning examples of my work (thats the easy bit) and also i have to get some images burned unto a disc, get some printed.
Id thought about doing some mood boards on each theme, which would entail some fun cutting & sticking from magazine etc....... umm il see about that one.
R.J. Farrell Specialist Joinery were supposed to make me a vanity screen, but at present it doesnt seem to have materialised yet??? Thats one more thing on the to do list!!
I would love an easle to hold a large image in a frame, but unless i happen to stumble on one of those today, (the chances are slim i know) i dont think that will be happening!!!

Gosford castle wedding farye

Iv been so busy with wedding planning, not mine of course but three brides-to-be wedding flowers. Each of them is so different, which is exciting and confusing when ordering, i have to be so careful when ordering the flowers!!!

Getting married northern ireland are hosting a bridal fayre in gosford castle next thursday, as its my first ever im super excited, iv thought of 3-4 different themes to do samples of. And also il be bringing along some of my bay trees etc which are available to hire. I feel it's important for the bride-to-be to  get to see and hold a bouquet,picture just dont have the same effect!!

So for my themes im doing VINTAGE, which is all the rage these days, it'l be very easy to achieve as my shop is a living homage to vintage chic!!

ULTRA-MODERN which again is a favourite of mine because simple lines and bold exciting flowers can really make such an impact!

And big decisions i didin't know to go ELEGANT GLAMOUR or COUNTRY CHIC. Elegant glamour is simple and safe, which (although i always try to presuade them otherwise) is what a lot of brides want!! Id be using white roses, maybe teamed with black, ribbon & beads etc.

Country chic on the other hand is an up and comming trend to rival vintage, its more natural, earthy and has a looser stlye, id be using wild looking flowers, vivid colours and single stems in a loose hand tie.

Awh.........the dilema!!
