Angelina & Stuart, Queen’s House, Royal Greenwich
The initial meeting with Angelina was a very relaxed affair, after work in a café in Blackheath. During the meeting we discussed how important the flowers were to her and how much they were an integral part of the day. Angelina had a very good idea of the flowers that she loved, which included peonies and hydrangea. As the wedding was to take place in May it was the perfect season for both of these flowers. I suggested adding fabulous English Sweet Peas to the design along with seasonal herbs for contrast.
Angelina wanted to complement the elegant simplicity of Queen’s House and we discussed her and Stuart having a refined colour scheme of white, cream and green – a perfect match for the venue.
Further to the elegant and refined feel, Angelina and Stuart wanted to ensure that the guests felt relaxed. We suggested a low table centre design that would enable conversation between the guests to flow. In addition to the table centres, the bridal bouquet was a high priority for Angelina.
Squeezing as much out of the budget as we could and to achieve maximum impact on the day, we suggested a large pedestal design of white hydrangea and white tulips within the beautiful Tulip Staircase area. Many guests were impressed by this piece.
With the designs agreed, the installation and logistics on the day were a straight-forward affair. After delivering the bouquets and buttonholes to Angelina we arrived at Queen’s House and two members of our team installed the table designs, window designs and staircase design.
