When our very own Miriam Faith florist, Kirsty prepared for her wedding last Spring, she knew she wanted foliage to play a big part in her day. Think herbs, grasses, tropical leaves and succulents. We're no stranger to a full finish, so we set to work creating the floral decor she had always dreamed of, with a few surprises and little touches carefully thrown in along the way.
For the ceremony backdrop, we decided to use Monstera Leaves, Aralia, Eucalyptus and Tree Fern to form a tropical x British blend of lush foliage, held together on a copper frame to design a show-stopping wall behind the happy couple. On a bigger scale, we recreated this for the band's backdrop (which Squiff is a part of) to extend the decor from St Luke's Church in Kentish Town to Cecil Sharp House in Camden where the celebrations carried on.
The foliage theme continued from the decor to the outfits, with us choosing to create a wild bouquet for Kirsty using Ammi, Skimmia, Pittosporum, Tree Fern and more. Because we know her so well we snuck in a few of her favourite flowers, 'Hanoi' Clooney Ranunculus too! The pastel pink and white, paper-thin petals of these flowers softened the edgy appearance of the foliage and complemented her elegant dress perfectly. Completing her outfit, we designed a Wax Flower and Rosemary headpiece tied delicately with ribbon. For the corsages and buttonholes we selected a combination of Wax Flower, fresh herbs, dried grasses and succulents, each totally unique and a little wild.
We're sure you'll agree, the variety of these beautiful designs created depth and movement which transformed the venues and outfits. Both the couple and the florals were a joy to work with!
