I have chosen three images, one from each of the weddings this weekend. One at Walberswick, one at Somerleyton Hall and the third in North Norfolk. It was the last big wedding weekend of the season for me. Now it is time to plan the cutting garden for next year and do a lot of gardening and paperwork!! I also run workshops over the winter and of course there is (Christmas)!
Everything went well and it was a great final weekend to what has been an incredible wedding season. My brides have all been fabulous and to a woman totally in love with The Garden Gate ethos of seasonal garden flowers grown with love and without airmiles. Grown not Flown as my collegues from Flowers From the Farm would say. Thank You.
My story in flowers started as a child growing a tiny patch of London Pride Saxifraga...also known as Whimsey or Look Up and Kiss Me! Fast forward to 8 years ago when I started a City and Guilds training in floristry. I qualified as a florist and then to deepen my growing knowledge and skills I trained in horticulture as well. I trained under a WRAGS scheme at Darsham Nurseries and at Somerleyton Hall. Developing a passion for both growing and designing/arranging British garden flowers, I planted a cutting garden. Having become increasingly concerned about where and how flowers are grown, coupled with a love of British grown flowers. and natural styling, I now specialise in growing and using beautiful British grown flowers to make romantic natural designs. for weddings, events, gifts and much more.
