As the year draws to an end, we have been looking back at an amazing 2018.
We would like to thank everyone of our customers, for allowing us to bring flowers in to your lives, whether through your wedding day, a workshop, gift bouquet or funeral piece.
Here are a selection of our personal photos taken through out this year to allow you to take a peak behind the scenes..
Early on in the season we try to get all the jobs we can done in advance, so it saves us some time when we are in the thick of weddings.
Clare is busy pricking out the individual seedlings into larger module trays to grow on, before we plant them out in April.
2018 was a bumper year for Ranunculus. We love them, they are so colourful and pretty with hundreds of petals. Here is Clare picking a few.
2018 started off so wet. Here is Clare just after she has been battling with the weed control fabric during a particularly wet and windy spring day.
Alison busy creating a large arrangement at the fantastic Meols Hall in Churchtown.
Clare is the NW area coordinator for Flowers From The farm, an organisation set up to promote British flowers. We meet up once a month to chat, inspire one another and drink tea.
Alison titivating the candelabra, before moving them on to the tables at a beautiful hotel in the Lake District.
Hearts are definitely on trend. We have seen lots of brides order them for this year and next.
2018 saw us bask in the best summer weather ever! It was just perfect for an outdoor wedding ceremony like this one at Hurst Green Village Hall.
These are our homegrown flowers, the very ones that travelled down to London, to be used along with many others from growers around the country, on the gold medal winning, Flowers From The Farm exhibit at the RHS Chelsea flower show!
At the end of July we where really excited to have been asked to do a floral demonstration at the RHS Tatton flower show.
Here we are in action at Tatton.
A moon arch we created for the most stunning wedding on the side of Lake Windermere.
Hair crowns are another type of circle definitely very fashionable at the moment. Along with moon arches and floral chandeliers.
We planted lots of new bulb varieties in Autumn. We cant wait to see them in full bloom for next spring’s weddings.
This is at The Wellbeing Farm, one of our very favourite venues. Its full of fun and quirkiness, we love setting up our flowers here.
A rather early wreath, we made this in September, especially for a photo shoot for Lancashire Life magazine.
Alison collecting lots of homegrown Eucalyptus.
Alison rather chuffed with her finished willow deer.
Here are a small selection of the most amazing professional photographs sent to us by our 2018 brides. Thank you all for sharing them with us. It is so lovely to see the end result to our work, especially when photographed by such amazing, creative photographers.
