Grace & Martyn.
When i first met Grace & Martyn & we discussed their flower brief for their wedding i was super excited & their flower designs quickly sprung into my creative mind ! Natural , gentle designs with colour & British local flower , textures & natural movement with silk ribbons to finish the bridal party bouquets & the bridal flower crown.
I was so happy with the finished result & my flowery excitement continued after the wedding !
