Sophie and Edward

The Bedfordshire Wedding of Sophie and Ed is like a fairy tale….complete with Unicorn!

A Unicorn! Beautiful Sophie on her Wedding Day with Flowers from Swan Cottage

First contact was made by Hilly a family friend charged with project ‘Wedding Flowers’. Being a grower of cut flowers herself Hilly was very keen to know what we had to offer, we hit it off right away and discussed options excitedly. Decoration of bicycles was mentioned!

After shopping from our Instagram feed, the flowers were booked and Sophie, her Mum Sarah and Hilly all came out for a visit.

We had no idea what an epic event this was to be and a Van was required to collect the blooms.

Neil and I were delighted to be invited out to visit the family home and see our flowers transforming it into a Wedding Venue.
