This is a Thursday throwback to November last year. A beautiful wedding where the bride chose the most eloquent choice of flowers for their theme and for the time of year too. We used a range of foliage, hypericum berries, deep red roses and ivory roses. The bridal bouquets were created in a wild bohemian style and to match those we created wreaths for the tables and a large display for the top table.
Oh I do love a wedding and I remember my little studio being full of blooms for this occasion. If you have visited me at Markeaton Park you will know that my studio is small but kind of like the tardis from Doctor Who, always seems bigger on the inside. Plenty of room to get creating and put together the designs to make your special day.
I know it’s a time when many of you have had to postpone wedding plans and that must be a massive disappointment, but just as I have said to couples who have already booked their weddings with me, we will re arrange and you will get your time to shine.
If you are planning a wedding for the future and you would like to chat, remember we can do this online by video call or you can send a message or email with your plans and I will get back to you.
Keep smiling and keep planning, we will get through this!!

I do like a bit of a wild bouquet with a kind of rustic feel. It makes a change from the more traditional bouquet wrapped in cellophane which I do admire but it is nice to think outside the box a bit sometimes and design something a bit different.
This bouquet is a mix of the following flowers wrapped in a simple hessian square and tied with raffia bow.
I also took some of these flowers and made a small arrangement which is perfect standing in the living room but with an added parcel tag it would suit any table decoration for an event or a wedding.

I love a request to put flowers together, hang on that’s why I’m here isn’t it? Yes but I love it. So I was excited to provide these designs to a local chauffeur service for their wedding appointments.
I made a small arrangement in artificial flowers to be placed on the parcel shelf in one of the cars and a garland for the front shelf in a mini bus. The flowers I used were ivory Lily’s, Roses and Stephanotis and I accompanied those with some green Ivy, Wisteria, and Eucalyptus.
The small arrangement can also be used for a table decoration for a wedding or event and garlands also can be used at events in many different ways. They can be twisted around candleholders or placed along the front of a top table at your wedding. They can also be made in any colour to match your preference in fresh or artificial flowers. Oh so many ideas, makes a creative brain like mine nearly burst with excitement to be honest.
It was such a pleasure to provide these designs to Kevin from Nottingham Chauffeurs and Derby Chauffeurs and I hope he enjoys our flowers. I have included his details below so if you are looking to hire VIP cars for any event or journey then please take a look as there is quite a remarkable fleet to choose from.

I think I’m getting a little excited for the festive period as I’ve gone wreath crazy. They are really enjoyable to make up and as floristry crosses over to crafting it involves a glue gun, my favourite piece of equipment.
I’ve added two more artificial wreaths to the collection which are a little smaller than some of the others I have done. These are 14″ (35cm)and include cream and gold decorations, a glittery rose, hypericum berries and wooden Christmas toppers. The red one pictured is decorated with artificial poinsettia flowers and red berries.
I also made a flower arrangement within a cracker, this can be made in artificial or fresh flowers and makes a great table decoration or a feature on a mantlepiece. The crackers are available in gold (pictured), silver and red.
