Bye march, and wow, what a busy month it's been! I'm so very behind with my scheduled blog posts but I did managed to get my lovely niece, Holly from Ink and Flow, to edit Laura and Alan's stunning wedding at Hirst Priory.

March also saw the first day of Spring (yay!) I just love spring flowers, and they are amazing this time of year. My favourites include: tulips, ranunculus, daffodils and hellebores - they're just divine.
I also received my first commission for a lady's 30th birthday, so I made a bouquet of 30 mixed pink roses using Pearl Avalanche roses, Avantique Roses and Dolomite Roses alongside some peonies. I was really surprised to see them at this time of year, but with it not being the right season for them, they were smaller than usual.
I'm available for special commission orders, but I do need at least one weeks notice so I can order the flowers.
How I managed to pull off a photo shoot before Mother's day is beyond me, but I made a stunning wedding bouquet with Vuvuzela roses, ranunculus, purple veronica, frittellia, hellebore, asclepida, jasmine trails, and peonies finished with sword fern.
I also made a cute headdress using muscari, jasmine and hellebores.
A rare photo of me modelling the headdress.
And of course we can't forget about Mother's day! You may already know that I'm a freelance florist, meaning I get contracted out to work at other shops. Above is an image by Folega Photography as Sarah came by for a studio photo shoot to celebrate mothers day: styling an image with Ink and Flow's calligraphy.
Within the chaos that was March, I had my first order for a bunch of flowers to be delivered. Luckily, my partner delivered them for me while I was at work. I used french tulips, peonies, vuvuzela roses, hellebore queen red, and foliages.
I hope you all enjoyed my little March story! April is set to be super busy with my first wedding of the year taking place this weekend.
So do watch out for sneak-peek images and stories on my Instagram (@paeonyfloraldesign) alongside more photo shoots and blogs featuring my real weddings from last year.
