After all that effort we didn’t win the competition after all! Not to worry, it was only a bit of fun and as a rule, I don’t really bother with competitions but as the saying goes, nothing ventured nothing gained and all that!
I have not had much opportunity to blog of late as we’ve been super busy with lots of weddings and events every week, until this one just gone. So I thought I'd spend a moment looking over a few images I've been sent lately. It's always so nice to take a moment to reflect on recent work we have completed, to see the final details.
Next week we are back on track with three beautiful events to flower up and so it continues all the way through to the last Bank Holiday in August when I shall be finally taking a proper break and a holiday. The summer just seems to be flying by, before we know it, it will be autumn and I shall be thinking about the ‘C’ word and wreaths (no, I am not even going there)!
I have had some fabulous photos sent through by both photographers and brides of late as well as a few I have taken myself (you will of course spot the latter - the grainy blurry ones).
My working year is punctuated by the seasons, one often overlapping another and the pictures I think you will agree show this so beautifully.
There has been just one issue I've found increasingly difficult to overcome this year and that is my British wholesale supplier sadly went out of business and ceased to reopen after the seasonal winter closure. Previously they were able to gather from multiple sources across Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey delivering to me the most glorious flowers and foliage, as a result of this closure I find myself driving around collecting smaller quantities from numerous growers which is proving to be uneconomical and environmentally unsound, each trip can be two hours there and back. I am faced with taking the easier and more economical option of buying a guaranteed quantity of quality Dutch flowers instead. Life throws these curve balls at us and we have to work our way around or through them. I could write about this subject ad infinitum because I whilst love using local flowers, I do not choose them at any cost.
With this unsolved issue with no resolution in sight, let us focus instead on some of the loveliness TWHFCo has created thus far this spring and summer.
Here are a few images to show and tell about, I hope you agree we have had some cracking weddings to flower up, I extend my thanks to the A team that is Megan and Saranna working alongside me this spring/summer. Here's a little taste of our summer so far...
