Rebecca and Tim - A Cascading Bouquet for an Edwardian Gown

Hello all!

Today we are bringing you a wedding from August last year which featured on the wonderful Love My Dress blog.  We're always so delighted when our designs are part of a post on uber stylish, gorgeous blog and you can see the post here.  Rebecca and Tim got married in glorious sunshine at their local church which they attend in Leeds, St Michaels and All Angels.  Their reception was held at White Cloth Gallery in Leeds city centre, a very stylish and chic venue.  I think the following two pictures show off the venue beautifully and also include a father and bride picture which I am always a bit of a sucker for!

Rebecca wore an incredible Edwardian inspired dress, hand made by the amazingly talented Kate Beaumont, whose studio is here in sunny Sheffield.  To keep in with the style of the dress, T and Mel designed a beautiful cascading bouquet which included seasonal blooms of gypsophila, stocks, snapdragons, pink and white waxflower, ammi, cornflower, pale blue delphinium, shell pink spray roses, green bell and of course fern.

T's Tips! Our latest Fabulous, Flowery Feature

Hello all

Well the sun's currently shining here in the Frozen North, although it's been pretty freezing of late but the cold never bothered us anyway!

Anyway, to cast a little light into your world, I thought I'd let you know about a little idea I've been hatching for some time.  I've been aware for some time now that whilst many of you are busy planning weddings, you're also leading busy lives too.  So much so that I occasionally hear from couples who say things like .. 'I wish I'd known that before I made the decision to book this, or order so-and-so, or spend money on this-that-and-the-other'.

With this in mind, I thought I'd launch a new idea (which I'm pretty certain no-one else does at the moment - although if it works, it won't be the case for long!) to pop a daily hint or tip onto our social media for all our lovely followers. We will also be adding videos to our YouTube channel, starting with this one, just follow this link.  To start with it, this week, will be flower related but I do think there's plenty of scope to turn this into a bigger idea and over the next few weeks we will be featuring hints and tips from good friends in the wedding industry who work in all manner of different areas to include planning, blogging, photography, venues, wedding dresses, accessories, hair, make up, car hire, cakes, styling, music etc.

You name it, we know some fabulous, creative and amazing people who have the same working ethos and standards as we do and lots and lots of different wedding industry fields.

So, if you're a bride or couple, let me know what you think of this idea; if you're an industry professional we've worked with and you've a hint or tip you'd like to share, then let me know too.  All feedback most welcome!

Thanks so much
