Phew – the biggest wedding I have done so far – where do I start! Well, a friend was needing a lovely wayward rose cut back, so I offered to do this (and remove the foliage to my place…) and a wee trim of some bright green leaves on the way started off the cutting of the foliage.
Then buckets and buckets of flowers for 14 table centres
Transformed into these:
Half way through I did think, why do some people want to do their own wedding flowers? Do you really want to have 20 buckets of flowers all needing sorted and made into table centres, buttonholes and bouquets 2 days before your wedding (in torrential showers including hail stones). My advice – if you want to DIY only do one thing, like one bouquet!
Then the wedding venue was a stunning castle on the banks of Loch Lomond – cue singing “on the bonny, bonny banks of Loch Lomond…” The weather was quintessentially Scottish – fantastic light, clouds moving across the sky forming shadows on the hills, gentle breeze, sun shining.
The ceremony was outside in the fine weather – although I did look back at the gathering clouds as I was leaving the area – hope there wasn’t a shower, so the chair ends came into their own.
