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.
Weddings at this elegant venue can be held in the barn, church, walled garden or the marquee site (just in front of the house), offering plenty of places to find the ideal spot for your big day. Whether you choose to hold your nuptials in the barn or the church and host drinks in the walled garden or in the marquee, every inch of this venue is picture perfect. We can’t wait to work on some beautiful weddings here.

We had the pleasure of doing wedding flowers for Nicole and Adam, our friends at Banana Split, whose big day took place at the Rosewood Hotel last weekend. 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.

Our first wedding of 2016 was at the stunning One Mayfair with Sarah Gorlov Events. For the ceremony, the aisle was lined with gold and clear lanterns and glass votives hung from trees, creating a magical candlelit pathway for the bride.
For the reception, table centres were filled with a gorgeous mix of Earl Grey roses, Majolica spray roses, white anemones and white lilac. Candle sticks and tea lights surrounded the flowers adding a warm candle glow to the table.

We adore a winter wedding and this beautiful ceremony and reception in Scotland was no exception. We provided some gorgeous arrangements of pine and holly in copper urns to welcome guests at the entrance of the church, and inside, abundant arrangements of pink roses and blooms adorned the altar and pew ends.
The reception was held inside a candlelit marquee, where clusters of gold beakers with roses in shades of soft pink and cream-coloured blooms sat between crystal lanterns and gold candlesticks, creating a warm and romantic feel.

Last weekend, we were delighted to be working with luxury wedding and event planner Bruce Russell to create this elegant white winter wedding at the Victoria & Albert museum.
As guests arrived at the reception, clear glass storm lanterns filled with candles lit the path. Inside, we adorned the two long tables with arrangements of white roses and lilies to create an elegant and contemporary feel. Large urn arrangements were also filled with white roses, lilies, hydrangea and Phalaenopsis orchids.

Rich reds, burnt oranges and pretty pinks made up the most stunning colour scheme at this beautiful autumnal wedding at the Mandarin Hotel last weekend.
Brass gold urns filled with merlot hydrangea, rich red and two tone dahlias, burnt orange roses, cream blooms and deep red foliage stood in the entrance whilst low glass stemmed bowls filled with the same autumnal mix of flowers made up the centrepieces. Clusters of mercury tea lights added a warm glow to the occasion.

We were lucky enough to work with Kit and Caboodle on this extravagant wedding in Baku, Azerbaijan. Using a floral palette of pinks and purples with wild and trailing garden foliage and berries, we were able to create a life-size enchanted forest, which wouldn’t be complete without its own selfie flower wall of course!

Whilst many brides insist on summer weddings for their delicate, pretty flowers and gorgeous colour schemes, each year we are seeing more and more brides opting for winter weddings which can be just as stunning. Here are our tips on how you can create a perfect winter wedding:
• If you’re set on creating your own winter wonderland on your wedding day, stick to cooler tones which work well with ivory roses, white hellebores and white anemones.
• Soft dewy colours such as lilacs and dirty pinks can also be added to incorporate some colour into your arrangements.
• Silver and grey foliage’s such as eucalyptus and senecio add a slightly frosted effect to your floral wedding décor.
• Anemones, tulips and ranunculi in deep rich reds, burgundy’s and purples along with golden accents can look beautiful as part of a warmer colour palette.
• Masses of candles and storm lanterns lined with petals are perfect for creating a romantic lighting and warmth in those cooler winter months.
• Winter also means Christmas, so if your big day is inspired by the festive season, why not make use of seasonal foliage such as hypericum berries or add a touch of holly, pine or mistletoe for a beautifully festive finish.
• We love the idea of glitter dipped roses to add sparkle to your big day!
