Christmas Wedding

Welcome to our last blog for 2008. We said last week that this would be a Christmas one; and that was certainly the theme for this wedding, which took place at the walled garden at Cowdray in West Sussex last Saturday. Pine, holly, larch and fragrant myrtle were the order of the day for this festive celebration. Tables were dressed with rings of rich seasonal foliages and berries which also made beautiful gifts for guests afterwards.
Windowsills were dressed with pine, holly and candles for winter warmth and a white chocolate helter skelter cake added that touch of snow! We wish you all a very happy and peaceful Christmas and look forward to sharing more of our work with you in the New Year.

Gorgeous things come in little packages!!

Santa arrived early at South Park Studios today when our friend Amanda Sherlock of Giles Sherlock Event Design came bearing gifts in the form of these gorgeous little boxes of edible cookie decorations made by Peggy Porschen. She had even gone to the trouble of having them personalised with our names. Now that's what we call attention to detail!!

Chic City Wedding

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!
