Do you know anyone that has had to postpone their spring/summer wedding and is now totally gutted the flowers they wanted might not be available? If so totally get them to have a look at alternative bouquet makers (not just me we're all in this one together) we might be able to recreate the look they were after so they can have it whenever the day ends up being... oh and they will get to keep it forever! Please share so people know!
I wouldn't normally share this sort of thing here as i tend to keep my little business page for sharing the things I've created but with Coronavirus affecting all of us in so may ways this really is too important not to share.
For a while now I've been working with the Royal Voluntary Service. They are amazing and leading the way in this crisis supporting our most vulnerable. They need your help to be able to do this though so if you can spare anything at all please do.
I'm also incredibly aware just how hard this has hit so many financially so if you can't spare anything right now don't worry just be kind to each other and we'll make it through
Stay safe everyone
To continue to provide a lifeline to tens of thousands of older or vulnerable people in this time of crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic
One of my amazing couples tells their story about getting married just before Lockdown.
Lauren Hallam-King, 28, and her groom Tom Hallam, 33, from Loughborough, Leicester, had booked the date to tie the knot in front of 15 witnesses today, but married alone in a registry.
With everything going on around us we are having a ‘home holiday’ as Fletcher found the terms self isolation and social distancing quite scary. He’s now bouncing round the house happy as ever. For me the sewing and creating continue as normal. How are you all doing? xx
My couples are simply the best! Check out these amazing photos and also the bride has some pretty lovely things to say :)
"I have only ever wanted a felt flower bouquet for my wedding. I scoured Etsy and the rest of the internet for a month and kept coming back to CharlieLaurieDesigns. She was absolutely phenomenal throughout the custom design process for my bouquet and boutonnière. My bouquet is perfect and will last a lifetime! Thank you so much for making the only thing I really wanted at my ceremony (besides the husband, of course!)"
I'm so amazingly proud of everything to do with this shoot... and it's also so lovely that something a little bit magical happened! Thank you to the team who couldn't have possibly been more amazing, to Rock 'n Roll Bride for loving it as much as we did and of course Natalie and Maxx!
On October 6th at The Lost Village of Dode in Kent, Natalie and Maxx acted as models for a Snow White and dark fairytale themed wedding shoot. What started as just a pretend handfasting ceremony ended up being really moving and emotional for the couple, so they decided to actually make the commitmen...
The bottom is just as important as the top! I do so like to make sure that things are pretty from all angles :) Also i may have just been sent some absolutely EPIC photos of this bouquet in action! Very excited to share.
So.... my New Years resolution was to be more consistent with social media! How do we think i am doing so far? *hangs head in shame* still maybe Batman will keep me in line... or maybe not. Anyone else failing miserably at any of their resolutions?
Lovely start to the new year being included in this blog post over at Magpie Wedding Happy Science Fiction Day! (Yes that is actually a thing!)
To celebrate Science Fiction Day and the return of Dr Who last night - we have put together some ideas for your themed wedding.
Tell us, who loves a bit of sci fi?
Just before we bound happily into another year and say goodbye to 2019 I have the absolute pleasure of sharing with you one of the pictures sent to me by my Bride Faye. Doesn't she look stunning! It seems a very fitting way to bid farewell to a very eventful year and say thank you to ALL the people i have worked with, You really do make my job the best that you could have. Have a great one folks and i'll see you in 2020
