Blogger Review – Stock Florist Flower School

Article written by: Danielle Samantha Watson Posted on: Danielle Samantha Watson Blog CHRISTMAS WREATH MAKING | STOCK FLORIST This time of the year I love doing everything festive from seeing the lights on Regent street in London to baking Christmas cookies at home, one thing I have wanted to do for a while is wreath making and this year I finally got the chance to. I love being creative and reaping the reward after you have worked hard on something, I came across Stock florist a multi award winning florist who are based in the heart of Essex, who not only run a business 7 days a week creating beautiful flower arrangements, they work very closely with the local college, have an in house flower school of their own and this florist has even worked with royalty, for me you can’t get any better then that! So when I saw on their instagram stories that they were holding wreath making classes with mulled wine and mince pies! With some classes already being sold out I snapped up a place straight away, the whole process to book online was very easy and even received a 10% discount at the checkout! When I arrived…

The Wedding of Holly & Ross – Crondon Park Wedding, Essex

Article written by: Sonia Collett Posted on: Want that Wedding An Elegant, Rustic Wedding with Pastel Grey & Hessian Details: Holly & Ross If pretty pastel grey, rustic vibes and hessian detailing are your thang, then you will adore today’s lovely, laid-back rustic wedding. It has heaps of elegance and was all captured by wonderful wedding photographer Kathryn Hopkins. Words by Holly. Images by Kathryn Hopkins Photography. We married at East Hanningfield Church and love the rustic, laid-back approach, so planned our wedding accordingly. And my dad walked me down the aisle to Canon in D by Pachelbel. Ross and I met in a pub 11 years ago, the proposal was at Vita Bella in East Hanningfield – next door to our church. Our wedding photographer was Kathryn Hopkins, she did an amazing job and we couldn’t be happier. We wanted the wedding to be chilled and fun so we had a laid-back rustic affair with hessian detailing. Small jar shots were used for the best man toast. There were so many memorable moments throughout the day, in fact, the whole day from start to finish was perfect. We loved every minute of our day and wouldn’t change a thing. Our first dance was to…

The Wedding of Erin & Sam – Down Hall, Essex

Article written by and photography by: Matt Heath Photography   Great to be back at Brentwood Cathedral again, such a beautiful place to be married! Erin and Sam were married in early August and headed to Down Hall afterwards for their wedding reception. I started the day at Erin’s parents home for some preparation photos before heading to Brentwood Cathedral to meet up with Sam and the guests! A lovely ceremony as always and the architecture provides a beautiful backdrop for photos afterwards! We headed back to Down Hall afterwards for some reception drinks and canopies, we finished off the family group photos and headed in for the wedding breakfast! Even though we had some rain we made the most of the dry spells and took every opportunity! Thanks so much for having me Erin and Sam! As always a shout out to Lovelight entertainment, Down Hall and Stock Florist along with all the other fab suppliers for making this such a wonderful day!

The Wedding of Sarah & Charlie – lngatestone Hall, Essex

Article written by and photography by: lovemydress.net   What a treat I have for you today. We’re travelling to Essex for a relaxed and elegant wedding in the countryside but that’s not all…. Oh no, my eye was drawn like a magpie’s to the bride’s divine headpiece by none other than Emmy London. If you’re a regular visitor to these pages, you’ll know how exceptional designer Emmy Scarterfield’s shoes and bridal accessories are, so it’s wonderful to see one worn with such style.  May I introduce Sarah and Charlie, both insurance brokers? They first met at work and wed on 25 August in a church service and marquee reception at 16th-century Tudor manor house, Ingatestone Hall near Chelmsford, Essex. Rather than choosing a specific theme, the couple chose elements and colours which appealed to their taste, resulting in this romantic and classically beautiful celebration. Photography Lucy Long Photography These wonderfully natural images, infused with a light and airy touch, are from the camera of Lucy Long Photography, who Sarah stumbled upon on Love My Dress. “We were drawn to Lucy’s style when I saw a feature on Love My Dress of a wedding she did. I loved how natural and atmospheric the photographs were. We really didn’t…

The Wedding of Ami & Alex – Gosfield Hall, Essex

Article written by and photography by: White Stag Weddings   Ami & Alex's Gosfield Wedding On a very British, slightly drizzly spring day, we had the pleasure of photographing Ami & Alex’s beautiful black tie wedding at Gosfield Hall, Essex. With its magnificent high ceilings, and a mixture of traditional English manor house and French chateau-inspired rooms, we had plenty of beautiful indoor spaces to work with. Their ceremony took place in the Grand Salon – an emotional and touching occasion, surrounded by their close family and friends. For the wedding reception we moved to the Queen’s Gallery for a three course meal and speeches. We even had a few spells of good weather so Ami & Alex had the chance to walk around the grounds of Gosfield Hall! A quick breather away from the hustle and bustle of the wedding to let that ‘just married’ feeling sink in. If you’re planning an elegant wedding at Gosfield Hall, please do not hesitate to get in touch!   Credits; Blog and photography by White Stag Weddings Stock Florist: We at Stock Florist loved working with Ami and Alex and ensuring all flowers were perfect for their big day.

The Botanical Wedding of Michelle & Jack – Gosfield Hall, Essex

Michelle & Jack’s Botanical Wedding Article written by EMMA DOWDELL of Gosfield Hall | APRIL 25TH Photography by Natalie J Photography   On Thursday 25th  April 2019, Michelle and Jack tied the knot after years of planning. However, their story doesn’t start here, it starts a few years prior to this in Santorini… “Jack proposed to me on my 30th birthday in Santorini on the balcony of our suite in front of the most amazing sunset. He was so nervous, but it was perfect and unexpected as we were buying our own place at the time.” After letting the engagement sink in, they then decided to start making some firm plans and organising their special day! “We’d been engaged for nearly 3 years by the time we’d decided to start planning our wedding and so I’d had a Pinterest board for quite a while. The first step really was to choose a venue. We had originally chosen a venue in Santorini, but the waiting list was huge, and we felt like we’d waited long enough to get married and so we decided to look closer to home. “ Before making any set plans, they decided the first thing to do was to…

The Wedding of Beth & Adam – Granary Estates Suffolk

Article written by Rock My Wedding. Photos by Julia & You There is SO much to take inspiration from at this incredible pretty pastel pink & mink green wedding at Granary Estates Suffolk. Bride Beth’s beautiful Suzanne Neville Bardot gown, the epic gospel choir singing during the wedding ceremony, and not forgetting the fun mini golf and glitter bar for entertaining the guests. Plus golden hour portraits that are sure to have you weak at the knees. Ready to take a look, and find out more…? Pastel Pink & Mint Green Wedding at Granary Estates Suffolk Beth & Adam: We really wanted to find a venue that didn’t have lots of rules and restrictions as we wanted to get really creative with our day and have everything we love as part of our day. Adam found the Granary Estates while browsing online and I knew as soon as he showed me that it would be perfect. During our drinks reception, we had a ‘Gin Bar’ and a ‘Champagne and Oyster Bar’. The styling was full of blush pink/gold/mint green colours whilst still slightly rustic and in keeping with the venue. Our table setting was much the same. We had gold beaded…

The Wedding of Amber & Alex – Braxted Park

As soon as we had our first meeting with Amber and Alex, we felt a connection. They had a beautifully clear view of what they were looking for and came armed with Pinterest boards and bundles of inspiration. Sitting in our consultation room, we presented them with a range of flowers to suit their vision and it quickly became apparent that we were on the same page.   After the initial consultation, we set about creating a theme based around pinks, lilacs and a range of light pastel colours. As the pictures show, hydrangeas featured heavily in their outdoor setting, so we sourced the very best for Amber and Alex’s day. Braxted Park Braxted Park is such a stunning venue and as a lot of Amber and Alex’s wedding was to be outside, we were all hoping for the very best weather. On the morning, we heard that much of the UK was experiencing some pretty heavy downpours, but they had beautiful weather all day long. Braxted Park - ever the professionals - had a lovely back up plan, though, and we could have slipped off to the pavilion if the weather was on the chilly side. The sprawling grounds…

Without further ado (or, ‘I do’ as might be more appropriate) let’s meet our co-founder, the fabulous Sam Raindle. Hi Sam. Let’s jump straight into it; Have you always wanted to own a florist? Oh absolutely, yes. My uncle worked at the Covent Garden Flower Market, so I’ve always been surrounded by flowers. I love that you can create an arrangement for anything; there are no limits. That’s always something that inspired me as a little girl. And why this particular shop? What was it that drew you to it? It was a bit serendipitous really — we were walking through the village, which is now also our home, and we stumbled upon the shop. It was a hairdresser at the time. My…
