A Christmas Wedding at the Old Library in Dulwich College

Flowers by Jennifer Pinder. Christmas wedding at the Dulwich College Old Library in London

Amy and Jimmy were a lovely couple to work for and had a beautiful wedding in the Old Library at Dulwich College, followed by a reception in a big marquee in Amy's dad's garden in Dulwich Village. And what a beautiful garden it is to work in! I was in foliage heaven and sneaked a few bits into the wreath that marked the entrance to the wedding party.

Dulwich College is a wonderful setting for a wedding and is one of the few places in London where you truly feel surrounded by greenery. Dulwich village is also just a short walk away giving your guests lots of options for a pre wedding brunch or drink. It also has amazing sunsets - we moved arrangements after the wedding ceremony at Dulwich College and spied the couple having some of the most beautiful snaps taken at sunset. Amy opted for flowers in traditional Christmas colours and these worked excellently against the dark wood panelling of the Dulwich College Old Library and set a fun seasonal tone to the wedding. Amy also had 'living' table centrepieces - we included hyacinth bulbs in the arrangements so that guests had something to take home to keep the spirit of the wedding going long after departure!

It was great to see some old faces becuase I used to go to school with Amy's brother! I also fell in love with Jimmy's mum - a bit of an aspiring florist herself! Thank you for including me in your day Amy and Jimmy. I must also thank my lovely sister who helped me set up, a pic of her leaving our last job of the year after hanging the final wreath is below! xx
