    Corinthia Hotel

    Corinthia Hotel

     

    Rachel
    One of London’s finest hotels, the Corinthia opened in 1885 under the name Hôtel Métropole. Walking through the grand entrance of this historic building, across the lobby and up the stairs into the Lounge, we loved finding ourselves immersed in the very heart of this splendid piece of London’s heritage. This regal oasis, where impeccable elegance prevails and natural light floods in from the glass-domed ceiling, makes it an unrivalled setting for a wedding. The day Rachel, one of our brides, had always dreamt of, began from the moment she took a glimpse at this magnificent backdrop. Her desire was for her guests to step into an enchanted, bloom-filled celebration of love, bursting with covetable details. “More is more!” Our inspiration for the overall floral style of a wedding can come from varied places, it can be the wedding dress luring us in a specific direction or the venue dictating the colour palette. In this case, it most definitely came from the exquisite spaces of the Corinthia. After an initial site visit with the bride and her family, we started to design the first drafts and sketched stylistic arrangements. For Rachel, after a careful understanding of her desires, it was effortless to build a recipe of a floral fairytale brought to life. Petals in a palette of white Vanda Orchids, soft pink O’Hara Roses, Viburnum and Clematis - offset by foliage and Lilacs - set the tone, complemented by sumptuous and tall floral displays.
    The final design included a dressed staircase to the entrance of the Corinthia and a stunning floral archway to the staging area, which was lusciously continued as tabletops, weaving between the heart of the ceremony and the guests. A three-tired plinth display was placed on either side of the stage and the candle-lit aisle added a dream-like element and was very much in harmony with the rich wedding decor. Rachel was blown away by our displays and to this day she tells us that her guests are still talking about her amazing "wedding flowers"
    Charlie
    On recommendation from Rachel’s wedding planner, Charlie reverted to us for a loose, romantic woodland-themed wedding at the Corinthia. For us the word woodland conjures up with fragrant meadows and wild foliage that evoke a primal and organic feel drawing on the riches of Nature. We aimed at creating a bucolic atmosphere centred on an intimate celebrations of love to be shared with family and friends. We brought the outdoors within the gorgeous indoor setting of the Corinthia and designed a dreamy woodland grove to ornate a beautiful Chuppah, with wild English hedgerow, branches, birch, moss and a mixture of soft pinks, white and green florals. Charlie wanted Nature to provide a lovely backdrop for a memorable, one-of-a-kind ceremony, melding authenticity with carefully-crafted accents elevating the stage and the table areas.

    Bridelux

    Bridelux

    Bridelux is the synonym of exquisite, luxurious weddings. Covering London and New York, this
    media brand converges and showcases the very best talents in the wedding industry.
    Bridelux presents a handpicked collection of premium wedding experts, bringing together in some
    of London’s most prestigious venues the latest trends in fashion, jewellery, make-up, flowers,
    honeymoon destinations... all in one location!
    We attended the event for three days, which was a unique opportunity for us to meet people from
    the industry and nurture blossoming networks with world-famous wedding designers such as Alan
    Berg, Colin Cowie, Johnny Roxburgh, to name only a few!
    Hannah Routledge, a renowned London-based wedding planner who we had worked with on
    several weddings and events, approached us to be part of Bridelux and of course this opportunity
    was music to our ears.
    We are proud to say we had the opportunity to create floral displays for the opening night at the
    stunning Hotel Café Royal, located in Piccadilly Circus, and Carlton House Terrace, in St. James’s.
    We let ourselves be inspired by those stunning backdrops and, after visiting the venues, we laid
    down the first sketches and developed a concept that could blend in gracefully into those
    magnificent spaces.
    At Hotel Café Royal, we designed a grand table arrangement for the main lobby; a gorgeous
    rhapsody of flowers that filled the room with bright colours and vibrant shapes.
    We then arranged an immaculately detailed entrance display with birch trees and candlelight that
    seamlessly integrated with the architecture and instilled a soft vibe to the whole area.
    Some venues are beautiful in themselves and if you add too much, the risk is to overpower the
    atmosphere with unnecessary elements. The ballroom at Hotel Café Royal is very opulent, so we
    developed an unobtrusive floral design that harmoniously added to the materials, decorative
    features and colour palettes. White Hydrangeas served the purpose perfectly with their graceful
    appeal that softly weaved in with the outside terrace dressed with lanterns, trees and foliage
    garlands. Here we drew on the wonderful ambiance
    of a natural and yet sophisticated setting to
    create a magical and enchanted atmosphere.
    At Carlton House Terrace we were inspired to dress the staircase in a complementary and
    contrasting scheme. The soothing, soft tones of white roses and Hydrangeas worked well with the
    dark-coloured staircase. White and beige tones assumed golden warm hues in the candlelight,
    allowing the stunning magnificence of the staircase to shine through even more.
    At Carlton House Terrace, each room has its own character and design and we aimed at
    emphasising and translating their stylistic individuality into our floral designs, without taking away
    from the intrinsic beauty of their architecture. We tailored each design to match each room – soft
    pinks and gold for the main room, blues and oranges for the gallery to match with the paintings and
    blue white and pink wild garden displays in the main speakers’ room.

    The British Museum

    The British Museum

    The British Museum is one of the largest museums in the world and houses over seven million artefacts relating to human history and culture. One of our most favourite venues to work at, it boasts an amazing selection of different-themed lobbies for opulent events. We have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity of working on several floral arrangements at The British Museum, from the entrance for a new gallery styled in a tropical/botanical theme, to the Museum’s trustees’ receptions and dinners, and the opening for the brand new Japan Gallery. At LoveFlowers we approach design from a broad perspective and breadth of experience based on the observation of Nature, fashion, history, food... this combined knowledge galvanises us to create floral expressions that engage the senses with beauty. The Rodin Corporate Partners Reception echoed our holistic approach; a beautiful ancient Greece-inspired event with a 40ft walkway culminating with two magnificent plinths; lovely olive tree displays instilled a welcoming Mediterranean summer calmness to the whole hall. The poetic contrast of billowing summer flowers and foliage against strong architecture was an essential element to bring a fresh Grecian look to the room, with a delicate use of white Hydrangeas and Astilbe mixed with soft pink Roses, Lavender and Blue Nigella. Our installation worked in partnership with the historical, artistic and architectural features of the venue. Our floral designs gracefully weaved into a past era and complemented modern taste with emotional connections. As a result, this attention to Grecian aesthetics added charm and cohesion to the final outcome.

    Christmas

    Christmas

    From the white buds in spring to the brilliant red and oranges of falling leaves, every season is visually striking to us. But in the busy weeks leading up to the festive season, when the days get shorter and shorter and the skies turn into a clear, chilly and crisp blue, our floral designs shine bright with the magic of Christmas. Every year in the build-up to Christmas, we dedicate weeks of planning, designing, sketching, assembling, polishing, arranging to get our clients’ venues ready for Christmas, and we are always excited and delighted to bring creative and shimmering floral ideas to grace any type of space for this joyful season. With a range of bespoke solutions we can create something truly wonderful that’s tailored to suit any space, from an intimate room to grand reception halls. Everything that our in-house team of designers and craftsmen create is truly unique and designed to exceed our clients’ expectations for a guaranteed wow factor. At The Alphabeta Building, located in the heart of the City in Finsbury Square, we have been arranging floral displays over the last few years and we are particularly proud and fond of a Christmas arrangement we have recently developed there. This majestic building opens up on a grand and modern reception space that was dressed with a white and gold-themed snowy park scene. Strategically placed lanterns would cast soft golden hues on the birch trees and the park benches covered in snow.
    We loved creating this winter wonderland inside one of the most renowned office spaces in London and the outstanding narnia-esque result got an incredible feedback from the client.
