Red and White Roses in the Valley

Saturday 28th May, I had the pleasure of arranging the Wedding Flowers for Natalie and Dave. A lovely couple who I met over a year ago.

The Theme was all roses and being Charlton fans it had to be red and white and had to be a recpetion at The Millenium Suite at Charlton FC.

Natalie wanted a romantic look to the flowers but with a modern and funky twist. The roses were kept in a domed fashion and were detailed with looped grass which ran through the whole theme.
Natalie held a hand tied dome of red roses which were caged in looped grass. The structured loops running over the full heads of petals looked amazing and really eye catching.

The Bridesmaids were wearing red and held matching domes in ivory roses, with the stems bound in red ribbon.

The Groom and Groomsmen's buttonholes also had roses and looped grass.

After a Church Ceremony, the party arrived back at "The Valley" the suite was set up with a view across the terraces and created a great backdrop to the room.

The centrepieces looked very WOW! Tall vases with encased grass loops held large dome of red and white roses with a ball of looped grass running over the flowers. Overall creating a dramatic look to the room. The Wedding Team Setting up were Stunned by them and said " they had never seen anything like them before"

The Top Table was dressed with modern cube vases with linear arrangements of red and white roses which ran along the table in alternate colours.

Natalie and Dave sent me a lovey thank you note. Which is so nice after all my hard work.

Hot Pink and Glamourous!

This Friday was the Wedding of Toni and Lee at Sundridge Park Mansion.

The theme was to be hot pink, black and white with lots of Bling and feather trim!

Modern, Bright, Funky and Glamour were words that myself and Toni used when designing her wedding flowers. the Bridesmaids wore black cocktail dresses and held bright pink domes of hot pink gerberas. They were edged with black feathers for ultimate fluff!

Toni held a larger version but I added diamontes to the centres of the flowers, Hers was edged with white feathers and the stems were detailed with a black sash and diamonte buckle.

The Ceremony took place in the Garden room and I dressed the table with glamourous black tanks with domes of more Hot pink Gerberas.

The hallway table was dressed with a glamourous vase of seasonal flowers to welcome the Guests.

On the staircase I swagged black chiffon around the pillars and fastened large displays of hot pink gerneras and black feathers.

Sage Green and Apple Blossom pink

Sunday 1st May was the beautiful wedding of Claire and Mark at All Saints Church followed by a reception at Brandshatch Place Hotel.
Claire had chosen a lovely soft green for her Bridesmaids dresses and wanted to create a soft Spring/Summer feel.

I decided to use a combination of spring flowers and as the weather had been so amazingly warm, I used summer flowers to! Claire's bouquet was made up with blush peonies, sweet avalanche roses, ivory rose buds, white ranuculas, green lisianthus and white lilac.

The overall look created a feminine and soft bouquet which suited Claire perfectly.

The Bridesmaids held smaller versions with put the peonies. Against the dresses, they looked amazing.

Lovely- SS11 in a box!

The buttonholes and corsages were made up in soft coloured roses from the theme.

The ceremony took place at All saints Church in Orpington. It was so pretty inside. There were the most lovely stained glass paneled windows in pastel shades. I simply arranged tied bunches to the pew ends and tied them with chiffon bows.

The sun was shining and it was like mid summers day when I arrived at the Hotel. In the heat I swagged the main staircase with foliage and roses to create a romantic entrance.

In the breakfast room, I had arranged compact domes of flowers from the theme which sat on fluted vases. The look was soft and blousey and gave off lovley perfume in the room.

The top table had a length of tank vases filled with matching flowers from the theme. They were placed on mirror tiles and surrounded by scatter crystals. Very pretty!

Claire had chosen a lovley look for the chair sashes with a two tone colour effect finished with a diamonte buckle.

The cake was gorgeous and had lovley detail of apple blossom spilling around the tiers. Which matched the stationary.

Congratulations Claire and Mark, I'm sure you had an amazing day! x
