Now where do I start with regards to this wonderful couple…… I met Gemma about a year before their wedding and from the start we hit it off, after obviously chatting about the details of the wedding flowers, we got chatting about love and life over several cups of tea as if we had known each other for years. Over the coming months we met up a few times to catch up regarding the wedding and our friendship bloomed & have met up on social terms during the lead up to the big day & have since.
With friendship of a client comes added pressure to make the day as perfect as possible so in addition to the normal worries about my weddings I had a few sleepless nights worrying (it’s just my nature, not a lack of confidence in what I do more just the fact I care enormously about my business and my job it’s my passion), I needn’t have worried so much as Gemma was a real pleasure to work for and to get to know, needless to say Gemma had nothing but compliment for me & the work my team and I produced and they were over the moon with the results on the day.
Gemma came to me with a photo of a bouquet she liked & we worked the rest of the designs around that, with the freedom to produce some bespoke designs for other aspects of the flowers. I mocked up the bouquet months prior to the wedding so Gemma could see first hand how the flowers & foliage worked together. She opted for Sunflowers, Cerise Germinis, Carthamus, Thistle, Mango & Schwarzwalder Calla Lilies, Hypericum Berries & Cymbidium Orchids, this variety of flowers provided lovely forms & textures to the bouquets. For the rest of the weddings flower designs we used a small selection of them to make the Flower Girls Circlet & Button Holes & all for the Centre Pieces teamed with exotic foliage.
When Gemma & I first met she hadn’t yet found a photographer, I recommended Lemonade Pictures, luckily that was the only date that month they had available & I believe Gemma pipped someone else to the post for the booking.
We had the pleasure of joining Gemma & Gavin with their friends & family in celebrating their big day with an invite to the evening reception – we had a boogie and a couple of drinks, a fabulous time was had by all.
Congratulations to a lovely couple xx
