A splash of colour.......

As promised yesterday I thought I would tell you about our wedding flowers, they may be considered a small thing but defiantly deserve a post all of their own!
Our wedding flowers were really important to me as they were the only source of colour in the whole day. I wanted vintage looking garden flowers in muted lilacs and pinks and lots of ‘dusty’looking foliage.
After contacting several florists I was starting to think I was talking a strange language (seriously you should see some of the photos I was shown!)

My Brother’s girlfriend put us in contact with a school friend of hers, Johnny, who was just starting his own florist business and after a 10 minute phone conversation I knew I had found my man!

I was so impressed I let him do his own thing along my theme and am so glad I did! We had so many complements and even the registrar said they were the best flowers she had ever seen and took Johnny’s card!

Here are some photos for you to see for yourself!

(our professional photos are still to come! for now these are a few that other people took!)

The table arrangements were placed onto huge, tall martini glasses!


The registrar table arrangement later went to the top table! The mantel arrangements were amazing!!


We gave the arrangements away to our 'special' people so that they could be enjoyed properly. Here is Victoria's family with their booty!

Vitoria's mum also took charge of my bouquet to try to dry it for me (I have to say I was gutted that it wouldn't stay the same forever!)

Don't they look pleased!!!


Have a lovely weekend whatever your plans are! (I'm working!)

Lots of Love

Hiya, Kelly!
It's been ages since I popped in; my apologies.
Just wanted to let you know I'm thinking of you and your fist bump :D You are due in January like I was with Ivy, so I would have been at the very same stage as you this time last year. I'm very excited for you!
Hope you and your guy are well.
Look after bump and I'll pop back next time I'm on Blogger :D
Lucy. Xx
