Life, Love and Caesar Salad

The wonderful thing about being in this business is, that you get to meet so many great people. Yesterday we took one of our favourite photographers, Lloyd Dobbie out to lunch at our local Fulham eaterie, Joe's Brasserie. We first met him last December when we worked on the same wedding in the picturesque village of Bodicote near Oxford. His beautiful photographs captured the mood of the wedding perfectly, even though it was freezing and the bride wore a strapless dress!! He even managed to capture Victoria and me in all our working's a glamorous life!!!

Over caesar salad and sticky toffee pudding (with ice cream!) Lloyd encouraged us in our blogging, as we are so new to the whole concept.
We look forward to working with him again soon.

A Secret Garden

If you've ever dreamt of being in a garden that seems to be set apart from the rest of the world. Where the only sound you hear is the soft humming of bees on vast beds of lavender and the soft crunch of gravel underfoot. Where a tabby cat with no name follows silkily behind you as you stroll along paths that seem to have been there for centuries, then you must be in The Walled Garden at Cowdray. Only three years old, this paradise has been created within the elizabethan walls next to the ruins of Cowdray Castle. This gorgeous venue in West Sussex is fast becoming the place to hold any event, from a wedding for 400 to an intimate party for 50.

We discovered The Walled Garden recently and were delighted to provide the flowers for a summer lunch party, held in the beautifully restrained Castle Room. Taking the garden as our theme, we used the best of seasonal english flowers including, scabious, jasmine, clematis, veronica and hydrangea to create delightfully informal tab
le arrangements.

A Euphoric Year!

Welcome to the world of Euphoric! a place we love and have watched grow for the last three and a half years. Join us and see what we get up to in the wonderful world of flowers!

It's been a really good year for us so far with some amazing weddings and events which we'll share with you all soon, but we started the year with a move, from our beloved old studio in leafy Holland Park to our new one in Fulham (which is still leafy!) We outgrew our old space and made the move across town to our great new one only 15 minutes from New Covent Garden Market, close to all the floral action.

We were finalists for the second year running at the Wrapit Wedding Industry Awards in February (3rd year lucky!) and have continued our foray into the world of public speaking that we started last year, this time as guest speakers for The Association of Bridal Consultants at the fabulous Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge. giving a room full of wedding planners an insight into what it's like to work with a wedding planner from a florist's point of view.

We've made plenty of new contacts in the wedding industry, including venues, planners and photographers - watch this space for more news! For now though check out a new wedding planner we love, Lester Gethings at No.10 Wedding Design & Management We think he'll go far.
