Exciting times at Pollen HQ. This weekend our new friends at LG delivered the new laundry (LG – life’s good!).
Thanks to Paul and Kevin for installing it and Donal for agreeing to have his picture taken with the inaugural loads of chair covers.
Also just to prove that men can multi-task :-) see him loading the freeze drier- see him filling trays of roses- see him doing quotes at the computer – a very quiet Sunday afternoon for a top wedding florist – after setting up a stunning wedding at Buxted Park in the morning!
Thanks to our friends at LG (Life’s Good) the machines have unique super quiet inverter drive- (just to get a bit of product placement info in there to say thanks for the equipment!)
Eagle eye blog viewers will see one of the trays of roses for the freeze drier contains Illusion roses – we are trialling them and will have them for limited special orders – delivery dates TBC
We have also found on a fruitful trip to Holland some ice white dianthus which look as if they will dry very well and keep that bright white colour which is so hard to replicate with roses. We also found this amazing purple tinted dianthus which looks as if it will dry into a perfect match for Cadburys purple which is very, popular this year and next – we have got some sashes made already, as well as some new aubergine sashes which are a spot on match for aubergine calla lilies.
We used them at Pelham House recently.
We did two weddings on the same day at Pelham house and both lovely brides called Angela (1 x stunning aubergine callas/sashes) (1 x gorgeous vintage arrangements in mirror cub vases with matching petals), then a spin up to Buxted park for a gorgeous peony and grand prix rose themed wedding with stunning bright red taffeta sashes to match the roses.
The following day I had a really good chat with Joanne at Elegant Stationery – she has got some fantastic easels coming over from Italy which she will have available alongside her stunning stationery. She is now based at Ote Hall farm, a visit to her showroom is a must do on the planning list. We originally bought an easel to hold her table plan on display at the Pollen studio; it proved so popular with brides though that it seems to have ended up at Buxted Park in constant use on a fairly permanent basis.
Every time I try and sneak it back for consultations, Marc (F and B manager at Buxted Park) collars me and we leave it behind again for a wedding…………….
A couple of weeks ago we did a super wedding with Kim and Anne Marie ( KDH Photo) at Buxted Park. The lovely couple spent the morning together as the preparations took place. The bride sat in the crystal bar having a cup of tea while the groom made sure all the final details were coming together. There are some pictures of Sally and Rob’s special confetti moment on their blog here. It was lovely to be a part of it
We worked with Sarah critchlow too at Upwaltham barns again
Gorgeous pictures of Sophie and James’ wedding and Sarah’s shots show the venue so well and some very touching moments to be treasured of a very special day
Also I must add a new recommendation from the Pollen team – Jeni Dodson for bridal hair and make-up, we have been seeing gorgeous looking ( and happy brides) and we found out it was all thanks to Jeni. Her website is here plus she is now featured on our directory too
