Nice day for a White Wedding

Being passionate about flowers- there are so many colours and textures to choose from- but there is something about a "white wedding" whether its the crispness and clean lines that appeals or prehaps it just shouts out BRIDE!

This is a classic combination of white bridal flowers, which oozes traditional romance. The shower shape bouquet never really dates and looks so elegant with a aline dress.
Here a classic look follows onto the reception flowers, cake and pedastals. I just love the contrast of the whit with the lime and dark greens

Spring Has Sprung.... and it smells so nice! April 10th 2010

Yesterday was the wedding of Marie, a Church service followed by a reception at Birchwood Golf Club. Marie wanted a rustic spring look of the lovely seasonal flowers including daffodils and tulips. The vibrant yellows were off set with zingy lime green and soft ivory. The perfume from the roses along with the sweet daffodils and narcisscuss was just lovely. I arrived at Marie's house to be greeting by her Dad all proud and excited in his Morning Suit. The Flower Girl was also ready and looked realy pretty in a cream dress and matching shrug and lots of curls.

The table centres were simple glass cubes filled with compact domes of spring yellows and lime- it smelt amazing! I wrapped raffia around the cubes to give a rustic contrast to the glass. Another lovely touch was placing a cluster of daffodils tied with raffia on each napkin place setting. Cute.
It was a gorgeous sunny spring day and the views accross the grounds was so pretty.

I have to mention the gorgeous cake by Nicola at Hall of Cakes - truly beautiful. The lace effect on the icing was intricate and just lovely
