Hello double page spread in this month’s Wedding Flowers Magazine!

November 12, 2014By 0 Comments

Flower lovers, this month’s Wedding Flower magazine is a good one, and not just because we have a double page spread in it!

I’ve been thumbing through for inspiration and can’t wait to make some more bouquets tomorrow!

I made a table centre, bouquet, corsage and a hair comb (my new favourite thing to do!) Using stunningly huge English dahlia, garden roses, spray roses mixed with opulus berries, clematis and chocolate smelling Cosmos. The look is very informal and gardeny. Hope you like!

Peonies, peonies, peonies at the ICA

November 3, 2014By 0 Comments

“Peonies, peonies peonies!” is what Jesse said to me when we met. So we did. In everything.

This stylish couple had designed some wonderful decor  which I’ve included in this post because it is just so perfect with the flowers. I love the simplicity of the detailing, clean but witty.

Our flowers were made from a light,  fresh palette of ivory, blush pinks and touches of a punchy coral. The shapes were round and full but the clusters made the tables have an airiness that works beautifully with all the clever detailing. Peonies of course were the star of show, but we also had stunning roses and hydrangea and astilble in the mix too.

Enjoy!

Ice cream hues in this gorgeous May wedding at Gaynes Park

October 14, 2014By 0 Comments

 

Doing the flowers for Caren and Paul’s wedding was such a joy. Caren is a total babe!  It’s such a privilege when lovely couples want you to do their wedding flowers.

Simple and elegant was the brief for the overall look and feel of the day. The colour palette was made from soft pastel colours of ivory, cream and blush pinks. Or ice cream hues as I like to call them!  May is great time for British flowers, especially peonies, roses and hydrangea, which we used in abundance. The shapes of the arrangements were round and full with no foliage showing to create clean lines, no fuss. This look is timeless chic.

Here are the highlights of the day, I hope you like them

Elegant April wedding at the Cadogan Hotel, London

September 29, 2014By 0 Comments

There are some gorgeous flowers available in Spring, delicate, pretty and fragrant. Lorraine and Mac’s elegant, intimate wedding at the Cadogan Hotel in Chelsea used a selection Spring flowers to create a sophisticated yet romantic look. We added hydrangea and roses to domes of anemones, ranunculus and narcissi which filled the tables. Crystal candlesticks and tea-lights to finish the look.

Thank you Lyndsey Goddard for the lovely professional pictures here and capturing the mood.

May wedding at the Caledonian Club

July 4, 2014By 1 Comment

Don’t you just love a summer wedding?! Rhona and Pete’s beautiful day was all about the romance of delicate summer flowers and we felt the love! Garden roses, peonies, sweet peas, scabiosa and astilbe. Clematis and nigella hovered above the arrangements like butterflies. Even alliums popped up!

We wanted to add elements of a country garden to the stunning formal setting that this the Caledonian Club so used formal candelabra and silver bowls filling them them pretty summer flowers.

To keep things relaxed there was no colour palette, we kept it fresh and summery by  mixing pastels. Adding the light blue muscari in Rhona’s bouquet really lifted it. I like to add a pop of colour to pastels to keep them modern and unexpected so you will see incredible coral peonies in the table arrangements.

The challenge for me was not to use hydrangea! Rhona is not a fan and we were going for a lighter, airier look. But looking at these pictures I’m really glad we used more delicate, whimsical meadow flowers to create this wedding.

The beautiful images are by Kristen Mavric. I hope you enjoy them.
