I absolutely love weddings. There is something about the creativity, excitement and love that goes into every single one that makes them a joy to be a part of. And I'm lucky to work with some exceptional suppliers and venues. So I have decided that every now and then, I will blog about one of them. It will help any brides and grooms out there by offering another perspective on fellow suppliers in the industry.
This week, I am focussing on Linda at Simply Flowers in Alnwick. I first met Linda properly when she did my wedding flowers back in 2012. I was one of those brides who went into the consultation with no clear idea about what I wanted. "I just love flowers!" I exclaimed. "Like, all of them!" Credit to her, she did not roll her eyes in sheer frustration (she should have!) and the flowers she did for my wedding were perfect. It was like she'd looked into my head, understood what I was wittering on about and nailed it.
I loved the roses in my bouquet; such a gorgeous colour. The flowers she provided for the tables were really simple, arranged in glass jars and bottles, as that was exactly how I wanted them to be. I am not a fan of large floral arrangements where the guests can't see each other across the table!
Linda was lovely and I've had the pleasure to work with her a couple of times since at different weddings in the area. Sometimes she's been and gone before I've arrived with the cake, but I've always been impressed with her arrangements.
So if you are looking for a florist, Simply Flowers is one in the Alnwick area I would definitely recommend!
