Bridal whites and striking arrangements for Neil and Susan

I met with Susan and Neil to talk about their wedding after I was recommended to them by Susans colleague, whose wedding I had done a few months earlier. I absolutely loved the meeting over a hot cup of tea in West Didsbury. Using Susan's love of roses, Neil's creative marketing background and the mocha colour scheme, putting together the concept for their wedding was great fun. Stunning akito and spray roses set with salal and seasonal hosta leaves were used to create the bridal party flowers. The evening reception at Manchester Airports Radisson SAS led us to the Concorde and runway inspired tall white gladioli arrangements set with individual lights onto mirrors.

Neil and Susan sent me a lovely note afterwards saying 'Thank you very much for all your help with the flowers for our wedding. I know we pretty much left it all to you, but that's because we knew we could rely on you and you didn't let us down - they were amazing!' Here's some pics and big congratulations to Mr and Mrs Angelinetta xxx

Susan's elegant bouquet of roses, spray roses, salal and hosta leaves and striking seasonal gladioli in white set in metre high vases.

Individual lights placed into the water in the vases gave a glow reminiscent of the anticipation of take off on the way to a fantastic holiday.
