Getting married at home ... or overseas? (More pictures follow)
Have you thought about using top-quality artificial flowers accredited by the British Florist Association for your bouquet, corsages, button-holes, table decorations and other wedding flowers? They are the perfect solution for a wedding at home or abroad.
Artificial flowers, like those used in the bouquet opposite and those that follow are so realistic these days you can hardly tell the difference.
Apart from being cost-effective, lightweight and durable, if you're getting married abroad, you can just pop them in your hand luggage and take them with you. And when your special day is over - whether it's overseas or at home - you'll always have an everlasting memory to keep.
So, rather than rely on an overseas florist who you have never met - who may not be able to supply the flowers you really want, might make changes you don't like and will more than likely charge you the earth - why not have your wedding flowers tailor-made with artificial flowers before you go? Then all you have to do is take them with you.
Whether you are getting married at home or overseas, your flowers can all be ready well before your wedding day.
Think about it. It's one less worry for the most important day in your life ...
There is no charge for a wedding consultation and no obligation to proceed.
Although I prefer an in-person face-to-face consultation, many brides these days do this remotely by phone, email or Skype. Whichever way you choose, rest assured you have my personal guarantee that you will be absolutely delighted with your flowers.
References are always available, so please don't hesitate to ask.
Here are a few recent wedding designs. These were made for a beautiful bride who is having a very elegant overseas wedding. They feature blue and cream silk roses and artificial calla lilies:
I also made very elegant adult bridesmaids bouquets using these fabulously realistic calla lilies, all wrapped in a fashionable corset style:

Here are the corsages showing cream silk roses, pearls and diamantés
And these are the buttonholes, made for five lovely chaps and a little boy
For this bride, a country look was created. The bride and bridesmaids' artificial bouquets were wrapped in grapevine. The flowers were delicate dusty pink and cream vintage silk roses, frilly ranunculus and lavender
Here's a closer view of the flowers showing the frilly ranunculus and roses
Beautiful corsages are available not only for brides and bridesmaids, but also for proms, May Queens, balls and other very special occasions.
They are also perfect for dressing a clutch bag for either day or evening events, or when made on a specially designed clip, they are a fabulous accessory for your hair.
Made to order, these stunning designs are each hand-made on gorgeous, silver diamante hair clips, using silk orchids, pink and white lace, silver diamante leaves, roses, ribbons and heather.
Any age can wear these gorgeous hair-clips - little Darcie opposite, kindly modelled this one for me.
I met Darcie and her mum when I was showcasing my designs at Ilminster Arts Centre.
Thank you mum and Darcie.

Another corsage made with silk orchids, lace, bear grass, pearls, hand-wired silver filigree balls, buds and beads.
Not only does this design wrap round your wrist, but can also be straightened out into a bookmark (it's really clever) - so you'll always have an everlasting gift of your special occasion.
