To create a timeless and elegant summer wedding scheme that would sit harmoniously in the iconic Victoria & Albert museum. The bride, a renowned interior designer, adored blush pink and white flowers and wanted to create a wedding which would stand the test of time. In 20 years, she wanted to be able to look back at her photos and feel the wedding could still have only just taken place.

The bride also wanted to have her ceremony outdoors and add impact in the grand surroundings of the V&A museum for guests during dinner. Hugely detail driven, it was imperative that we ensure each element of her wedding design worked in harmony to offer a final result which was beyond elegant.

The Final Creation

We created a hugely elegant and sophisticated wedding palette using crisp white tones alongside inclusions of blush bink, vintage pink and cappuccino. Quicksand roses combined with blush pink astilbe, Mother’s Choice blush pink peonies and white avalanche roses from the best rose grower in the world, Meijer, to create a beautiful scheme which in our humble opinion is entirely timeless. Using bountiful supplies of English cut greens ensured lots of movement and texture was realised. Paring these colours against gold accents, vintage cane furniture and parchment linens offered a scheme which was sympathetic to the existing interior decoration and architecture within the V&A museum. The linen paired perfectly with the stone columns whilst a multitude of textures ensured a scheme which was warm and inviting.

Outdoors and fighting against the impending British weather, we created a garden inspired ceremony that used the same colours the bride fell in love with. Floral meadows ran along the aisle whilst a golden chuppah, adorned with a garden of blooms took centre stage, resulting in an understated Jewish wedding ceremony setting that worked perfectly in the courtyard of the V&A museum in London.

Within the Dome at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London we created the most elegant and luxurious flower arrangements. Inspired by the English countrywide, each tall flower arrangement had lashings of British foliage alongside flowers in blush pink, vintage pink and nude tones. The after party continued in the Dome as guests danced and celebrated together beneath the iconic Chihuly installation.
