Country wedding at the Manor Barn

I love working with seasonal flowers. So it was such a joy when Kathryn asked for daffodils, tulips, ranunculus and other bulb flowers to use for her and Roberto’s wedding at the beginning of March. The lucky couple got married in a lovely village church in Cambridgeshire, followed by a wonderful reception at a stunning venue – The Manor Barn – a unique old barn just 20mins away from Cambridge.

Kathryn loves colours, so we made a really colourful loose bridal bouquet with a selection of spring flowers. To complement the bridesmaids dark purple dresses we arranged for them to carry bright yellow posy bouquets. For the flower girls we created flower circlets using ranunculus, narcissus and lavender foliage.

To add some colour into the stone built church we tied spring posies in jam jars to the each of the pew ends. At the venue we hung lilac/purple bunting and an innovative seating plan! Instead of a traditional seating plan Kathryn came up with the idea to use a ladder, with the guest table lists marked onto antique juice bottles filled with scented yellow narcissus. For the guest tables we created miniature English gardens – herbs planted in a aged terracotta pots, ceramic birds, daffodils in mossed planters, and a selection of jam jars and miniature bottles with bright spring flowers sprightly popping out of them.

It was such a pleasure to be a part of this beautiful country wedding. The sweet couple gave out Sunflower and Wildflowers seeds for us to take home to remember their special day. So, today was a perfect day to start sowing! Hopefully in a few months we’ll see a results, and remember their gorgeous wedding day!

A big THANK YOU to Lyndsey from Lyndsey Challis Photography for letting us share her beautiful work (and giving us a helping hand at the venue)! 

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.

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.

Sloane in Bloom 2010

All week (25-29 May) Sloane Square was blooming! London’s best florists had an opportunity to show who is the most creative.

This year’s theme was “Alice in Wonderland”. Althought there was a wide array of displays on show, only a few really managed to catch the moment. That was no surprise however. It was a big challenge for any florist. You couldn’t fix anything to the walls that would cause any lasting marks; all flowers had to be fresh (it wasn’t easy to keep them “alive” – considering how hot it was all week); and the most important thing this year – to make a splash spending less cash!!
