Everything’s coming up roses …

As I’m sure you are well aware, it is now exactly two weeks until V day – Valentine’s Day that is – and it is time to get ready, make plans, book tables, organise time off and decide how you are treating your loved one this year

Of course, it is Leap Year… which means guys, you may just get lucky! So you don’t want to be the one who hasn’t prepared a little something to give the love of your life

Home House wedding

Back in November we had the pleasure to work at the wonderful Home House in central London, with Katrina Otter, for such a lovely lovely couple

Linda was one of those delightful brides with a strong vision of what she wanted but once convinced that we ‘got’ the look… she was very happy to trust us to fulfil the brief, which was ‘lush, pink, candles, scent, and more pink’!

See what you think, but I’m pretty sure we ticked those boxes!

As you can see, PINK was the order for the day and it featured everywhere! From the lush ceremony flowers to the slightly wild bouquet through to the sparkly table centres we brought in every shade of pink we could find … I was especially pleased with the ombré flowers around the copper wire lights for each table. The mix of gold and clear vases set them off really well

We used white O’Hara, All for Love, Cherryo, Sweet Avalanche, Bombastic, Art Deco, Kiera and Deep Purple Roses together with hot pink and mid pink Ranunculas, blush Anemones, pink Hydrangea and a mass of Eucalyptus and Mimosa foliage

We found Home House to be one of the most welcoming venues in central London and the suppliers we worked alongside were also amazing … witness this stunning petal design cake from The Abigail Bloom Cake Company

This wedding was a perfect example of why couples should trust wedding planners to bring their wedding vision to life and keep the wedding date itself moving along smoothly and seamlessly towards a fantastic end x
