Where to start?

My guide to planning your wedding flowers, and avoiding brain overload when it comes to options!

Jessie Copper :: Tuesday 30th May 2017

It can seem over-whelming, I know. You don't know your alstro from you allium. You have seen pictures of bouquets you like, but you have no idea what flowers are in them, or how to communicate your vision to your florist. But don't panic. I am here to offer you a few words of advice.

Time to flash back to wedding season 2016...

It's about time too!

Jessie Copper :: Monday 10th April 2017

Blimey, where did that winter go!? I had huge plans to bring you plenty of new blog posts through the quiet times that winter brings for a wedding florist.... but I literally haven't stopped! The joys of my first full winter without my flower shop has meant that I have had time for - not only lots of new adventures - but also to get stuck in to learning new skills, enjoy hobbies and feel that everything isn't being done at such a crazy rush! And now the spring has arrived, along with glorious sunshine, and - before I start to bring you floral gems from 2017 - I feel it would be a good idea to give you some indepth visuals of some of last year's most memorable and glorious weddings.... and to begin, let's focus on Brooklyn and Tom's splendid nuptials....

Summer Wedding Season 2016 is finally over, and look what just happened!

Jessie Copper :: Tuesday 1st November 2016

It's been the most amazing summer.... what a fantastic troupe of brides, grooms, venues and suppliers I have had the priviledge of working with!

Priorities, Priorities ....

Just a few vital words on budgets, the cost of flowers, and choosing a supplier.....

Jessie Copper :: Thursday 19th May 2016

My work dream? What would my dream be....... hmmmmm ...... It would be that every bride-to-be that comes to me has a limitless budget. Not because I am in any way greedy or hard-headed, but because it would be lovely for everyone to have whatever they want on their wedding day.

Natasha and Mark - far far away.....

Yes, it really is possible for a Bride to organise and pull-off the most fantastic day from the other side of the world.... it really is!

Jessie Copper :: Tuesday 22nd March 2016

Natasha and Mark are a great example of a wedding well organised.... well you have to be, when you live on the other side of the world! Natasha managed to organise everything remotely from New Zealand, and this is a circumstance that I see more and more now that the Earth is such a small place, and travel is so easy. Combine this with the fact that most girls love to go back home to their roots for their wedding day, and you have what could potentially be a logistical nightmare. But not if you have the right suppliers, an organised head on your shoulders, and of course, the good ol' tinternet.
