Your tips on table centerpieces?
Guests spend a large amount of the reception sat at the table through speeches etc. More often than not, you’re thrown together with people you’ve never met before, having to make polite conversation, so I always encourage brides to have something fun in the centerpiece like pomegranates or artichokes as a bit of wow factor and a talking point.
Best blooms for button holes?
A simple buttonhole with a pearl pin: a beautiful rose with a sprig of rosemary or ivy. Keep it classic and you’ll have no regrets. Steer well clear of corsages!
What is your favourite floral request you’ve had?
I was asked to create a huge lemon, rosemary and bay covered wreath for a stunning Italian themed wedding in the Cotswolds. We needed a crane to attach it to the front of the church – the scent was heavenly!
