Liver birds, looking out to sea and looking out over the city. Looking out for a florist who hasn’t visited for some time and who’s slightly lost looking for the venue. I love this city. The architecture, the fact it has so many more Georgian and Art Deco buildings than Manchester for instance. Although they can keep the purple wheelie bins. Nobody beeped their horn, despite my terrible driving. It was a relaxed day all round.
I managed to source some stunning locally grown lilac and azalea. A little homegrown jasmine, and British grown sweet peas mixed with the stocks and rosemary gave off a delicious scent. If only you could bottle it. This is what I call a cusp wedding, one season moving into the other. In the floristry world we’re always a little ahead of the garden, commercially.
Design wise it’s ALL about a statement piece. So go BIG. Blow the budget on something amazing. This top table design being a point in question. The impact of one huge piece when you walk in a room is fantastic. Rather than dotting little things which dilutes the look. Now what I’d really like to do is design around those windows. How amazing would that be?
