"Getting married in a pandemic definitely requires a certain level of perseverance and optimism… there’s something very intimate & special about a 2020 wedding” Bride Victoria Morgan

Victoria Morgan & Andrew Massie met nine years ago working in New York City: Andrew proposed in their favourite holiday destination, Mallorca, in June of last year. The happy couple were planning a sun- filled Mallorcan ceremony this September, but as Victoria puts it ‘the coronavirus had other plans for us!’

This year has been a rollercoaster ride for many couples planning a wedding- each journey is unique and whilst some have postponed indefinitely, others have chosen to tie the knot in small & intimate ceremonies, often very different from their original plans.

Victoria and Andrew's Spanish getaway became a bright & charming celebration for just 19 guests at Chelsea Town Hall, the Ham Yard Hotel, Soho and a private Chelsea dinner. The close-knit group were ferried between their classic London venues in quintessentially London black cabs.

The bride wore a stunning, elegant white gown with gold Aquazurra sandals- the groom the traditional Tartan of his Scottish heritage, as did many of their guests. Victoria wanted her flowers to inject a burst of colour into her London wedding and helpfully sent us a sample of Andrew’s tartan to help theme her bouquet.

We designed a bright bridal bouquet of seasonal summer varieties including peach dahlia, red ruffled vuvuzela roses, sanguisorba, fuschia astrantia and lilac clematis. The fluttering petals of Mashad VIP roses were the star of the bouquet- symbolising everlasting love & fidelity. The floral colours & themes were complemented with a range of buttonholes.

Victoria loved her spectacular bouquet so much that she chose not to throw it into the crowd ‘some of my friends were a bit disappointed!’ but chose instead to enjoy them with Andrew for a few days longer at their Ham Yard Hotel honeymoon suite.

Despite the uncertainty, ultimately the happy couple and their guests enjoyed a fabulous celebration that was filled with beauty, colour, style and of course- love!
