I'm using these short days to sort through photos from 2021 & came across this one from September at Auchen Castle, near Moffat, Scotland.
Both Grooms adore Lilies so these fabulous, opulent Rose Lilies (grown in Lincolnshire) were essential Around 150 gorgeous double Rose Lilies from Lincolnshire were used to decorate the function rooms. The perfume was amazing!
As always, all British-grown flowers & foliage to keep carbon footprint low. All containers were fully reusable after the event too.
The long stemmed lilies even went home with wedding guests to be enjoyed, everything else was composted.
Beautiful weddings don't have to cost the earth... looking forward to styling more special & environmentally sensitive flowers for our 2022 wedding couples.
A LOT of Wreaths left the workshop in December to brighten up Front Doors. Many were delivered locally, & others were sent by post across the UK.
All were handmade on either a mossed or willow base, then decorated with foliage, berries, mistleoe, cones & a touch of bright ribbon. All our wreaths are made from 100% reusable or compostable materials, all grown in the British Isles.
So four wreath workshops in Kirkcudbright & Castle Douglas took place in December 2021. At times I thought it might not happen due to the pandemic, but we managed to enjoy some creative crafting fun together!
A HUGE 'well done' to everybody who came along & created STUNNING wreaths - that's 37 very well dressed doors welcoming your guests this Christmas!
The mixed conifers & other foliage gave the room a special 'Christmassy' scent as soon as we started cuttng it up to make the wreaths.
But best of all was the gentle buzz of conversation & laughter as the groups worked together - that's the thing that made the atmosphere 'normal' & for me, very special.
Thank you so much for coming along & getting the Festive season started.
And Huge 'Thank you' to the teams at Ernespie Farm Shop in Castle Douglas & Station House Cookery School in Kirkcudbright for giving space to me to host the workshops!
