Evita & Citizen Smith

Last night we went to see Evita at The Grand Theatre, it was fabulous, we thoroughly enjoyed our selves, it's on until Saturday and so absolutely worth going to.

There were lots of lovely people in the audience too The Thorp’s, The Greensmith’s, The Oxley’s and The Smith, Mark is on his own, Claire has gone out to New Zealand to visit Ben.

Now we all adore Mark (in small doses of course) but the Mark Smith of last evening was a much subdued character, he’s I think, fretful, by association so are we, because this new Mark is much more serious, much less tiresome. I’d like to think the fact that he remained in his seat, awake throughout the entire performance last night was down to the sheer brilliance of the cast, undoubtedly true but seriously unlikely. Jason & I have been to some incredible theatre with Mark we've seen Bob Hoskins, Kristen Scott Thomas to name but two, he’s been up, down, fidgeting and generally being a nuisance or alternatively fast asleep in his seat, both versions are equally unnerving.

Annoying though the usual Mark is at least you know where you stand, you know what you’re dealing with, last night was the first time in our twenty year relationship that he’s ever arrived on time, leaving me no time to apply lipstick etc.

He is a changed man, in three weeks he appears to have lost weight, there are a few more grey hairs, he just isn’t our Mark the one we’ve all grown to know and love.

Come Back Claire!!! There never ever was any doubt of how much Mark loves Claire and thank goodness she’ll be back next week and we just can’t wait, there are Birthday’s to celebrate, my only worry is, what if she arrives back having also lost weight all super skinny and gorgeous, which beggars the question why do some women always look better when they are in love and missing their beau? Where as I just look more cuddly!

Gill & Michael Morris's Magical Wedding Day at St John Vianney Church in Blackpool & Lytham Hall

Now this couple are really special, I know everyone is special but these two are extra special.

We met them both last winter when their plans were just beginning to develop, and then we met again a couple of months later at Lytham Hall's open day and the rest as they say is history, they loved the hall, they loved Paul Rowley (I mean who doesn't?), we introduced them to Stewy Vuitton hairdresser extrodinaire and of course the lovely Jane from Pure Beauty.

On the day I was as always very excited, however my excitement hardly registered in comparison to Gill's oh so lovely Mum, she was positively giddy.

Even in her dressing gown Gill looked stunning, Jane had just finished the make up and Stewy was doing finishing touches to the hair.
The totally lovely Chris & Gail from the Astbury Studio in Poulton completed the "A Team"
Ruth & Kate practised holding their bouquets which were luscious posies of Roses, Cardifolium and berries, surrounded by dancing umbrella ferns.I included quite a range of shades in these bouquets but as you'll see later with their gowns they really needed to be bold.
Gill's Mum was a vision of loveliness in lavender, Rosie made her an exquisite deep purple Calla Lily Corsage to compliment her ensemble

The bouquet I created for Gill was in a “Flower Design” hand tied style with Mango Calla Lilies, Quick Sand Roses, Vendella Roses, Cardifoluium, Viburnum Opulus Berry, Skimmea, Nuts Berries and trails of fragrant Jasmine, herbs and Grasses.
The bouquet was finished with lace from the bridal gown bound around the handle and fixed with pearls.
Stewy from S & P Hair placed all of the fresh flowers in the hair of the lovely Bridesmaids.
The very beautiful Rachael wore a halo style head dress created by Rosie. Then we were off to St John Vianney in Blackpool
We had two huge pedestal arrangements created by Shirl & Vicky to place on
either side of the ceremony space.And Clusters of Leonotis, Callas & Roses on the end of each alternate pew

Michael arrived early and I pinned his Groom's special Calla Lily Boutonniere on to his lapel

Rachael carried a basket of fresh rose petals, the handle of the basket was dressed with tiny florets and buds to match her head dress.
Ruth & Kate looked quite fabulous.

Gill and her lovely Dad arrived in a Cloud's Cars Roller

Chris Astbury is such a Gentlemen, one of those very proper people you feel very fortunate to be able to call a friend, I can't wait to see his photographs.

I know the table looks like it's on the Titanic but this is what happens when florists take photos!
Hugest and most massive Congratulations to Gill & Mike we wish you every happiness from all of the team at Flower Design.
The rather grand celebrations moved to Lytham Hall where the wedding breakfast was served in The Gold Room
Ben Glover from Rowley's doing the final check
Gill is such an elegant lady and her gown was the perfect choice for her she looked timeless

The table designs were a mass of vibrant colour, luscious blooms and autumnal fruits, guordes, Chinese Lanterns and Crab Apples.

Rowley's autumn canapes, "Wild Mushrooms & Gruyere Cheese" Delicious

The Pew End posies moved to the staircase Classic Ensembles provided the musical entertainment and were as ever wonderful
Gill & Mike thank you so much for choosing Flower Design for your wedding flowers we were honoured to be involved.
