It was a beautiful sunny February day just after Valentines when I delivered and set up Imogen and Adam’s wedding flowers at Hogarths Hotel in Solihull.
The couple went for a classic elegant flower theme of lilies and roses with a touch of sparkle.
Imogen chose a bouquet full of ivory roses. I carefully added diamante pins into the centre of every rose. Her bridesmaids held ivory calla lily bouquets that I finished with a satin ribbon handle featuring diamante pins to match detailing on the bridal bouquet. The whole effect was simply stunning.
When I met Imogen and Adam at their consultation, they fell in love with one of my tall table centrepiece designs. We decided on a few alterations and came up with the design that you can see here. A mass of white oriental lilies sitting on a tall vase filled with gel balls and lit with underwater lights.
These centrepieces worked perfectly in the marquee at Hogarths. It took days of preparation to get the lilies to the exact right stage for these arrangements. As well as lots of plucking pollen to make sure it didn’t stain the petals. All that preparation was worth it as they looked fabulous and really transformed the marquee, as well as smelling wonderful.
