Whether it’s flowers from the garden, a wrap or two you picked up from the supermarket when doing your food shop, or whether you’ve been bought a gorgeous hand-tied bouquet, you will want to make sure you know how to make your flowers last longer. So because we’re nice like that, we’re sharing a few tips with you below. (more…)
When a bride emails me about wedding flowers, and tells me from the start that she prefers rich, jewel tones such as emerald green and navy blue, paired with bright flowers, I know we’re going to get on just fine! I met Jen and Chris at a wedding fair a little while back, and they got back in touch for their wedding flowers. They got married at the Bristol Registry Office, and then celebrated at St George’s Hall just off Park Street. (more…)
Today I’m excited to share Lauren + Chris’ pastel, rustic wedding at Kingscote Barn, thanks to Charlotte’s photos from Bristol Contemporary Photography. Lauren had her heart set on a rustic, barn wedding from the start, and I think you’ll agree from the photos that they achieved this beautifully!
Lauren + Chris met at University, and got engaged on their 6 year anniversary at a spa hotel. Chris had made Lauren a photo book and at the end it said “will you marry me?” ♥
For the flowers, Lauren decorated a lot of jars with jute string, burlap and lace. The venue was decorated with a lot of these jam jars, with a variety of pastel colours.
Last week we celebrated the return of Spring (yay!) and what better way to celebrate than a workshop teaching a lovely group how to make their very own Spring hand-tied Bouquet. The workshop took place at the Floating Harbour Studios, which is a boat, or more specifically, a converted 1905 steel dutch barge moored in an enviable secluded spot on the water in the heart of the city. A perfect location for a twilight workshop!
Valentine’s Day is just over two weeks away, so make sure to get your bouquet orders in this week! Emerald & Jade Flowers is now taking orders.
As we don’t tend to do traditional in anything we do… we won’t be making traditional Valentine’s Day red roses bouquets, but instead bouquets in our very own preferred style. Think beautiful, bright colours, with flowers freshly chosen from the market for looking their best. If you aren’t familiar with our work, have a look on our Instagram account which is full of beautiful, colourful flowers!
