This wedding was a labour of love, Jason & I have known Jenni's family for about twenty+ years, Jenni, Natalie & 'Little Timmy' along with our Rebecca & Olivia were the very last children left in 'Late Room' at school every single evening without fail.
Jenni and her family have enjoyed Flower Design flowers for all of their special occasions for more years than any of us care to remember and I have enjoyed making them. Jenni's fabulous Mum the lovely Ruth & Natalie have attended our workshops & flower arranging classes, so we really know these folks, we know their flower taste, which makes it an absolute joy to get creative for the ultimate family celebration a Wedding!!.
Jenni once promised me that wherever in the world she should get married I would be making her wedding flowers, she's lived all over the world so thank goodness it was only London!!! It was a massive honour and a huge privilege to be there in London on the biggest of days with a van filled to bursting with glorious fresh wedding flowers!!! Thank you Jenni, Wolf, Ruth, John, Maki, Natalie, Tim, Doris & Wolfgang for allowing us to be a small part of your spectacular day we loved every second of it xxx
So this is how our wedding flower story starts... so way back last year Jason & I headed off to London to meet up with Wolf & Jenni, it was lovely to meet Wolf for the first time and discover how well suited these two are, we had a great morning visiting their wedding venues, The Asylum Chapel in Peckham was completely mind blowing, outside it looks so majestic.
Inside it looks so naked, stripped back and ridiculously atmospheric, we loved it!!!
The stained glass windows provided us with some colour inspiration
We very nearly almost got them to reproduce this pose on their wedding day but you'll have to scroll all the way through the post to see that!!xx
We headed off to Brixton East 1871 to see the venue for the wedding reception and met up with the really helpful and super welcoming Andy and the team
We checked out the space and planned our flower ideas
Jenni & Wolf created a Mood Board and filled us in with their outfit plans, food ideas, entertainment and cake plans
In February Jenni, Natalie & Ruth came in to see a set of sample designs we'd created, due to their seasonality we couldn't show them the Peonies we wanted to include at the end of April but we could show them the general flower vibe we intended, this included a whole host of blooms with significant meaning, more than just a nod to Jenni & Wolf's own heritage, English, Indian, German and Scottish elements were all gathered together to create a magical bouquet...
The sample Bridal Bouquet created for Jenni
The sample Boutonniere created for Wolf
Sample Table and Pedestal designs were also put together
The meal would be including a 'Fondue' so that needed to be accounted for, golden pineapples featured
At long last the big day (for us the longest day) finally arrived, Jenni's bridal bouquet looked scrumptious, I'd included fresh Jasmine, voluptuous Peonies in Coral & Burgundy, Thistles, Heather, Jasmine, Roses, Orchids, Lily of the Valley, Blossom, Helebores, Pineapples, Ranunculus, Anemones, Muscari, Forget Me Nots, Astilbe, Rosemary, Peppermint and Blossom in a rich and vibrant colour scheme.

The fragrance of Lily of the Valley, Jasmine and English garden Roses filled the air
I showed everyone how to carry their bouquets perfectly
I fitted the Bride's Mum's wrist corsage
The Bridesmaid's Bouquets were all created as smaller versions of the Bride's Bouquet
Next stop was the spectacular Asylum Chapel
Inside we'd set the scene for a magical wedding ceremony

Two more Urns filled with fresh blossom, Peonies, Roses, Proteas and Jasmine framed the stage sat on the two stone plinths
The aisle was lined with posies of fresh flowers and garlands of Smilax Fern with a scattering of fresh fragrant Rose Petals
Chair Dressing Posies
Our ancient pedestals and urns were filled with tall Peach Blossom, Spirea Blossom, Delphiniums, Stocks, Peonies, Proteas and Viburnum Blossom, the fresh relaxed foliages tumbeled over the sides of the urn
I lined up all of the boutonnieres near to a window so I could see to pin them on to the Groom and his Groom's Men
Each Boutonniere was created uniquely made from the same palette of fresh flowers as the bridal bouquets
Corsages for Maki & Doris
The rather special Bride Groom's Boutonniere featured fresh Muscari, Ranunculus, Rolled Rose Petals, Spirea Blossom, Eryngium Thistle, Helebore, Sweet Peas and Astrantia and was bound with navy blue ribbon to match his navy blue velvet jacket
