  1. Buttonholes for Nic and Dave's party- image ©

    Nic and Dave got married on a beautifully sunny day at Brighton Town Hall in September 2020. They are an amazing couple, with such resilience in the face of all that covid brought this year.

    They had a ceremony with 8 guests (as mandated by the registry office!), went on to have drinks at Hixon Green, and then a meal at The Ginger Pig in Hove.

    So many beautiful details made up their day, including handmade masks with their initials stamped on, secret unexpected speeches, bubble confetti and a magical heirloom brooch for Nic's bouquet, gifted from Dave's mum.

    Nic was a super relaxed bride to work with, and requested a bouquet with autumnal copper and white tones, flowing foliage and a generally rustic vibe. Her bridesmaids' bouquets were to be a smaller version of her own bouquet. On seeing these photos I was so chuffed to see how well their dresses blended with the bouquets!

    Nic's maid of honour was sadly unable to attend due to living in Tokyo, but in the week leading up to the wedding she sent some flowers to Nic from a local company. I used the roses from her gift bouquet in Nic's bridal bouquet so that she could feel her maid of honour's presence even though she was on the other side of the world.

    Such dreamy photos, and SUCH dreamy weather! At this time of year, dahlias are in full swing so Nic's bouquet had a variety of different types and colours. Her foliages were eucalpytus, grasses and smoke bush. All her flowers (except her MoH's roses) were grown in Sussex.

    The buttonholes were mainly white roses and foliage, with a little hint of autumn in the shape of a copper statice, ruby astrantia or bunny tails (one of my favourite dried grasses!) They were wrapped in twine and delicate copper ribbon.

    I was left with one special orangey copper rosebud after doing the bouquets - so Dave's mum got a special buttonhole!

    Overall it looked like the perfect day, and it was a total honour to work with this beautiful couple. Wishing them many many happy years ahead!
