Angels decending from above...

It's no secret, I love doing something different. The Fusion Flowers International designer of the year competition is an amazing opportunity to really get your teeth in to something different. The first year I competed I designed a pair of angel wings as a bridal piece. Mostly to be different but also because I have a love of wings and feathers. 
I didn't receive any awards for the wings, but I have had so many wonderful comments about them and they have been shared by florists, designers and friends all over the world.

That just picked look....

Ruth asked us to create her wedding flowers for her and told us she wanted a country garden feel to her flowers. Ruth and David were married in the Kingsmill hotel in Inverness. Bouquets for her and the bridesmaids and a bouquet for her little girl Rhea. She had bird cages for her table centres that she wanted us to put flowers into. 

We decided to go with shades of pinks with some Tanicitum to really bring through the wild flower look and to tie in with the gold theme running through the wedding decorations. Rhea also carried a bouquet of Tanicitum.

Thank you to Susan at SDM Photography for her pictures!

Sugary pinks!

We were delighted that the lovely Farrah asked us to do the flowers for her Wedding last August. At a previous wedding fayre Farrah had spotted our lovely waxed roses and decided those were the flowers for her! 

Farrah had a lovely dress with lace detail. So to soften her bouquet I added some wax flower and some Astilbe. Her maids wore a candy pink, so I mixed up the flower shades in their bouquets.

The roses were coated in wax and had a light irredescant glitter to give just a slight shimmer. 

We hope you agree that Farrah, Susan and Kerry all look stunning! 

 Susan, Farrah and Kerry.
