#britishflowers pt2

This week was #britishflowers week...
We have seen lots of publicity on the pro's of promoting growth and production of #britishflowers!
I feel the majority of my customers are already more aware of where the flowers they decide to purchase come from, and brides often ask if #britishflowers can be incorporated into the bridal work, what is available, when and how it can be used!
So- on a very hot summers day with a paddock full of Rosie's #britishflowers, a fabulous hairdresser David with a spare 2hours, an amazing photographer Becky with free Monday, a couple... and me we did an impromptu photo shoot to show how beautiful #britishflowers can be...

special thanks to Luke & Callie

A Somerset & Devon collaboration

For 2014 we are beginning to see an increase in the number of brides wanting to have a natural, if not wild, style bouquet... Something with that 'just picked' feel using British grown flowers when possible.
As a florist this is really exciting, it means one can be creative with the materials we work with and also a little creative with where flowers are sourced!
Being based on the Somerset and Devon border I am privileged to be able to form a collaboration with a British grower called Richard or "Wild flower Rich" if you're a Twitter user! Richard has been growing for over 10 years, specialising in native Wild British flowers check out his pinterest boards (Clements Farm) or his website to give you an idea of the types of flowers he is growing for 2014. Our first wedding together is in May, and dates are going fast...
So if you're looking for something a little different, getting married in Somerset or Devon then get in touch... Look forward to hearing from you soon x

The Flower shop

We have been 'googled' so now you can take a peak inside at our little shop in Wellington.
Thinking of getting married in Somerset or Devon? Looking for a florist? Then get in touch... I am sure we will be able to help x
Hope you like what you see :)

This week...

This week saw the last of our workshops, I think everyone enjoyed themselves- we certainly produced some fantastic pieces!

Next week will be 'marathon wreath making week' it began today really, we can't make them fast enough... The shop was abandoned this evening, left under an explosion of foliage and moss! Roll on tomorrow :)

In memory...

Today's wedding was in Crowcombe, a stunning village in the Quantock Hills, West Somerset.
The house, Crowcombe Court, a fabulous English Regional Baroque style property completed in 1739, with the village church sitting at the bottom of the drive. The church houses an amazing chandelier that has many candles to light. It comes with a story... The vicar of the church during the 1950's lost his wife unexpectedly and so had this fabulous piece of craftsmanship commissioned in her memory, I thought you deserved to see it!

Today we donned our Wellingtons

It's great to have a friend who owns a piece of woodland, we donned our wellingtons and began our adventures collecting and foraging...
Yes I fell over, fortunately not crossing the stream, and the landing was soft! So did Sandy, but like a true gatherer, she held onto the cones... Not one lost!
The day was beautiful... And so is our collection x

And I feel that when I'm with you it's alright, you know it's right...

They walked down the isle in the cider barn at Muddifords Court, to 'Songbird'... beautiful song, beautiful couple.

Vikki and Lou were a pleasure to work with, they had a tonne of ideas to share with me, and came with a selection of beautiful mood boards.
Both bouquets were to be different, but connected... and both to be kept a secret from the other, just like the dresses, until the big day!
Vikki, Somerset born, wanted the rustic charm that you get from the country... Lou, Scottish, also loved rustic charm but wanted the inclusion of something that related to her roots, and so we used euringium and heather... the colour-blue, with a touch of pink, peach, ivory... foliage too.

We made a huge heart to hang over the mirror from silver birch, and small wreaths to tie onto the backs of the chairs...
The bridesmaids carried simple posies of gypsophillia.
The venue was decorated with jam jars,
beautifully decorated with lace, burlap and string, along with painted terracotta pots filled with lavenders
Congratulations to the lovely Vikki & Louise, and  huge thank you to Sam Gibson from for the use of these beautiful images.

Nice Day for a White Wedding...

Rebecca got in touch with me just a few weeks before her wedding with a clear idea of what she liked.
We shared some ideas over pinterest before we met to discuss our thoughts and ideas together.

The flowers had to be white, delicate and scented where possible, We used the silk from Rebecca's dress to bind her bouquet and satin ribbon for her bridesmaids.

The blooms we  chose were Dutchess De Nemo peonies, white eustoma, freesia, white majolika spray roses and Lily of the valley combined with a touch of eucalyptus... Rebecca's bouquet was exquisite. Full of tiny details and subtle scents.

 Simeon, the groom, and his groomsmen all wore simple eustoma button holes finished with twine.

Rebecca and Simeon married at the fabulous St Audries in West Quantocks Head earlier this year.
Simon Biffen of the man behind the lense.
Check out our facebook page for some more of Simon's images from Rebecca and Simeon's wedding.
