REAL WEDDING – Izzi + Chris – Jenny Packham & bright flowers

2016-09-16_0026.jpg

I met Izzi and Chris at a wedding fair I did last year. They were initially due to be married next summer, but when they found out there would soon be a happy arrival, they decided to move the wedding forward. As such, when Izzi contacted me for her wedding flowers, the wedding was due to take place just over a month later. I already had a two week holiday booked in so we met just before I went and got talking flowers and planning. (more…)

New Product: Terms & Conditions Template for Florists

Terms and Conditions Template for Florists - www.emeraldandjadeflowers.com

As you may or may not know, before becoming a florist, I used to be a lawyer. Having a background in law has made me really aware of how important it is to be able to protect our business and ourselves. We spend so much time pouring energy and money into our business, it is crucial to have things in place to protect it.

Having recently spent a lot of time working on my own terms and conditions, it occurred to me that this was the perfect opportunity to combine the skills of my old career for the benefit of my new line of work, and help others in the same industry.

I am therefore pleased to announce the launch of my new product: Terms and Conditions Template for Florists

This is a 7-page long Word document, which can be edited to reflect your business needs. All of this for just £30!

Of course, this does not replace seeking professional legal advice, but it will provide you with a good, solid base when drafting your terms and conditions

To place your order, please place your order via our online form, and read our terms and conditions beforehand.

Merci!

REAL WEDDING – Kirsty + Dom – Bright & Vibrant

Bristol wedding florist // Emerald & Jade Flowers - www.emeraldandjadeflowers.com // photography by http://dp-photography.co.uk/

Kirsty contacted me via my website, when she was looking for a wedding florist. Kirsty told me that their wedding was to be fairly informal, and as such they didn’t have a colour scheme. She also did not want a formal looking bouquet. Other than that, she told me she loved the photos of my work and so was happy to let me decide on what would look beautiful for her wedding.

I therefore chose some beautiful bright and vibrant flowers for her, and I loved the result! The venue also had a table with turquoise legs which really looked incredible with the bright pinks and yellows. (more…)

[Styled Shoot] Bright, Fusion Wedding at Berwick Lodge

Emerald & Jade Flowers, Bristol Wedding Florist emeraldandjadeflowers.com // Photography by http://viktoriakuti.com/

I met Viktoria through Facebook a little while back, and we got chatting when she opened up her beautiful studio in Bristol late last year. Later on, she contacted me about this beautiful styled shoot she was planning with Bristol based stylist Gina Jones. They were looking to create a fusion inspired styled wedding, for which they needed bright flowers. I knew from the start I really wanted to take part in this shoot, and when I saw the final photos, I was so, so excited about them!

I also got to discover Berwick Lodge in Bristol which is absolutely gorgeous! The shoot was done in January when the weather was a little grey, but between the venue, the amazing outfits, the happy smiling models and a few bright flowers, it looked absolutely gorgeous!

REAL WEDDING – Fiona + Richard – A Classic Wedding

Emerald & Jade Flowers // Photography: http://www.caroline-alexander.co.uk/

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!

[Photoshoot] Modern City Wedding with a Vintage Vibe

2016-01-20_0010.jpg

My first photoshoot was an amazing experience. Since setting up my own business, I had been eager to meet a photographer who would take some beautiful photos of my flowers, and organising a photoshoot seemed to be the perfect way to do so!

I met Charlotte from Bristol Contemporary Photography and Sarah from The Rosie Shaw Cake Company at the first wedding fayre I did. We instantly got on well and it wasn’t long before we began organising a photoshoot to showcase our work.

Kate from Heartfelt Vintage provided the dresses for the shoot, which are incredible, original vintage wedding dresses. She even had a photo of the original bride wearing one of the dresses! If you are a fan of vintage clothing, you absolutely must go and see Kate’s shop up in Clifton, it’s a true little gem and they even serve cake!

Rosie from Goldbrick House gave us access to the whole venue, including the top floor with gorgeous views across Bristol. I have always loved Goldbrick House, not only for its food and cocktails but also for the beautiful building it is, with its hidden corners and gorgeous staircases. It was perfect for our Modern Wedding with a Vintage Vibe theme 🙂

Emily from Able Mabel (who also made the red fascinator pictured below) and Claire from Claire Clark Make Up work closely with Kate from Heartfelt Vintage, and are experts in the Vintage look. When creating the three looks we were after from the 20s, 30s and 50s, they made each model look amazing and truly reflective of that era.

I was also extremely grateful that 3 of my friends agreed to model for us for the day, thank you girls, you look amazing!! (and of course thank you to Mike as well, the handsome groom!)

[Photoshoot] Clevedon Hall and Clevedon Pier

Emerald & Jade Flowers // Bristol Florist www.emeraldandjadeflowers.com

Last year, I was invited to take part in a photoshoot organised by Kayleigh Adams Photography at Clevedon Hall. It was my first time in this incredible wedding venue, and I was absolutely taken away with its’ grandeur and beauty! From the stunning grounds (complete with deer!), view on the sea, to the beautiful rooms inside, I can only imagine that any wedding there would be magical!

For the shoot, I was lucky to work with an incredible team of women. I met Kayleigh at a wedding show earlier that year, and was instantly drawn to her stall as she had made it so cosy and welcoming, it was impossible not to go over and say hi! And I’m glad I did as she as lovely a person as she is a talented photographer! Kayleigh organised this shoot and the suppliers involved with it.

Kayleigh was keen to work with Longfield Hospice, who have a bridal shop in Stroud. So yes, all of these dresses are pre-loved, and available to buy at amazing prices whilst all going to a good cause, can’t get much better than that really!
