Wedding of Jo 13th June

Second Wedding of the weekend was Jo's. Her theme was black & white.
The Wedding took place at The City Rooms in Leicester. I have never been there before only walked by it millions of times & it was fantastic inside, a real hidden gem.

Male Buttonholes of 'Avalanche' Roses with Ivy Leaves.

The Ladies wore an 'Avalanche' Rose with Ivy Leaves & I added black beads to make them different from the men & to tie in with the black & white theme.

The Flower Girl carried a Star Wand decorated with an 'Avalanche' Rose & Ivy Leaves & finished with black ribbon.

Goldfish Bowls with 'Avalanche' Roses hand-tied & sat on the top. These were then given away as gifts.

Jo opted for a simple Hand-tied Bouquet of 'Avalanche' Roses with black beads placed randomly amongst the Roses & the stems bound with black ribbon.

Packed & ready!

'Thank You' Hand-tieds in water in the theme of the Wedding using white Roses, Gerberas with black centres, stocks & Peonies with white tissue & a black box & finished with my signature Butterfly in black. All matching perfectly!

Wedding of Ruth & Rob 12th June

Today was the Wedding of Ruth & Rob. I did the flowers for Ruth's Sister, Claire, last July so it was great to be able to do hers as well.
I loved the colours & flowers that Ruth chose.

Rob, the Grooms, Buttonhole of a white 'Akito' Rose with blue Hydrangea & Nigella & Ivy leaves to finish it.
The other Male Buttonholes were just a white 'Akito' Rose with Ivy Leaves.

Ruth's Hand-tied Bouquet of white 'Akito' Roses, white Peonies, blue Nigella, blue Agapanthus, blue Hydrangea & finished with variegated Hosta Leaves.

The stems were bound with white ribbon.

The Bridesmaid's carried smaller versions but I left out the Blue Agapanthus, just to make Ruth's abit more special!

The stems of their Bouquets were bound with blue ribbon which matched their dresses.

Bride & Bridesmaid Bouquet.

All packed & waiting to be delivered.

Wedding of Elena & Jim 5th June

Today was the Wedding of Elena & Jim.

I had met Elena nearly two years ago, they both live in Australia & she was in the UK sorting out the Wedding. Once Elena had flown back to Australia I dealt with her Mum, Janet.
Everything was sorted very quickly as they knew exactly what they wanted & I just needed to meet with Elena when she was back in the UK a month before the Wedding.

They chose Rothley Court Hotel for their Ceremony & Reception. The grounds are wonderful there. We had a VERY hot day on the 5th June so they must have bought the sunshine with them!

Large balls of flowers were placed on top of a clear Vase with a round mirrored plate underneath & tea lights to finish it off.

The colour theme matched the curtains perfectly!

And the carpet!

The Templar Room at has lovely dark panelled walls so the colours worked wonderfully with them.

In the balls I used 'Old Dutch' & 'Vendella' Roses, white Freesia, lime green Viburnum, dark pink Cymbidium Orchids, Eucalyptus & Ivy.

The Top Table arrangement of cream 'Vendella' & 'Old Dutch' Roses, Viburnum, pink Cymbidium Orchids, white Freesia, Eucalyptus & trailing Ivy.

The Top Table arrangement was also used on the Ceremony Table.

The Bride & Groom

The Bride & her Bridesmaid's, the Roses look fab with their dresses!

Wedding of Laurie & Dave 7th June

The weather was perfect for a Wedding today! And I am pleased because the most sweetest couple were getting married.
The Ladies flowers were delivered to Pillings Lock Marina in Barrow Upon Soar/Quorn (it's kind of in the middle of both!). I hadn't been there before but it was brilliant, I really wanted to sit out in the roasting hot sun on the decking & have some lunch over looking the Marina but duty called!
The Bride & her Bridesmaid's had rented the 'Penthouse' above the restaurant to get ready in.

Buttonholes of white 'Akito' Roses & green Ivy leaves.

Dave, the Groom, had a white 'Akito' Rose with Freesia added to match him special!

The Flower Girls had a Wand of white Freesia, a white 'Akito' Rose Ivy leaves & finished with white ribbon & a trailing bow.

I think they are rather cute!

The Bridesmaid's Bouquets of white 'Akito' Roses finished with white ribbon.

Laurie chose White 'Akito' Roses with white Freesia for her Bouquet. She provided her own ribbon which I finished with a trailing bow.

Looking beautiful in their box!

'Tissued up' & waiting to go!
