Chosen for its decadent luxury, sumptuous decor and opulent gardens, Home House in Marylebone was the venue for our couple, Vikki and Jonathan’s special day back in May this year. The private members club in a Georgian townhouse building is all about making the occasion one to remember. With a dramatic staircase, tall windows, magnificent fireplaces, parquet flooring, grand chandeliers and spacious adjacent gardens, it defines gracious entertaining and pleasure - exactly what its’ architects had envisioned. We get to work in some pretty incredible places and this is most definitely one of them.
Our brief was simple - blooms were to be the main decor for the wedding, the perfect combination of scents was important and the colour palette was to be blush and cream with gold accents. We’re not sure this could have been any more suited to us!
Led by designer, Miriam, we created two urns, two mantelpiece arrangements, pew ends, a rose petal welcome sign and seating plan, tall centrepieces on gold candelabra stands, low centrepieces in gold challis vases, the bridal bouquet, two bridesmaid bouquets, hair rose buds and buttonholes.
To maintain a consistent look and feel, we selected the same flowers and foliage for the fireplace, tall centrepieces and urns. Featuring the delicate, romantic cream Vendela Rose, abundant pom-pom shaped Hydrangea, extra-large, ivory cut Four Seasons Rose, smaller clusters surrounded by larger rings which come from the Guelder Rose, ruffled rich white blossoms of Bowl Of Cream Peony, the petite favourite of ours - the Bombastic Spray Rose, the graceful and sweetly scented Stocks and the small, oval-pointed leaves of Hornbeam. Finished with the exquisite, green-frilled Solomon Seal which bring ivory, bell-shaped hanging flowers and fantastic foliage. Our low centrepieces were also made up of these blooms, complete with blissful Sweet Peas which look like beautiful butterflies.
For the bride’s and bridal party’s flowers, we used our one-true-love, the large French White O’Hara Rose. It’s such a delightfully pure and aesthetic flower which is highly fragrant, more traditional in shape and has several soft layers of petals, each with a touch of pink, giving it a blush tone. Alongside this came another favourite of ours - the rosette-shaped Ranunculus which ALWAYS attracts attention with paper-thin petals, long stems and 3D effect. We also opted for Vendela Roses and Sweet Peas as seen in our larger arrangements, complemented by the shaded blossoms of what’s referred to as ‘a pincushion flower’, Scabiosa, the glossy-green leathery leaves of eucalyptus and fragrant evergreen, needle-like leaves of Rosemary. Finally, we used the strong and sweetly scented Jasmin to keep the fragrance in the air into the evening and the white spires and succulent leaves of Senecio.
We were huge fans of this project and delighted to be part of Vikki and Jonathan’s big day. It really was everything you would imagine a timeless luxury London wedding to be.
