REAL WEDDING – Fiona + Richard – A Classic Wedding

Fiona and I used to work together, back when I was a lawyer! When she became engaged, I was thrilled when she asked me to quote her for wedding flowers. Fiona was great to work with. She knew she wanted a classic wedding, with red roses and white flowers, and we worked together to create what it was she had in mind. Her bouquet included gorgeous Red Naomi roses, white Avalanche roses, white Freesias and white Eustoma. It looked, and smelt, amazing! Fiona loved it so much she ordered a similar bouquet from me for her mother on Mother’s day 🙂

Similar bouquets but on a smaller scale made up the table centrepieces. These were  essentially small hand tied bouquets. I had provided some wrapped up paper and ribbons, ready for the guests to take home the flowers at the end of the night. A very popular option at the moment 🙂

Fiona and Richard met through work, and got engaged at Walton Hall and Gardens during a fancy picnic. They got married at Henleaze Trinity United Reformed Church, and had their reception in Old Down Manor, in Bristol. I decorated the pillars and the ladies from the Church decorated the rest of the Church. They were so friendly and made me really welcome whenever I’d pop into the Church, I enjoyed every visit! Lucy and her team at Old Down Manor were also great and really helpful, and it is a stunning wedding venue!

Fiona’s advice to couples planning their wedding:

Enjoy every moment of the preparations as it is all part of the fun.

Make sure you spend quality time together in the lead up, where wedding chat/planning is banned!
