WOW – spring is almost over!

Yes we are nearly out of Spring and into Summer and we’ve been a bit inundated with weddings and events – so much so that I’ve not had a chance to update these pages

I’m going to post some photographs from a few of last year’s weddings first as I like to look back as well as forward. I love to see shots of our happy couples as often we’re well out of the way by the time they arrive on the scene

The first collection of shots is from Nic and Katherine’s wedding this time last year at the beautiful St James’ in Clerkenwell and The Larder restaurant in nearby St John Street. It had to be the hottest day of the year and we had a tough job keeping the Peonies from opening too quickly! The day was run perfectly by the ever calm Helen at Helen Carter Weddings

Katherine wanted a bright selection of flowers and we certainly managed to get that right – hot pink Peonies and Roses to match the heat of the day AND the bridesmaids’ dresses were teamed with paler pink Peonies and Astrantia and fragrant Jasmine adorned the church pews

Moving to The Larder after the ceremony, the colour theme continued to co-ordinate with the bright decor at the restaurant. So we had mixed posies of Peonies, Roses, Astrantia, Sage, Rosemary and flowering Mint in shiny silver vases on each table

Nic was a brave groom – involved in the flower decision right from the start, he insisted on having a pink Peony buttonhole. So we gave him a neat small one but the flower gradually opened more and more to end up almost the size of a saucer
