Floral and Hardy

Many thanks to the wonderful Jo who has kindly given permission for some of her wedding photos to be put up here. I think you'll agree they're just gorgeous, as is she, and they were taken by the very talented Alex Whittle of Alex Whittle Weddings. Jo had a bouquet made entirely of herbs and autumn foliage for her September wedding at The Lost Village of Dode, yet another spectacularly beautiful and intimate wedding venue in Kent. It just goes to show that simple and seasonal always wins the day!

This is what the lovely Jo had to say about Rebecca Frere Flowers:

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful bouquet that you created for me. You were so helpful from the very beginning, I think you knew what I wanted even before I did! I didn't want a big, fancy bouquet and you managed to create something simple yet beautiful, exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much!" - Jo.

Heston's Rosy Roman Feast

Those of you watching Heston's Roman Feast on Channel 4 last week may have been hiding behind the sofa whilst he made brain custard. However, if you were not, you will have noticed him plucking some particularly beautiful organic rose petals from a bunch, before grinding them into a paste with fermented fish guts. YES! Those beautiful roses came from Rebecca Frere Flowers! Here they are, in the kitchen, after Heston had had his wicked way with them. He only seemed to want the pink petals, although the end result was a delightful shade of grey. And yes I did taste the brain custard. And no I don't want to talk about it...

Oopsy Daisy

Hmmm, apologies for the peculiar layout in the post below. It always looks OK in 'preview' and then when it actually gets published it goes all askew. Or is it asquew? No, spellcheck assures me it is not. Here are a few more photos.

Fair Enough

Wow the week has flown by. The Pines Calyx wedding fair was a really wonderful day. Sunshine, music, cake, flowers, happy people wandering around in love... perfect. The fact that it took place at the same time as the rugby was a sure indicator that the few men who made it on the day were truly dedicated.

The Calyx really is amazing, from its incredible architecture to its own reed bed water filtration system, it really does define eco chic. Here are some piccies of some of the flowers I did. Love, and spring, were definitely in the air!

Wedding Belles

Doing a lovely little wedding fair at the gorgeous Pines Calyx in St. Margaret's Bay this Saturday. Hopefully the weather will hold and it will be a sunny day in a wonderful eco venue. Entry is free so come along, enjoy the wonderful buildings, have a ramble through the stunning gardens and then a walk up to the spectacular cliffs and lighthouse, looking out towards France. Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers, and come and talk to me!
