When I first met with Laura and Alan in 2011, I had no idea of the extent of flower designs they both wanted. In a nutshell, the wedding was being planned and created around the colours and style of their flowers. The invitations, the favours, the chairs….everything. I was so excited to hear the news they had chosen me and my team to create their dreams.
Laura & Alan’s love for Paris was their inspiration for all the designs. The amazing, jaw dropping Ian Stuart Bridal Gown, the beautiful Jim Hjelm Bridesmaid dress and the dapper black dinner suits just blended perfectly. Its was our job to ensure their creative and romantic vision was translated through flower design. With the help of mood boards and mock-ups Laura and Alan started to get a real feel for what their gorgeous flower designs will bring to the most important day of their lives.
We worked with over 3000 stems of flowers and only used a small amount of foliage in the pedestal displays which was overtaken by beautiful blousy blooms! A mixture of roses including David Austin ‘Patience’ roses, peony (this was the last wedding we created wedding flowers for as they had come to the end of their season), Hydrangea and Sweet Pea. We provided bridal flowers throughout, ceremony flowers, escort table, reception flowers as well as decorating the ornate fireplaces, window tables, drinks tables and not forgetting the stunning cake created by Peggy Porschen, London. The flower decorations worked beautifully against the surroundings of Wrest Park Mansion, Silsoe and was the ideal venue for Laura & Alan’s romantic Parisienne styled wedding day.
It was such a pleasure to be involved from the beginning of their wedding day plans and we were all close to tears once we finished and placed everything for the Bride & Groom, parents and guests to enjoy.
