Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart recently had the pleasure of working with Lamp Productions to bring a touch of Paris to the heart of the city. Transforming One Belgravia into a Parisienne apartment for a two day bridal shoot, the creative forces at Lamp Productions dressed the space beautifully to compliment the stunning bride.

Elegant, romantic and wonderfully feminine – our creative team took inspiration from the stunning setting and use of props, to create opulent arrangements in soft blush tones.Lamp productions 1 lamp productionsLamp productions 3 Lamp Productions 4 Lamp productions 5 Lamp 2 Lamp 1 Lamp 3

W1539_144The question has been asked, you have found the venue and chosen your dream dress, it is now time to fine tune the colour scheme and choose the perfect flowers to suit your day.

This week we caught up with our talented Event Manager Jessica as she offers her advice on how to select your wedding flowers, as well as a few key trends for 2017.

The initial steps a bride should take when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding flowers?

Have a look around, see what interests you on Instagram, get pinning your favourite floral images and most importantly take a look at potential florists website / blog to see what their current style is. This way you will be able to gauge their capabilities and have some basic ideas to work with when you have those initial talks. It’s really great when a client comes in with a concept we can work with, this is when we get creative and develop their ideas into something really special, surpassing clients expectations.

The best wedding venues you have been fortunate enough to work in?

My favourite location has to be Osea island, it was stunning! Situated on the South East coast just 90 minutes away from London, the private Island is four miles of unspoiled landscape, shingle beaches and beauty. Wild at Heart really mirrored the natural setting with the flowers and created something fabulously wild and fresh.

Bridal work trends?

Nikki recently suggested a variation in bouquets for each bridesmaid, for example a different roses – one Secret Garden, one Quicksand and one Amnesia. They all work well together, however, adds a different dimension to photographs.

When it comes to the bridal bouquet, should the dress be taken into consideration?

Yes definitely! Think style, shape and colour. Often wedding gowns have beautiful bone work in them that really accentuate a brides waist , so don’t hide your silhouette behind a huge bouquet, a luxurious rose knot will draw attention to your narrowest part without hiding you away. However, a large dress needs to be balanced out, this stunning loose and wild bouquet looked fantastic against our summer brides flowing dress…

Your words of wisdom when it comes to selecting centerpieces…

Consider your budget, if you don’t have much to spend look into prop hire and focus on accessorising the tables with candles, tealights and glassware. We have an extensive collection of props available to hire or to offer inspiration from our website

To add a dynamic touch to the room, I always suggest to use a mixture of high and low centerpieces. This can be done by using candelabras on a number of tables and perhaps lanterns or tea light on the rest. Creating a dramatic look without being too over the top. _DSC9494

Finishing touches that give a wedding that extra edge?

Guests are always appreciative of the little personal flourishes, the things that are slightly out of the box. People will be bowled over by the center pieces and features but props are often the accessories that complete the setting. At a recent event at One Marylebone, I designed hand blown oil lamps and filled them with cobalt blue paraffin to compliment the arrangements and placements.

However, one of my favourite wedding flourishes was this bespoke chair back we created for a summer wedding. Made out of garden roses, spray roses and delphinium, it added a stunning aesthetic to the wedding and the aroma was out of this world!

How to create a focal point in the room?

There are so many options when it comes to creating different  floral focal points for both the ceremony or the reception. The use of trees in the reception has been a big trend in 2016 and we expect the demand to carry on into Summer ’17.

If your budget is tight enquire if your florist can arrange for an arch or urn to be transported from the church to the reception.

One of my favourite Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart features, was the elaborate 40 m squared rose ceiling created for a wedding in Baku.  Chris ODonovan-3187Baku 8GSPK&J002

Key SS/17 wedding flower trends?

We’re starting to see a lot less formulaic, regimented approach to wedding flowers, there are so many stunning flowers around during the wedding season, its a shame to stick to just cream roses for example. This year look out for gorgeous different sized flowers and foliage to create texture. Think, peonies, sweet peas and ferns…sherry-146

Here at Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart, we pride ourselves on creating beautiful events from the first mood board down to the last flower. For this rustic chic September wedding we worked with a colour scheme of soft pastel tones to compliment the vintage fairground inspired style the couple wanted to create.

We loved the how the bunting, vintage funfair rides and the backdrops inside the barn set the theme for this fabulously whimsical wedding reception. For the floral décor, collections of vintage pewter and silver, in the form of tea pots, tankards, goblets and cups were filled with beautiful and wild arrangements of white, cream and pale pink garden roses, lilac and white scabiosa and lilac clematis as well as soft coloured wild flowers. Mixed within these arrangements were crystal storm lanterns of mixed heights and styles, and crystal and silver tea light holders which gave the tables a colourful and eclectic look.
