March, you are already shaping up to be an absolute stunner! Leslie and Arkadius have been blessed with the most amazing spring sunshine for their big day at Danesfield House. As well as the sun shining down on the lucky couple, Leslie also managed to choose some of my all time favourite flowers and colour combination. Peach is still huge, especially when teamed with dashes of rose gold, metallic and just the slightest sprinkle of copper.
We started planning Leslie's wedding flowers just a few months ago, with her coming to see us with tons of visual inspiration for the flowers. She was a total joy to work with and she completely trusted our flower choices for the big day. David Austin Juliette roses were combined with Bombastic spray roses, ranunculus, orchids and hints of lilac to create a lush dome of floral gorgeousness to carry down the aisle. How much do you love the ranunculus/rose combination, it totally took my breath away.
The amazing fireplace in the Versailles Suite at Danesfield House needed something huge and natural to balance with the super grand chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. Armed with ladders and wielding scissors we got stuck into the mammoth task of this huge creation. From this image you cannot even grasp the amazing scale of this beauty. Filled with hydrangeas, roses, lilac, ranunculus and tones of foliage, this fireplace arrangement created a focus point at Danesfield House. I wish so much I had a fireplace large enough to house one of these beauties on a regular basis. I also wish I could take you all there so you could see it in real time.
Rose gold and peach ran throughout Leslie's wedding at Danesfield House. With such an ornate room as The Versailles Suite, you need something that's going to tie in beautifully and these rose gold goblet pots held the key to tying all the elements together. Not only did they look awesome with the peach flowers, but they matched little details within the room .... AND they're bang on trend with the metallic vibe that's circling the floral world at the moment.
These arrangements firstly lined the aisle, drawing guests eyes to the amazing fireplace arrangement. They were then moved to the tables and given away as gifts to their guests afterwards. Filled with roses, lilac, ranunculus, spray roses and foliage, these peachy posies would have been the perfect thing to take away after their magical wedding day.
