Wedding Fayres Sunday 30th September

A quick reminder The Flower Studio will be represented at two of the regions wedding fayres this Sunday (30th).
If you are in Lincoln and are looking for something alittle different for your reception then pop along to The Marquee on the water front at Burton Waters. Set over looking the marina, it would make a truly stunning setting for a summer wedding. There will be plenty of other suppliers there aswell as John who will be showcasing my designs for you.

Or if you are out and about in the north of the county call in at Elsham Hall where Elaine, from Bride Beautiful, is holding a wedding fayre in her gorgeous barn. A complete package with a civil license, this venue is fantastic at any time of year. Again many other wedding suppliers will be on hand to guide you in your search to find the right look for your day. I will be there with some gorgeous bouquets and table centres to inspire you and answer any flower related questions you have.

Entry to both wedding fayres is FREE.

Jane Means ribbons

It is always exciting when you discover a new supplier, made all the more appealing when it is someone local. I had heard of Jane Means, following on Twitter, but hadn't looked where she was based. A supplier and designer of ribbons and a Queen of wrapping, I was delighted to hear she was opening a new haberdashery store in Bracebridge Heath! Apparently this is where her mail order company has been based for awhile.
So today for an hour I took myself off to the opening of this fantastic little store. I was greeted with a jar of old fashioned lemonade or raspberry crush and a cupcake. Then in to the crowded store where ribbons of all sorts and colours greeted me. I have bought a few rolls and hope to be back for more. Lots of ideas for next years brides are whizzing around, so watch this space. In the mean time I wish Jane all the best in this new section of her business. If you wish to pop into the store it is open 10-1pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Alternatively go to her web page:

Orchid and germini wedding flowers

 Cheryl's wedding flowers were based around the colours of the bridesmaids dresses, burgundy and ivory. She wanted something unusual for her bouquet but liked gerberas for her maids. We eventually settled on a hand-tie of phalaenopsis orchids, red lips, and ivory germini with a nest of burgundy wire and beads. A single stem of orchids trailed down from the design.
 The older bridesmaids, wearing burgundy, carried a hand-tie of a single burgundy germini surrounded by ivory germini and a collar of aspidistra leaves. The stems are bound with burgundy ribbon.
 The smaller bridesmaids, wearing ivory, carried a smaller bouquet with the reverse colours.
 The groom wore a single ivory germini buttonhole with burgundy wire detailing.
 The grooms-men wore a single ivory germini buttonhole.
The two mums wore a single phalaenopsis orchid with germini petals and mixed foliage.

Cath Kidston inspired reception at Elsham Hall

 Louise got in touch with me via Elaine at Elsham Hall to decorate her reception. She already knew what she wanted as her theme and bridal flowers were all sorted by the time I got involved. The reception was inspired by Cath Kidston with bunting and flowers in creams, pale pinks and lilacs and chair bows, runners and detailing in turquoise.
The guest table displays were to be arranged in wellington boots with lots of large headed roses, stocks and ivy in the design.
 The wellingtons worked well with the colours and feel of the day.

 Four of the radiator covers were also treated to a display. They included sweet avalanche roses, lilac and cream stocks and stallion chrysants.
 Elaine had placed tea lights in every crevice there was. It must have looked spectacular at night.
 The top table was a long and low design of the same flowers. The trellis behind was treated to roses with ivy trails as well as more bunting.
 The pedestal displays were placed in Elsham's urns. Again using the same flower mix as before.

 The barn at Elsham Hall ready and waiting for the arrival of the bride and groom. It really did look stunning and the scent was just gorgeous.
