We're over half way through the year!!!

Ahhh - so there goes that goal of doing monthly blogs...

Anyway here's a bit of an update from the last few months. I can't believe it's almost the end of June and we are already into the latter half of the year.

June saw the first of this year's weddings go ahead, another at the beautiful Bake Barn in Wiltshire for J & M. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the flowers were on point despite the heat! I absolutely loved getting my flower on, especially doing the arch at the church entrance.

Again, I can't begin to thank my sister in law (the best freelancer ever) and my amazing hubby for helping with this one. Thanks to all the prep work and early mornings on the day of the wedding something unheard of happened and we actually had time to stop at a local pub for brekkie once everything was set up.

I also met the amazing Lisa (Lisa Notley Cake Designs) who was so lovely, and I can't tell you how flawless the cake was!

Other flowery things going on have been planning several other weddings, lots of quotes and admin in the background, as well as some sympathy tributes. I also got together with Marney (Chetterwood Flowers) which is always a hoot - I love seeing her flower farm come along and constantly get excited for the new season ahead, I always come away feeling completely in love with British Flowers. I'm lucky enough to freelance for Marney making bridal and bridesmaids bouquets for couples who choose to DIY the rest of their flowers. We were so busy catching up I didn't take a photo but they were special, keep your eyes peeled on socials!

Of course life is still busy as usual here, with uni almost finished for the year thankfully, but not before another big assignment. House renovations are slow, but we have made a good start on the garden which is great and are harvesting the first of our efforts which I'm so pleased about. I'll be honest on the subject of growing - my flowers have taken a hit this year partly due to a lack of time and I have given in to my hay fever (I'm sure a few people have said it's been terrible this year, or does it happen every year and we just forget how it is?!). I've saved what I can that I grew from seed, or at least the ones that have clung on in this drought and planted them in my garden. Aiming to get going with the plot again in August and get it ready for next year.

I've had some really exciting business opportunities come along, and I'm delighted to say I'm working closely with Victoria (Top It Off Design & Hire) - hold on for some exciting Pinterest worthy collabs! I have had some more availability come up for next year so if you'd like to get in touch please email me or contact me through the website..

I think that's everything for now...back to it!

Catch up soon,

R xx
