The Secret 'Tineke To Go' Wedding When you're arranging your wedding, it's only natural to want to discuss the details. There's a whole array of things to be organised: venue, dresses, flowers... of course you want to go over every detail if the colour scheme with your bestie over a bottle of wine, or the table settings with your mother-in-law to-be. But for our Tineke To Go Bride Viv, this simply wasn't an option.
Viv, and fiancé Rob, decided to keep their wedding a secret.
The Lincolnshire couple tied the knot in Fischers Baslow Hall, Derbyshire, opting for a small, intimate wedding - kept entirely under-wraps except to the 4 guests who were attending. As the wedding was an intimate one, Viv and Rob ordered a minimal To Go package to suit their style. Viv said that the Tineke To Go service was 'easy to use' and suited their needs perfectly, stating:
"My brother and his wife (Graham and Lynn) collected the flowers for us the day before. They were packaged brilliantly for transportation with all care instructions. I requested rustic without a bright colour scheme and the flowers couldn't have been more perfect."
"The sun shone for our big day... we had the most wonderful time and our four guests loved it too."
The couple kept their Tineke bouquet in their kitchen for a week after the wedding, and also took cuttings from the Rosemary in the bouquet to plant in their garden. Not only will the couple always have a lasting reminder of their wedding flowers in their garden, our DIY Bride also separated and dried some lavender from the arrangement and enclosed it within the net of her dress to create a little, lavender scented bag - a keepsake from her special day.
It sounds like a lovely little affair, and not to mention the perks of keeping the flowers afterwards! Viv added that "the flowers were just perfect and better than I imagined... if we could do it all again I wouldn't change a thing - it was brilliant."
A huge thank you Viv and Rob from us at Tineke, for proving that your big day doesn't have to be 'big' to be special!
