It feels like an age since I last sat down to write a blog. The last few weeks have been, to put it simply,…crazy!!
J’s Bouquets, like many florists, has been inundated with work. It is the height of wedding season and we have had our fair share of weddings. I have not always had the time to stop and take portfolio shots (I really need to hire a photographer) but I have included a tiny snippet of pictures.
One of our most recent weddings was at Nant Gwrtheyrn, Llithfaen and I remembered to pack the camera when delivering the flowers!! For those of you who have never been to Nant G there is a rather hair raising drive down to what is now a Welsh Language Centre. It is one of those times when I pray my van brakes don’t fail!!
The bride and groom were tying the knot in the old chapel which now also houses a museum of the history of Nant G. I always feel a real peace whenever I am there, and I love the fact it is steeped in its own history. Apart from a walk on the beach, it is one of the few places I can truly relax. The views at Nant G are just breath taking and an enviable place to hold a wedding but it is also a great place to sit and have a cuppa and a cake after a hard week at work.
The gypsophilia weddings have been a trend for well over a year now and still holds strong with many brides. Gypsophilia fell out of favour as it was considered old fashioned, it is now a very popular choice for brides.

Incorporated into this wedding were large headed daisies and small headed daisies as well as ‘Peach Avalanche’ rose, light pink carnations, ammi and soft ruskus. The fragrance from this bouquet was divine!!

As always in the floristry world we have to deal with the sad occasions too. The celebration of a loved ones life is always dealt with with the upmost respect. It is not often I get to do pedestals and they are one of the designs I love doing! However, over the period of a week, J’s Bouquets produced pedestal after pedestal design to place in churches and chapels all over the peninsula.
And just a few more designs when I actually had my camera to hand!
As well as the weddings and funerals J’s Bouquets has continued to be supported by our customers who are just truly amazing. Without our customers we would be nowhere and I just love the rapport I have with them all.
As always, Thank you to everyone who supports our business and I will try not to leave it so long until my next blog!!!
