Pastel Flowers for an Intimate Wedding at the Langham

 

Rob and Indri do the legal bit at the Langham Hotel in London...

It was a huge honour to do the flowers for two friends from my Oxford days (uni friends please note that I also want a Pembroke wedding actually on location one day peeps). The pair were both totally relaxed and just wanted something a bit special for their family who couldn't make it to the big do in Indonesia. Inge opted for pastel colours and I used eucalyptus to compliment this palette. We kept everything fresh and light and used colours that worked with the pinks and lilacs in the beautiful Langham. It was also a lovely surprise to bump into the hugely talented Asma and chat as she set up the gorgeous cake. Congratulations Indri and Rob - love to both of you! xx 

 

Kate and Toby at Dartmouth House

It was a huge honour to be a part of Kate and Toby's day - especially because Kate booked me pretty much as soon as she got engaged when my floristry business was relatively new. Her engagement ring set the tone for the day - the purchase surely must have been a stressful job for Toby when beautiful Kate has a background in antiques and now works at the most exquisite interiors company. This is a girl with exceptional taste!  Of course he pulled it out of the bag with a unique diamond and sapphire antique piece.

The wedding was elegant and timeless. Dartmouth House sits in the heart of Mayfair in London and is filled to the brim with sleek marble and period features. The venue is a florist's dream to work in because it has a variety of very different rooms with lots of different colours and textures to set off the flowers. The Churchill Room (where ceremonies are usually held) is incredibly grand with dark wood panelling and this contrasts nicely with the duck egg blue and soft light in the Long Drawing Room (used for dining). The grand staircase with marble in the centre of the venue really takes your breath away as guests first enter and Kate and Toby used this marvellous focal point for their speeches. 

Working with Kate was lovely, chatting over a glass of wine it quickly became clear that she was happy for me to do my own thing... Except for one feature of the wedding - a lily of the valley bridal bouquet! Many a florist has had sleepless nights over lily of the valley (it has a tendency to flop) and I am no exception. I am so pleased it all worked out and Kate was able to see her lily of the valley dreams come true!

For the rest of the flowers we took inspiration from the colours in the Long Drawing Room and went for white with touches of blue. We kept things loose and natural looking and created a couple of wild mantel runners to give the venue a feeling of being filled with flowers. 

I must mention that my florist friend Cat freelanced for me and I really couldn't have coped without her!

Hannah and Evan's Wedding at the Peckham Asylum London

 

I was thrilled when my good friend put me in touch with Hannah and Evan to discuss their London wedding at the Asylum in Peckham. The Asylum is a breathtaking venue with crumbling walls and a beautifully romantic altar filled with candles. All of these beautiful pictures are by the lovely Frances Sales and you can see more on Rock My Wedding! xx
