Nestled deep in the countryside of Yorkshire is the striking ancestral home of Carlton Towers, which recently played host to a fabulous, contemporary, white wedding. The chosen flowers for the day were designed to be simplistic and light to stand out against the traditional backdrop of the house.

The couple exchanged their vows in front of  200 guests under a bespoke white rose Chuppah lit by spotlights to create a striking and stand out setting to the ceremony.

Guest then enjoyed a lavish dinner around contemporary centerpieces featuring large vases of submerged orchids with delicate gypsophila filling smaller glass vessels around the table. Hundred’s of candles were used to create the magical ambiance to the evening adding a warmth to the light floral arrangements.

We had the pleasure of doing wedding flowers for Nicole and Adam, our friends at Banana Split, whose big day took place at the luxury Rosewood Hotel. We created the most beautiful chuppah of eucalyptus studded with gorgeous white roses to provide a centre stage for the couple to exchange their vows.

Garlands of white roses and eucalyptus were spiralled down to the base where clusters of candles added a warm glow to the ceremony. Table decorations altered between white rose domes and taller centrepieces of spiralling eucalyptus arrangements, keeping a chic and stylish theme to a delightful day.

Last weekend our events team de-camped to Osea Island for a few days – a pretty island which sits on the Blackwater Estuary– to create flowers for a beautiful wedding. Here, we follow Jess, our Events Manager, as she and the team pack up the back of their vans with flowers and set sail for Osea.

Arriving at Osea

With our vans in convoy we made the journey from Battersea to Osea full of excitement for the weekend ahead. We managed to get across the estuary in our vans during low tide and arrived at the picture-perfect island – you would never believe that you were just a stone’s throw away from London. Osea is an uninhabited private island which is available for holidays, parties and of course, weddings and we fell in love the minute we arrived.

Everywhere you look on Osea there is an instagrammable moment, so we unloaded the flowers into The Shack – our workshop for the next few days – and did a reccy of the island. Once we were back at the shack after our explorations, we set ourselves up for the following day and got started with some essential prep.

Preparation, Preparation

The next day was our main day for creating the big wedding displays, so we set to work on a pretty runner made up of feverfew daisies which was to run along the full length of the aisle and the luscious trees which would be used in the dining room. When it was time to take a break we enjoyed a lovely lunch around the pool and cooled down with a few well-earned cornettos.

The Big Day

This was the big day! Our main tasks were crafting a beautiful flower arch and decorating the pagoda where the couple were tying the knot. The flowers were so gorgeous and fragrant, we used a colourful blend of lilac spray roses,  four seasons white roses, mottled lilac hydrangea, bombastic and more feverfew daisies – the results were really breathtaking and everything smelt amazing.

After the nuptials the guests were led through a secret garden where we had decorated a picturesque swing and a huge urn with yet more beautiful flowers. Arriving at an afternoon tea party which was vintage inspired and very pretty, the room had gorgeous vintage chairs and crockery as well as teapots for decoration filled with pastel-hued flowers dotted around the tables.

Everything at this wedding was bespoke and every element was considered. The dining room was transformed into a lush forest for the evening reception complete with custom-made trees. We draped the ceiling in ivy, ming foliage, asparagus fern and twinkly fairy lights while each of the tables had forest runners with oyster mushrooms, handmade birch decorations, moss table numbers and wild flowers sat under cloches. It looked so magical.

Heading Home

The following day we had to de-rig and were very conscious to salvage as many of the beautiful flowers as possible by creating bouquets for each of the guests to take home with them. Before the tide was low enough for us to make our return journey, we just had time to explore the island a little more, say our goodbyes to the resident donkeys, Salt & Pepper, and even managed a spot of fishing. What a weekend.

Last weekend we created flowers for a beautiful wedding at one of our favourite places in London, the Victoria & Albert Museum.

The mood was romantic and the colour palette was soft and pretty in white, cream and nude with glamorous gold and crystal accents.

The tables were decorated with statement white blossom trees at their centres. Crafted from a natural wooden trunk the blossom branches reached up and over the table creating a lovely canopy effect.  They were accompanied by central stemmed bowls of blousy white peonies, white roses, guelder rose and spiraea as well as clusters of stylish crystal pillar candles and tea lights.

Echoing the blossom on the tables, we also filled a huge stone urn with branches of white blossom which was placed on the central bar and acted as the perfect focal point for the space.

Last weekend was a very busy one for our events team, with not one, but two fabulous weddings to create flowers for.

The first, held at the beautiful Blenheim Palace, was where this amazing tree was on display. Standing tall in the entrance hall, the trunk of the tree had a trail of roses in many varieties working their way down to the floor. The soft fragrance of four seasons, amnesia and spray roses with guelder rose and jasmine was incredible.

The following day, the team made their way to the Dorchester Hotel, to work on equally opulent nuptials, which included statement table centres comprising of 1,250 fragrant white and cream sweet peas. Complemented by beds of flowers running along the tables, perspex candelabras, silver mirror and contemporary crystal accents, it was the epitome of luxury.

Stay tuned to the blog for all the pictures, they’re coming soon!

We are pleased to announce that we are now working with Wickham House as one of their preferred florists. This beautiful Georgian house in Wickham, Newbury, is set within 52 acres of parkland with incredible views of the neighbouring countryside. The house was previously the rectory to St Swithun’s, the historically important church which lies within its grounds, and was decorated in Victorian Gothic style by the rector in the late 19th century.
