The fabulous bright colours of Hannah and Adrian’s wedding flowers were totally in keeping with the joyous feeling of the day. They are a really cool couple and they carried off with style the beautiful clash of dark purples, pillar-box reds and acid greens.
I used a combination of gerberas, tulips, lisianthus and bupleurum to create contemporary, summery bouquet for Hannah with red gerberas for all her bridesmaids and the buttonholes and corsages. Adrian was happy to go for it with his buttonhole so he got the sexy dark lisianthus too.
The reception was held at St. Dunstan’s College in South London which has a large and very grand hall. Hannah organised the arrangements for the tables but I sorted out the quantities and purchase of flowers from New Covent Garden Market to ensure that the quality was good and costs were kept down. There are lots of ways of keeping to a budget (something Stemgirl is a bit fanatical about) and this is a nice example of florist and client collaborating to make things work. Here’s what Hannah has to say about Stem:
“Ruth was a joy to work with, from the first meeting when she welcomed us into her home to her smiling face as she handed over the bouquet on the wedding morning. The flowers were gorgeous, she chose perfectly for a us as we had no idea of all the varities on offer, one of the best things was during the consultation being shown in a book what flowers she was thinking of. The final result was even better than we expected and looking back at the photos they match perfectly with our bright colourful day!” Thank you, Hannah!
And very well done to you both!
