 Hand held Floral Bouquets add so much to a wedding in terms of colour, style and photo ops!!

One thing I notice alot is the sizing of the bouquet – they can often appear too large or too small in proportion to the person  [ Read More ]

I am generally underwhelmed when it comes to flowergirl paraphenaila (I haven’t even ventured into the world of pageboys yet!)

Not to mention great for the PHOTOS!!!!!!!! These visual treats – with  [ Read More ]

Manuel is one of My Fav’s and I can never resist his work. Many Thanks: Maunel Mesarovits www.mesarovits.com
