Agghh, been asked to write for Brides magazine! - Stressed is not the word!

Terrified is!
The subject : 'Novel ideas' for a white wedding..........
........ the time to deliver 24 hrs! here goes with a taster of the ideas, if published, you will get to read the rest :-)

Embellish a focal flower with crystals for the extra wow factor

Twisted willow with phials of ornithogalum for a wow factor table centre with maximum impact

Buck the trend, mass carnations together for a fun retro feel

Ask for any material from alterations of your dress to wrap the stems of your bouquet

Dust roses with translucent glitter powder to add an extra sparkle to flowers

The Crown Hotel Lyndhurst

Hand tied bouquet of grand prix roses

Martini vase filled with avalanche, and amailia roses, and trailing grass and pearl hearts

The top table had a long and low of phalaenopsis orchids with aspidistra leaves, the chair cover sashes were tied in a criss cross style

Due to equipment failure......

I was unable to film the making of the bouquet!
Well we did film it, but it was in fast mode? and although I had planned it to be short, I didn't want it quite that short!
Check back with me soon, and I will have the clip for you!
