Classic White and Green - Always a Dream.

Following straight on from our previous cherry blossom extravaganza, we were soon off to The Walled Garden, in the ruins of Cowdray Park in West Sussex for the wedding of Gemma and Ben. Using a classic palette of white and green, this lovely design reflected the bride's love of elegant informality for the day. White roses, snapdragons, sweet peas and ivy dressed wrought iron candle stands, candelabra and chair backs for the ceremony and reception in the Castle Room.

Bunches of snapdragons made pretty chair decorations for the ceremony.

The rustic candelabra on the tables suited the neutral decor of the Castle Room perfectly for the intimate recpetion and reflected the wonderful garden for which this lovely venue is known.

Vintage Spring Wedding

Every year we want to do a wedding with masses of double pink cherry blossom. Some years, it's too cold or too warm and we're either too early or too late! A couple of weeks ago however, we were spot on when we supplied the flowers for the wedding of Anna and Russ at Fulham Palace in West london.

Soft pink roses, muscari, florets of guelder and stocks made very pretty buttonholes.

The theme was "Vintage Tea Party" and cherry blossom was a must have! With some of our favourite spring and early summer flowers also being used including, lily of the valley, sweet peas, muscari, freesias, foxgloves, stocks, delphiniums and guelder, the result looked good enough to eat!
For the afternoon reception we created a different look for each table, using mis-matched vases, glassware and vintage cups and saucers. Childhood memories of our grandmothers' crockery and those little pressed glass vases from dressing table sets came flooding back.

With so many flowers in the room, we thought it all looked perfect but, as you can see the front of the palace is covered with wisteria, which was the icing on the cake.....oh, and there was plenty of that too!
