I would like my flowers to have that just picked from the meadow look... Part 2

As promised, Part 2 of "I would like my flowers to have that just picked from the meadow look..."

The bridal flowers boxed and delivered, jugs on tables and ivy attached to every chair and doorway, its time to post the second part of this blog.

Jo and Nick's wedding has been fun from the moment we met - even if Jo did make me watch the Channel 4 programme with Monty Don  and Blooming Green (I will forgive Jo at some point in the future, just not yet).  Being able to use lots of summer English flowers is always a joy - the bluebells and cow parsley are locally grown, the herbs from the garden and the clematis seed heads from Rebecca's garden. 

The ceremony and reception is to be held at Upwaltham Barn, which is a lovely venue just between Petworth and Chichester, with wonderful views across the South Downs and has the most beautiful gardens.
Just one more wedding to do today, then it's back to table arrangements for Goodwood House for a gala dinner tomorrow night. 

Hope the sun stays with us for the weekend.  Take walks in dappled shade, drink plenty and just be gorgeous in every way.

    Sam, you and your team did such a wonderful job with our flowers; thank you so much for the time, effort and boundless imagination with which you furnished our day.

    Nick and I were confident from the moment we met you that we were in good hands, and on our wedding day we were proved right - the arrangements were perfect.

    So loved were they, that many of the centrepieces were given away the morning after, to various people including our caterers...everyone seemed to love those shabby-chic little jugs!

    Thank you all again.

    Jo and Nick x
