Spring is in the air and Inspiration is everywhere.

January 13th, 2015

  Looking out of the window on a wet weekday in January doesn’t exactly fill me with wedding inspiration. I have to start skimming through the real wedding section and leafing through magazines to get that Off To Wed feeling. But give me a warm summers day and the scent and sights of a British […]

FLOWERS ARE FOR GIRLS

November 26th, 2014

The man holds onto his sword as the woman clings to her flowers. Sounds strange, especially if you think about that line for too long.

PETITE BOUQUET – GRAND IMPACT

July 8th, 2014

Giant bouquets and enormous bowls of flowers don’t always make for the perfect wedding decoration. Sometimes it’s the subtle approach to floral design that has the greatest impact. Hayfever, the commonly used name for allergic rhinitis. Although you probably don’t care too much about it’s real name, if you suffer with hayfever you’re probably too […]

COLOUR

May 25th, 2014

FLOWERS OFFER AN EXCITING INJECTION OF COLOUR. In some ways getting married is a lot like launching a new brand. Seriously, think about it – there’s a big party, freebies are given away (favours), the stationery follows similar brand guidelines throughout the invitations, order of service and table plan.
