The Independent’s Wedding Guide 2012

16 Feb

We have a feeling that 2012 is going to be a fantastic year (although let’s hope that we haven’t jinxed it by saying that!)  It started promisingly – lots of bookings and already some enquiries for 2013.  But today – and wait for the drum roll ladies and gentlemen – The Independent Newspaper’s Wedding Guide has included a small feature on us.  In case you missed it, we’ve attached it below for you to coo over:


If you own a business yourself, you’ll understand how exciting it is for us to feature in a national newspaper.  We are incredibly excited – well it’s fair to say I think, beyond excited, if the truth be known – and more than a little proud!



New Year’s Resolutions

26 Jan


OK – so we admit it, we are pretty rubbish at keeping New Year’s resolutions here at Floral Accents HQ.  We have all the best intentions at the very start of a new year and by mid-January (or sometimes even earlier), we’ve blown them all out of the water.  It’s not that we don’t try – we do, (we really, really do) – but other things come along and suddenly all those great ideas fall by the wayside.

And what does this have to do with wedding flowers and this blog I hear you ask?  Bear with us – we’re slowly getting to the point…….

…..which is that one of our 2012 New Year’s resolutions is to blog more regularly and update it with gorgeous photos of our work.  Regular followers of this blog will know that we have been pretty rubbish at doing this – although in our defence, our annual report from WordPress did say, and we quote, that the number of posts “were not bad for the first year!” 🙂

So, we just wanted to let you know that we will do our absolute best to blog more often this year.  Needless to say, over the frenetic wedding season our halos may of course slip off – or perhaps even earlier given our record on keeping resolutions (!) – but rest assured, we will instead be spending all of our free time making sure that our petals are as perfect as possible for our couples, so we can make their day even more memorable.  And you wouldn’t want us to stop doing that, would you??!

Floral Accents Has Finally Bitten The Bullet…….

7 Apr

…..and set up a blog on all things to do with wedding flowers!

It was a couple of lovely friends who suggested scribbling down some of our ramblings about wedding flowers and flowers in general, gleaned from our experience as specialist wedding florists.  When asked what we might blog about, one of them – you know who you are(!) – commented that, and we quote, “I’m sure chicks Google flowers for a wedding etc. when they are making their plans for the big day…….and might welcome some advice from someone in the know”.  So this is for all those “chicks” (and Grooms) who are getting married out there – or simply for those who are interested in beautiful flowers – welcome!

So a bit of background about us and our credentials….
