Don't throw your husband under a bus
Whilst making these wedding flowers, I watched many episdes of The Real Housewives of Orange County, late into the night.
I adored this couple, after meeting them, I wanted to put them in my pocket and take them home.
I didn't, because that would be odd.
Instead i made them flowers for their wedding, sweetpeas, lily of the valley, freesia, stock, roses, hydrangea. poppy heads, sage, rosemary, mint and many many other things.
and my sisters and i loaded it all and drove to meet the bride and her maids, who all enquired as to the whereabouts of The Hound. Then onto Claridges, where we behaved like tourists as i snapped them outside and tried to work the new fandangly parking meters by text.
and we snacked on the pink champagne truffles the bride had given us for sustenance. Top marks.
and then Clara came and took photos with an old Russian medium format camera.
and then we went for lunch, and realised that outside of work, everybody wearing striped top, jeans, red lipstick, blonde hair, probably looked a little odd.
and then the bride and groom emailed the following day to say thank you. It was a beautiful email, i cried.
I can't wait for the pro pictures....
Thank you to my sisters. Same time this week?
