Springing into 2017

pure bright white bridal bouquet

Here’s a pure, bright white rose bridal display from my fabulous busy day yesterday at The Art of Weddings Bridal Show at Wadebridge Pavilions.

There was such a lively atmosphere with something to suit the full range of budgets and styles and so many lovely couples browsing the show offers. I do enjoy these events, but I have to say, I was pretty much talked out by the time I got home. It was worth it though, and all part of the fun, as I scooped another batch of interesting bridal flower consultations for my 2017/2018 diary.

In fact, I should probably let you know that there are only a few limited dates left for this year and next year is filling up fast, so if you would like Floral Creations to help create bouquets and displays for your dream wedding (2017/2018), do come along and see me at the two events coming up this weekend to ensure you reserve your key dates:

Saturday 25th February: 11am – 3pm: The Knightor Winery Wedding Fayre (with a complimentary glass of Knightor’s own bubbly)

Sunday 26th February: 11am – 3pm: The The Alverton Hotel in Truro

P.S. These will be my last bridal fayres for a while as we’re expecting, after these two shows, to be all booked out. 

On the subject of weddings – which, after all, is the core of my work! – I couldn’t help but be touched by that lovely story of the 150 year old vintage lace wedding dress which went missing from a dry cleaner’s in Scotland.

The dress had belonged to her great-great grandmother, and the bride was so distraught she shared a plea for help in tracking it down on Facebook. Like many, I saw her post and shared it, and before long there were over 20,000 shares across social media. Eventually, a young man (the landlord’s nephew) was spurred into action by the social media buzz. He went in person to the premises of the closed dry cleaning business where the heirloom dress had last been seen and had a thorough search through all the abandoned items. Miraculously, the dress was located, folded away with a pile of old lace in a corner of the work room! Without all that pressure and attention it might never have been found.

Aw. I do love a happy ending!
