The day we had all been waiting for finally arrived yesterday, the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle. I apologise now for the gushiness of this post, but come on… what a wedding! From an industry point of view any high profile wedding is big news for those who work in weddings, influencing upcoming trends and what our couples will look for on their big day. Let alone the royal wedding of the century (sorry, Wills and Kate who?!) I have admired Megan as soon as she came into our public eye for her strong views on women and race equality and her work ethic saying she wants to be a ‘woman who works, not a lady who lunches’ Serious high fives to the girl, she is the strong, inspiration role model all our girls need right now. Aside from that she seriously knows how to pick a dress, that Stella McCartney halter neck is the dress of dreams, and her Givenchy wedding dress is the epitome of class and elegance with that boat neck line and the veil of all veils. They could not look more in love and I loved every moment!
I have such a gorgeous autumnal wedding at Coombe Lodge to share with you today! Liz was married in October and wanted soft plum, cappuccino, peach and metallic tones throughout their wedding at Coombe Lodge including the most beautiful succulents. I just love the sparkly bridesmaids dresses!
I have some really exciting news to share with you today! I am now a recommended supplier at Hotel du Vin in Bristol, which is just fantastic! I have always loved working at Hotel du Vin so was thrilled when I was asked to be a recommended supplier. Hotel du Vin is a beautiful boutique hotel right in the heart of Bristol city centre and is the perfect venue for a city wedding!
The Rose Shed has worked on lots of beautiful marquee weddings and consider ourselves to be experts when it comes to decorating marquees with florals! Based on Bristol we are surrounded by lots of English countryside in the form of Somerset, the Cotswolds and Wiltshire.. all home to lots of gardens which house marquees for weddings perfectly! I have to admit they are one of my favourite types of wedding to work on, marquees can be so personal to the couple and the possibility for wedding flowers is endless!
