Lorna and Ian’s wedding took place at The Double Tree by Hilton Hotel, on a scorching hot day at the beginning of July. I think it was one of the hottest days of the summer! (28 degrees) I clearly remember delivering the flowers in stifling heat…the kind of heat that makes a florist just a little nervous.
There was no problem with these gorgeous blooms though, Lorna’s bouquet was a classic mix of Roses, Freesia, and Orchids which all stand up really well, even on the hottest of days. They may have been a selection of traditional summer blooms, but we bought them ‘bang up to date’ with a modern twist, a sumptuous, cascading, hand tied design in the most amazing colour palette. Which as it happens turned out to be THE #Pantone colour for 2018 ”Ultra Violet”…..(Were we in on it first)?
Lorna was such a lovely, relaxed bride to work with, and of course her wish as any bride was for a ‘perfect day’ But as is evident in this little snippet she told me about their day.
”We were travelling down the motorway in our little vintage car, when it slowed down to 20 mph!! But hey, if the worst comes to the worst and it stops?….What will we do?……Get a taxi, of course!”

Lorna’s stunning gown was from Labelle Boutique. in Sutton in Ashfield.

Another great piece of advice from Lorna and Ian,
”Take a little time out on your own, at some point in the day, relax and reflect on the day. A little time away, on your own, as a newly-married couple enjoying that new and special bond that you have just made, as Man and Wife is really special and needs to be savoured”.
Credit where credit is due, Mr and Mrs English would like to send out huge thanks to the amazing suppliers who helped make their day extra special.
