Great success at the Regional Finals!

A fantastic year is recognised with award achievement.

Jessie Copper :: Monday 27th November 2017 :: More News

Since my mind-blowing National Final experience in the 2014-15 UK Wedding Awards, and after further 3 years always achieving a place in the regional finals (I pride myself on consistency!) I am so proud this year to have yet again made it through to the regional finals of the 2017-18 awards, and at last week's Regional Final ceremony, I was announced as the Regional Highly Commended Winner, coming in a close second behind the Regional Winner Clair Lythgoe (high congrats to her and her team, of course, as they head on to the National Finals!)

A dreamy photo-shoot at Knighton House.

The perfect summery supplier collaboration, resulting in some glorious pictures.

Jessie Copper :: Wednesday 22nd November 2017 :: More Inspiration

Being involved in a collaborative photo-shoot is always exciting. Mainly because - similarly to an haute-couture fashion show - I am given (within reason!) free reign to really push the boat out and create something more 'out there', innovative, oversized or spectacular than I might perhaps be asked to make everyday; real-life brides still tend to play things just a little bit safe, however flamboyant they are, as there is such a lot riding on their big day. But there is no holding back at a photoshoot. More than that, it is just so refreshing and unrestrictive to be following each design entirely where your hands and eyes take it, rather than working prescriptively from an order on a piece of paper. All the suppliers come together to create a look that pushes the given brief to it's outer limits.... and I think this shoot can be described perfectly as 'dreamy'.

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 :: More Advice

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 :: More Inspiration

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....
