Has it really been a year…?
I thought I would take some time to reflect over the last year and the challenges I’ve faced with the lockdown.
Why are florists blooming?
The start of lockdown was a bit tricky, with the Wedding and Workshops side of my business coming to an abrupt HALT, I had to put on my thinking cap and adjust very quickly my way of working, addressing my mindset to enable me to continue to serve my customers, whilst earning a living to support my children, who consequently are my BIG why. (Another email for a different day)
Being Studio based helped me do this, compliantly with the Strict covid Guidelines.
I have played a role in many of your loved ones funerals this and last year, which whilst I found and still find this extremely sad, designing the flower arrangements for you has been an absolute honour and I feel very privileged to have been asked. Blooms by Julie really do care and because I am so dedicated to my trade, I beleive this really does show in my work.
I can empathise totally, having lost my own Mum shortly before corona virus, and my uncle,( her brother,) during the pandemic to corona virus too.
Planning for a wedding can be a stressful experience at the best of times, so adding a global pandemic into the mix, well you can imagine.
But nothing was going to stand in the way of these two love birds from getting married, not even corona virus. So a new date was set after a bit of juggling around, and I was able to design a beautiful wedding bouquets in what was fast becoming a wedding less year.
When I met Jessie I instantly knew this wedding was going to be different, and I mean different in a good way, small intimate with the focus on family, friends, and love. (Just as I like it)
Sharing their SPECIAL DAY with their nearest and dearest, and embracing their love for each other and after the legalities, celebrating in a small intimate Italian restaurant, with good food and their family and friends around them. Nothing was going to stop them, not even corona virus.
If corona virus put paid to your wedding plans last year, and you are now thinking of tying the knot this year, Please do get in touch.
