Les Fleurs

So I thought I'd go through my old photos of when I was a florist (and after I finished up that idea as a career). Apologies for the crappy picture quality, scanned photos are NOT the best! I loved doing flowers but unfortunately the pay is usually pretty dismal and the hours long = a fair amount of s.t.r.e.s.s not to mention the odd bout of carpal tunnel and frozen shoulders. These days I do wedding flowers for friends as gifts (they pay for the flowers and I save them the mammoth cost of the labour at a florist shop). I also do the odd bit of funeral work for people I know. Weddings are stressful events - trying to ensure the bride and groom get the flowers we've ordered can sometimes be tricky, but thankfully, we seem to get there with something suitably lovely on the day.
Enjoy perusing les fleurs. :)

I made this back in 2004, I think, but I just found a pic and thought I'd add it as I loved this bouquet. The photo is terrible as it's scanned. Pink roses with silver leucodendron and pearls.
