Elegant wedding at “Botleys Mansion”

Fran and Jamie’s wedding swept us over to a beautiful venue in Surrey – “Botleys Mansion” – a grand 18th Century Palladian country mansion surrounded by extensive and beautiful parkland grounds.

Fran had a clear vision of which flowers she likes, and which ones would suit the venue perfectly. She chose white and pink dainty flowers to create an elegant look. We used a selection of roses, ranunculus, freesia, eustoma and spray roses with neat foliages like dill, brunia, eucalyptus and trailing jasmine.

Besides bridal flowers and table centerpieces we decorated the seating plan, hat hanger (brilliant idea to keep your big hats and fascinator) and the gorgeous cake in flowers.

Thank you to Wendy Aldiss Photography for capturing our work.

 

Secret forest at The Brewery

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.

Gina and Chris had a real dream teem to organise their big day – The Perrys Wedding Company – The Wedding Lounge – Photography by Adam We created a short video to give you a better idea how everything was set up on a day.

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 :)”

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.

Sunflower Sunshine

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.

Big Thank You to Lina and Tom Photography for letting us share their beautiful work.

“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!”

Romantic Wedding

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.

Thank you Peter from PeterLane Photography for beautiful pictures and Luxury Wedding planner Sophie from SJK Weddings for bringing all of us together

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.
