I was delighted to work with Eden Barn again for Rosie and Jonny's wedding florals. This venue was incredible when I last visited, but they've made even more improvements to the indoor barn and in particular the outdoor space, so now its simply... breath-taking! A real wow factor venue and wedding barn of dreams!
Rosie, like most brides, came to her bridal appointments with her mum. Honestly, mums and best friends make a great companion and will always give you a valuable opinion when it comes to flowers. Men, not so much, but that's not to say I haven't gotten a few grooms excited about their buttonholes! (Now there's a sentence I never thought I'd say!)
It was such a joy to always welcome Rosie and mum round for a cuppa and to talk bouquets. Especially when she told me about her new pooch! Second consultations are just like catching up with an old friend! :)
I loved creating Rosie's artificial flower bouquets and silk buttonholes as she decided to go for a pastel theme but with pale apricots, a gorgeous alternative to just whites and blush pinks. She wanted whimsical (again, totally my vibe) finished with a teeny ribbon and no long stems so the bouquet was ALL about the blooms.
As well as the buttonholes and the rest of the bridal party flowers, Rosie decided to hire a bespoke artificial garland for her registrar table and then to be reused for the top table. Did you know that you can hire my silk flowers from me as well as buy? It makes your money go further when you hire, so you don't have to compromise for less on your big day. Our artificial flowers don't wilt, so you can hire and keep them for the whole wedding weekend if needed. Silk flowers are a luxury item, that's cost effective and will leave your guests in awe that they're fake flowers.
I made the artificial garland from faux olives leaves, silk eucalyptus, fake ranunculus and roses, and I've got to say, it's my favourite faux garland to date.
And let’s not forget the cutest artificial baby’s breath floral crown for the flower girl that she now has to keep forever and can play dress up with whenever she likes! Our silk flowers are soft and lightweight so they're perfect for flower crowns for brides and bridesmaids alike. Yet another reason to love artificial flowers.
