Red and white rose wedding

The flowers from Bryony's wedding on 9th October.
Bryony's flower of choice was the rose, her colour scheme was red, white and blue. Having looked through our portfolio she chose this hand-tie design of red freedom and white akito roses with asparagus fern. To add in a touch of blue we bound the stems with baby blue satin ribbon.
For her 4 maids a simple yet effective single red freedom rose was chosen to stand out against their dresses. To add some movement a few strands of bear grass were added and the stems were again bound with blue satin ribbon.

The two flower girls carried a single passion rose with looped strands of bear grass (for safety) again with blue ribboned stems.
The ladies wore an assortment of rose corsages.
This one is a passion rose with red spray roses, ruscus foliage and bear grass.
A white akito rose with white spray roses, ruscus foliage and bear grass.
An akito rose with white and peach spray roses, ruscus foliage and bear grass.
This wedding was to be collected and as such were placed on a presentation box.

Funeral Tributes

These are a selection of funeral tributes we have created over the last few weeks.
An oasis spray in blues and whites. Flowers included white lilies, spray carnations and gyp, blue iris, hydrangea and hyacinths.
One of our favourite tributes. A dolphin requested in blues and white from one of the local pubs. We have been informed they were highly delighted with it and so were we.
A MUM frame, all these 3 were for the same lady, apparently she didn't like pinks and girly colours.
Another MUM frame for a separate funeral. This time in pale pinks and whites.
An open book in purple ribbon edging and matching sprays with two ribbons 'NANNA' and 'GREAT NANNA'.
Red and white carnation football with a red rose spray. The motifs were provided by the customer.
A pint of beer.
An 18" Cushion based in white chrysants with a yellow and orange spray.
An oasis spray in pastel colours including roses, tulips, hyacinths, eremus, amaranthus and dahlias.
An open heart in a loose flower design. Yellow roses, blue hyacinths, pink hydrangeas, chrysants and white tulips amongst various foliage.
Our condolences go to all the friends and families involved.

Pride of Lincoln

Elise's wedding was held entirely at The Pride of Lincoln. This is the set up for the civil ceremony and then changed around for the reception.
We were asked to provide two pedestals for behind the registrars table which would be moved and used either side of the top table.
The colour scheme was red and white and I used red lily, carnations and white carnations, alstroemeria and stallion chrysants.

We also provide a couple of vases of flowers for the cake table.

Red rose and white freesia wedding

Elise's wedding from 25th September.
Thank you to all who recommended us to Elise, I know there was quite a few of you.

Red and white was the chosen colour scheme and Elise loved one of our most popular designs. The teardrop bouquet in red passion roses and white freesia with ruscus foliage.
The bridesmaid carried a posy of white roses and freesia as she was wearing a red dress.
The mums wore a double buttonhole of a red rose with a white carnation, we don't usually use this combination but they do work well.
The grooms buttonhole of a single carnation and freesia cluster.
Other members of the bridal party wore single white carnation buttonholes.
