Clair chose a hand tie design which must include ivory roses and gypsophila and bling but left the rest to me. As the colour scheme was aqua and ivory we decided to add some green blooms to add depth to the bouquet. Included were Eskimo and green roses, ivory spray roses, freesia, gyp and pitto foliage with lace entwined through the flowers. Diamante brooches were added along with small spray diamante. The stems were bound with ivory satin ribbon with an over wrap of lace and pinned with diamante and a sparkle brooch.

|Amnesia, avalanche and apricot carnations|
Any way all our communication was done via e-mail, with Lorraine sending me photos of the type of bouquet with the look she was wanting to achieve. We settled on Avalanche and Amnesia roses with apricot carnations, gyp and rosemary and lavender foliage put together as a hand-tie with lace bounding the stems together.
The bridesmaids each carried a bouquet of Amnesia and Avalanche roses with gyp and eucalyptus. All stems were bound with lace.
Also provided were buttonholes for the groom and the ushers.
Thank you Lorraine for choosing and trusting Sandra's Flower Studio to design your wedding flowers.

The colours were chosen by the bride to tone in with her colour scheme. Cream and blue were her main colours with an added splash of red.
For the two pedestals I included gorgeous blue hydrangeas, statuesque delphiniums and monkshood with cream lilies and chrysanthemums and red carnations.
The two vases for the mantelpiece had a delphinium, a stem of lily, a red carnation and a blue hydrangea with blue sisal.

|Sweetness rose hand-tied bouquet|
I first met Shab at The Lincoln wedding fayre when I was exhibiting at The Judges Lodgings. We discussed briefly her requirements, and she was quick to point out it was only going to be a small do and would this be a problem. As I told Shab at the time, the way I see this is;
A wedding is a wedding whether it be an intimate do or a lavish and grand affair, flowers, to me, are part and parcel of any wedding and as such I am happy to create as much or as little as each bride requires.
As the bride was going to be wearing a red and gold dress and didn't want to carry anything too large, we decided on a hand-tie of roses. The next decision, and this took a while to get the right shade, was the colour of the rose. The one chosen initially was eventually decided would be too pink and so Sweetness was picked. A lovely two tone rose with outer petals of red and ivory to cream centres. This was teamed with gyp and tree fern with a collar of salal. The stems were wrapped in ivory satin ribbon and pinned with diamantes to match the ones in the centre of the roses.
