This week, I challenged myself to share 3 photos that represented my brand. That was a difficult task to set myself and I certainly haven't been able to keep it to just 3! My clients tell me that they see my creations and service as 'Luxury' 'Stunning' 'Quality Service' 'Timeless' 'Classic' 'Chic' ' Elegant' and 'Stress Free'. I would agree with them. With me, the flowers do the talking. It's not about lots of venue dressing props and hire items, it's simply stunning flow
If you're reading this, you're probably interested in my work and are looking at booking a Florist for your wedding that will take the stress away and help you to come up with ideas for floral designs. Whatever your career is, Doctor, Teacher, Lawyer; you work hard and want someone to do the creative thinking for you as it's not your strong point. Am I right? Well, as a creative person and a self employed one, it's so important for me to do things that keep my style & skills
When I met Ruth for our initial consultation at Jesmond Dene House, I immediately knew we were a good fit for each other! We got on well from the start and she loved my work. We'd also both been through grief so could relate to each other. She was confident in me and my work so just trusted me to 'do my thing'. Ruth filled in my survey recently and I just love what she wrote - "I found you by going through photographers' albums on Facebook. They had plenty of examples from r
So seeing as it's been a little while since I blogged (months ago!), I thought i'd kickstart the new year with this vision of prettiness at Doxford Barns in Northumberland. We're so lucky in Northumberland, as we have a huge amount of wedding venues to choose from due to our region's industrial & Agricultural history and stately homes. I think we often take that for granted! It's always lovely to see old buildings being revamped and reused like they are at Doxford Barns! Emi
I'd wanted to work at the Fig House for ages, so was over the moon when Laura & Chris booked me for their big day there. I have to say, it didn't disappoint, it's one of my FAVOURITE venues now. Their striking dark red, purple and black colour scheme, looked absolutely stunning against the fig house backdrop! I was lucky enough to have HEY CHRIS RANDLE photo & Video, accompany me, as he is making me a fabulous corporate promo video. So he kindly gave me a selection of his sti
I absolutely LOVE working with tropical leaves so I was over the moon when Lucy got in touch and asked for them for her big day at Charlton Hall.

I love a bit of colour now and then, so I was so pleased when Katie & Fergul said they wanted as much colour as possible.

Emily & James were just the loveliest couple to work with and Crook Hall in the heart of Durham, was perfect for them. Beautiful sunshine, beautiful gardens and of course..ahem... beautiful flowers.

So nobody can predict the British weather, especially when you book your wedding day so far ahead. Even the weather man gets it wrong sometimes. But the new Mr & Mrs Hegarty (and gorgeous son Jenson), certainly never expected the amount of rain that appeared in Otterburn on 10th August! We're talking sand bags at the door, an overflowing river, firemen preparing to evacuate them, a two hour power cut and tuna sandwiches & wine for their wedding breakfast. But I love the fact
Alexa & Andrew were a dream to work with! I've said it before and I'll say it again, I do my best work when a couple just trust me and leave me to it!
The whole look of their wedding was stylish and pretty; something that Charlton Hall excels at.

I just loved working on this super stylish and uber-cool wedding at Northumberland's newest and funkiest venue, Charlton Hall. I'm proud to say that I'm a recommended Florist there!
Rachael and Michael were a lovely couple to work with and I'm so glad they chose me to make their flowers. Rachael is a Social Media Influencer so everything had to look tip top! They opted for stylish and classic white and green flowers, which match their style and the venue perfectly!
At the end of last month, I was privileged to fly over to Holland for 3 days and attend a workshop with French designer Max Hurtaud, sponsored by Parfum Flower Company and Florismart. Parfum are the company behind David Austin Roses and I'm immensely proud to be their Ambassador! So when you come to get your wedding flowers from me, I am able to show you so much about these stunning scented Roses! I met some wonderful people and visited some amazing places while I was there,
We are so lucky in Northumberland. We have so many beautiful wedding venues in our small corner of the globe. So much so that many people travel long distances to get married here. I have had Brides travel from Holland, Dubai, France, India, Canada, as well as our very own big cities such as London, Manchester and Essex. Anum & Jack travelled from London to Woodhill Hall in Otterburn for their New Year's Eve nuptials and I was honoured that they chose me as their Florist! Im
When I get an idea in my head, it's hard to let it go. So when I saw these beautiful luxurious looking balloon displays that are around nowadays, I knew I just had to pull a team of fellow creatives together to bring my vision to life! I could not be more pleased with the people I picked. We had - Imaginarium Balloons creating the beautiful balloon display Emily Hannah Photography behind the lens Where The Ribbon Ends on cakes and desserts Charlton Hall was the venue Northern
January 26th marked the start of my 2019 weddings, with Emma & Steve's beautiful city wedding at The Biscuit Factory. The ceremony arch, the pretty bouquets, the centrepieces, it really was a pretty one to start the year with. Emma and Steve booked me quite some time ago and they've been an absolute pleasure to work with. I tend to book such lovely couples and these guys were no exception.

I'm immensely proud to have been invited to be a recommended supplier at this great venue . I always love working at venues like Woodhill because it lends itself to lots of different styles, and this allows me the freedom to really tailor the flowers to the bride's needs. Woodhill is fast becoming one of the region's wedding hotspots and we're being asked to work there more and more often. With the ceremony taking place in their beautiful orangery, the happy couple could enjo

I get to work with some absolutely lovely couples, in fact, that's a big plus for me, that these nice people (with good taste in flowers!) want to work with me. It makes my job really enjoyable and satisfying when a Couple tell me at the end that i've made their wedding planning so enjoyable and that they loved their flowers. Danielle & Mark were no exception. Their look was a blend of natural yet luxurious and they chose white flowers with green foliage. Their foliage and S
