I’ve just purchased a load of little gold vases for weddings coming up this season so thought I’d have a play with them to see what could be done. I love the luxurious feel they offer, and even though they’d look great with any colour or flower, I wanted to create a sensual arrangement using this seasons faves, Magnolias and Hellebores.
James proposed in Rome, where we’d gone for a few days for my birthday (we live in the UK). I sort of knew it was coming but wasn’t sure. We spent a day in Vatican City and I had no idea James was wanting to propose that day, I was too hot and sweaty so it wasn’t the right moment… Later that day when unpacking his bag the ring box fell out and rolled across the floor! I threw a top over it and ran into the shower, he had no idea I saw it. Then I knew it was real! He waited until my birthday day, and asked me when out at dinner, in the most amazing restaurant, outside, with pretty fairy lights. It was very romantic.
