"Vanessa was a pleasure to deal with, and she got on my wavelength very quickly, and seemed to know exactly what I wanted. The end results were stunning and were much admired." Sue Beck

From Vanessa:
"I love designing both modern and traditional wedding flowers, and have lots of ideas to help get you started. I'm keen to work with brides to make sure you get your dream flowers within your budget - no matter how big or small!"

Sarah and Tom were married in May 2012 in Ware, Hertfordshire and choose a beautiful colour scheme of cream and chocolate brown for the day.

Sarah is from New Zealand and the couple ¬†wanted this reflected in the flowers – we used lots of lush greenery and a variety of leaves, ferns and grasses to reflect the natural qualities of New Zealand and it’s native bush.

Calla Lilies are Sarah’s favourite flower and were the focal point for the designs, with the buttonholes and corsages being simple and modern using the smaller Crystal Blush variety. Sarah’s bouquet was a stunning, architectural grouping of Calla Lilies, with bear grass, fern leaves and a rich chocolate brown ribbon. Her bridesmaids in their beautiful dresses (handmade by a family friend!) held a smaller version of Sarah’s.

The ceremony was held in a beautifully grand hall, and 2 altar arrangements in cream and green were placed either side at the front of the room. The top table arrangement was used on the registrars table and later moved downstairs for the reception.

Sarah and Tom knew they wanted something reasonably modern for the reception, so the installation of 3 tall glass vases with submerged Calla Lilies was absolutely perfect – they really suited the theme and were beautiful in the evening once the floating candles were lit.

Sarah had a very clear idea of how she wanted to decorate the cake, and the cascade of Calla’s down the side to the corner turned out beautifully.

Sarah’s vision for the day translated so well through the flowers. They were modern, yet still simple and classic, and the perfect backdrop for their special day!
