Timeless Beauty of Clay Flowers

Nella and Jonathan McCraw got married earlier this month in Edinburgh. Instead of classic fresh flowers Nella opted for clay flowers by Blossoms that look astonishingly lifelike and added a quirky touch to their wedding day. Wedding photographer John Carroll captured these great shots of Nella’s bouquet.
Debashri at Blossoms is an etsy seller who made all of the flowers in these photos. She creates the most beautiful clay flowers, crafted petal by petal.
Although looking incredibly delicate they are durable, yet feather-weight.With clay flowers you can have any flower you love, regardless of the season and keep them for a lifetime after your wedding day. They can even be scented with your favourite fragrances, designed to wear in your hair or have as your wedding cake topper.

A Perfect Website for DIY Inspiration

We blogged recently on some of the wonderful Martha Stewart’s DIY projects, that was the start of the DIY frenzy- admittedly nothing has been created in the real world, yet, but in our virtual world we have saved lots and lots of great ideas to try! Now is the perfect time to start practicing with these ventures now the nights are starting to draw in- what better way to spend the evening than cosying up with a glass of red wine and a pile of ribbons/crepe paper/glue… surely that is not just our idea of a great time!

The Church of England Relaxes Wedding Law

Today’s new law makes it much easier to pick your ceremony venue if you were considering an Anglican church. Previously, the only way you could get married in a church was if you attended regularly, lived in the parish or applied for a special license. From today under the new rules you can marry in a church if:
  1. Either of you were baptized or prepared for confirmation there
  2. Either of you has lived in the parish for six months
  3. Either of you has regularly worshipped in the parish for six months
  4. Either of your parents has lived in the parish for six months during your lifetime
  5. Either of your parents has regularly worshipped there for six months in your lifetime
  6. Either of your parents or grandparents were married there

There are over 16,000 Church of England venues to pick from so this really is an exciting step forward on finding your prefect ceremony location. For any further help on finding your venue email us at enquiries@sugarblossom.co.uk
