Houston House Hotel wedding

It's great getting lovely feedback following weddings, this mother-of-the-bride e-mailed:
"The wedding went really well yesterday and your artistry with the flowers was greatly admired, both in the bouquets and at the hotel.  The master of ceremonies at Houston House did mention to me that he had never seen the venue looking so good.  My corsage and Caroline's bouquet with the brooch wired into it was a real tear jerker.

Thank you for all your help with the flowers and for playing a big part in Caroline and Gordons special day".

Wedding at Norton House Hotel, Edinburgh

The lovely Michelle and Simon were married in the Garden Suite at Norton House Hotel, Edinburgh. The hotel's sweeping driveway is very grand and the hotel definitely has the wow factor as you approach. You quickly forget you're so close to Edinburgh and the airport as it feels like being in the middle of the country, with highland cows to boot! 

Michelle wanted a Scottish, romantic look to the flowers. I bunched together roses, lisianthus and white and blue thistles along with foliage to create a whimiscal, serendipitous look (one of my favourite styles!).
