Yet another one of my couples who had their plans altered and changed numerous times due to the coronavirus pandemic were E & M - a couple that I have known for a number of years through their families love of flowers. Despite the stress of trying to jump through hoops and plans being very last minute, the wedding day was a beauty!
The thought of having no flowers at a wedding may seem strange to some, but with foliage-only botanicals becoming ever more popular at events across the UK, it's not as unusual as you may think. C & E were very relaxed about the botanical styling for their special day, which was to be based on a foliage-only wedding and reflecting their love of elegant simplicity. Over a pint of ale in The Fox at Hevingham, I met C & E - a young couple, who were so friendly and chatty, I could've sat with them all evening and had much more
When I first met up with this super friendly, ultra quirky couple (and their adorable doggo Moose!) I knew immediately that I would love to work with them on their big day. Anyone who asks for their wedding venue to be made to 'look like Jurassic park' has got to be a winner, right!? Styling a botanical wedding is something I specialise in, as I often include a variety of plants and leaves alongside flowers. Over a delicious breakfast at The Boars in Spooner Row, we chatted not just about the wedding, wedding flowers and styling but also about their jobs, house,
For pure indulgence and classic romance, what could be better than a Christmas wedding? F & P were very much of the mindset 'go big or go home' and they embraced the Christmas theme fully with extravagant decor throughout their venue. Kimberley Hall, with its elegant interiors and sweeping staircase, was the ideal setting for such an event, and in December 2019, it was turned into a winter wonderland. I first chatted with this gorgeous couple (I mean, they literally could both be models) at a wedding fair back in February, and when they described the day they were planning I
October is a month often overlooked for weddings, however, with the changing of the leaves in full swing and sunny days still present, it's a month worth considering for future brides and grooms. J & A set their date in the middle of the month and were rewarded with a beautiful fall day
A grand wedding in the heart of the Cotswolds with all the bells and whistles is a dream of many brides and grooms. Stanway House is a particularly impressive setting with backdrops of weathered stone walls, exquisite gardens and a church straight out of a fairy tale. For M & J, this was a dream come true in May 2019. Organising wedding flowers can be complicated for many couples, with endless choices of what's in season, which blooms match the colour scheme, the bouquet size etc. However, from long distance it's even harder, and the bride and I spent weeks pinging
If you're looking for modern yet laid back wedding venue with plenty of outdoor space and glamping for your guests, Happy Valley in Norfolk should be on your list. The beautiful grounds, airy Dutch barn and rural location are what attracted O & L to this special place for their big day in June 2019. I met with the bride at one of my favourite hot-chocolate drinking spots in Norwich; Cafe 33, where along with her daughter we chatted about the relaxed wedding she was planning. There are few brides that have ever been as chill as she was, pretty much
