We were delighted to collaborate with Susie Evans at Inspiredbysusieevans.com on this sumptuous wedding styling shoot at Balcombe Place, Country House and Wedding Venue, Sussex. The rich deep hues of the flower arrangements, bridal bouquet and table settings set against the cool sophistication of the spectacular and grand marble fireplace in one of the main reception rooms have been captured so beautifully by Gosia- Grant Photography. Our Marble range of stationery fits in just perfectly with the ambience of the wedding venue and styling created to showcase suppliers in the Sussex area and beyond. Susie describes the look she created as " rich and opulent ", and we couldn't agree with her more! Wedding planning skills of bringing " perfect details together " and working with creative suppliers in action.

Quick! Make a wonderful autumnal wreath before all the leaves fall and there's nothing left to forage!
Red wine, cake, and a riot of autumnal colour! After much cutting, clipping, weaving, tying, standing back and rearranging (with a little direction!), 12 absolutely stunning wreaths emerged from the debris, in the hands of novices! With so much beautiful foliage chosen by Liz it was easy to make a fab looking wreath in a relatively small amount of time!
I'm in love with mine! *sniffs rosemary as she walks through the door*
Happy autumn everyone :)

We're thrilled to be able to share with you these light and airy images from a brilliant botanical shoot featuring our Floral Affair Collection in the white and natural palette, beautifully styled by the incredibly talented and organised Jeni from Vanilla Rose Weddings. The photography is full of light, truly representational of Claire Graham's signature photography style.
Stunning flowers by Georgina at Westwood Design. Georgina displays a particular talent for structure and space within her floral styling perhaps due to her background in architecture. We had not worked with her before but boy did she turn up with some amazing botany! We would recommend her at the drop of a hat for any wedding of event, big or small.
The beautiful ombre cake was designed by Ceri at Olofson Design. Intrinsic to the brief the delicate looking cake had rings of leaves tumbling down it's tiers.
We teamed up with Ross Pennington at Derwent Slate to produce slate place cards, menus and table plans as part of our Floral Affair Collection and Heritage Sprig. We think the dark, dark grey of the slate and chalky white text compliments and accentuates the white and green of the table scape beautifully. We can't recommend Ross highly enough if you're interested in using slate as part of your event décor, it's tactile nature is perfect for this kind of styling.
