Elizabeth and Grant

Grant proposed to Elizabeth in the gardens of Versailles and this influenced the colours and designs of this magnificent wedding. Elizabeth being in the interior design game created her own custom linens. Check out the seating card table with a towering floral lamp base and ivy leaf shade.

Sarah and Toby

The gardens at Newstead House provided the backdrop for this lunchtime wedding, styled by Monica Blinco (an amazing interior designer) and the lovely Di (Mother of Bride). Every detail, from the simplicity of the bride's single long stemmed red rose, to the statement floral in a large urn, and the bridesmaids 50's style dresses with fresh flowers in their hair to the deliciously simple wedding sponge cake with strawberries and cream, was meticulously thought out and executed with verve.

Kate and Michael

This wedding was bought forward due to the Bride's dad's poor health, so it was a bittersweet day that Kate and Michael tied the knot. However the love of family and special friends bound this day with treasured memories. And this year the peony season started a little earlier than others, so Kate could have her favourite flowers in her bouquet.

Nat & Todd

Drawing inspiration from the invite design we played on the bird theme - hence small floral displays which included faux nests with eggs which were placed on small tables and several large trees with flower balls that made an impact as taller features in the various rooms. Vases with red gladioli brightened up a quiet corner. Alchemy provided the inspiration for the colour scheme with their vibrant red chandeliers and blue walls.
