A Timeless Luxury London Wedding

We know our couples are all about finesse when it comes to planning their dream wedding and the one we are bringing you today is no different. Think grace, grandeur, richness and the epitome of beauty, right in the heart of London…

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.

A Quintessential English Wedding

There’s something particularly charming about a classic wedding theme. Stripping everything back to what the day is really all about - a celebration of two people in love. Today we’re bringing you the details of a wedding which totally embraced this…

Our stunning couple, Sheyi and Simon wanted to maintain many aspects of a traditional British wedding, but one which also reflected their fun sides, love of music/dancing and Sheyi’s Ghanaian-Nigerian heritage. Family and friends are SO important to the couple; they wanted their special day to represent togetherness and for the whole atmosphere to be infectious with joy. The end result was exactly that.

This stylish navy and gold wedding was held at the grade II listed St James Church, based in Middlesex. A building with some simple yet striking characteristics - from the spire and high ceilings to the beautifully detailed stained glass windows. With plenty of light coming through, filling what was to be our canvas, we knew we could pare back and focus on fewer but fuller designs.

We worked with the happy couple to create large and small urns, with complementing pew ends. Each large urn was filled with the abundant blooms of white Hydrangea, curled-edged cream Vendela Roses, white Avalanche Roses, petite white Spray Roses, Phlox and the sweet-scented ruffled flowers of Stocks. While each small urn also had the evergreen, well-covered leathery leaves of Eucalyptus.

Following an i-n-c-r-e-d-i-b-l-e ceremony with a choir, live band, cheering and dancing, the couple and their guests headed to Hampton Court House in Surrey for a sophisticated outdoor afternoon tea in the gorgeous sunshine, closing the evening with a grand reception. This Georgian mansion has such exquisite ornamental gardens, glamorous period features and even a heart-shaped lake. Honestly, we’re not sure there are many venues more perfect for this theme than these!

Here we handcrafted wreath centrepieces for each table, surrounding glass cylinders and pillar candles. Keeping consistent with the urns, each wreath was carefully made with the same white Avalanche Roses, cream Vendela Roses, white Hydrangea, white Spray Roses and the simple greenery leaves of Phlox.

We can’t forget about the graceful blooms that made up the bridal bouquet too. With Sheyi having two wedding dresses, we wanted something which would complete the look for both elegant outfits. She selected a single flower to fill her bouquet, one which signified new beginnings, innocence, unity and purity. Of course, we’re referring to the classic domes of the Avalanche Rose - a white Rose with a hint of green around the outer petals. The lovely thing about this is as the flower opens, the green hue fades and turns back to almost white. Each one boasts a sturdy stem, topped with an oversized head and high petal count. GLORIOUS!

Another truly wonderful wedding, completely encapsulating everything that comes to mind when you think of a quintessential English wedding. We were delighted to be able to work with Sheyi and Simon to bring their vision to life.

A Romantic Country Wedding

We adore a contemporary, lavish London wedding, but sometimes nothing beats having the charming English countryside as your canvas. Today we’re revealing the floral details behind a particularly special wedding for us…

Mixing business and pleasure is usually a no-no, but when the Godparents of our Lead Designer’s little boy asked us to create some of their floral arrangements for their big day, we knew it was the perfect opportunity to give back to some dear friends and a gorgeous couple.

The beautiful Charlotte and dapper Tom chose the venues of the Courteenhall Estates in Northamptonshire for this memorable occasion. After the ceremony at the 12th century St Peter & St Paul Church just down the road, everyone headed to the crisp white backdrop of the marquee for the reception, hosted in the grounds of the stunning 18th century Georgian Hall and Estate. The private residency is steeped in history with acres of relaxed, lush green parkland and lawn space - plenty of room for up to 1000 guests and the prettiest setting for a traditional country wedding! The location honestly couldn’t have been more breathtaking, even on a cold day; surroundings complete with a magnificent arboretum, filled with rare trees and shrubs, along with a tranquil water feature and incredible views. We just fell in love with the location and couldn’t think of anywhere more perfect for two amazing people to tie the knot.

We were invited to create a variety of arrangements including pomanders for the flower girls, individual hair buds, buttonholes, ceremony pedestals, a cascading bridal bouquet, hand tied bridesmaid bouquets and hanging floral chandeliers. Together with the couple, we decided on no more than 10 flower and foliage selections, keeping every design consistent across all of the venues visited on the day.

The big, snowball-shaped, powder-blue Hydrangea combined with the white and ‘Green Pom Pom Guelder Rose’ (which actually isn’t a Rose at all) took centre stage with their clusters of flowers and lobed leaves in the pedestals and chandeliers. Complemented by the gorgeous deep blue blooms of Agapanthus Isis - bell-shaped with strong stems over lush green strap-like leaves, white Lisianthus, classic white Lily of the Valley, cornflour-blue Delphinium and glorious Spring foliage. And of course, our luxurious designs aren’t done without the most sought after Avalanche Rose - a large, white blowsy rose with a hint of green, multi-layered petals and a sturdy tall cut stem.

For the bridal and bridesmaid bouquets and the incredibly pretty pomanders, we also featured the soft Avalanche Rose along with white Lisianthus, lilac-blue Nigella ‘Love-In-A-Mist’ (which appear spikey but actually have delicate, papery petals), Grape Hyacinth 'Muscari’ (which resemble tiny bunches of grapes) and the tubular spikes of Veronica.

Finally, we completed the outfits with just three of the petite white Spray Roses for a chic and simple finishing touch to Charlotte’s hair and a traditional red rose for Tom’s buttonhole.

Everything from the floral designs to the details on the day made this such a magical moment for us, getting to spend it with a couple that mean so much. We’re delighted we were able to play a part of their wedding.

An Autumn Wedding in London

Today we’re sharing a wedding full of classical floral designs with a modern twist. The colour palette of rich reds and deep pinks gave a glorious nod to Autumn, brightening up the occasion despite being the rainiest day ever…

Starting outside the restored, grade 2 listed building, Holy Trinity Clapham, we designed a door arch to sing above the happy couple whilst having their photos taken. Made up of the large and sturdy, multi-layered petals of the Avalanche Rose, the soft, pastel-pink Sweet Avalanche Rose, the purple-berry toned Bleuberry Rose, large gentian-like flowers of Lisianthus and complete with thick-lobed, glossy green leaves of Ivy.

Inside the richly designed church, we created statement urns to surround Becca and Matt during the exchanging of vows. The Avalanche Rose, Sweet Avalanche Rose, Lisianthus and Bleuberry Rose all made another appearance, complemented by the abundant, pom-pom shape of Hydrangea, graceful blooms and sweet scented flowers of Stocks, ruffled-edged, subtly-shaded Snapdragon, evergreen Eucalyptus and bunched Oak Leaves. We transported the urns to the reception venue to continue the floral designs. The Royal Automobile Club - a private member’s club in the iconic central London location of Pall Mall, had such opulent decor and old-fashioned charm, we just loved it!

For Becca’s bouquet, we selected highly fragrant florals so that she will always remember her wedding day when she smells the flowers. Again, Lisianthus and Eucalyptus were carefully placed, this time amongst some paler petals. Our absolute favourite, the White O’Hara with its’ blush-tone, strong and fruity scent and traditional Rose shape looked perfect next to another of our favourites, the petite, multi-headed Bombastic Spray Rose. The fragrant, evergreen Rosemary shrub and its’ needle-like leaves pulled it all together into a delicate, hand-tied bouquet which looked beautiful next to the lace on Becca’s dress. The finishing touch is also an emblem of remembrance, making this bridal bouquet an extra special piece of the day.

Becca’s two bridesmaids each had a hand-tied bouquet too, this time with the deeper, ruffled-petals of the Bleuberry Rose - a unique colour which couldn’t have been a better match for their dresses. To keep consistent with the bride’s bouquet, we continued the use of Lisianthus and Eucalyptus, also selecting the Sweet Avalanche Rose, Avalanche Rose and Rosemary as seen in our other designs around the venue. Each flower throughout the wedding was chosen not only for their beauty and colour, but for what they represent - happiness, gratitude and lasting bonds of affection.

From buttonholes to pew ends and the fireplace to the cake, we wrapped up this stunning wedding with just a few, simple selections in keeping with the door arch, urns and bouquets. Becca and Matt are such a fun-loving couple who were fabulous to work with. We’re delighted with how the arrangements turned out for their special day.

Lebanese X English Countryside Wedding

Today we’re sharing an elegant wedding we worked on in the heart of the English countryside. Set in the stunning gardens and historic building of a quirky estate, we got to bring some very special designs to life…

The natural setting of Walcott Hall in Shropshire with its extensive lake, walled courtyard and vast scenery was the perfect venue for our couple, Ayat and Sam. The ceremony took place outside in the meadow, complete with a magical fountain, while the reception was held in the restored ballroom - a beautifully decorated, turquoise space with ornate ceiling, crystal chandeliers, open fireplace, gilt mirrors, tall sash windows and intimate bar. Both inside and outside presented the perfect backdrop for our floral creations, making everyone and everything on the day shine.

The Bouquet

For Ayat, we designed a hand-tied bridal bouquet with true meaning behind it. Her late father’s favourite flower was Jasmine so we knew we had to include this sweetly scented selection. The waxy white flowers and oval shiny leaves symbolise purity, deep affection and happiness, making it a special addition to this elegant bouquet. Complimented by the Ocean Song Spray Rose - a satin-effect, pale lavender choice and deeper purple petals of Clematis.

The Centrepieces

Made up of the rounded flower clusters of Hydrangea with their abundance of petals, lacy star-shaped flowers and pom-pom shapes, contrasted by the small-headed, delicate, peach Jana Spray Rose. We also decided on three types of Meijer Rose - known for multi-layered petals, big flowers and long, strong stems. The ivory cut Four Seasons Rose with extremely large bud and dense petals, the Sweet Avalanche Rose in soft pastel pink and subtle hint of green on the outer petals, and Pearl Avalanche Rose which added a luxurious warm look in the form of salmon and champagne colours with soft herbaceous foliage - together representing happiness, purity, gratitude and glamour.

The Table Plan

We continued the use of Hydrangea and Meijer Roses for a full-finish frame, paired with one of our favourites - the Bombastic Rose. This miniature spray rose is the palest of the pink available and brings a petite, multi-headed flower to the arrangement. The standout of the table plan was the Cafe Au Lait Dahlias - a warm, cream-blush flower with a peach centre that added texture to this gorgeous design.

The Meadow

Our aisle decor and floral arch saw us use a variety of flowers and foliage for depth and movement. Some of our most popular picks were added into the mix - the neatly formed, medium-sized rosettes of David Austin Sweet Juliet Roses in Glowing Apricot, the saucer-shaped, swirly velvet, pale pink petals of the Prince Jardinier Rose and the highly-fragrant, French, White O’Hara Rose. The Meijer Roses, Bombastic Spray Rose and Cafe Au Lait Dahlias made another appearance, while the sweet scented flowers, tall leafy stalks and graceful, ruffled blooms of Stock finished the look.

So there we go, another wonderful wedding we had the honour of working on. If you would like to find out more about how we can help you to create your dream wedding/event through floral design, then why not get in touch today?

A Modern Winter Wonderland Wedding

Today we’re bringing you a modern winter wonderland wedding we had the luxury of working on from the glamorous, 5-star Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge…

Let’s set the scene… a contemporary ballroom, located on the ground floor of one of the most prestigious hotels in London. A striking geometric ceiling, bespoke eucalyptus-wood walls, state of the art lighting and private entrance. The perfect place for us to create show-stopping arrangements for S+S’s dream day. Think gorgeous touches of silver foliage, white blooms galore and candlelight everywhere.

A whimsical Chuppah, captivating cloud-like tall centrepieces, a continuous garland for the top table, elegant wreath centrepieces, stunning escort card table and magical aisle decor were all brought to life, creating a contemporary twist on the winter wonderland wedding theme.

The Chuppah later separated to form two arches - one for the entrance and one as the backdrop to the top table. For this, we used a variety of our favourite flowers and some rare choices which made all the difference. These included:

  • Four Seasons Rose - a cream/ivory flower with dense petals and an extremely large bud.

  • Miss Bombastic Spray Rose - such a beautiful, petite, multi-headed rose.

  • Senecio - we love how these succulents form in clusters on long stems, white spires and yellow daisy-like flowers, leaves are thick and fleshy - deep green, some leaves are round, some crest shaped and some stand upright

  • Euphorbia - with rich coloured leaves and unusual flowers these are elegant but tough too.

  • Freesia - funnel shaped flowers with an alluring fragrance that’s fresh and sweet.

  • Phlox - star-shaped flowers, tall, eye-catching perennials finished with long and narrow leaves.

  • Moss - a small, flowerless, green plant.

For the top table itself, we designed an arrangement along the centre, filled with seasonal blooms complemented with British foliage and fragrant Eucalyptus. We studded this with pillar candles in glass cylinders to finish this elegant look.

Tall centrepieces, created with pom-poms of seasonal white blooms, complete with ferns and the leathery leaves of Eucalyptus filled tall, glass vases and ceremony pedestals. For these we selected the lacy, star-shaped flowers of Hydrangea, the ruffled, fine petals of the Patience Garden Rose, multi-layered petals and soft, herbaceous foliage of Avalanche Roses and full-finish, highly fragrant flowers of the White O’Hara Garden Rose.

Our wreath centrepieces weren’t just for the reception. Sitting on the registrars table during the ceremony, these were filled with white and cream blooms with Eucalyptus and the delicate leaves of silver Asparagus Fern, finished with a hurricane vase in the centre.

Then for our true statement design - the escort table, made from natural Birch branches with silver Birch accents was draped with white, gentian-like, bell-shaped flowers of Lisianthus and Roses. We finished this with tea light baubles, ribbons, birds and photographs… a piece denoting new beginnings, respect, love and appreciation, and one that’s sure to be remembered.

We adored working on this enchanted theme, in a beautiful venue, with a wonderful couple. We would love to help you to create your dream wedding/event through floral design too, so why not get in touch today?

Rita Colson Fashion Show

We often have the privilege of not just providing florals for weddings and styled shoots but for exclusive events too. Most recently, we were invited to create these for the catwalk at Rita Colson’s show, unveiling her beautiful new wedding dress designs…

Rita Colson designs contemporary, bespoke and sustainable bridal couture and evening wear for stylish brides and it’s always such a pleasure to team up with her. Her creations embody elegance and grace, bringing a unique twist to bridal wear that we adore. The event took place at RSA House - a Georgian grandeur house in central London. The unique, listed building has a high-quality, contemporary design making it perfect for weddings, civil ceremonies and a variety of other events.

Held in the Tavern Room, the simply decorated space with its polished wooden floor and plain Adam ceiling was perfect for the fresh black and white theme. We wanted to encapsulate the essence of spring and its purity to tie in with the beautiful wedding dresses. Our designs were fresh and impactful for the backdrop, maintaining the simplicity of Rita’s designs in a fresh white and Pantone green palette.

The fireplace made the biggest statement with large silver ceremony pedestals either side. A few simple pew ends completed the room, embracing minimalism throughout the rest of the decor. All of our selections were indicative of purity, grace, abundance, innocence, spirituality, charm, honour and holiness. We wanted to choose florals that represented lasting beauty, bonds of affection, a happy life, new beginnings and remembrance. These are always the most important values and stories to be told for all of the couples we work with.

Flowers Used

White O’Hara Rose - These delicate, highly fragrant flowers have a slight ivory tinge at the centre with blush-toned petals. They come in the form of a more traditional rose shape with several layers of petals (about 70 petals in fact).

White Lilac - This is an ornamental shrub with pristine white flowers. The clustered flowers display abundant blooms with an intoxicating fragrance and dark green, heart-shaped leaves.

White Hydrangea - Big, rounded flowers and delicate heads are accompanied by wooden stems. Each cluster has lacy, star-shaped flowers, packed closely together in a pom-pom shape.

White Stock - Such a graceful flower, these ruffled blooms form a spike at the top of each stem and give off a sweet scent.

White Spray Rose - These miniature standard roses are petite, beautiful and oh so intricate with short, individual stems.

White Snapdragon - Tall stalks, ruffled edges with a delicate, soft texture.

White Anemone - We just love how these elegant, cup-shaped white flowers with medium to dark green foliage and tall, wiry stems stand out on the pew ends.

White Ranunculus - Layer upon layer of paper thin, silky petals with lime green in the centre of the bloom. They’re mildly scented and on long stems.

White Tulips - Perfectly symmetrical flower buds with a combination of smooth, fringed and ruffled feathers. The coloured centre contrasts perfectly against the petals. Amongst these, some have cultivated star-shaped flowers with long pointed petals that arch outwards which we adore.

Italian Soft Ruscus - One of our absolute favourites; such a classic foliage with shapely, shiny green leaves in narrow tear-shapes from long trailing stems.

Dutch Spirea - This delicate foliage is what you can see with the cascading branches of white or spring flowers within our designs.

It was such a magical event, full of elegance and style - we loved being part of it. If you would like to find out more about how we can help you to create your dream wedding/event through floral design, then why not get in touch today?

Corrigan's Mayfair, Wedding and Events Venue Launch

Today we're bringing you the gorgeous gallery of images from the launch event of Corrigan's Mayfair as a weddings and events venue for which we created the floral designs... 

Opened in 2008, Corrigan's Mayfair is just one of the exclusive restaurants owned by Richard Corrigan - a Michelin star chef who has even had the privilege of cooking for the Queen. The restaurant combines a quintessential British and Irish menu with luxury and home-inspired cooking, making it a must-visit.

We were recently invited to be part of the team to showcase how the private dining room, located in the highly affluent West-End of London, could be transformed into the ideal intimate reception venue for weddings and events. To start with the room was dark and non-bridal so we rose to the challenge of making it appear bigger, brighter and more welcoming for those special occasions to help couples picture spending part of their special day there. We selected a cream, white and pale yellow palette with hints of greenery for floral designs that were sure to stand out and add light and warmth.

First of all we designed an opulent wall with the purpose of displaying other vendors work on floating shelves amongst the blooms. We chose the delicate flower-heads of Hydrangea - big, rounded flower clusters along with the highly fragrant cross-shaped petals of the Stock flower. Stock is the perfect choice for weddings and events, having the hidden meaning of enjoying life and eternal love/beauty - we're obsessed with weaving these messages into our designs! The symbolic Chrysanthemums with their hundreds of tiny flowers brought vibrancy and joy while Avalanche Roses gave an abundance of petals for added texture. Teamed with cup-shaped Tulips, the eye-catching wall truly made a statement in the room.

Secondly we created an on-trend cascading runner which couldn't have gone down better. This has since been one of our most requested designs to recreate and is a joy to make every single time. Again, we used Tulips and Avalanche Roses but switched up our other selections for the impressive table feature. Lilac brought a generous display of blooms while the delicate foliage, Spirea, contributed cascading branches of white flowers. The fine, upright leaves of Nigella added feathery foliage for an element of softness and Thlespi delivered clusters of small white flowers with narrow, arrow-shaped leaves. One of our favourites, Ranunculus, supplied silky petals and Phalenopsis Orchids (another flower representing love, luxury, beauty and strength) presented a graceful yet exotic flower with wide, leathery leaves for an extra touch to the design.

After being on site to tie up the finishing details, the private dining room looked totally different and we were so happy with the final result. The flowers completely revamped the room, bringing colour, texture and a sense of scale making it feel far more celebratory and larger than before.

Succulents and Foliage Wedding Theme

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! If you would like to find out more about how we can help you to create your dream wedding/event through floral design, then why not get in touch today?
