Franka and Killian
Burgh House in Hampstead Heath & Bistrotheque in East London.
A May wedding in London. The flowers were to be Romantic but also structured. We wanted to reflect the natural seasons a much as possible. Working with soft pastel colours in pinks, peaches and lilacs to compliment the end of Spring and the beginning of the Summer.

Christmases Gone By
Some photos of Christmas flowers from previous years in the old studio on Hoxton Street.
I often think Christmas is the hardest time to be a florist, you do twice the amount of work for the same money and the days are long and the daylight is diminishing. You find yourself installing Christmas all over London and then arriving late and dirty to your own friends parties, only to wake up with a cracking hangover the next day and start it all over again.
Sarah & Jack London Bridge
A blue and yellow colour brief for a wedding. It was a new one for us. Luckily we were in the perfect season of mid summer. So we sought out tones of yellow and blue British flowers from across the whole of UK. Working with British delphinium, scabious and brides in deep blues. Yellow lupins and scabious blending into white sap.Scroll for pictures of the incredible Wedding Ceremony hoop the grooms father made.
A Winter Wedding in London
Red and pink roses en mass. For this winter wedding the grooms wanted and abundance of pink and red roses. We installed 12 hanging flower clouds , all suspended from the ceiling of the restaurant. Each hanging flowers display was different. We made some with all red roses and just a few pink. Sitting next to a huge flower cloud with British hydrangea and trails of amaranthus. The table flowers were little clusters or aliens as we called them, so that you could differentiate between the table and the display, we wanted these to be the antithesis of a traditional wedding table setting. The piano and plinths around the venue had abstract displays of roses on them. These tied together the hanging flowers and the table flowers. At the entrance to the venue a suspension of flowers was hung above a pink carpet to welcome guests.
Peonies are a florist’s worst enemy. Coral Peonies in particular. They are seasonal just like all other flowers, but people want them all year around.
Every year, I declare war on them and every year, they come around again and I keep buying them. So, I’m a sucker for them too!
Just don’t over do it and don’t ask for them between August and April.
