A note from the Editor...
I have exciting news – I got engaged in August! And with a wedding booked for August 2018 in a French château, it’s all go go go. And one area where I am really feeling the pressure is, of course, the flowers. Do I go for all white, or pinks, or even a variety of colours? Do we opt for floral chandeliers or table runners? Working on this magazine for the past two years has spoilt me; I have been exposed to the most talented of florists and the most original ideas. No doubt I shall lose many hours of sleep wondering which blooms to go for!
This issue we are featuring plenty of moody hues and blooms perfect for those cosy winter weddings. Rich reds, deep purples and crisp whites run throughout the magazine, and if you turn to page 28, you’ll find our fabulous three page feature on how to make your winter wedding that extra bit special.
We’ve also got a showcase on dahlias on page 20, ideas on how to dress your chairs on page 22, a debate on the pros and cons of real and faux flowers from page 24 and floral favours you’ll fall in love with on page 26. Check out six gorgeous real weddings, bursting with inspiration from page 32. There’s wardrobe doors covered in fresh blooms, dogs wearing floral collars, a florist’s very own floral wonderland, a festive delight, a transformed tipi and an abundance of plants.
I began this letter with exciting news and now I end with sad news (for me anyway!). This is my last issue as editor, as I am swapping the world of weddings for interiors. I have loved my time here and will miss the talented florists and photographers who help bring this magazine to life. I hope everyone enjoys this issue as much as I have putting it together!
