The Scabiosa or ‘pincushion’ flower, as named by the Victorians, makes a lovely feminine addition to bouquets and arrangements. Available in an array of whites, pastels and butterfly blues, this late-summer favourite is in its peak from July until October. Known for their long slender stem and the papery softness of their petals they work extremely well with larger robust flowers, such as, garden roses or dahlias. Adding another dimension of texture to soften an arrangement, they work perfectly in Bridal Bouquets.
Our new Summer Skies bouquet is the perfect mix of soft blue and purple Scabiosa, vibrant blues and dusky roses, available here

Wild at Heart recently had the pleasure of dressing the penthouse suite of the Edition Hotel, London, for the launch of the new H&M Home collection.
Stylish and contemporary, the simple use of a variety of ferns complimented the new range of interiors. The foliage was displayed throughout the suite in an eclectic mix of vases and vessels, all available from the collection. Adding to the Scandinavian feel of the event the ever-green plants created a contrast against the deep wood of the suite and the sharp, clean angles of the home-wares.
Following the showcase press were invited down for a dinner, the table was dressed again in H&M interiors, completed with a full Wild at Heart fern runner.

The unique building that is home to the first Nikki Tibble’s Wild at Heart shop was commissioned by the residents of Westbourne Grove back in 1993. Now one of the most well-known architectural land-marks in Notting Hill, the ‘Turquoise Island’ store, created by Piers Gough is renowned for its sharp angles, bright walls and ultimately the paradox of the dual usage of the building… a public toilets and striking florist.
After receiving a letter though the door of her small Southwark studio, inviting London based florists for an interview of tenancy for the Island, Nikki sent a beautiful arrangement to the address of the Councils office and was asked for an interview. At the interview Nikki was given the keys right there and then to what would be her first shop, the ‘Turquoise Island’. The shop, which has now achieved listed status, was really the start of Wild at Heart and despite having, the Flagship Pimlico shop and Liberty concession, the Island will always hold a special place for Nikki.

Walk into New Covent Garden Flower Market or down Columbia Road and you will see the most spectacular artichoke bulbs and striking pink miniature pineapples, however, they are not being sold for consumption… The latest floral trends have seen various food items incorporated into the most fabulous bouquets and centerpieces, adding a quirky touch to weddings and events.
This week we have been celebrating berries. The use of young raspberries and blackberries in arrangements adds a wild essence to the arrangement, reminiscent of foraging in hedgerows as a child or visiting PYO fields with our grandparents, we are loving using this little element to add different dimension to our arrangements.

This week we have been reminiscing about one of our favourite weddings of last year… ‘A Winter Wedding at One Mayfair’. The spectacular wedding designed by celebrity event planner, Sarah Gorlov, was created with such an innovative outlook and attention to detail, resulting in a truly unforgettable union for bride and groom.
The unique venue that played host to the ambient ceremony and reception was the grade 1 listed former St. Marks church, Mayfair. As one of the largest event venues in Mayfair, the space boasts unparalleled opulence and grandeur and is renowned for being one of the most prestigious wedding spaces in London.
The main vision for the wedding ceremony was to create shadowing and warmth in the vast space by illuminating the aisle with glass hurricane lanterns and hundreds of tea lights. The perfect setting for the magical ceremony that ensued.As the ceremony drew to an end guests were invited to enjoy drinks on the mezzanine over looking the great hall to absorb the full effect of the venue, whilst awaiting the hall to be re-dressed for the evening’s reception.
A lavish dinner was served on tables dressed in crisp white table cloths with fresh white and green centerpiece’s all accented with crystal, tall candle sticks and gold rimmed tea lights.
A mix of low and tall centerpieces were used, all containing a perfect mix of seasonal anemone, eucalyptus, white violet and sweet scented white roses. The striking assortment of light center pieces were perfectly off-set by the dark back drop of the hall, adding to the rapture of the enchanting winter wedding.
