Time flies when you're having fun...

...and fun is exactly what we have in our job!  Most of the week has been spent preparing for Aimee & Andy's and  Louisa & Alex's weddings todays and even when it gets to the stage where I am still in the shop at 1am making buttonholes I still wouldn't change it for the world!

Speaking of the early hours, I must say thank you to the local police who after driving past the shop at midnight and spotting the lights on, popped in to check everything was ok!

The two wedding today were both very different styles....

Aimee & Andy - bold cerise germini & gerbera with diamante & crystal and statement foliage

And Louisa & Alex had a contemporary Art Nouveau style with wirework structures & exotic orchids

We also had a bit of a spring clean in the shop today... disturbing a rather large black spider whilst moving the tables... but we now have a dedicated consultation area where clients can sit and browse through our portfolio with a cuppa!

Fresh in this week...

Just a few photos of some of the beautiful flowers that arrived in the shop this week....

Phalaenopsis 'Red Lips'

Rose 'Tribal Beauty'

Gladioli 'Prins Claus'

Our shop, full of lovely flowers!  At least one person every day comes in and thinks they aren't real!

We do love a good wedding!

Wedding season is in full swing now and for a change I actually got to go our friends Brian & Ericas' wedding on Saturday as well as being asked to do their flowers!

The day started off with monsoon like weather as we dropped the table centres off at the Mount Murray Hotel but by the time we had got home and changed , the rain had almost stopped and the sun was peeking out.

St Pauls Church was the venue for the ceremony and as it was the last weekend of the Manx Heritage Flower Festival it was packed to the roof with amazing floral designs.

Erica looked stunning in her white satin gown with full skirt and jewel encrusted bodice and her bridesmaids wore elegant cerise dresses with a navy blue sash.

Their bouquets were posies of 'Memory Lane', 'Milano' & 'Cool Water' roses, Eryngium, Lisianthus, mint, rosemary, Campanula and other pretty cottage garden flowers & foliage, set off with diamante pins and crystals.  This theme ran through all the flowers with the men wearing Eryngiums in their buttonholes also.

The tablecentres were in tall flute glasses with lots of purple & blue flowers & trails of Ivy... The best man even thanked me in the speeches which I wasn't expecting (I get embarrassed easily!) but it was lovely to know I had fulfilled my role on the day!

The day carried on with great food, fantastic company and drinking & dancing in to the wee small hours with music by the fantastic Sloth Loves Chunk  (minus a couple of members, and were accompanied on a couple of tracks by the beautiful and very talented Lesley) who rocked the night!

Anyway, thanks to the new Mr & Mrs Howland who by now should be enjoying their honeymoon in Las Vegas... make sure you send us some more photos of the flowers when you get back!
