Deirdre and Patrick scored the perfect summer day for their outdoor wedding ceremony at  the charming Ballyvolane House in Castlyons, Co. Cork, in September 2017.  Choosing flowers in soft summer pastels with pops of yellow with lots of flowy foliage tied in perfectly with the mint green bridesmaid’s dresses. Ballyvolane House’s outdoor ceremony venue perfectly suited the relaxed, country garden style flower decor.  Loose bunches were casually tied with raffia on the vintage timber folding chairs, and unity candles were… Read more »

We’ve been really busy with weddings the last few weeks, working hard to post photos of all the designs we’ve come up with lately!  Just love how these really vintage-y, petite little bouquets came out, with matching buttonholes featuring feathery limonium and astrantia.  The bouquets feature ranunculus, anemone, and roses and are a great late spring/early summer combination.  This style would work just as well with summer flowers, lavender would be great in these!

We did the most beautiful spring wedding flowers last week, the bride chose this vibrant combination of anemone, tulips, and roses, and they turned out so amazing!  The bridesmaid wore cobalt blue, and the matching ribbon just made the colours pop, just stunning. Anemone are a great choice for spring weddings, great value and come in brilliant bright colours as well as the popular white variety with the black centre.  Perfect for all the navy and royal blue bridesmaids’ dresses… Read more »

Another recent bridal bouquet using Cool Water roses…love this rose, the perfect shade of purpley-pink to go with all the navy and midnight blue bridesmaids’ dresses that are popular right now.  Combined with all of our favourite summer flowers–phlox, stock, chamomile, viburnum–it has become a bit of a signature bouquet for us!
