I’ve been remiss in writing here because there’s been a lot of work. It culminated this weekend in five weddings. Beth and Niki’s weddings were such a whirlwind that I didn’t even take photos. There were a lot of garden roses. Next was Jessica: possibly the most trusting bride ever. Even a week ago she was managing to laugh about the fact that she had no idea what her flowers would be like. The brief was 1920s glamour. I like to think of the bouquet as the Clara Bow of posies. Think pale mink shades punctuated with the blackest red chocolate cosmos like Clara’s lipstick.

I love gold. Give me gold over silver any day. I fully embraced the gold leaf for this job, so much so, it’s still on my fingernails. And the sequins will be turning up for months on the studio floor.

This bride was a hoot and I wish her and her groom every happiness.

Hours later I was delivering a very different wedding for Natalie, a friend of a friend and another laid back bride. My studio is conveniently located five minutes from a dahlia farm and I’ve been taking full advantage. Giant local dahlias made it into both of Saturday’s weddings

And Lauren wed yesterday. With a bouquet of lavender shades, garden roses and Jasmine.

And in the weeks I have neglected to keep up my posts, these happened…

A little picture-heavy today but more words to follow soon…
