following my previous blog and its ‘dark & romantic ‘ theme, here are a few pictures from the lovely Maria’s wedding, late October 2011. Maria wanted to combine dark twigs and foliage with vintage brown roses & accents of honesty (a blast from the past!). She didn’t want anything too pretty and preferred a slightly darker & gothic aesthetic. The final bouquet was probably my favorite of the year as it is sometimes nice to break away from the norm & pretty. Let me know your thoughts?
Late November 2011, Jon finally made a honest woman of the lovely Saira. Jon is the owner of Bacchus bar & Kitchen, a Hoxton gastropub serving the best of british cooking, in a relaxed and cozy setting. Jon, was pretty much our first regular client at The Willow, helping them to create their weekly main and table arrangements, with a simple brief of “just be creative and different”.
So when asked to help with their wedding, i was more than happy to oblige. The inspiration and direction was ‘dark and romantic’. We created similar style arrangements in 3 different sizes for the various rooms at The Town Hall hotel, in Bethnal Green. A beautiful, georgian-style, converted old Town Hall. The Main chamber rooms where the wedding ceremony took place was just breathtaking.
The flowers used for the arrangements include; cream bloom chrysanthemums, purple asenka lisianthus, mariachi lime lisianthus, black curly willow + dark foliage
