try choosing one type of flower, buy from a wholesalers or flower market and arrange them yourself. Arrange big beautiful bunches or add some beautiful velvet ribbon or lace trim to tie up a small bunch into a bouquet. Effortlessly simple and totally chic! We are loving the Baby's Breath (Gypsophilia) we think it will look lovely Georgia!! ...so delicate and pretty!
Here's a quick snap of one of our work benches right now.. covered in invitations waiting to dry. These are laser cut quartz hearts with a beautiful cosmetic coloured paper inlay, each finished off with a small stunning diamante. Quite simple, but really beautiful! One of my favourite parts of what we do is getting to see wedding stationery finished & perfect before it gets sent off to excited Brides & Grooms...all beautifully wrapped and packaged in one of our keepsake boxes!

Having made the decision to have our wedding reception in the garden & having (after a bit of a hunt!) found a perfect traditional, canvas tent style marquee means that the fun can now begin! I can finally start to create, hunt for & make decorations & other little bits of gorgeousness that my head has been full of for months now.

We loved their pictures of the Table Plan cards which they tied to willow branches, they then used the same branches as a message tree later in the evening. Guests left messages throughout the evening until the tree was covered at the end of the night, and all the messages are now mounted in one of our beautiful photo albums with images from their big day!
