Much more weddings to come this year!

So here’s a peek at what I’ve been up to these past weeks; as always no two events are ever the same, because no two couples ever are.

If you think the best has been and gone, you’re wrong, there really is SO much more to come this year. Oh and for the record next year, I really am slowing down…!


April Weddings

April weddings.

April was a beauty, full to brimming with gorgeousness, it’s farewell to the daffodils, blue bells, muscari and snowdrops for another year and hello to the plum, cherry and apple blossom, and a warm welcome the peony season. 

Frankly it’s scandalous at how ridiculously pretty peonies really are so many of my brides are clamouring for them in their wedding bouquets. Coral Charm and Coral Sunset remain my firm favourites as they fade from deep coral pinks to palest parchment inside a week; a beautiful sight I never tire of watching unfold, that said the pure white, pink and blush varieties are classic staples for any bridal ensemble.

I am incorporating gorgeous tulips into many of my bouquets and arrangements as well as selling them in hand tied gift bouquets too. Bulb-on for a longer vase life, the bulb also makes a nice feature inside a clear vase big hitting blousy numbers to captivate the look of an arrangement; they surpass any requirement for a rose or other focal flower alongside them.

Wine Shop Window Display

I cannot believe that it is almost the middle of August, but the summer is not over yet.

We have been asked to make the plant display for the well-known wine shop in Mayfair.

It’s sad, but the plants shows the “turning season”, such like – cabbage rose, chilly peppers, cyclamens, hydrangea, all these magical autumn plants and colours, the ambience, deep earthy tones.




Wedding Day

A wedding day is one of the most beautiful days in your life. At Dawn’s Designer Flowers I appreciate this beyond words; to me your bouquet is an exquisite object of beauty. The flowers you choose should say something about you and combine perfectly with your dress. I can create many styles from a pretty country garden hand-tied posy to an exotic shower bouquet; nothing is too much trouble for flowers as important as these.

From our initial meeting right up until the arrival of your bouquets, ceremony and reception flowers, I can combine your ideas and aspirations and create flowers that set the scene and say so much about you and your day. From an informal gathering to a lavish extravaganza, every wedding should have gorgeous flowers.

Mad May

May 2016. What can I say? It was a corker; last year I had just 3 weddings, this year there were nine. The thing about being a self-employed event florist is that you can never predict the spread of work.

It has to be said whilst I typically work alone, when there are three weddings inside a week.
So here’s a little bit of what May looked like through the lens of my camera:
