Weddings, floristry and a fond farewell!

A floral frame created for a wedding at Stydd Gardens in the Ribble Valley

It has been a busy week for us here in Ribchester!  Last weekend was beautiful weather for a wedding, and luckily that’s exactly what Stydd Gardens was hosting!  The on-site marquee was put to good use as the wedding venue, the whole team here at Stydd pulled together to decorate it.  Maison de Lamond produced some beautiful floral displays, created by upcycling picture frames, jugs and bottles to create our ‘floral frames’.  Our neighbours, Fullaloves Wines provided specialist wines and bevarages for the evening, which culminated much more quietly than usual due to the bridal party’s decision to have a silent disco – and it looked like great fun!

This week has also seen a celebrity visitor to the site – the florist Carl Wilde (as seen on This Morning!) who visited Lancashire to host a ticket-only floral demonstration session followed by afternoon tea.

Finally, some news that was both good and sad for us – the beautiful mirror-backed sideboard that you see to the left here, which has been a showpiece of furniture in our shop since opening has been sold!  We hand-painted it in a french style with a bespoke ‘Maison mix’ of Annie Sloan paint then gave it that shabby-chic look, finished with gold wax, and leaving the drawers in walnut with their original handles really made the piece stand out.  We’re happy that the new owners will love it as much as we did, but we had become attached to it!  We have plenty of ideas for a new showpiece of antique furniture to take its place that we are very excited about – watch this space!
