I don't just do pink flowers, I promise.

Honestly I don't just do pink flowers. It just happens to be my favourite right now, lets says I am stuck in my pink phase. 
I feel white might be my next, maybe with a hint of pink... 

Flowers from late summer 2016. 

A love of good foliage

Full of my favourite foliage, amelanchier and currant branches. Foliage is one of the hardest things to source, but it is one of the most important elements, without the right foliage an arrangement just doesn't look as good. 
This spring vase is full of homegrown and locally sourced flowers, tulips and ranunculus in shades of pink, peach and white. 

Buttonhole Obsession

Buttonholes are easily my favourite things to make, hence why I am always sneaking round my flower patch searching for the best tiny blooms to use, they are miniature wearable bouquets!

Previous experience working with flowers is a must as you will be asked to create pieces by yourself, formal training isn't necessary but a good grasp of colour, shape and styling is helpful. You may be asked to create vase arrangements, flower crowns and buttonholes so it is essential that you feel confident working with flowers. 

Accommodation, travel and food expenses will be covered by Vervain. 

Before the wedding we will arrange a meeting to discuss all aspects of the trip, we will share the designs and ideas of the day with you - giving you an insight into the full process of working on an event with Vervain. 

Please email india@vervainflowers.com with your name, a bit about yourself (who you are, why you are interested, what your experience is and anything interesting about yourself!) your contact details, and a link or attachments of your floral work.

The location of the wedding - 
Lanouaille
Dordogne
