Holly says: I LOVE the mood of this! You can tell that theres a traditional sense mixed with fun flair. The tones in the hanging installation carry though to the bridesmaids bouquets and the cymbidium orchids in the foreground. Beautiful construction with movement, perfect scale for the grand sandstone building and a heavenly palette.

Thanks Holly – no doubt you’ve made 3 florists very excited indeed!
