Winter time blooms

Yes folks, you can have beautiful colourful flowers for your wedding in winter! Who knew? It’s actually hard to tell in these images but the open flower on that Magnolia stem was bigger than my open hand. And I have big hands. Not the fine and delicate long fingered hands of a piano player…more like a pair of well used, gardeners/ workers hands with permanently dirty fingernails. No matter how hard I scrub. But I digress…

August is so great because it’s the start of the spring blooms; Ranunculus, Sweet Pea, Hyacinth, Freesia, Tulips, Magnolia and Blossom, and also the peak time for beautiful wintery flowers and bulbs such as Hellabores, Daffodil, Cymbidium orchids and Wattle. Natures best kept secret.

The cooler months are the best time for us all to holiday and take a break due to fewer events and weddings. It’s a bit like florists new year starts On September 1st.  And when it all starts back up in Spring it’s ALL ON! October, November and December were so busy and big for us that we cast our net out into the world to see if we could catch an amazing florist to join us. We did. Her name is Asha and she is ACE.
