Laura and James

Welcome to my first blog on my new website.

My first feature is a couple I adore who got married in one of my all-time favourite venues The Millhouse. Enjoy everyone.

Laura and James were married in July 2016 in The Millhouse in Slane on a beautiful sunny day.  From the moment Laura and I started our email correspondence (both her and James live in Edinburgh so she planned her wedding from afar) we just clicked and the massive amount of emails on my system back and forth are a testament to that!

Laura is an Irish bride from one of my favourite counties Mayo (another talking point for us) and her friendliness and enthusiasm and above all warm heartedness just jumped out from her emails and I was so happy and excited when she confirmed me as her wedding florist.

Laura had definite ideas of what she wanted – she adored the pink gypsophila which I too was delighted about as it broke the norm from the white version which has been so popular at weddings – and she loved peonies (who doesn’t), hydrangeas and sweet pea which I created for her in her own bouquet.

Laura’s plan for the centre pieces in the Pavilion was to have hydrangeas and gypsophila in pinks and whites placed into beautiful patterned jugs which she managed to source in her home county and they really completed and set off the room fantastically.

And there was more loveliness to come! James actually messaged me himself to thank me for doing such a great job on the flowers and for all of my help during the wedding planning – grooms don’t normally do this so I was thrilled (I told Laura he’s definitely a keeper ;0) ).

I wish Laura and James a wonderful life together, filled with happiness, health and love and thank you both for having me take a part in your special day.
