Well, it’s been a while since I updated you on what’s been going on in the world of Hannah Martin Flowers!
I had a very exciting June and July working on lots of beautiful weddings all around England, along with some high profile events in London working with new and existing clients such as Mulberry, William & Son and The Bluebird.
First things first…weddings! I have been fortunate to provide some lovely arrangements for some lovely couples and the general trend this year has been pale peach and blush pink which is lucky as these colours look great together and create a very romantic and soft look.
I went to the SS Great Britain with Lizzie and David, Gate Street Barn (where I got married!) with Leah and Bert followed by the elegance of The Bingham Hotel with Georgia and Lee, then onto a muddy field in the Cotswolds for Natasha and Tom’s wedding which was a huge contrast to the grandeur of Brocket Hall where Zarina and Niyazi were married although both were beautiful occasions. Phew…I’m exhausted just thinking about it! Some of the photos can be found in the Gallery, however if you’d like to see more then please email me.
I also worked for the first time with William & Son, the luxury goods boutique in Mayfair, and the specialist events company CSA Events, providing flowers for their Summer Parties which were both great fun!
August has been a quiet month (allowing me to watch all of the Olympics!), but it’s allowed me to catch up on bits and bobs and to have a good clear out of the studio. I’ve decided to open the studio as a shop and sell flowers directly to the steady flow of traffic that ambles past every day! It seems to work well, it’s amazing how many people pass by every day and pop in to have a nosey at what I’m doing!
September is looking like it’s going to be a busy month! I’m really looking forward to it…lots of weddings, private parties and corporate ‘dos’! I’m also taking Tillie to the Walton-on-Thames French market which should be good fun. I have also been chosen as the preferred event florist at the brand new Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge! It’s quite quiet there at the moment but as soon as people find out how amazing the hotel is then I’m sure to be rushed off my feet!
Looking forward to telling you all about it over the next couple of weeks!
