The second Wedding of the weekend was Sarah's, I had been looking forward to doing this Wedding all year! Sarah had chosen to incorporate David Austin Roses into her bouquet. I have always loved these Roses but never had the chance to work with them so when Sarah walked in I was over the moon!
The Roses were delivered on the Thursday before the Wedding in a posh box. The courier man had to sit down when I told him how much moneys worth of Roses were sat in that box!
They came tightly packed & VERY small. I was wondering how & when they were going to look like the big blousy Roses that people love so much.
We took then out of the packaging & they started to open.
Friday morning & they were looking more like it! The smell that was coming out of the box was amazing. I didn't dare took them though!
