Amy, Laura and Joanna are three sisters who have taken over one of London’s oldest and most prestigious florists, William Hayford and transformed it into Hayford & Rhodes. The Rhodes sisters decided to leave their old careers to follow their utter love of flowers. A challenge not to be sniffed at, the girls have initiated the rebranding of the company with a modern edge, whilst maintaining the timeless elegance synonymous with

The Absolutely Beautiful Weddings Show
December 10, 2009
This weekend, I enjoyed a rare supper with two great friends and found myself chatting with them about a new show I'm attending at Claridge's on 28 March next year called The Absolutely Beautiful Weddings Show. I was moved and amazed by both of my friends - Jo, just back from Harvard and Jane, a consultant anaesthetist - offering to help for the sheer love of it!
'Girls! It's hard work!' Yet, I know it's also an irresistible mix of fun and glamour so, I've accepted their offer, sparking great excitement!
The show certainly looks set to be a lovely, intimate affair full of gorgeous indulgences! Joining me are a select gro, including Magpie Vintage and Emmy Shoes. Websites of others are below.
Also there, are the great Tenors Unlimited. They sang to me in a champagne reception at the Designer Wedding Show earlier this year, and my knees just melted! They sing at weddings and believe me, they are truly unforgettable! Swoon, swoon!
