A Dreamy Summer Wedding in Regent's Park
Working with Snapdragon London, we used romantic soft pinks and delicate purple flowers for this dreamy summer wedding in Regent’s Park. Pink and white peonies, sweet peas, white hydrangea and purple clematis made up the sumptuous table centres and were accompanied by gold and crystal accents from surrounding tea lights and candelabras. The top table featured a tall birch tree decorated with glass orbs and tea lights growing out of a bed of gorgeous summer flowers. Photographs courtesy of Chris Morgan Photography.
Cornish Seaside meets English Country Garden
Inspired by the Cornish seaside, the blue and grey tones of the coastline were incorporated into stunning floral decorations, which also gave the day a distinct countryside garden feel. For the reception, a mix of flowers in pastel and coral shades were used create a spectacular statement arch at the marquee entrance and gorgeous summer garden flowers also filled white urns that ran along the centre of the tables with tea lights scattered throughout for a magical touch.
The perfect countryside wedding
For this beautiful countryside wedding we wanted the flowers to look completely at home and styled them to look freshly picked from an English country garden. At the entrance to the venue we filled stone urns with magnificent, towering flowers and in the marquee we installed an arch of bright flowers and soaring arrangements climbing to the ceiling. The guests were seated on hay bales over which we placed sheaves of lavender and colourful posies.
Bare Foot Luxury, Antibes
Bare foot luxury with a chic rustic feel was my brief for this beach wedding. Set on the picturesque French island of Île Sainte-Marguerite, off the coast of Antibes, this intimate wedding was stunning with an effortless colour scheme of whites and creams. The ceremony and reception took place on the white sands of a private beach. I made two breathtaking arches which were filled with hydrangeas, peonies, delphiniums, stock and eucalyptus. One arrangement beautifully framed the bride and groom as they said their vows and the other created the perfect entrance for guests as they stepped off the yacht. For the aisle entrance two elegant ‘floating’ flower arrangements in clear urns stood on white pillars either side of the walkway. Hand-painted white chairs lined the aisle; I decorated them with chair ties combining O’Hara roses, guelder roses, hydrangeas, peonies and a sprinkling of eucalyptus. I created a stunning bespoke flower canopy which hung over the top table. Bamboo columns were wrapped in garlands of eucalyptus and white roses and cascades of white delphiniums and peonies hung from the surrounding olive trees. As night fell, rows of silver and crystal storm lanterns sparkled under the stars.
Rustic in Provence
For this wedding in the beautiful Provence, we wanted to keep it elegant and chic whilst taking inspiration from the natural surroundings. We used a mix of raspberry and lilac flowers to create a soft yet striking contrast. For the wedding brunch, bespoke pink gingham bunting flowed across the room filled with pink roses and hydrangeas. Apricot, peach and lemon tones were introduced to compliment the honey tones of the ageing terracotta roof tiles. Sumptuous garlands of peonies and roses were cascaded down poles and the water features were filled with roses. We placed giant fountains of hanging eucalyptus and olive vines throughout the ceiling of the marquee. Olive trees were used for name places and arrangements of apricot roses were displayed down the dining tables. Masses of candles, rustic chairs, bespoke table linen and apricot cashmere pashminas sat perfectly in the evening sunshine as lavender hearts and bunting lead guests around the breathtaking venue.
White Roses and Candles, Santorini
White-washed buildings and perfect blue skies provided the inspiration for this stunning wedding. I used beautiful white roses, vases and crisp white linen and drapes all sourced from the island to create a magical day. Huge white urns filled with white delphiniums stood high against the backdrop of the ocean and terraces were lined with hurricane lamps and tea-lights for a romantic candlelit evening. As the sun set on this incredibly dreamy day, the venue transformed into a twinkling wonderland.
Romantically Hamptons Style, Hampton
On this special occasion I worked alongside renowned designer Andrew Egan of CoolGraySeven to create a fabulously quirky yet utterly romantic day. The fabulous environment was a huge inspiration in our plans for this stunning wedding. Complimenting the beautiful greys of the magnificent house, we white-washed the floors, painted the chairs and created stationery in subtle grey tones. As dusk fell, arrangements of lilac roses were centred on the tables and surrounded by twinkling tea-lights. Hundreds of paper lanterns hung from the sky and created a gorgeous glow over the party whilst a romantic vision of roses floated in the pools.
