Today was the first day I went to a shop which actually specialises in wedding things, I’ve avoided them up to now as it usually means things are treble their normal price. Ruth pointed me in the right direction to a place in Upminster called S & A Imports.

It doesn’t look very promising from the outside

But as soon as you walk in it is amazing, these are the views just from the front door.

This is not even a tenth of what they stock and their online shop doesn’t even begin to cover what they have, seriously if you have any sort of even coming up they will have everything you need for it. The whole upstairs are silk flowers of every hue and to be honest if it hadn’t been so hot and humid today I would have still been there. Not only is the stock amazing but the owners are wonderful, they can’t do enough to help you and although I only came away with a few bits

as I had been very good and gone with a list and it is basically all my supplies for my bouquet, I will be going back as it is such a find, a true Aladdins Cave. I did buy three things not on my list, they are my purchase of the day

They were the last three in the shop and they are the perfect colour and at 99p each they had to come home with me.

I cam home to a lovely little suprise, a small parcel waiting to be opened, I had expected buttons but look what fell out

A huge collection of butterflies of many different shapes and sizes, thank you Sue x
