As we’re now firmly in autumn, and the colder days are setting in, I thought it would be a perfect time to share with you some of our amazing work over the summer.
I say it every year, but this year has been the busiest summer for weddings ever! We had heaps of couples that had to postpone due to covid, but also lots of other bookings too. We also tried to help lots of couples who had been let down by florists across Plymouth, so ended up with lots of last minute bookings too! It’s been a pretty full on year so far, with little time for blogging! So here we are, the first blog since January!
I’ve been super lucky to find two amazing florists to join the team, Amy & Hannah (#2!), who have made the summer easier alongside Sarah, Delia & myself. If someone told me five years ago we’d have been a team of five by now, I would never have believed them!
We’ll share just a couple of our favourites today, and hope that we get time to share another couple in the coming month.
First up! Katherine & Sam.
This lovely couple married at Knightor Winery in St Austell earlier this year, when flowers were crossing over from spring to summer and we were able to use a gorgeous mix of peonies and anemones, with stunning roses and jasmine alongside them. The muted soft pinks worked so well with the striking black and white of the anemone and grey eucalyptus.
Knightor is a beautiful small venue with stunning outdoor space for the ceremony overlooking a pond. They also produce all their own wine – winner! Our own lovely florist Amy is getting hitched there next year, and we can’t wait!
Our second wedding to share for today was for the beautiful Heather & Rob at one of our favourite venues, Polhawn Fort.
Heather & Rob travelled from London to marry on this most stunning Cornish coast, and had the most beautiful summer themed day.
Heather asked us to use seasonal blooms in lilac and pink shades, and left the decision of flowers we used to us, we love it when a bride says this! We suggested beautiful peonies, of course, along with scabia, stocks, astilbe and foliages that included mint and eucalyptus.
Polhawn is one of our favourite venues, with the backdrop of the dramatic coastline, there really are very few venues like it. If you’re venue hunting, then we strongly suggest you add this to your list!
