somerset-john-wedding-303Winter isn’t always a time associated with weddings or beautiful flowers but there are endless options when choosing the right floral design for your day, with winter flowers often creating some of the most striking and intimate of ceremonies.

For a sophisticated winter wedding we tend avoid the traditional Christmas colour palette of  mixed of whites, greens and reds. Often opting for deep burgundies, soft pinks or creams. When selecting the colour scheme for your arrangements don’t be afraid to choose a flower that perhaps doesn’t emanate Christmas or winter but is in season, this will help to get the most out of your flower. The market is a mass of anemones, tulips, ranuculus and luxurious roses during the winter months, all of which are very versatile and will lend themselves to wedding arrangements perfectly. somerset-john-wedding-133somerset-john-wedding-134For this December wedding, in the Scottish highlands, we designed the arrangements using very soft blush tones with hints of sage foliage, often a palette associated with early spring. However, to give an eccentric nod to the festive period we accessorised the arrangements and table settings with tasteful pheasant feathers, gold pine cones and luxury silk ribbon. We added warmth and sophistication to the evening reception using opulent crystal hurricane vases, detailed candelabras and a selection of gold vessels were used to display the blush rose center pieces.

gspkj007This week we are reminiscing on a spectacular September wedding with GSP Events in the Orangery at Kensington Palace. A mix of cream and blush flowers were used throughout to compliment the light venue and create what was to be an incredibly elegant day. gspkj002 The venue for the ceremony was dressed in a large white urn and a striking floral arch to frame the couple as they completed their nuptials.  A combination of hydrangea, quick sand and four seasons roses were used in both the statement pieces and highlighted beautifully with seasonal foliage and scented eucalyptus. gspkj005gspkj092gspkj257   gspkj262gspkj256

We recently dressed both the church and reception for an elegant wedding in Cambridge. Using a simple colour pallet of  white and cream mixed with green, Wild at Heart created a beautifully simple look for the ecstatic bride and groom.

The entrance to the church was transformed with a bespoke arch created using an abundance of fresh flower, such as; lilly of the valley, eucalyptus, majolica, spray and sweet scented O’Hara roses. The striking arch that encircled the doorway acted as the perfect photo setting for both the guests and the newly wedded couple after they completed their nuptials.

As guests entered the vast hall that played host to the evenings events they we struck by the calming aroma of the lavender and rosemary which was incorporated into each arrangement. Varying sized bud vases decorated the tables with large nordic fern arrangements standing tall above guests as they enjoyed the evening. Mirroring the style of the ceremony the reception was set simply yet beautifully with crisp white table linen accented with simple crystal tea lights and candelabras.

Wild at Heart recently had the pleasure of dressing the Hintze Hall at the Natural History Museum for a truly opulent wedding reception. The lavish evening dinner was planned  by creative events company Banana Split and followed a romantic ceremony held at the Dorchester, London. The couple made a grand entrance down the stone staircase into the famous hall which was adorned with flowers in Wild at Hearts iconic style.

The theme for the evening reception was modern opulence achieved by dressing the tables with tall centre pieces containing the perfect mix of hydrangea, sweet scented garden roses, sweet avalanche, trailing amaranthis and phalaenopsis orchids. The centre pieces were accented with hanging tea lights and crystals which mirrored the opulence of the tables below.

Conflicting to the world famous dinosaur skeleton in the center of the hall we created a magnificent cherry blossom tree to soften the venue and add to the un-doubtable romance of the night.

Lamp productions recently invited Wild at Heart to create the flowers for a one of a kind bridal shoot. Taking place across various historical locations within the Cotswold’s, the three day shoot was captured perfectly on film by talented photographer Hilary Chan.

Taking inspiration from the beautiful settings of the shoot, the team hand selected a bounty of the freshest seasonal flowers including; secret garden roses, delphinium, ivy and volumes of wildflower. The chosen palette for the three shoots was a combination of pastel tones, white and light grey, which created a magnificently natural and feminine look to the 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.04510447As 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.

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.


Stay tuned to the blog, we have another post coming soon with more beautiful pictures from this lovely wedding.
