ends of the day

from sun rise to sun set on the shortest day of the year

its good to take a moment

to calm the mind from the chaos that is a florist shop at Christmas

have a lovely evening

lighting is everything

its been busy - very busy

which is fantastic

but it was nice to have the time to photograph this job

every year we decorate this house and this year they asked for something a bit wilder

the sun shone at just the right moment to get some great shadow shots

tomorrow its back to weddings

where did you get that hat?

"Where did you get that hat? Where did you get that tile?

Isn't it a nobby one, and just the proper style?

I should like to have one Just the same as that!"

Where'er I go, they shout "Hello!

Where did you get that hat?"

Winter Whites at Ramster Hall

Such a lovely venue for a winter wedding - Ramster Hall near Chiddingfold in Surrey is a beautiful timber framed house.  I say house in the loosest of terms - it has a long hall, a brick hall, a great drawing room and gardens to die for.  So yes it is a house, albeit a rather grand one, but not at all stuffy - with pictures by Mr Gunn, Japanese Samurai warriors, swords and shield!

We filled the great drawing room with vases of scented freesia, roses and ranunculus - then lots & lots of candles.

We have a few days free of weddings - so it is back to the shops and preparations for Christmas.

will take some more pictures soon to share

have a lovely evening.

Polo Sticks & Posh Graffiti

we love a prop - 
so when presented with 32 polo sticks
we did some thinking

then some more thinking

then Matthew designed a coat of arms for Eric & Lucy

quiet simple really

it worked a treat on the portico

So back to the floristry.  Amaryllis, calla lilies, roses & hypericum berries
hyacinths, hydrangeas & pussy willow

just waiting for a picture of the bouquet from Lucy's photographer

it was a beauty - roses, lily of the valley & callas

more pictures tomorrow of Saturday's wedding
