Charlotte & James’ Stunning September Wedding

Hosted on Saturday 9th September 2023 (one of the hottest days of the year), Charlotte & James tied the knot in a village that was just a stone’s throw from the Fiona Curry Flowers studio. It was an utter joy to work with this couple to bring their flower visions to life, and we are thrilled to be able to share a snippet from their very special day with you on the journal.

Charlotte was a vision, wearing a long-sleeved gown with delicate lace detailing. She wore her sun kissed blonde hair in an elegant yet relaxed up-do, which was the perfect fit for their laidback and luxurious event. We created the most beautiful trailing bridal bouquet – it looked like a painting! The bouquet itself was brimming with David Austin Wedding Roses in shades of soft ivory and pale peach, which looked divine alongside pale pink Antirrhinum, light blue Delphinium, white Scabiosa and oodles of natural foliage. The bridesmaids looked delightful in an array of mix and match gowns featuring various blue shades, with abundant bouquets that complemented the bridal bouquet wonderfully. An ivory satin ribbon tied around the stems added that all-important finishing touch to the bridesmaid bouquets!

After a traditional religious ceremony in the village church (with flowers by the lovely ladies at the church), friends and family walked to the reception together to unveil the exquisite marquee at the family home. The newlyweds, however, made their own way to their celebration in a beautiful vintage car – the perfect way to arrive in true style.

As guests arrived at the marquee, they were greeted by the most beautiful setting with luxurious floral design. Long wooden trestle tables were adorned with garlands (which came to 54 metres), overflowing with ‘Purity’ Roses by David Austin, Garden Roses in the palest peach hue, pink Lisianthus and Antirrhinum, ivory Scabious and Phlox, light blue Delphinium and mixed pink Dahlia – all of which was mixed with deep green natural foliage. Our silver tealights and glass taper candle holders were gracefully scattered along the tables which offered a subtle ambience throughout the reception.

Our team at Fiona Curry Flowers created three large hanging installations to further elevate the marquee styling, with light pink flowers and blue Delphiniums, large branches of Silver Birch and oodles of greenery. For an extra hint of magic, we worked in twinkling fairy lights that looked show-stopping against the backdrop of the sunset later on in the evening.

This was without a doubt one of the hottest days of the year, and even though Fiona (our Founder) once owned a flower shop in Southern Italy for many years, even she had never felt so warm working at a wedding! Fiona explains, “My team were outstanding and were full of beaming smiles after working for two days onsite in such high temperatures. I was so very proud of them and their work.”

As always, a huge thank you to Charlotte & James’ photographer, Richard Greenly, for capturing their beautiful story on camera. We hope you have enjoyed soaking up the floral inspiration. Don’t forget, if you are looking for a luxury florist for your wedding day, we welcome you to get in touch!

A ‘Walled Garden’ Wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hampshire

When Mellina and Tom approached me to create the luxury flower design for their Hampshire wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel, I just knew the occasion was going to be utterly enchanting. Set amid rolling hills, enticing gardens and over 500 acres of countryside, this Georgian manor house promises the perfect setting for a quintessentially English wedding. Keep scrolling to immerse yourself in the floral delights of Mellina & Tom’s walled garden wedding…

Hosted on Saturday 2nd July 2022, the weather delivered a day of endless sunshine with a delicate and welcome summer breeze. The bride-to-be was incredibly lovely and an absolute pleasure to work with. Mellina had a clear vision in mind, while allowing my floral creativity to shine through in each and every design. The brief was for feminine flowers that were full, voluminous and textured, embracing the romance of the location. And… we did just that!

Mellina looked a vision wearing a Lyn Ashworth Gown, purchased from the Wedding Atelier in Paddington. Her make-up artist, Melissa Clare, created a natural yet glamorous look. The bride’s trailing bridal bouquet was brimming with everything that Mellina adored, from elegant orchids to a touch of mint for a subtle and natural scent that carried throughout the day. Pillow-soft blush pink roses also made an appearance, effortlessly tying in with the pink gowns that the bridesmaids were wearing. The sweetest flower girls wore gypsophila flower crowns while carrying wicker baskets overflowing with petals.

As the bride and her team of ‘maids glided down the walled garden ready for the ceremony, the flowers we had designed looked beautiful against the backdrop of the Four Seasons Hotel. Dainty pink posies with long flowing trails of foliage that touched the floor were tied to the ceremony chairs using ivory satin ribbon, featuring tails that gracefully danced with the breeze. The couple had their hearts set on a flower arch, which we create using big blousy blooms wrapped with swatches of soft ivory fabric.

After the newlyweds had exchanged their vows under the blue skies, Mellina and Tom made their way into the Mandeville Suite for their reception. Round guest tables were styled to absolute perfection, alongside a thoughtful mixture of tall glass vases with large arrangements that matched the bridal flowers and luxurious white Phlox, as well as tables with lowered flower arrangements and the addition of our FCF vintage gold tea lights. It really was a sight to behold!
