I first met Georgie and Charlie for a drink on a very cold January evening in Ashbourne to discuss their ideas for wedding flowers and I really liked them very much straight away – a shared love of all things Autumn and Foo Fighters made for great conversation!
I had the pleasure of chatting about Natalie’s wedding plans with her gorgeous mum Moira, before I actually met Nat and Mark. The couple currently reside in London town, and while they were in the process of getting the ball rolling I chatted a few essential through with Moira, and scheduled a meeting with Nat a few weeks later. Some things they were sure about, some they were till to decide. The no brainer part was that the ceremony would take place at the village church in Kirk Ireton – quite literally 30 steps from the family home (and really close to the local pub for the groom and his bonny men to visit to calm the nerves)…but the decision was a gorgeous Top Marques marque at the family home, or their semi permanent marque in the grounds of Tissington Hall?
When I received the call from Susan, Ellie’s mum, to ask if I was free to flower her daughters wedding, an Autumn wedding, at Yeldersley Hall, I was crossing my fingers and toes that they would choose me as their florist! You see Autumn weddings are just so special. The light is usually really special. The colours are just a sexy, and candles. There’s usually lots of candles. So really, what’s not to love?
