An all round design in shades of rich reds, that was the brief! 
Here we have arranged a variety of roses including 'Ruby', Rubyella and Grand Prix with deep red Peonies, Sweet Williams and the more unusual flowers of Calceolaria. All intertwined with Jasmine. Finished with a satin and lace binding and a circle of diamante.

Helens Wedding Lysses Hotel

Helen was wearing a blue dress with an underlying grey tone. She loved simple wild flowers!
I selected Nigella, Scabious, bramble, Poyantha roses, Delphinium, Phlox, Thlaspi, Eucalyptus and Senecio to create this understated looking bouquet.

'Thank you for the amazing displays you created for my wedding at Lysses Hotel. The room looked like a summer meadow and was just perfect! My bouquet with 'Love in the mist' and white roses was inspired, I especially liked the Bramble. I hope others are aware of your creative talents.
My day was just perfect and you helped to make it so. Thank you so much.'

Dear Iain,

Words can not express how happy Ian and I were with the flowers. Which are still going strong today. 

We had an amazing day and everyone commented on the flowers. In fact I need some business cards to give to my guests. 

Many thanks once again. 

Ian and Clare. 

I am so glad you were pleased. They were an absolute pleasure to arrange for you.
Congratulations to you both!
