Spring has sprung….. Almost!

As I write, its pouring rain and it’s COLD! So cold. It’s mid-March and we’ve just had a very

cold snap but things are stirring in the garden and I have my first wedding of the season this

weekend.


Excitement is high, it’s been a long winter after a very flowery year last year. I am so ready

for some flowering again.


Here are some of the locally grown Spring flowers that I used year to keep us going another

few weeks.


SCOTTISH ANEMONE, RANUNCULUS AND TULIP FOR AN ISLE OF SKYE STYLED SHOOT




The brief was natural and elegant in whites, blush and green. I created a loose and natural

bouquet which was to complement the rugged backdrop of Quairing, on Skye.


I used delicate leucojum, creamy narcissus and perfectly ruffled, blush ranunculus with just

budding fresh spring foliage – what a dreamy combo!

SPRING FLOWERS IN CLASSICALLY BEAUTIFUL WHITE AND GREEN WITH POPS OF BLUE





Sabrina and Alex chose a simple and elegant palette of white, green, and soft blues for their

wedding flowers at Carberry Tower, East Lothian.


I used locally grown spring flowers anemone and ranunculus with the addition of some soft

blue delphinium, phlox and veronica from the Dutch markets.


Sabrina chose a natural, garden gathered style for her bridal bouquet.




I decorated a moongate for their ceremony which was moved to the marquee afterwards to

be used as photo backdrop.


The pew ends were also reused in vases on the bar and the bud vases were transferred to

the top table to sit amongst a garland.

BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL BRIDAL FLORALS FOR A FLOWER LOVER





I used a gorgeous selection of juicy, Scottish grown flowers Claire was a dream to work with

as a flower lover. She wanted to know what all the flowers were and her reaction to the

bridal bouquet was the best!





I used anemone, double tulips, ranunculus and dicentra (bleeding heart) to create shape

and movement and to include a pop of fun!





My trusty gold bowls got an outing to Prestonfield House where they complemented the

décor perfectly!

TEXTURAL FOLIAGE WITH WHITES, SOFT BLUES AND LILAC





Yana and Max chose whites, soft blues, and lilac for their wedding flowers in May.

There is an abundance of beautiful spring flowers at this time of year, so much to choose

from – a florist’s dream!


I used a gorgeous selection of local flowers including orlaya, goat rue, ranunculus, bluebells,

canterbury bells, dicentra , cornflower and sweet rocket.


To add some more blue, I used scabious, nigella, and delphinium from the Dutch market.
