White flowers for a spring wedding in London
Just because you're to be married in a smart, modern venue in London town, there's no reason you shouldn't have home-grown English country flowers at your wedding. We often send flowers to London for weddings. And our wildish, often woodlandy look makes a wonderful contrast with the strict, clean lines of a modern venue. And that's what happened to these flowers. A lovely bride had seven wild table centres in hurricane vase lamps for her guests, and on the mantlepiece in the reception room she had five large jam jar posies dotted either side three hurricane lamps with tall, high quality, church pillar candles inside them. There were four buttonholes only. It was a smart, very pretty, grown up wedding. And this is the bride's bouquet: a mix of white lilac, white ranunculus, Solomon's seal, cow parsley, and other goodies, a lot of which would have been very difficult to find at a London florist. We sent the flowers up by courier, had a long chat with the venue to make sure they knew how to look after them when they arrived, and this London wedding had a real country feel to it. Good idea, don't you think?
