Back in May we did wedding flowers for a lovely couple Ellie and Rich.
Ellie loves sunflowers! She wanted to have them everywhere – buttonhole, bouquets and table arrangements. It looked perfect with blue bridesmaids dresses. For Ellie we made posy bouquet with petite white flowers like ranunculus, sweet peas, spray roses and scented freesia. Groomsmen wore sunflower buttonholes and Rich matched the bride’s bouquet – freesia and spray rose buttonhole.
After puzzling out how to pin the buttonholes, the boys headed to St Paul’s Cathedral – the most stunning place to exchange your vows.
At the venue – The Stationers’ Hall – we made yellow and purple flower circles with hurricane candle holders inside. The perfect centrepieces if you are looking for a low arrangement.
“It has been a real pleasure working with you and thank you for your patience in explaining some quite basic points to this couple of wedding-novices! You really took the time to listen to what we want and helped us to hone our thinking, which meant we got the perfect flowers for us. The arrangements were gorgeous – the sunflowers in particular were stunning and I loved that you were able to incorporate this relatively informal flower into the gorgeous pedestals in arrangements worthy of quite a grand venue! I wish you’d been there to hear the gasps when we handed out the flowers to the mothers – the whole room was impressed! Please pass our thanks on to the rest of your team as well. We met a few florists in the run up to the wedding, but you were the one we “clicked” with and I’m so glad that we went with you. We will definitely be recommending you to others and of course using the shop whenever we need flowers for other occasions too!”
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.
Looking at Victoria and Mike’s wedding pictures you can see how important every detail is in creating a perfect day. Table cloths (from Gilded Linens), glasses, candle holders and many more accessories added such a special touch.
The ladies from “Your London Florist” wedding team traveled to Cardiff and spent three days arranging fairy tale flowers. Candelabras, framed flower table plan, top table flower waterfalls, bridal bouquets and more – everything was created for this special day.
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.
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.
