MEET CLARE ELIZABETH KILGOUR

Every once and a while we like to feature a friend of Dearly Beloved, today we introduce florist, jewellery designer and all round talented lady Clare Elizabeth Kilgour.

Clare works with the most ethical materials she can including eco silver, brass, wood, locally sourced flowers and even found botanicals.

FLOWERS

Although known for her beautifully wild bridal bouquets and charming buttonholes Clare has a diverse portfolio including more alternative creations such as flower crowns and floral jewellery.

We had been admiring Clare's florals for a while now and so when the time came for us to choose someone to create the floral arrangements for our wedding day she was the perfect choice.

Abi: "She created all of our wedding flowers including a beautiful mantelpiece garland which we said our vows in front of; we didn't really have a solid plan of the flowers we wanted her to use but when I picked up my bouquet I can honestly say it just "felt like me" - 100% nailed it!"

Devon Wed Meet Up // Inspiration for creative coastal wedding celebrations

This summer we were invited to join a team of fellow Devon wedding suppliers to create a coastal inspired look for couples planning weddings by the sea - The perfect theme for our beautiful county.

Hazel Parsons, organiser of the Devon Wed Meet Up (a great event for networking with other creative suppliers) coordinated with the team over at The Duke of Cornwall Hotel, Venetia Norrington Photography and a whole host of other talented folks to bring together these ideas for nautical nuptials... And then we all had delicious cocktails - An amazing day, right?

The hardest thing about having a wedding theme is knowing how much detail to add... You want to theme to be obvious enough that it's noticed but of course still be as elegant (it's your wedding after all). These delicate floral arrangements from The Velvet Daisy and added decorative touches from The Wedding Hub are a great example of how a wedding concept can come together with style.

After the shoot the Devon Wed Meet Up networking kicked off with talks from industry folk, cocktails from the clever guys at Tigermilk and a S'mores Bar (a really fun American style treat) provided by Proper Job Parties.
