A perfect Autumnal day
Sarah and Simon’s civil partnership on a day in late September at the Temple of Minerva in Victoria Park Botanical gardens in Bath.
The sun shone in on the temple doorway where Sarah and Simon said their life long words to one another. It was utterly romantic and what an honour to create these flowers for them too..
Embracing the elements, as well as one another
Arthur and Ivana’s wedding was set amidst a blustery, wild and leafy October day in the countryside, not far from the Dorset coastline, which felt beautifully in keeping with the romantic and dramatic style of this cool bohemian wedding. Looking back at the images, I am completely in love with the colours and textures Ivana and Arthur chose.

Sumptuous and dramatic tones using chocolate cosmos, black and scarlet dahlias, golden kangaroo paw, lots of textured silvery toned leaves, such as mimosa and cotoneaster and tied with a scarlet velvet ribbon. The white lacy in appearance cow parsley worked beautifully with Ivana’s intricately crocheted handmade white wedding dress.

Blink and you miss it. Christmas completely ran away with me this year, hence no photographic evidence of it but into January and I’m finally getting a grip (be it the 31st)!
In this strange world of floristry, spring flowers are available in the market and they seem so fitting for this time of year, lots of fresh young light greens and pale tones. Anemones, Tulips, Ranunculus, lime green Viburnum, Hyacinths, Liliac and that’s just the tip of it. I love the blue/black centres of these tissue-like white Anemones (below) with the blue of the Hyacinths and silvery Eucalyptus. The combinations are endless and it doesn’t matter how many I make, I still get excited about seeing the outcome.
Oh and these ‘Kloon’ coral Ranunculus, they just bring a warmth to the design which is pretty satisfying in my mind! Give them a few days and they expand to Peony size proportions. They are actually often mistaken for Peonies and can be a stunning early season alternative. Look out for the ‘Kloon’ variety as they’re the extra blousey kind.
Colours are turning!
I love it when the seasons change and nature’s colours are in flux. There’s definitely a distinct change of palette around here today!
