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.

White rose wedding flowers

Julie's wedding flowers from 25th September.

A small family wedding with a few flowers is how Julie described her day. Nothing too large, just a simple posy to carry.
The brides bouquet was 6 white roses with ivy trails tied with a white organza bow.
The two bridesmaids each carried 3 white roses with ivy.
The flower girl carried a gold wand with a small white rose and ivy leaves with ribbon trails.
The two ladies each wore a corsage of white freesia and ivy leaves.
The groom and 5 of his men wore a single white rose buttonhole.
The rest of the guests were presented with a white carnation buttonhole.
It was lovely to see Julie on the Monday morning to thank us for the flowers and to tell us how the day went.

Turquoise and white wedding flowers

Sam's wedding flowers from 25th September.

As turquoise was the colour chosen for the bridesmaids dresses, it was decided to keep the flowers white. Sam chose calla lilies for her bouquet with roses to tie in with the bridesmaids. Turquoise feathers were added to add a splash of colour and 'lift' the bouquet against her dress. White satin ribbon was bound around the stems with turquoise pins.
Her two maids carried a white rose hand-tie again with turquoise feathers.
The grooms buttonhole was a calla lily with a white rose , feather and ivy foliage.
The ladies wore a corsage of a calla lily, white roses and stallion chrysants with ivy foliage.
The rest of the men wore a single white rose buttonhole.

Charlotte House

Natalie's wedding ceremony and reception were both held at Charlotte House.
The civil ceremony was held in The Drawing Room where we were asked to provide a pedestal in creams and whites for behind the registrars table. This would be later moved to The Orangery for the meal.
The flowers were lilies, eustoma, roses, alstroemeria, germinis and stallion chrysants, with various foliage.
As this was an intimate gathering with a single table, a large table centre was required. We designed this in similar flowers to the pedestal.
Our bay trees at the entrance to the Drawing Room.
The Drawing Room ready for the ceremony.
The lovely new Orangery, set for the wedding breakfast.

Champagne roses and pearl wedding

Natalie's wedding flowers from 24th September.
Themed on champagne roses and pearls to match in with her dress, Natalie carried a hand-tie of talea roses with bear grass loops and salal edging. The stems were bound with cream satin ribbon.
The bridesmaids carried an overarm bouquet of 5 and 3 roses respectively. Pearls threaded onto the bear grass tie in with the brides bouquet.

The grooms buttonhole is a single talea rose with ruscus foliage and bear grass loops with pearls.
The ladies wore a similar design to the groom.
The rest of the men wore a single rose and foliage.
