Helen and Mark's flower story

Helen and Mark had a vision for their wedding and it was glorious.  It was to be romantic, stylish and flowers had to play a big part.  Just my kind of brief!

Early on we decided that flowering up the reception was going to be our main focus.  The reception venue at Brighton College was huge and so the flowers had to match. On the stage was a large pallet wall that the couple commissioned from Gas and Air studios.  This just cried out to be decorated with flowers.  And to frame the wall and lower the ceiling we hung four huge flower bombs.

The pink, cream and plum colour palette was used throughout the arrangements.  From the flower bombs, the church urns to the antique table centres and the botanical buttonholes. Helen and Mark's flower palette was full of roses, spray roses, dahlias, larkspur, snapdragons, bouvardia and sanguisorba.

I loved Helen's brave choice to forego a wedding bouquet.  Instead she held just one beautiful David Austin 'Patience' rose.  It was as if she had just picked it on the way to the ceremony.

The finished room looked stunning, super stylish and the flower bombs framed the feature flower wall perfectly.

I don't usually post behind the scenes photos as I don't want to hijack the finished beauty. But today, I just wanted to give a brief peak at the work that goes into wedding flower designing.  From the sketched out design to the team in action.
