Love 'em or hate 'em!

Brassica or Ornamental Cabbage, I am finding that people either really like or really hate them.

For example, I recently made up a Bouquet of flowers for a customer who was giving them to his wife for a special Anniversary, I put a few of the Brassica in. From talking to him I got the impression she didn't like 'traditional' flowers so I thought these were something abit different.

OH MY GOSH how I was wrong!! I came into work the next day to find a very nice (major sarcasm used there!) answer phone message from the recipient of the Bouquet & boy she wasn't happy because there were cabbages in it!

I don't know whether it was she just didn't like them or was just plain ignorant & thought I had actually stuck a cabbage in there for the hell of it. The word ungrateful come to mind.

This is one of the many joys of working with the general public, theres nothing as queer as folk!

More Photo's from Cheryl & Tom's Wedding 29th May 2009

I now have some of the professional photographs of the flowers in action!

I really like this photo of the Bride Cheryl wearing her Wrist Corsage of a white Peony, bright red Hypericum Berries & Greenery.

Bride, Groom, Bridesmaid & Best Man all looking very smart!

Third Wedding - Jackie & Richard 30th May 2009

Everything went swimmingly with this Wedding.
The photographs are great though, didn't really get a chance to wait until the time of the Wedding to get some 'action' shots unfortunately.

The Bridesmaid's carried Hand-tied Bouquets of white Roses, Freesia, mini Calla Lillies & looped Bear Grass. The stems were bound with brown ribbon to match their dresses.
Jackie's Bouquet was a wired structure made from twigs. The Phalenopsis Orchids were then wired onto the twigs. It was quite a patience testing Bouquet! It's a shame I didn't get to see it being held properly.

The male Buttonholes were mini Calla Lillies with Bear Grass loops & twigs to match the Brides Bouquet.
The Ladies wore a Phalenopsis Orchid also with Bear Grass loops & twigs.
All Saint's Church in Loughborough was decorated with white Roses, Greenery & a white & brown bow attached to the Pews.

The reception was at the Yew Lodge Hotel in Kegworth.
The tables were decorated with a tall Lily Vase filled with large Calla Lillies, white Roses, Freesia, Bear Grass & twigs.
