Pink flowers

You may have noticed I am trying to put this years weddings into categories rather than by the month and as the title suggests this is the pink category. However some may overlap and appear in two posts but hey if they are pretty who cares!

We start off with with Hannah and Dan’s wedding at Blackstock Barn back in April:

Another Blackstock wedding in June had mainly roses in pink and ivory as the cake below shows:

Another wedding in June had similar colours with a touch of mint:

And with gypsophila:

Not forgetting the corsages with lisianthus:

Joanna and Steve got married in July at The Barn in Tunbridge Wells, another great venue with a pretty garden and very hospitable Philippe at the helm! I met this lovely couple at least 2 years before their wedding and we kept in touch, a change of colour along the way from coral to pink and here they are:

And they had pretty jam jars for the ceremony which doubled up as table flowers:

We had 2 very pink weddings in September, Sally and Matt at the lovely Wadhurst Castle:

And Lizzie & Marc at The George in Rye with mainly roses, freesia and lisianthus:

It is difficult to know where to draw the line on colour as we had a number of other weddings with pink flowers but more of a mixed bunch so that is where I think I will put them. But to finish up here is a lovely ‘antique’ rose bouquet with mixed muted pinks, rosemary and eucalyptus foliage.

There is a great blog about the wedding and more images if you go to written by the bride’s daughter.

Fresh Start, Flowers from Rye

Welcome to our new blog! Not forgetting new website. These have come about due to a change of direction after 10 years of owning and running the shop in Mayfield we are now based at home in a studio by the river Brede in Winchelsea Beach, near Rye. We have slightly changed our name and our business in that we are concentrating on weddings ands events rather than the day to day flower deliveries but still do corporate flowers. It means we can devote all our time to our weddings and the season has started well with a number under our belt already and a busy summer ahead. We cover East Sussex and Kent as before and would love to hear from you if you are planning a wedding or event.

So here is where we work

The eclectic mix of vases and flowers is still very much on trend with brides making it all very personal with the finishing touches.

Peonies are very popular with their lovely blousy blooms and array of colours from white, through the pinks to red and corals and look good on ‘naked’ cakes:

So there we have it the first blog on our new website, we will be posting our weddings on a regular basis and any other interesting snippets we feel worthy of sharing with you.
