Chelsea Gold !

We are so thrilled for our good friend Jane Brockbank, who along with Angus Thompson has won a Gold medal at The Chelsea Flower Show this year. Their beautiful garden 'Nature Ascending' is a very deserved winner and a great inspiration to us mere florists!! Victoria studied Garden Design with Jane way back in 1999 and whilst she struggled with her planting plans, Jane was always the one to watch. We are very proud of her and send her all our best wishes.

Mayfair in May

On a perfect May morning, our destination was the beautiful Grosvenor Chapel in Mayfair for the wedding of Hannah and Luke. Hannah had chosen a soft vintage palette of palest pink and cream with touches of sage green for this smart town wedding. Following the ceremony, the entire wedding party strolled the short distance to Dartmouth House for the wedding reception which was held in the Long Drawing Room of this grand London mansion.A lavish urn arrangement at the top of the magnificent staircase was filled with a mass of scented early summer blooms including lilies, roses, stocks and delicate soloman's seal. This set the tone for the table decorations of alternating high and low arrangements. We returned at midnight to find the bride and groom, who were the last to leave, walking hand in hand into the distance. We think they had a good time!!
