Chamber of delights (part one)

A little taster of the wedding flowers I put together for the wonderful Emma Walker of craftscotland and her now husband Mick Pritchard.  The mantra we all repeated was 'celebratory and joyful' and Emma's love of colour ran through the bouquets and the reception (more of that to follow).  Thank you Emma for letting me be part of your day and trusting my creative vision.

Fragrant roses from an English country garden

Polka dots and striped haberdashery loveliness

A little buttonhole magic (and a white rose for a Yorkshire born groom)

A little something vintage and blue for the bride

A love poem to start the day

Mary, Mary, How does your garden grow?

Mary Katrantzou Spring Summer 2012

I do like a flower installation and Mary Katrantzou really wowed me with her carnation catwalk at London fashion week recently.  Her collection was "inspired by nature, but viewed through a hyper-real lense".  This proves that the humble carnation has serious flower power when a creative eye has a hand in it.  Image courtesy of The Guardian
