Winter Wedding at Stoke Rochford Hall

I love a winter wedding.  Probably because I chose December to tie the knot myself and as I arrived to deliver Emma and Harry’s wedding flowers on this crisp frosty morning (beautifully captured by Dottie Photography) I had that lovely warm feeling of nostalgia in my belly.  There was much excitement as Emma and her glamorous maids were busy getting ready upstairs, whilst Harry and his friends calmly organised and chatted in the stunning dining room and orangery below. It was a wonderful and emotional day with the couple also expecting a new arrival in 2017!

Emma chose ivory roses, anemones and silver eucalyptus in her bouquet.

Arriving in Style

Tasha and Tom were keen to use local suppliers and British blooms to celebrate their special day.  Following the ceremony in the quaint village of Redmile, they made their journey through the picturesque Vale of Belvoir by horse and carriage to The Manners Arms at Knipton, where they joined family and friends for a vintage summer party.

Tasha chose dahlias, roses, cosmos, herbs and fountain grass for her pretty seasonal bouquet.

Ready, Steady, Sow!

As the days start to get a little longer, we get off to a flying start with the sowing of our annuals and the planting up of the dahlia tubers. Many people wonder what a flower grower gets up to during the winter months, when the ground is hard and there’s little warmth from the sun. Well this winter we managed to publish our web page, start constructing the new workshop, although Dale snapping his cruciate ligament hasn’t helped (football boots well and truly hung up!!) and my favorite job of selecting and ordering this years seeds.
