During our first consultation, Natalie endeared herself to me immediately as, being the Mum and lovely lady she is, she talked in detail about everyone in the Bridal party including her daughters, her partner, her close relatives and the needs of all the other guests - before herself!
I showed Natalie my portfolio and some magazines I had and she felt, initially, that she wanted a very simple bouquet of all ivory roses to enhance her gorgeous asymmetric, full-length, ivory dress - embellished with lovely corsage-style roses.
