Where did January go?

The first month of the year is usually a quiet one for us flower types. A lot less weddings, with brides slowly getting back in to planning mode.

This January however has been crazily hectic for us. We flowered pretty weddings (pictures to come soon), been involved with several magazine photoshoots, and we’ve met up with lots of gorgeous brides (and flower loving grooms too) – both those who have already booked with us, and brand spanking new couples. There were venue visits, trips to flower markets and many coffees consumed. The month whizzed past.

And so to February. Another lovely wedding flowered in Shoreditch, lots more meetings and today, I’m off on my annual escape to rest my flowery fingers, clearing my head for another amazing year ahead. I’m a better person when I get back. With lovely brown feet.

We’ve been lucky enough to be booked for lots of super stunning weddings this year, and can’t wait to start all the planning with our beautiful brides.

If you do want to get in touch about your wedding flowers, then feel free to drop me an email, and I will get back to you as soon as I’m home.

Have a lovely couple of weeks x Steph

Goodbye 2014, hello 2015!

We heart you lot!

2014 was a super stunning year for us at fairy towers. Incredibly hard work, but oh so rewarding.

We made flowers for 92 beautiful weddings, appeared in various bridal magazines and blogs, prettied up some stunning events and worked with lots and lots of talented wedding folk.

We’ve also managed to gather a whole host of lovely new followers on Instagram, and likes on our Facebook page, which always makes me smile.

Knowing people like our flowers means the world to us.

So on to 2015.

We’ve got some utterly delicious weddings booked all over London, Surrey and Hampshire with lots further afield. We do like a change of scenery, although I’m thinking about asking to move in to Hampton Court House and Aynhoe Park this year as we have lots of lovely bookings in both venues.

I’m still waiting to quote on a Maldivian wedding, but I have every faith that the call will come. Won’t it?!

A huge thank you for every bit of support this year. From all my flower fairies that have helped create the prettiness, each one of our 92 wonderful couples, and every one that has liked or commented on Facebook, Instagram, email or read the blog.

We hope that you all had a perfect 2014, and 2015 is even more magical.

Wedding Flowers & Accessories

I’ve always loved this magazine. And for florists, it is extra special when you are featured – either in the Flower Notebook, wedding advice or Real Weddings.

We have been lucky enough to appear in all of these section, but it’s Real Weddings where you will find our fleurs, in the latest November/December edition.

I can’t wait to feature the whole wedding (as it was super special) on the blog very soon, but I’m glad that Wedding Flowers magazine thought it was pretty too.

82 flowered. Nine to go.

What a year it’s been at fairy towers. I didn’t realise that we will have broken the 90 wedding mark by the time Christmas arrives this year.

So that’s why I haven’t had time to write many blog posts of late! Sorry.

2014 has passed by in a delightful daze of gorgeous brides (and grooms), super stunning venues, and thousands upon thousands of beautiful blooms.

As weddings begin to calm a little, we are starting to work on our brand spanking new website. It’s about time I know. We have after all, been talking about it for the last two years. I promise, good things come to those who wait…

And so on to my little plea.

If you’re reading this, and we have already flowered your wedding, or you are one of the amazing photographers we have worked with, then it would be wonderful if you could get in touch with some of your lovely photos for us to feature, both here on the blog, and on the new site.

It would be ace. And we will make you all a badge. And a hat.

Katie & Billy

The ever so lovely Katie and Billy married earlier this year at one of my favourite venues ever – Hampton Court House. And what a delightfully wonderful wedding it was.

Flower crowns, sequins, peonies, a beautiful bride, a dapper groom and wonderful weather. It gets no better.

Oh and add to that little list, a host of amazing suppliers. The fab Cam and Pen at Mckinley-Rodgers were in charge of the delicious photos. A big thank you for letting me share them on my blog.

The yummy Kaz Fernando helped make the blushing bride look extra beautiful, Surrey Brides dressed Katie, and one of our favourite caterers, Acclaim, fed and watered all the guests.

Katie and Billy had strong ideas of what they wanted their day (and their flowers) to look like, and we were lucky enough to get the job of making it all come to life, with the help of some super stunning David Austin roses and the odd peony or two!

A huge thank you to Katie and Billy for choosing us to make your wedding extra pretty. We loved every minute.

Louisa & Rich

This super stunning couple got married towards the end of last year, but I realised yesterday that I had never shared Eddie Judd Photography’s perfectly pretty pictures.

Louisa and Rich married at St Raphael’s Church in Kingston, before heading to The Wharf in Teddington, with a boat as their chariot!

Louisa found us through her good friend Sarah, whose wedding we had flowered in Eastbourne a few months earlier. We love the power of recommendations.

Thanks Louisa and Rich for choosing us to fill your day with all things pastel and pretty, and thanks to Eddie for sharing the photos with us, we reckon you captured the day perfectly.

“I just wanted to say such a big thank you for the most beautiful flowers you could have ever given us for the wedding! The bouquets were stunning and everyone said so too. I could not have loved my bouquet any more…! I am attempting to dry it out as I don’t want to throw it away. It was such a lovely surprise too when we arrived at The Wharf and the flowers looked so picture perfect pretty and way past expectations of how we imagined it to look. You really made the extra effort with the finishing touches and we couldn’t have been happier with everything. All day people were praising the flowers so I can not thank you and Fairy Nuff flowers enough! x” – Louisa and Rich

Emilia & Adam at Ham Polo Club

Emilia and Adam are one of the cutest couples going.

They married at the end of May, and what a day it was.

We got to decorate the church with wild ivy, roses, and buckets of gypsophila. Ham Polo Club got prettied up with bundles of jars that Emilia, and her family and friends, had patiently decorated with lace, and we got to fill with deliciously scented petals… and then there were the blowsy bridal blooms.

I got to use a whole host of my favourite flowers too – peonies, sweet peas, stocks, and garden roses in a perfect pastel palette.

The gorgeous photos of the day were taken by Amy B Photography – and oh how I love them. Thank you for letting me feature them on my blog Amy.

And a huge thank you to Emilia and Adam for being super sweet, and for choosing us to flower your terribly lovely wedding. We had the most fun.

“I just wanted to write a short note to say thank you so much for the truly amazing work in creating our beautiful, stunning, glorious wedding blooms!! I honestly can’t thank you enough. Everyone was just completely in love with the flowers. You are a genius. Honestly! Just. Amazing. :) Thank you so much, really, your gorgeous work just made our day more beautiful than we could’ve imagined. xx” – Emilia and Adam

Where has the last month gone?

Since my last blog post a month ago (that’s really rubbish of me), we have flowered 14 gorgeous weddings and been surrounded by pretty petals and beautiful brides – for this year, for next year and for 2016. There are some very, very organised ladies out there!

It’s also been a cracking month for fairy nuff flowers on Facebook, where we now have over 1000 likes, and on Instagram, where we currently have 5340 followers. It still amazes me. But I love it so.

I have to chase up all the lovely photographers that we have worked with for proper pictures, but here are a few of our flowery creations over the last four weeks… just in case you don’t follow us on Instagram or Facebook.

Hope you have all had a lovely month. Promise I won’t stay away as long again. Promise.
