Wedding Blog | Susan & David | 29th November 2014

I’ve already blogged on this beautiful winter wedding but having recently received some of the professional images from Marc at Photography by Marc Lawson I just had to share again!

It was a crisp winter day and a wedding with a soft and delicate floral brief with a nod to the bride’s Scottish heritage and just a sprinkling of Hepburn glamour and vintage styling.

Beautiful and meaningful Baby’s Breath kept the flowers by Ditsy Floral Design simple and sophisticated.  Rather than fresh flowers the bride had a bespoke brooch bouquet made by Innocent Chaos.

Wedding Blog | Gillian & Ken | 4th October 2014

I love it when an email from a past bride pings into my inbox.  Especially when they are sharing some of their professional photography.

The bride in question is Gillian who wanted me to create her ‘romantic roses’ vision for her wedding flowers. We browsed over magazines and pinterest before settled on toning pink roses and a wild and rustic rose and foliage garland.

The flowers combined the beautiful big headed Secret Garden roses and smaller stronger coloured Keano rose with pink snowberries and soft eucalyptus foliage.  The foliage was locally grown by Foliage Works.

The wedding was on Saturday 4th October with a church venue in Lisburn and the reception in the sumptuous Slieve Donard Resort & Spa, Newcastle.  Photo credit to Matt Symons Photography.

Rockin 50s Style Wedding Flowers

The most recent wedding by Ditsy Floral Design in early June was a little bit different. A quirky bride who had very clear styling ideas to complement her 50s style wedding dress and bright red accessories. I had fun working on this brief and created this mood board on Pinterest to inspire my creative thoughts. http://www.pinterest.com/elainegroves1/rockin-50s-style-wedding/

The final bridal design is a handtied posy with locally grown red charm peonies from Moorfield Flowers, white Avalanche roses, white freesia, tanacetum and home grown ammi majus from the Ditsy Floral cut flower patch.

Beautiful Buttonholes – Practice makes perfect!

The start of the year is always a busy time for wedding planning.  I’ve had a number of enquiries from brides-to-be in recent weeks (so pleased, big grin).  I thought I would prepare some buttonhole designs for inspiration – and to show off lol!  I’m also studying my Level 3 in floristry and I have a portfolio to prepare for my final assessment in May – a few extra buttonhole and corsage designs will be appreciated.
