What a few weeks it’s been since my last update – things have been hectic, so this post is long overdue!
The wedding I had on at the end of May went very well, with the weather taking a change for the better for once just in time for the Bride. It was an especially busy day for me, as we had to deliver the Bridal Party Flowers, then go and set up Church Flowers and Pew Bows, go over to the venue to set up there, and then back to the Church in time for the end of the wedding to collect the Church Flowers. As an extra surprise for the bride we then rushed the church flowers over to the venue and set them up there before the guests (and newly married couple) arrived – she was expecting us to collect them and take them home with us, but it seemed a shame for her not to get the full days benefit from them. She messaged me afterwards saying how nice, and unexpected, it was to arrive to see the large Pedestal Arrangements pride of place on the stage, just behind the Top Table and in front of the disco. The full wedding pics have been uploaded onto the relevant pages, but here’s a taster of the days theme.
A few days later, I received a surprise of my own with a Bride whose Wedding and Venue Flowers I did last year e-mailed me to tell me her wedding (and my flowers!) had been featured in an online editorial. To say I was thrilled to have been part of this, with a mention at the end, would be the understatement of the year – I was beaming for days afterwards. You may have already seen the various Star Wars themed items on the site, all made completely from Gypsophilia (and Lego Figures!), but for the story behind the wedding and its theme, the feature can be seen in full at http://offbeatbride.com/2014/04/uk-star-wars-wedding#.U5V5UL6kDaE.facebook
This week has been a little quieter and more down to Earth so have been busy with artificial flower orders, although I did make my first loose Nan sympathy frame, with matching loose heart for a customer that came to me after I was recommended to them by a regular client – it’s always nice knowing that people like my designs enough to suggest their family and friends use me
Hope you all have a good weekend – I’m off to make 50 foam rose buttonholes that need to be posted tonight, get ready for the Summer Fayre at the local primary school in Clayhanger and then spend the rest of the weekend in the sun I think!
