Every so often we get an update about the flower market form out suppliers and we thought that this weeks was particularly interesting, so we are here to share the news:
- Firstly, tulip season is coming to an end. Most, but not all, colours and sorts will be unavailable. Some outdoor Tulips can still be obtained but not for long, and there are too few colours of mixed Tulips to create a decent mix; you will only be able to buy one colour at a time.
- Seasonal products are in high supply and demand. The first Dutch hanging “Amaranthus”, the Aquilegia, Alchemilla, Ajania, Astilbe, Dahlia, Callistephus, Dianthus, Eupathorium, and Green Trick are seen on auction more and more every day.
In November of last year I was invited to arrange the flowers for Lindsey and Richard’s wedding. We brought JJ in his stylish red coat along to help us, and as you can see he looks thrilled!
Lindsey chose a stylish white theme of beautiful David Austin Patience roses, sweet scented Vitality and Alabaster roses, adding cream and yellow colours using double lissianthus, snapdragons, phlox, pom pom roses, buttermilk freesia, alchemela, and foliages.
They got married at St. Michael’s Church in Marbury followed by a champagne reception in the oak room at Wrenbury Hall and a sumptuous wedding breakfast in the dramatic draped Orangery.
Everyone had a lovely day and we wish them all the best!

Last May I was invited to make the beautiful flowers for Robbie and Claire’s wedding at Haslington Hall. It was a stunning day that I was delighted to be a part of.
Claire chose a simple, stylish theme of white O’Hara roses, lily of the valley, and white peonies with a hint of pale peach.

Here are some photos (kindly provided by http://www.davidstubbsphotography.co.uk/) from John and Di’s Wedding at Nunsmere Hall.
The theme for this wedding was classic and sophisticated with purples, cream, and whites. We used purple and white calla lilies, purple double lissianthus, purple hydrangea, purple phlox and ocean song, and avalanche and super bubble roses.
On his blog, David Stubbs wrote:
“Di and her bridesmaids got ready at The Mere Resort before having their wedding service at St Wilfrids RC Church in Northwich. The bridesmaids wore long purple chiffon dresses that worked so well with their subtle Scottish theme. Scottish Thistle was arranged within their bouquets. The flowers were by the very talented Emma Fawcett-Eustace of Cheshire. We all then headed deeper into Cheshire for their Nunsmere Hall wedding reception. The weather was always a little dubious and it was expected to rain later in the day. Just as we finished doing some small family group shots, the heavens opened and it poured down for around 5 minutes. John and Di were still outside at this time and had to dive under one of Nunsmere’s many garden arrangements while an usher sprinted off to fetch an umbrella. It was well worth myself waiting outside in the rain, for their return journey… see for yourself below.”
It was an absolutely fantastic day that I was delighted to be part of!
Today I’m sharing some lovely photos of Sarah and Jonathan’s wedding!
The bridal bouquet consisted of small, white Akito Roses, Ruscus and Gypsophila which complemented the details on the wedding dress and was bound with white ribbon and pinned with pearl headed pins. The bridesmaid bouquet was similar in design but just a smaller version.
The two buttonholes for the groom and the best man were White Roses and traditional in style. The church arch was decorated with a spectacular floral display that reflected the white and green theme of the wedding.
The church screen for the service was also decorated with flowers that were connected with Ivy and Soft Ruscus swaging. Two pedestal arrangements were also used to decorate the inside of the church and were then moved to the marquee reception.
Goldfish Bowl Vases were used to create eight table centres filled with white and green flowers and lots of natural foliage and blooms.

I’ve chosen some buttonholes to share with you today…
