Sometimes a wedding can be so beautiful that even we feel really moved by it. This happened almost a year ago, when we provided flowers for a wonderful couple, Isobelle and Steve, who won us in a competition! The setting was the exquisite Fawsley Hall in Northamptonshire and their chosen colours were rich wine reds and clarets, perfect for a bitterly cold day in February. Isobelle particularly loved amaryllis and hellebores, and her wish was our command! The bride’s trailing bouquet complemented her beautiful silk sash and was a glorious combination of scented jasmine trails, roses ,tulips and hellebores.
The titian haired bridesmaids wore beautiful long, soft caramel satin dresses and carried posies of hellebores and scented rosemary, finished with organza ribbon.
As couples go, its hard to beat clients like Isobelle and Steve, who truly deserved a setting as lovely as Fawsley Hall.
The wedding breakfast took place in the beautifully restored Knightley Court, the former 18th century stable block which has been exquisitely furnished. In this gracious setting, guests entered the hall which we had decorated with moss lined vases of velvety red amaryllis surrounded by flickering tealights. Tables for the reception were dressed with alternating high and low arrangements of roses, tulips and rich winter foliages to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
We are deeply grateful to Mason Photography for bringing our work to life in such a glorious fashion. When we saw these photographs for the first time, we felt genuinely emotional. It truly makes all the hard work worth while.

As so many couples choose to marry and celebrate their weddings in the same venue; it was a real treat for us to supply the flowers for both church and reception last week, at the wedding of Stephanie and Richard. The marriage took place at Corpus Christi church in Covent Garden, a church so discreet on the outside that you could easily walk past without noticing this hidden gem, tucked just off the Strand. For this winter ceremony we decorated the church with seasonal flowers, foliages and berries, warmed with candlelight and festive wreaths which lined the aisle.
Following the service, the guests made their way to the ultra chic Haymarket Hotel for the evening celebration, which was co-ordinated by wedding planner Zoe Lingard The wedding breakfast was held in the hotel’s stunning Shooting Gallery, where the tables were dressed with candelabra surrounded by stylised rings of pure white lisianthus for a modern twist on a perennial favouite.
Next week it’s a Christmas one!
