Wedding at the Registry Office on George IV Bridge, Edinburgh.

"You can't imagine the number of people who commented on how beautiful the flowers were - and still are in their homes, as the table centres (bar the one you had prepared for the registry, that we kept) all went away with various guests who are saying how much they are enjoying them.
We too loved the combination of colours and flower varieties, we were so delighted with all your work, from advising on suitability for the prosthetic socket through to delivering to no less than 3 locations! And when we look at the back of the buttonholes, and see that every single ivy leaf is wired and each stem so carefully covered in thin green tape, we wonder if we actually paid you enough? There was even the pretty cake top arrangement, making the cake the nicest I have ever seen.
A huge thank you from us both for your tremendous advice and work, your contribution to the wedding was simply stunning."

Due to a sudden strep infection, which resulted in a quadruple amputation, the couple were forced to delay their wedding by two years. In only two years the bride learnt to walk with prosthetics, drive a car, write with beautiful handwriting... They are such a lovely couple and it was a real pleasure to make arrangements for their wedding. 

It was important for the bouquet to be light for comfort. It was attached to the prosthetic socket with ribbon and the bouquet was constructed mostly by the hand-tied method with a few wired items, including hydrangea leaves.
