We're delighted to welcome our floral sponsor for the Bridal Bazaar at East Horton Golf Club on 17th May. Fiori by Lynne will be providing floral displays around the venue, and helping the What Peggy Did Next team create the inspiration station.
We'll let Lynne introduce herself and her business, and hear a little about her inspirations, and top tips for a smooth running wedding day! Over to you Lynne...
My business was set up in 2005, I work full time on Weddings and Events only but of all shapes and sizes for the Hampshire area and a little beyond. Not running a shop along side it leaves me free to focus 100% on my customers. I offer a completely bespoke and exceptionally personal service, I specialise in and absolutely love helping brides find their own individual floral style and then creating the designs that express them perfectly. I made the London and South East Regional final of The Wedding Industry Awards for 2014 as a result of the scores and feedback from my 2014 brides and after after being nominated by one of them.
The last place you visited that has inspired you?
I have just returned from a trip to Seville. It is a beautiful city and a World Heritage site as a result of it’s stunning artcitecture - a beautiful but amazing mix of styles and influences spanning 1200 years. Everything from roman ruins to Contemporary architecture, the overall look is of a period city but it has a very vibrant young energy which I love. All the effortlessly chic tapas bars serving the most mouthwatering and creative dishes help. If anyone needs any more reason to visit, it’s shopping is fantastic, the Spanish are an exceptionally stylish lot ! There is an infinite amount of inspiration to be found here, I love the effect of the mix of styles and influences, it proves that if done well you can mix styles that perhaps you would not expect to see together to great effect. ( As in Kortney’s black tie - Ralph Lauren wedding at the very rustic and shabby chic Pig)
What brand do you really admire?
I admire Apple for it’s constant innovation (and beautiful looking computers!)
Tell us about a wedding brand you are really impressed by?
It is hard to choose one as there are lots of good wedding brands around. I have to love Pronovias, look beyond the obvious and take a look at some of the dresses in their cocktail collection, wonderful if you fancy a bit of colour. Phase Eight too have some amazing dresses for anyone that wants something a bit different.
What are your top three words of advice for brides to be?
I should say Choose suppliers carefully. I would rather say Relax and Enjoy. Both are good pieces of advice and doing the 1st makes the 2nd infinitely easier!
