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!
These peach ranunculus have received a lot of love this week on Instagram, so I thought I would share them on the blog! (If you are not following us already on Instagram then please do @theroseshed for so much floral inspiration and behind the scenes action of what it is like to be a wedding florist.) Ordered in especially for my wedding this Thursday in Stow on the Wold, this gorgeous peach and coral toned ranunculus made my week! The perfect seasonal flower for April weddings, aren’t they just so beautiful?!
In nearly two months time on May 19th, the wedding we have all been waiting for will be happening! The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle, is set to be the most anticipated wedding of 2018, and I for one cannot wait for the big day! I think the public opinion of the Royal Family fluctuates, and unless you are a staunch royalist… they royals definitely go up and down in the eyes of the British public. Price Harry has got to be everyone’s favourite Royal, and despite the two being huge figures in the public eye, their love story seems to be a normal kind of relationship of two people falling in love. Both having long term previous partners, Meghan being married before, it is far more representative of relationships in Britain nowadays. I mean the whole proposal story while cooking a roast dinner, you cannot get more normal than that… despite the absolute whopper of a diamond ring, which is not so everyday I’ll admit that!
It’s Mother’s Day this Sunday, March 11th and I will be delivering beautiful spring bouquets throughout Bristol! Mother’s Day always falls in March, which is the perfect month for seasonal spring blooms that come in an endless array of colours. My favourites to use in my Mother’s Day bouquets are ranunculus, tulips, anemone, narcissi, hyacinths alongside beautiful spring foliage. The great thing about spring flowers is that lots of them tend to smell amazing too! So not only do they look gorgeous, they smell gorgeous too… the perfect treat for your Mum this Mother’s Day.
