Last October we arranged wedding flowers for a beautiful couple – Gina and Chris. They chose The Brewery as their wedding venue – a stunning place with history in every corner. Brick walls, beams and high timber ceilings make this venue such a unique place in the heart of London. As the ceilings are so high in The Brewery we created tall table arrangements with twisted twigs and pussy willow to make an impact in such a big space. Gina wanted to create a romantic woodland feel so we added hanging t-lights to the table centerpieces. I love to use seasonal flowers in an arrangements and I was so pleased that Gina chose an orange and cream colour scheme – perfect for an Autumn wedding.
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.
I had been planning on doing this exciting photo shoot in the middle of the forest for such a long time! I knew exactly what I wanted it to look like, I just needed to find a photographer who would bring it to life… and thankfully I did. Her name is Andrea Whelan – an amazingly talented girl with a big passion for photography www.andreawhelan.com Her speciality is family shoots, but she was more than up for the challenge, and made my dream idea come true.
We arranged to meet up early Saturday morning. We were well prepared with our props (special thanks to Emma Chapman for letting us to use your beautiful tableware www.rubyblu.co.uk). I ended up running around with flowers, vases and plates, Andrea navigating up, down and around trees, apple crates and even my shoulders – just to take this perfect shot. Now I invite you , to our secret dinner in the woodlands…
