A Look Back at 2014

Neill shares with us some of the magical moments of 2014...

2014 was a very exciting year for us at Neill Strain Floral Couture. So much so that we would like to share with you the memories of some of those magical moments before moving onto an even more exciting 2015 ! Fairy-tale weddings, exquisite exhibitions, travels abroad and much more...

JANUARY and FEBRUARY included Atlanta's wedding at the Ritz Hotel, London, the Luxury Brand event at St. John's Wood and, of course, Valentine's Day.

In MARCH and APRIL we embraced the usual busy periods of Easter and Mother's Day while embarking on a new project as the 2014 Ambassador for the Tomas De Bruyne Gloriosa Rothschildiana and working with this rare and very beautiful flower.
