Sarah and Dom got married on a beautiful hot summer day in July. The wedding ceremony was held at Hackney Town Hall, followed by a wedding reception at Walthamstow Wetlands.
A few months before the wedding Sarah got in touch by email and shared ideas and pictures of the colour palette and wild flower look she was keen on. We had a chat over the phone so that we could discuss ideas and guide Sarah on what beautiful flowers were in season. Sarah wanted warm oranges, corals, light pinks and blue flowers, arranged in a loose and natural way. July was bursting with lots of beautiful summer flowers that perfectly fitted the brief. We selected beautiful British grown flowers including dahlias, cosmos, sweet peas, scabiosa, calendula, borage, nigella, ammi, snap dragons, veronica, zinneas and creme brulee phlox (the most delicious named flower!). All of these flowers really complimented the meadow surroundings of the Wetlands and fitted with the colourful, bright look. The flowers were arranged in jam jars of various sizes, and given away as a lovely wedding favour to guests. As ever we are always trying to be sustainable in our floral practices and, by using jam jars as vases, it made the wedding completely plastic free.
Sarah wanted an all foliage flower crown and foliage buttonholes. We used lots of different foliage and grasses to add texture and interest. In fact we made the most buttonholes and corsages we have ever made for a wedding; there were 26 in total! Including two little edible herb buttonholes for the page boys, in case they decided to have a little snack!
Here's what Sarah and Dom had to say about their wedding flowers:
"We absolutely loved our wedding flowers from Petal HQ. I threw lots of ideas at Laura without knowing exactly what we wanted and she got it spot on! Communication with Laura was wonderful from start to end and Laura is just a treat to work with. I recommend Petal HQ wholeheartedly".
