Fairy tale venue for Catherine + Ben’s relaxed wedding // REAL WEDDING

I met Catherine over lunch for her consultation, the moment she told me about her venue I couldn’t wait to see it, it looked like a fairy tale wedding venue, but with a twist, different to any venue I’d worked at. Catherine was after an elegant but relaxed feel with her flowers, with seasonal flowers (thank you Pipley Flowers!) and a few jewel tones to stand out against the bridesmaids’ gorgeous dresses.

When I arrived at the venue, I was completely blown away! It was even more beautiful in real life, with so many unique details!

Shortly after the wedding I saw this sneak preview from Joab Smith Photography, and I couldn’t wait to see the rest of the photos. And oh my… aren’t they absolutely gorgeous!! ♥

What inspired your style for the big day and how would you describe it?

When a bride emails me about wedding flowers, and tells me from the start that she prefers rich, jewel tones such as emerald green and navy blue, paired with bright flowers, I know we’re going to get on just fine! I met Jen and Chris at a wedding fair a little while back, and they got back in touch for their wedding flowers.  They got married at the Bristol Registry Office, and then celebrated at St George’s Hall just off Park Street.

Pastel rustic barn wedding for Lauren + Chris // REAL WEDDING

Today I’m excited to share Lauren + Chris’ pastel, rustic wedding at Kingscote Barn, thanks to Charlotte’s photos from Bristol Contemporary Photography. Lauren had her heart set on a rustic, barn wedding from the start, and I think you’ll agree from the photos that they achieved this beautifully!

Lauren + Chris met at University, and got engaged on their 6 year anniversary at a spa hotel. Chris had made Lauren a photo book and at the end it said “will you marry me?” ♥

For the flowers, Lauren decorated a lot of jars with jute string, burlap and lace. The venue was decorated with a lot of these jam jars, with a variety of pastel colours.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Emerald & Jade Flowers

Happy New Year everyone!

If you’re like me, you might feel as though 2017 has been going on for a long time already, and when people ask you about Christmas you wonder why they’re asking you about something that happened so long ago! Funny how time can go so quickly, yet we are only in mid January…

My intention was always to write a blog post at the end of 2016… It was a great year for Emerald & Jade Flowers, and I am incredibly grateful for everyone who helped support my business, from all the amazing clients I had, friends and family who recommended me to everyone around them, the incredible suppliers I’ve met and worked with… Working in an office as a lawyer seems like a long, long time ago (which I guess in a way, it was). Becoming a Regional Finalist for The Wedding Industry Awards was an amazing cherry to go on top all of that!

Being self-employed, means I am lucky to work when and how I want, which is simply amazing especially when working around two little ones. My eldest turned 6 just before Christmas, and I am so grateful to be able to work around her and her brother, and I am also grateful for my clients who happily let me take them to consultations with me at times were I couldn’t leave them at home.

2016 was a very big year for me, and for Emerald & Jade Flowers. But I am equally excited about 2017. For the time being, I have decided to focus mainly on Wedding Flowers. As I work from home, I take on a limited amount of weddings each year, so that I can give my full attention to each couple for their big day. From the consultation until even after the big day, I remain available to all my clients for any queries they may have concerning their flowers and their wedding. 2017 is looking busy already but I do still have some free dates, so don’t hesitate to get in touch to book a consultation here.

I also have some exciting ideas to go alongside the flowers, so keep your eyes peeled for more info!

Most of all, 2017 will be the year I continue to explore ways to live a beautiful life. Which is also what Emerald & Jade Flowers is all about. In line with this, I am working on an incredible giveaway for Mothers’ Day, along with some amazing Bristol suppliers. Details will be announced via Instagram so make sure you follow me so you don’t miss out.

I am also working to host a variety of workshops and I am currently looking into various venue options in Bristol to host these. If you would like to take part in a workshop, or if you have a space that would feel would be perfect for such an event, please do get in touch 🙂

So here’s to another year filled with flowers, beauty, and a happy, mindful life ♥

What will you be focusing on in 2017?

REAL WEDDING // Melissa + Jamie – Gorgeous Autumn Wedding

Real Wedding Emerald & Jade Flowers // www.emeraldandjadeflowers.com // photos by www.interlacephotography.co.uk

 

I met Melissa and Jamie through a mutual friend; they were getting married at Berwick Lodge in October and wanted to make full use of the gorgeous autumn colours available that month for their flowers and decor.

Initially, Melissa wasn’t 100% sure what she wanted, although she really liked calla lilies and lilies, especially in orange. We worked together on a Pinterest board, gathering ideas, and then I met with Melissa and Jamie to go through everything. It was during the consultation that everything came together.

For the ceremony room, I used wooden logs of various heights decorated with moss and candles, with some ferns planted in terracotta pots (which the guests then got to take home). I also decorated the pillars with some twigs and flowers to match the bouquet, just to add a little splash of colour to the beautiful ceremony room at Berwick Lodge.

The bouquets were beautiful and rich in colour, with lots of ferns as their dark green foliage really complemented the flowers. Melissa had a gorgeous bouquet, rich in colour.

The bridesmaids’ bouquets were mostly green, with some flowers for just a splash of colour against their dresses.

The buttonholes and corsages were in the same tones as Melissa’s bouquet, with Jamie’s a little different to his groomsmen.

And then there was Frank, the cutest little flower dog I ever saw 🙂

The end result was so beautiful, just the photos I saw on Facebook after the wedding looked beautiful, I love how the flowers seem to glow warmly!

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…)
