Sometimes it's a supplier telephoning to say he made a mistake and your plants are now coming 24 hours later than you thought.
Or sharing the whole experience with Julia from You and Your Wedding magazine, and Tori Hancock on camera. Who were supposed to be shadowing me, but ended up doing an awful lot of doing.
Or it's standing in the middle of a sitting room, moments before the off, in amongst a bride, 10 bridesmaids and associated family members. The chatter is off high heels and gravel, and the cries of
"What time is it?"
"Is it raining again?"
"Where is my umbrella?"
"We should have left by now"
"Samuel! come back with that bouquet"
and other times it's standing outside a church, refastening the straps to the back of the bride's dress, and carrying her train through the churchyard to be met by the wedding photographer coming the other way, as i shouted out
"I'm not a bridesmaid, I'm the florist, don't take my picture"
and then seconds later getting caught in an enormous cloud of hairspray as the stylist swoops on the bride before she heads down the aisle.
and then other times it's standing in a hotel, delivering buttonholes and the groom telling you the marquee has blown away, it hadn't as it turned out, but as i drove to the marquee with journalist and photographer at my side, there was more than a little panic in my eyes.
and other times it's falling about laughing with the bride over the green pots.
I love being a part of peoples' wedding days.
