When I first met Sophia to talk wedding flowers with her wedding planner, Andri Benson from Always Andri, it was clear from the outset that this wasn’t going to be a quiet little wedding with subtle touches and delicate florals. Sophia has to be my most direct and decisive bride from 2013 – she even managed to convince – if that is the right word – her wedding guests to only wear colours that would complement the wedding theme of orange and purple – amazing but true!! I think her wedding to the wonderful Oskar was one of my faves of the year and will stick in my mind for a long time. Read more

No, you aren’t experiencing déjà vu! Yes, we have blogged this wedding before but have recently received new photos from Dianna and Rowland’s fantastic photographer, Aneta Mak.
This was a truly gorgeous wedding and you can now appreciate it in all its glory via Aneta’s lovely photographs. It was a frantic day, installing at 4am to avoid the closing down of the bridges and road surrounding the Queen’s Jubilee Pageant but we made it and the bride and groom were very pleased Read more here.
Overall I think pink has got to be one of the most favourite flower colours for weddings and for Celia and Chris’ wedding at Addington Palace we used a whole palette of them
As well as a traditional Chinese tea ceremony which took place before the main event, the couple went for a pretty classic English wedding breakfast set up. Read more here.
Part two of our mammoth sun filled weekend last July features a beautiful, elegant and supremely classy wedding at One Whitehall in the heart of Westminster. Carla and David are a gorgeous couple who had very strong ideas about the look they wanted for their wedding day and with the aid of the fabulous photographic skills of Fiona Kelly, I’m now very proud to be able to show you what we created for them.

Early last July saw us on one of our busiest weekends of the summer with events going on in Westminster, the West End and the City! Three very different weddings and three very different venues – Part One is a fabulous ceremony and reception at St Etheldreda’s in Ely Place and the amazing Stationers’ Hall.
Andri Benson of Always Andri Wedding Design introduced me to the bride only a matter of 6 weeks or so before the wedding but such a clear idea did they both have of the look and colour they wanted that it made my life much easier! Pale lilac, soft pink and creamy ivories were the mainstay of the flower palette supported by the silvery grey hues of Eucalyptus and Senecio foliage. Read more in our blog here

I first met Anthony when he came to the Spring open day at Whitehall Place and he was very sure about what he wanted for his wedding – which at that point was over a year away. I took some notes and suggested that we speak that same year. He then came to the next open day, in October, this time with the lovely Kate in tow. She mentioned their wedding date and I quickly was able to flick back in my notebook to our original discussion and could confirm that her husband to be had indeed briefed me correctly and fully on the look and theme for their wedding day … she was impressed but not as impressed as I was that he was so on top of everything!

It’s not really funny at all – it is deadly serious, this Valentine malarkey! You want him – or her for that matter – to come up with the idea of treating you all by themselves, but sometimes a little hint is not a bad thing.
