Ella & Andrew

By |2019-04-05T21:04:05+00:00April 5th, 2019|Flowers, Weddings|

Ella and Andrew were married in the heat of the summer in the large gardens behind The Griffin Inn in Fletching.  I love this pub. It is true old-England style without being twee or over-the-top. The food cooking always smells AMAZING, and the staff are kind and helpful. When you step out the back [...]

Laurie & Nathan

By |2019-04-05T21:04:39+00:00April 5th, 2019|Flowers, Weddings|

I first met Laurie and Nathan when we were introduced by Bryony, of Blue Door Barn events. We met in Bryony and Emma’s beautiful Beddingham home and began talk through all their ideas and plans for their wedding at Firle Place, due to take place in March the following year.  Laurie and Nathan were [...]

Jamie & Ed

By |2019-04-05T21:04:52+00:00April 5th, 2019|Flowers, Weddings|

Jamie and Ed were an absolute joy to work with. We met in the spring thanks to Bryony, of Blue Door Barns, and they gave me a really clear vision for their day from the start. We were to transform the Riding School at Firle Place into an elegant dining room for their black [...]

Florence & Johan

By |2019-04-05T21:05:03+00:00April 5th, 2019|Flowers, Weddings|

Florence and I met for the first time in the early summer when she and her Mum made a trip to Eastbourne to start talking through her ideas. Florence and her Mum both had a keen interest  in flowers and floristry so I was certainly put on the spot with my knowledge and advice! [...]

Jo & Dom

By |2019-04-05T21:05:17+00:00April 5th, 2019|Flowers, Weddings|

Jo and Dom’s wedding in 2014 was the first time I had worked at The George in Rye. Jo and Dom were both working and living in London with their small daughter, Frankie, so meeting up was tricky! But during one their visits down to St Mary’s church we met and walked round The [...]

Chiara & Mark

By |2019-04-05T21:05:28+00:00April 5th, 2019|Flowers, Weddings|

As a Doctor completing her Masters in the run up to her and Mark’s wedding day, Chiara had an extremely busy schedule! We didn’t actually meet until I delivered her bouquet to her on the morning of the wedding - we’d spent the last few months on the phone, emailing and exchanging images via [...]

Daniella & Sam

By |2019-04-05T21:05:38+00:00April 5th, 2019|Flowers, Weddings|

When your bride spends at least 50% of your wedding consultation talking about her love of cactus, I knew I’d found a flowery-friend. And then they mentioned their venue (The Bell in Ticehurst) and their photographer (the ever-wonderful Dale Weeks) and I couldn’t have been happier! Sam and Daniella wanted to create a day that [...]

Tanya & James

By |2019-04-05T21:05:49+00:00April 5th, 2019|Flowers, Weddings|

Working alongside Tanya and James for their wedding at the very end of 2018 was an absolute joy! They had chosen to get married on New Years Eve at the very festive, cosy, and slightly spangly The George in Rye. There were a couple of unusual aspects for me, firstly, Tanya and I didn’t [...]

Hannah & Doug

By |2019-04-05T21:06:00+00:00April 5th, 2019|Flowers, Weddings|

It was in the really scrappy, murky, cold, tatty end of January that Joanne (of The Wedding Dolls) got in touch with me about the flowers for a wedding later that year. As she talked about the couple and their ideas and plans, their wedding seemed a million miles away; tropical colours, palms, ferns [...]

Rebecca & Michael

By |2019-04-05T21:06:13+00:00April 5th, 2019|Flowers, Weddings|

It wasn’t until the middle of autumn that Rebecca and Michael got in touch to start discussing the wedding flowers for their winter wedding. As time was tight, we spoke a lot on the phone, Skyped and emailed too. It was clear very quickly that Rebecca deeply valued flowers and the overall design of [...]
