CRYSTAL GLASS AND SILVER CENTREPIECES – SUDELEY CASTLE WEDDING

sudeley-castle-wedding-flowers-by-passion-for-flowers-1

Andrea and Mitch were living out in New York when they contacted us about creating the flowers for their summer wedding at Sudeley Castle. We had initial skype exchanges and met when the bride traveled over to the UK. We loved working with Andrea to create natural just picked flowers for her wedding in an English Castle. As you can imagine this historic venue was much admired by the visitors from The States.

ORGANIC FREEFORM DUSKY PINK ROSE BOUQUETS

Whilst the bridesmaids carried bouquets with a mix of dusky pink tones the bridal  bouquet had a more organic freeform design with plenty of trailing jasmine, queen anne’s lace, creamy peonies, wax flower, delicate astilbe and roses.

DUSKY PINK ROSE, ASTILBE, WAX FLOWER & JASMINE – HEAVENLY BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS

The brides dress was  Rivini and suited the organic style of flowers we had selected together. The bridesmaids carried heavenly bouquets of dusky pink rose, astilbe, deep toned astrantia,wax flower and scented jasmine. Fabric from the girls dresses loosely wrapped around the stems of all the bouquets brought the look together.

ROSE & VERONICA BUTTON HOLES

Mitch looked dapper in his Paul Stuart suit teemed with a just picked veronica, rose and sedum button hole.

CHURCH WEDDING FLOWERS

The chapel at historic Sudely Castle is so romantic decorated with candles to the altar.

GYPSOPHILA GARLANDS & PEW ENDS FOR CHURCH

Andrea requested dreamy garlands of white flowers and simple bunches of gypsophila for the pew ends. The chapel with its history and wonderful workmanship does not suit over embellishing and this style of decor created just the candlelit style the couple hoped for.

The tables had an eclectic mix of relaxed centrepieces. Bright flowers from the day unified the look and created the relaxed look the couple were hoping for. The Vinery was a lovely spot for photos and guests mingling with the grapes hanging above a set of rustic ladders. A favourite decoration of the day for our bride.

Our thanks to Jacquie and Neil for their amazing comments ;

“The flowers were a huge part of what made our day look so amazing. They complemented all of our ideas and added the finishing touches to what we think of as the most incredible day in our relationship. I cannot put more emphasis on how easy, accommodating and genuinely pleasant to work with Passion for Flowers were. I will continue to recommend them to everyone I meet who is planning a wedding. Words will always fail to express my gratitude to Karen and her team.”

WEDDING CEREMONY AT PACKWOOD CHURCH – BLUSH PINK ROSE AND SAGE GREEN EUCALYPTUS  BRIDAL BOUQUET

I am a country girl at heart and when the lovely Isabelle contacted me about the flowers for her wedding at Packwood Church in Warwickshire I was thrilled. The church is a personal favourite and the pefect place for a country wedding. Isabelle and her fiance were living in Switzerland so we skyped and shared ideas on pinterest. It soon became apparent that Isabelle was a true romantic and wanted to create a romantic summer wedding wtih beautiful summer flowers including roses, sweet peas and baby’s breath with touches of sage green eucalyptus.

MARQUEE WEDDING RECEPTION – GROOM’S FAMILY HOME, KNOWLE, SOLIHULL

The marquee setting was hosted at the Groom’s family home and the family worked tirelessly to decorate the marquee and garden. No detail was left to chance, the metres of bunting had been lovingly made by the Groom’s mum and pastel coloured lanterns were hung from the marquee.

The aroma of home grown sweat peas filled the room and a wonderful collection of crystal, rose bowls and candelabra were a delight to fill with a mix of soft romantic blooms.

Our first wedding at Kelmarsh Hall was a pleasure from start to finish and we hope to be back again very soon. Philip contacted us less than six weeks prior to the wedding asking if we would design the flowers for a very special lady in his life, the lovely Stephanie. We met up over a glass of fizz to celebrate their engagement and to plan the designs for their wedding day.

HAIR FLOWERS & HANGING FLOWERS – BROOKLYN INSPIRED WEDDING

hand held floral arch for bride and groom

Every now and then time stops still to celebrate a wonderful marriage of two people so in love. I first met Ellie and Matt when they were down in Birmingham looking at venues for their wedding. They had strong ideas on the feel they hoped to create and took time to find venues and their wedding team.

The Oratory was such a special place for the wedding ceremony and for their initmate gathering of loved ones. In contrast the urban feel of The Church Inn in Birmingham gave us scope to create a great backdrop for their wedding celebrations. They loved the Brooklyn Inspired feel of urban places. Throughout the planning Ellie was happy to let us offer advice and we worked together beautifully to create this amazing moment in time.

We were thrilled to see this wedding featured on Love My Dress recently too.

HAIR FLOWERS

The bridesmaids wore beautiful white dresses individually chosen and we created loose half flower crowns for their hair flowers. Simple, understated but elegant bringing in soft blues, nude, white and stronger purple tones. The hair was styled by our friend Natalie at Bridal Hair Specialists.

WRIST CORSAGES

For a simple but stunning look the girls wore beautifully created wrist corsages keeping to the tones of the day, with astrantia, wax flower and snippets of garden greenery. Ellie looked stunning in her Sarah Willard Couture designed dress.

BRIDAL BOUQUET

Ellie’s bridal bouquet was designed with her dress and personal style in mind. I love brides giving us freedom to work our magic on their flowers and Ellie fell in love with her bridal bouquet. This loose hand tied design included clematis to trail, a mix of roses, astrantia, lilac, tulips, wax flower, amni and helebores with a mix of garden forages for added texture. I just love her gloves to complete her look.

BUTTONHOLES

The button holes were a mix of quicksand roses, wax flower, some with delicate blue snippets of hydrangea. I love this image of Matt with his button hole.

CHURCH DECORATION – CANDLES DOWN THE AISLE

The Oratory is an amazing space and candles down the aisle in all shapes and sizes create the perfect look. It felt like an Italian church with the wonderful architecture and we decided that flowers in church would not do it justice and agreed with Ellie and Matt to go all out for candlelight. The service was so personal and on entering the church the magic and love could be felt.

HAND HELD ARCH

Love this idea for a hand held arch for the couple.

HANGING FLOWERS

For the gathering after the formal part of the day Ellie knew she wanted hanging flowers to create a wow factor over the drinks table and as a backdrop to speeches and photos. An exhuberant mix of trailing foliage, large hydrangea blooms, trailing amaranthus, tulips threaded through the frame and scented wax flowers brought the room to life.

WATERCOLOUR PASTEL WEDDING FLOWERS {FEATURED ON RMW}

pastel coloured hydrangea bouquets flower crown blue pink green

Caroline and Rob’s wedding has been featured on Rock My Wedding today! We loved working on this wedding last summer, Caroline and Rob’s wedding at Shustoke Farm Barns was oh so beautiful. Their colour palette was a range of pastel tones inspired by watercolour.

The bouquets were a mix of blues, greens and pinks using hydrangeas and roses for a blousy look. Caroline loved her flower crown, she wore it all through the day.

We blogged this wedding back in the summer, see the full feature here to read all about her flowers (bouquets, flower crown, hanging globes & crates) and even more wedding details.

Victoria and Richard had a beautiful wedding at Hampton In Arden Church followed by a wonderful reception at Hampton Manor. This summer wedding had a vintage country garden style to it, including highlights of pink, peach and white to complement the mint green bridesmaids dresses.

PEACH AND PINK WEDDING BOUQUETS

For the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets we added highlights of peach and pink flowers which look stunning during the summer months. We used dahlia Cafe au Lait, a mix of vintage roses in creams, soft and deeper pink and peach tones of Magic Avalanche, Pearl Avalanche, scented Kiera garden roses, astrantia, eucalyptus and olive foliage with rosemary for a relaxed look. Long trailing ribbons completed the look.

FLOWER CROWNS WEDDING HAIR INSPIRATION

flower crowns weddings

Are you wondering how you will style your hair on your wedding day? Have you thought of wearing a flower crown? Many of our brides love wearing a circlet of fresh flowers in their hair on their wedding day, whether they wear it for the whole day or just after the ceremony for a more relaxed look. Today we thought we’d share with you some of our favourite flower crowns we have made for our brides as well as some inspiration from Pinterest.

FLOWER CROWNS WEDDING HAIR INSPIRATION

Caroline looked stunning in her large mixed coloured flower crown, her wedding colours tied into her watercolour theme so we used a mix of roses in pinky tones and blue hydrangeas for a full look.

Amy was married on New Years Eve, she wore a  flower crown made from the flowers of the day. For her white, gold and grey colour palette we used white roses in varying sizes, eucalyptus (some of it sprayed gold), hydrangeas and brunia. Amy wore her flower crown during the evening when the wedding turned into a New Years Eve party.

Victoria wore her flower crown after her wedding ceremony for a walk in the woods at Hampton Manor, we think she looked gorgeous in her peach and cream rose flower crown.

Leanne loved her flower crown, it suited her natural rustic wedding perfectly. We made a delicate flower circlet using very soft muted tones including wax flower for texture, Quicksand roses, bombastic roses and a touch of pittosporum.

Young bridesmaids and flower girls look especially cute when they wear flower crowns and hair flowers. Sometimes they prefer to wear something in their hair than hold a bouquet all through the day. This pretty little girl wore a gypsophila flower crown.

For this Indian wedding the young bridesmaids wore bright orange, yellow and red flower crowns to tie in with their orange bridesmaids dresses. Don’t they look adorable?

Jenny and Matt tied the knot at Packington Moor where we love creating beautiful flowers for our Passion for Flowers couples.

PACKINGTON MOOR WEDDING

Summer weddings and bunting go hand in hand, particularly at the lovely Packington Moor, the gorgeous courtyard was decorated with bunting and personalised wedding signs to create a warm welcome to the wedding guests.

PACKINGTON MOOR WEDDING CEREMONY – ARCH

The rustic barn at Packington Moor is a wonderful place for a wedding ceremony and the arch creates a great focal point. We added a rustic mix of eucalyptus, dreamy gypsophila and blousy hydrangeas, soft roses with lisianthus.

ROSES AND HYDRANGEAS IN RUSTIC WOODEN CRATES AT PACKINGTON MOOR

We always recommend that wedding flowers and decorations tie in with the setting of the venue so rustic wooden crates are just perfect for Packington Moor. We filled the rustic wooden crates with roses and hydrangeas.

PACKINGTON MOOR WEDDING RECEPTION – BUNTING, TREE SLICES & HESSIAN

The wedding reception was decorated with more bunting and the tables decorated with hessian and tree slices. Just Married bunting was strung along the top table with bark vases filled with flowers. The stationery was created by a dear wedding industry friend of ours Lucy Ledger and just fitted perfectly with the flowers and decoration and the cake by another of our wedding industry friends the talented Tracy of Cotton and Crumbs. We always love it when we work with other creative talents to bring a wedding day to life.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS – FLORISTS AT THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

As you may know here at Passion for Flowers we exhibited at The National Wedding Show in Birmingham last weekend, we absolutely loved the whole weekend meeting newly engaged couples and industry friends. We plan our stand months in advance it was amazing to see our visions come to life, we believe all the hard work and planning paid off as we were thrilled to be awarded The Outstanding Exhibitor Award.

We invited Nicola of Daffodil Waves Photography along to take some photos of our stand for those of you who couldn’t make it to the show.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS – A WEDDING FLORISTS STAND

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014- Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

We chose to create a rustic glamour setting for our stand this year, we often work at rustic style wedding venues (barns and farms) and love adding a touch of glamour to the tables mixed in with the natural rustic look.

LONG TABLE WITH A SEA OF FLOWERS AND GOLD CANDELABRA

The long table scape was our main feature this year, we set it for 6 to give an idea of how it could be used at a wedding. More venues are offering long tables for receptions now, or these florals could go along a top table.

Down the centre of the table we created a sea of flowers in bronze, gold and crystal glass vases with three gold candelabra to give height (all available to hire from Passion for Flowers).

The mix of flowers we used on the table were Quicksand roses, Secret Garden roses, Vendela roses, Bombastic spray roses, Café Au Lait dahlias, white ranunculus, white anemones, scabious seed heads, wax flower, brunia, dusty miller and eucalyptus.

BRONZE TEA LIGHT HOLDERS & DETAILS

We used a number of decorations from our sister company The Wedding of my Dreams for extra styling, including bronze ribbed tea light holders and chunky bronze vases. At each place setting was an advice for the bride and groom coaster – we love this as an alternative wedding guest book.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

WEDDING STATIONERY

The stationery was by Tom Gautier of Paper & Things, we loved the individual menus and name cards with the floral illustration, and the table plan cards too. The name cards were used in our bud vase name card holders, which are just like old fashioned salt cellars.

TALL GLASS VASES FOR CENTREPIECES

Along the back wall we displayed a tall centrepiece in a relaxed style, this could either be used as a centrepiece with a grouping of smaller bronze vases around the base or as a floral display at the wedding ceremony. The table plan is one of our newest and favourite table plans we hire out, we created a floral garland around the arch of the window shutters table plan with blush pink and nude florals in bronze vases running in front of it.

BRIDAL BOUQUETS

We had two bridal bouquets on display, both tied with glamorous gold ribbon to trail. The first was a blousy loose hand tied bouquet of Café Au Lait dahlias, white ranunculus, dusty miller and white astilbe. The other was a rose bouquet of Quicksand roses, Bombastic spray roses, wax flower and eucalyptus.

CHALKBOARD SIGNS

On the chair backs we used a couple of chalkboard chair signs from The Wedding of my Dreams, Mr & Mrs as well as Here Comes the Bride. On the other chairs we created floral chair garlands of eucalyptus, ivy, soft ruscus, scabious seed heads and wax flower for a relaxed rustic look.

FLOWER CROWNS

Each day at the show we wore flower crowns created with a similar mix of flowers we had used elsewhere in the displays.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

We used crates along the back wall to showcase some of our other favourite ideas, including rustic tree slices with a grouping of bottles, succulent wedding favours, sprinkle me confetti bags and our welcome wedding sign. Of course we proudly displayed our Best Wedding Florist in the West Midlands award.

THE CHAMPAGNE BAR FLOWERS

Here at Passion for Flowers we strategically chose a stand next to the champagne bar, mainly so we could treat ourselves at the end of a busy day! We created table centres for the tables on the champagne bar using soft pastel pinks and creams. The flowers we used in theses centrepieces were Sweet Avalanche roses, Bombastic spray roses, astilbe, wax flower, astrantia and white hydrangeas.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

WEDDING MAGAZINE STAND

We also loved creating the garlands for Wedding Magazine’s stand, and made the girls flower crowns to wear throughout the show. The garlands were in keeping with their bright pink logo so we used Kate David Austin roses, lisianthus, Wizard Of Oz dahlias, Harmony dahlias, Blue Curiosa roses, veronica, sedum, astrantia and poppy heads.

We love their comment…

The flowers on the stand were the best we have ever had, and we all LOVED the flower crowns you very kindly made.

Moxhull Hall in early spring was the venue for Linda and Michael’s wedding. Linda contacted us during the planning of her wedding to help create a look for the day that was in keeping with the Victorian house, gorgeous gardens and time of year. We agreed on a mix of spring flowers incuding tulips, ranunculus, lisianthus with snippets of broom, gyposphila and highlights of roses.

Lovely comment from the couple

Thank you so much for all your help and your vision in the planning of our wedding, I LOVED the flowers and everybody commented on the amazing table centres you provided. We can’t thank you enough.

BLUSH PINK WEDDING BOUQUETS – BRIDAL BOUQUET

We created a soft romatic bridal bouquet for our spring bride with a mix of blush pink roses, palest lisianthus and tiny snippets of gypsophila. The soft ivory ribbons kept the look delicate and soft.

VINTAGE GLAMOUR CENTREPIECES – CRYSTAL VASES ON CAKE STANDS & BOOKS

The marquee at Moxhull Hall is a light filled space and suits soft dreamy flowers and centrepieces. At Passion for Flowers we have a large collection of crystal vessels and vases which bring a vintage glamour look to the marquee setting. The tables had a mix of crystal vases and tiny jugs filled with delicate blooms. To add some height we used antique cake stands and a collection of old books.

Emma and Nathan chose Hogarths Hotel to tie the knot. They planned a gorgeous day with a colour scheme of soft muted pinks, cream and navy for the girls dresses and we created a romantic look with a mix of soft flowers in muted pinks and creams.

The tables looked amazing with large silver candelabra draped with pearls and a lavish arrangement of blousy roses including cream and dusky pink roses, scented freesias, astrantia, astilbe (feathery) in soft pink, gypsophila as a delicate filler and small touches of pittosporum.

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – FLOWER CROWNS + HANGING GLOBES

Caroline and Rob tied the knot at Shustsoke Farm Barns on 1 August surrounded by family and friends. Caroline enjoyed the planning of her summer wedding and had a great eye for colour, the one thing she was certain of was she wanted to wear a flower crown for her wedding cermeony and hanging globes in the barn.

FLOWER CROWN – PINK, BLUE & GREEN HYDRANGEAS & ROSES

At our first meeting Caroline arrived with a gorgeous water colour board with inspiration for her day, tones of pinks, blues and greens. The flower crown we designed was very blousy and suited her curls on the day with a mix of pink, blue and green hydrangea with Sweet Avalanche and Ocean song roses. When the flowers were delivered in the morning the squeals of delight were wonderful to hear. The happiness captured in these photos at the start of the day continued throughout the day. What a beautiful relaxed and happy wedding day.

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – CEREMONY FLOWERS

The ceremony barn was filled with flowers, Rob had made a rustic wooden planter for us to fill with blooms from the day – hydrangeas, feathery astilbe, eucalyptus and roses with moss to edge. Together with the large hanging flower globes filled with a mix of hydrangeas and eucalyptus the wooden planter gave just the look Caroline and Rob had hoped for. I just love the rustic tree slice ring box.

The boys had a mix of rustic styled button holes with hydrangea and eucalyptus finished with twine with a billy button for the youngest. How cute is his Ring Security shirt!

BRIDAL & BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS – BRIGHT SUMMER FLOWERS

Caroline brought one of the dresses over to show me so we could finalise colours for the bouquets and we had great fun selecting such lovely bright summer flowers in colours of pink, green, lilac and blue. The long lace trailing ribbons for the bridesmaids added a good contrast to their floral dresses and finished off the look. The lace was also used to trail from Caroline’s flower crown. The bride herself carried a large bouquet of mixed hydrangeas and roses to offset her flower crown. Caroline bought cream jugs and attached personal tags for each of her maids.

FLOWER GARLAND AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

As guests and finally the bridal party arrived at Shustoke Famr Barns they were greeted by a rustic country style flower garland hanging above the oak doors to the barn. Once inside everyone  was greeted with a wonderfully hand crafted table plan and so many other personal touches.

TOP TABLE FLOWERS IN A RUSTIC CRATE – SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

The top table was the centre of attention for the meal and speeches with the rustic crate  handcrafted with love by Rob taking centre stage. The crate was over a metre in length and looked as if it was made for the barn.

PASTEL TONED FLOWERS FOR THE TABLES – WATER COLOUR THEME

Caroline had a water colour theme to her tables with handmade table numbers, beautifully hand dyed cloths in soft pastel tones on to which we added a mix of organic bottles and vases simply filled with just the right pastel toned blooms.

HANGING FLOWER GLOBES AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

Caroline had seen photos of one of our previous barn weddings and just knew she wanted large flower globes to be part of her day. The hanging globes are a great treat for us to create and we just love how they can transform this large space. If you are having your ceremony at the barn, followed by the meal and then the evening the hanging globes can be enjoyed throughout the day and add that extra WOW factor to your day.

WEDDING CAKE ON A TREE SLICE WITH FLOWERS

The wedding cake just needed simple blooms to add a touch of colour and be set on a rustic tree slice. We love the bit of whimsy with the beetle and the ladybird.

It is over a year since we first designed wedding flowers for Shustoke Farm Barns and we just love returning time after time as it gives us the opportunity to style it differently for each and every wedding. Our style is always in keeping with the natural look and feel of this wonderful wedding venue.

VINTAGE WEDDING FLOWERS AT HAMPTON MANOR – SUPER 8 FILM

At Passion for Flowers we love it when our brides let us in on a secret. This film by Mark Brown was so special as it was a present from a bride to her groom. What a gorgeous surprise for Richard and a wonderful gift from his bride Victoria as a lasting reminder of their wonderful wedding day at Hampton Church and Hampton Manor.

Victoria and her bridesmaids carried gorgeous summer vintage style bouquets, we love using vintage flowers at Hampton Manor. We used dahlia Cafe au Lait, a mix of vintage roses in creams, soft and deeper pink and peach tones of Magic Avalanche, Pearl Avalanche, scented Kiera garden roses, astrantia, eucalyptus and olive foliage with rosemary for a relaxed look. Long trailing ribbons completed the look. After the church service Victoria changed to wearing a flower crown of mixed summer flowers including garden roses which totally suited her relaxed day with vintage elements.

What a beautiful bride wonderfully captured on film.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – VINTAGE GLAMOUR

wroxall abbey wedding flowers vintage glamour candelabra with pearls centrepiece

Since our early days at Passion for Flowers we have enjoyed creating Wroxall Abbey wedding flowers in the Mansion House, marquee and Wren’s Cathedral. Sam and Mike asked us to help them create a perfect look for their vintage glamour wedding at Wroxall Abbey.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – DUSKY PINK ROSE BOUQUETS

Sam was the most beautiful relaxed bride and was very happy to leave everything in our hands. She had a lovely vision for the day and was open to all the ideas and extra touches we presented and asked for our advice on lots of the aspects of her wedding. At one point I fondly recall her saying ‘but you are the wedding’. As a couple they were a joy to work with and we loved our times liaising and chatting over details.

The dusky pink rose bouquets were soft and spring like finished with lace to perfectly suit the style of the soft mint green bridesmaids’ dresses. Touches of variegated pittosporum picked up the pastel tone of the fabric. Sam’s rose bouquet finished her look for the day with lace trimmed cathedral veil and wonderful wedding dress.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – CHURCH FLOWERS

Wroxall Abbey has a wonderful church just a short walk from the Mansion House and church flowers always include decoration of the wooden screen. Roses were threaded through the soft foliage garland to create a romantic backdrop for the service.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – VINTAGE GLAMOUR CENTREPIECES

Sam and Mike wanted us to create a vintage glamour look to their centrepieces and we agreed on a mix of centrepieces, stunning candelabra festooned with flowers and soft foliage finished with trailing pearls, raised silver cake stands with pretty blooms, delicate three tier crystal cake stands trimmed with lace and pearls and the soft glow of votives and candles.

WINDOW SHUTTER TABLE PLAN

Mike loves comics and this fun couple chose to name their tables after characters including Spider Man and Batman for the top table. We displayed the stationery on our window shutter table plan making it easy for guests to find their seats. I loved seeing the newly married Dr and Dr McFarlane on their wedding day.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – HANGING BOTTLES

Outside the church the ancient yew tree is the perfect place to let some light and interest into the churchyard. Soft vintage rose heads hanging in apothecary bottles look great and make the churchyard seem brighter and more welcoming.

Sam’s mum was keen on us adding in some bunting which we found in lovely pastel shades to decorate the entrance to the marquee. It even had garlands of pearls on the design so just worked so well for this gorgeous wedding.

A VINTAGE SUITCASE FILLED WITH CARDS

A vintage suitcase was added to the Garden Room at Wroxall Abbey for guests to add their cards and add messages to their photo guest book.

WEDDING CAKE FLOWERS

The cake was a highlight to the day. We liaised with the team at Fiona Cairns, makers of the royal wedding cake that Kate and William enjoyed, to ensure the flowers we created were fit for a right royal cake.
