Winter White Wonderland

20th March 2013

Last weekend I took the studio pup for a lovely long walk around Staunton Harold. Armed with my camera I headed for Dimminsdale Wood as I was hoping to see the snowdrops out in all their beauty & we weren’t disappointed,  there was a wonderful white carpet of snowdrops all with their heads popping up under the wood land branches with the sunlight shimmering through. It was like a little magical glade & reminded me of an old favourite childhood book, the Flower Fairys! This got me thinking,  how beautiful would a snowdrop wedding be? After a quick search I found the stunning Hodsock Priory…

Simple But Stunning Floral Ideas…

5th May 2011

We loved this posting from our friends over at Before Your Big Day. If you have reached the end of your budget but still want a stunning floral display try choosing one type of flower, buy from a wholesalers or flower market and arrange them yourself. Arrange big beautiful bunches or add some beautiful velvet ribbon or lace trim to tie up a small bunch into a bouquet. Effortlessly simple and totally chic! We are loving the Baby’s Breath (Gypsophilia) we think it will look lovely Georgia!! …so delicate and pretty!
