Glamorous Vintage.

On Friday 24th September, the wedding of Susanne and John took place at Rowhill Grange. The colour scheme was a stunning hue of blush, taupe and toffee. Susanne wanted a garden vintage vibe to her bouquet with rich details of lace and sparkle.

I used a beautiful combination of ecquadorian roses and lizzy. softened with scented eucalyptus and old fashioned vintage fern. Susanne wore a beautiful slim cut satin dress with an overlay of ivory lace, studded with sequins. i matched these rich fabrics by wrapping the stems in lace and studding them with diamontes to.

Susanne and John's special day was the first to take place in the newly refurbished Tuffles Restaurant. The soft tones in the new decor went perfectly with the flowers that I chose to use. Elegant cake stands held compact posies of vintage coloured flowers. As the summer season is fading the mottled tones of the hydrangeas that naturally change with the season looked great.

The ceremony took place in the Orangery and again the tones blended in perfect harmony with the surroundings. Two urn arrangements created a garden romance backdrop to the room and the centrepiece finnished it off.

Congratulations to you both- you looked radiant and absolutly stunning. x

We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful flower arrangements you did for our Wedding at Rowhill Grange on the 24th September 2010, they were absolutely amazing. My bouquet was the best I’ve ever seen, all the flowers and colours were exactly what I had wished for and more. Our guests just could not stop talking about them.
John and I cannot thank you enough.

All our best wishes
Susanne + John Angell

Wedding date at SE10

17th September was the Wedding of Sue and Danny. The venue was the Historic Queens House in Greenwich followed by a reception at the Trafalgar Tavern.

Sue wanted a very simple style bouquet and so I arranged a mass of white hydrangeas, their beauty and simplicity do all the work and when grouped together creates a wonderful effect.

The navy blue colour scheme was brought to life with navy blue berries and silver grey eucalyptus to match the Groom's suit. The stems were bound in midnight blue ribbon and finished with pearls.

The Bridesmaids were wearing midnight blue held mixed hand tied bouquets of ivory roses, white lizzy and germinis (one of Sue's fav flowers) dotte with Sky blue hydrangea and midnight blue berries.

The Groom and his best man had simple and elegant heads of white phalanopsis orchids, fragile....but beautiful!

As I arrived at The Park, the sun was glorious, with a cool little breeze. I just love the September sun. The terrace at the back of the house looked over the park and up the hill to the gorgeous skyline. What a perfect place for canapes and champagne.

Outside, to greet the Bridal party I arranged large displays in urns on white columns, filled with blue delphinium and hydrangeas. The shocking blue against the building looked amazing.
After that, I sped off across the road to the Trafalgar Tavern. Another favourite venue of mine, with the views across the river to the dome.

Sue wanted a bit of a wow factor, to sit with the decor of the room. I went for height...lots of it, which filled the room.
Modern touches included the wrapped stems and "barbed wire" base to the vase. I finished the centrepiece with clusters of hydrangea in silver mirrored votives.

The top table featured a low display of flowers from the theme on globe, filled with the navy wire detail.

The navy theme always seems difficult for flowers, but the shading of blue in the flowers along with the navy details from the stationary, ribbons and chair sashes, pulled together to create a stunning and elegant look.

Purple, plum and Lilac

On 11th September was the wedding of Catrina and Matt. They had chosen a church wedding at Christ Church Chislehurst followed by the recpetion at the Bromley Court Hotel. The theme of the day was Purple, shades from deep cadbury's to powder lilac.

The bridesmaids wore deep purple dresses and the bouquets were a mixture of white roses, Lilac roses, freesia, lisianthus and lime green foilages.

Catrina wanted a romantic but modern look to her flowers so I used a striking combination of the roses and deep purple lizzy. There were hints of sparkle through out the day and so I added diamontes to the roses for a hint of glamour!

The Church was dressed beautifully and traditionally with pedastals and pew ends. The pews were styled with bunched stocks and mint tied with purple chiffon bows. The overall effect was so lovely and smelt amazing. The Priest even told me it was the nicest he had ever seen the Church look which was lovely.

After an emotional ceremony, the guests went onto the hotel. Wow factor was what Catrina wanted as they entered the room. and they got it!

Martini vases filled with light sparkled pearls held huge domes of flowers with amazing coloured mottled hydrangeas that blended all the shades of purple from the day. Oreintal lilies, roses and lizzy added to the mix to create an show stopping centrepiece.

The top table was dressed with a long and low from the theme and finished with a fairy light heart as a backdrop.

The cake was individual cakes all different shades and personalised with the Bride an Groom's initials. I simply dressed around the cake to add to the colours.
Congratulations Catrina and Matt. xx

Vintage Tea party

3rd September was the wedding of Naomi and Christan at the most stunning venue Buxted Park.
Naomi had dreamed of her wedding day as a pretty, vintage summer garden tea party, and the look was amazing. With this theme in mind, it was great to put together summer blousey blooms with lace details and fill birdcages with bundles of prettiness.

Naomi's bouquet had a informal feel made with peonies, and vinatge roses. The fullness was just lovley. I edged the bouquet with soft fern and the lace overlay on the stems added to the look.

I used shabby chic style birdcages and filled them with informal clusters of hydrangeas, roses and lisianthus. The whole display was set of with shimmering white butterflies.

The wedding was styled by Jenny of jennifer sue weddings. She had gathered and styled a great collection of votives, jars, lace runners, pearls and old fashioned pictures. Along with beautiful china tea sets and floral napkins- just lovely!

Some of these photos were taken by the best wedding photographer......Lisa devlin.
