Isabel&Frank’s Big Day at The Chiswick House

While summer is treating us with the best that Nature can offer – plentiful greens, wild grasses and flowers of all the colors in the rainbow we visit memory lane and one of the weddings we did last summer… nostalgic with a touch of vintage feel, yet very elegant classic whites and dusty pinks with silver foliage, strings of pearl and candle lights – it’s a wedding of childhood dreams.

Our wonderful couple Isabel and Frank couldn’t have chosen a better venue for their dreamy wedding – The Chiswick House and Gardens. This Palladian villa was inspired by ancient Roman architecture and built in the seventeenth century together with breathtaking gardens which are considered to be one of the earliest examples of an English landscaped garden. Stunning garden views together with our flower arrangements reminiscent of days gone by, carried everyone away with memories of the first love, romantic long walks and dreams about The One.

Once again we witnessed that combination of an amazing venue together with a brilliant team of wedding planners – Just as Planned can make any wedding vision come true. It was our pleasure to work with Mati – such a charismatic, lovely and talented young lady who knows everything there is to know about planning your special day. And of course, when your dream needs to be captured by a professional photographer – Photography by Abi is just what you need. Dream on!

2014 done and dusted

Happy New Year to all our flower lovers! It’s been an amazing year and we had so much fun creating such wonderful and unique flower arrangements! We had the pleasure of working at some of the most beautiful venues in England this year too – The Langham Hotel, St. Paul’s Cathedral, The Brewery, Hatfield House, Hanbury Manor, The Mayfair Hotel, The Dorchester and many more.

Thank you so much to all our 2014 couples for letting us to be a part of their big day. We enjoyed every bit of it!

Have a little look at some of our work from last year

 

 

 

 

 

Greek wedding with Asian spice at The Langham Hotel

It was such a pleasure to create flowers for Vasoula and Imran that it’s a shame they’ll be getting married just once.

Vasoula was the most relaxed bride I ever met. One meeting, a few emails, and result!

Vasoula wanted to have romantic wedding flowers to match the Grand Ballroom at the The Langham hotel. She chose white and blush coloured flowers with a selection of silvery foliage. We made two designs: tall vases with a loose flower ball on a top and low arrangements on glass stands. We used blush talea and avalanche roses, dahlia and white hydrangea – stunning ingredients!

For the top table we arranged compact flower posies with a selection of t-lights and parfumerie bottles in between, in order to create a romantic wedding feel.

After the wedding the lucky guests got to take flowers home!

It was always a pleasure to work with a great wedding planning team Perrys (they always make sure we have enough coffee!) and great Greek wedding photographers team Nek Vardikos Photography Read their blog and see the wedding through the photographers lens.

Thank you for a lovely testimonial:

“Migle of Your London Florist was our florist for our wedding in September 2014. We met some other florists, but Migle was, by far, our favourite! Migle is so down to earth and took the time to listen and to understand what we were seeking for our wedding. Migle and her team created some fabulous arrangements for our wedding, which were simply spectacular! We received such positive feedback from our guests and they were thrilled to be able to take the flowers home with them! Migle’s creativity is classic and she and her team created such romantic scenes, not only with the stunning floral arrangements, but also with the use of beautiful glass perfumes and candles, offering great opulence! We can’t wait to see her and her work again :)”

French Style Wedding

Summer is over and our wedding season is coming to a close. It has been an amazing year, and we had the pleasure to meet plenty of lovely couples. One of them was Gaby and Mark. Their big day was held at the stunning venue The Longstowe Hall – 10 miles from Cambridge.

Gaby had lots of great deco ideas. For example – she collected lots of bottles and sprayed them in white. We arranged them in groups around the drinks reception with cream, pink and burgundy flowers. I love a bit of Wedding DIY!

Thank you so much to Lizzie and Rhoddy from Elizabeth Lois Photography for shearing their beautiful wedding pics with us.

 

It’s all about the details

Just by glancing at these stunning pictures of Jolita’s and Andy’s wedding at Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel you get a real sense of this year’s trends: cream & blush colour, lace & pearls, and most importantly – attention to detail! A small silver heart attached to a bridal bouquet with pictures of people you wish were there; buttonholes wrapped in satin ribbon to match the bridal flowers; top table arrangements surrounded with perfume bottles, t-lights and pearls. Small details are what make your arrangements unique.

Special thank you to: Perrys The Wedding Company for arranging such a beautiful day; The Wedding Lounge – adding a special deco touch; and Photography by Adam for capturing every detail.

Dream Wedding at The Grand Connaught Rooms

Happy 1st Anniversary Natasha and Antony!

Last year 6th of July we arranged flowers for a lovely couple Antony and Natasha. They got married in a stunning venue – The Grand Connaught Rooms. As it’s a big and impressive venue we made tall flower compositions with summer flowers like peonies, hydrangeas and roses.

It was such a pleasure to work with Perry’s The Wedding Company  and Everything’s Covered – everyone did their best to create a special and unforgettable day for this beautiful couple.

Mr & Mrs Cunningham

Last October I had the pleasure of arranging flowers for a very lovely couple – Terri and Tim.

Terri liked the woodland theme. It was perfect for an autumn wedding. We suggested going for two designs on the guest tables: tall and small arrangements.

For the tall arrangements we used vases covered in moss and trailing ivy, with loose flower arrangements on top. For the low ones – we made flowers in an antique urn surrounded with “Mind your own business” plants, moss pots with hydrangeas, wooden candle holders and deco birds.

I love adding extra decorations – it has the impact of making the arrangement unique.

 

Floristry DIY

Sorry it’s been a long time since our last post. We’re crazy busy with arranging weddings and meeting new brides.

Wedding floristry it’s not only making beautiful arrangements – it’s about understanding couples and making their dreams come true!

Next month we’re supplying wedding flowers to a lovely bride in Cardiff. To make her table arrangements more romantic we’re decorating all of her candle holders. So I would love to share it with you.

 

For this job you’ll need glass candle holders – any shape, glue gun, scissors and selection of ribbons and brooches.  Be creative mix and mach different shape and texture ribbons and finish it with a brooch.

Good luck!

Country Pub Wedding

It all starts when he gets down on one knee and asks that all so important question . . .Will you marry me. . .?

I love the country themed flowers they are so natural. The materials are placed in glass jam jars and wrapped with a mix of lace and satin ribbon.  The natural looking arrangements and environment, gives a loving theme to this wedding. Let’s all remember we can have our weddings in churches, mansions, hotels, halls, pubs, tents or even your backyard, just remember dreams are there to become true . . .

I had a pleasure to make country style arrangement for a lovely bride – Rebecca. She had her special day at The Wilmington Arms pub in Islington. I loved every bit  of her arrangements – specially her bouquet of amnesia roses, hydrangea, sweet pea and purple larkspur.
