THE COOLEST EVENT SPACE IN LONDON - THE SALOON AT THE NED

Since its opening in April, its been a whirlwind ride for us with the Ned. Not just for the beautiful blooms we've been installing each week but for the incredible events happening each day. We have been lucky enough to help style, decorate and 'fill with flowers' some of the best event spaces we have seen in London. 

The Saloon (our secret favourite) is a romantic, opulent and stylish ballroom that would be the best backdrop to any London wedding, dinner or party. Our most recent event there, we worked with the incredible Jodie, who allowed us to decorate the gigantic, ornate mantlepiece and pack the long dining table full of Peonies, Dahlias, Hellebores and Sweet William's in bold and dark colours. Setting the perfect scene for this social media lunch.

And don't event mention the chandelier...................

THE TAPESTRY ROOM - THE NED

It's only on the rare occasion that Lil and I are left 'speechless' but the first time we entered the Ned......we didn't say much. On discovering The Tapestry room on the event floor we couldn't believe the scale and grandeur of this space.

The original tapestry is one of the largest of its kind. There are 4 impressive fireplaces and the dark wooden panels create an authentic and traditional feel. The amazing chandeliers are beautifully restored and set off the tone for any event.

We recently styled The Tapestry room for a shoot. Using whites and greens to create a fresh look to compliment the room. We used hydrangeas, peonies and sweet peas in stone urns as low feature centrepieces. We decorated each mantlepiece with central pampas grass arrangements and dramatic white leaf arrangements for the fireplaces.

THE NED IN BLOOM

We are delighted to announce that we will be working with The NED, London's most exciting new hotel opening, as the official contract florists.

The Ned hotel, situated in the heart of the city is a truly unique space featuring some of the most incredible features and architecture, that has been brought back to life by the incredible Soho House and Sydell Group. Every last detail has been carefully considered and the building has been perfectly restored to create a sophisticated, grand and cool space.

For the florals we want to help create drama and scale with large and impactful displays for guests entering the hotel and use luxurious and rich roses to enhance the member spaces and relaxed arrangements for the spa and chill out areas.

QUINTESSENTIALLY WEDDING ATELIER

Building our beautiful indoor secret garden at the Quintessentially Wedding Atelier was so much fun with our amazing team. We wanted to create the perfect wedding flower scene using the finest seasonal flowers.

The Langham hotel (a beautiful London wedding venue) was the perfect backdrop to our set, that included 2 10 ft trees, a growing staircase garden and a floral bench to set the scene. Using scented roses, delphiniums, hydrangea, cheery blossom and lots of other beautiful seasonal flowers and foliage.

We met some lovely brides planning their special days and felt inspired by the other exhibitors. Especially the amazing Ricky Paul! Wow.

 

CHRISTMAS IS UPON US

 

We love this time of year and the Grandirosa team have been busier than ever with our luxury Christmas tree delivery and decoration service.

We've been helping our clients to, give their homes a festive feel, transform their office space or bring a warm glow to their restaurant with our beautiful Premier Nordmann trees. For the decoration we wanted to create a traditional feel, selecting gold and bronze tones this year to create a rich and classic look. 

As well as trees we've also been making seasonal garlands and creating luxury wreaths.

Our floral and foliage wreaths have been more popular than ever this year as we created a wilder look to the design. Packed full of thistles, winter berries and eucalyptus, they have been brightening up the doors of many of our clients across London. We think the autumnal and wintery tones of these wreaths are really magical. 

Our work is almost done for this year, but we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very happy 2017.

 

BEHIND THE SCENES

In October we were delighted to be asked to do the flower styling for Wonderlands recent Amanda Wakely shoot. Collaborating with the amazing ToniBlaze and the rest of the team was truly inspiring and the creative talent was infectious. 

We selected some beautiful large blooms in pale colours to create some beautiful angel wing floral headpieces, which were truly unique.

The moody and bizarre setting for the shoot resulted in some amazing images which showcased the some key pieces in the latest collection

BRIDES THE SHOW 2016

 

At this year's Conde Nast's Brides The Show 2016 we created a magical hanging meadow of delphiniums and a table setting full of scented garden roses. We kept our dream like display clean and sophisticated using whites, creams and a hint of green to create a classic and luxury wedding feel.

We loved meeting all the lovely 'brides to be' at the show and can't wait to design and create some beautiful flower displays and installations for the brides who chose us for their weddings.

 

BEAUTIFUL OXFORDSHIRE WEDDING

 
 

Earlier this month we were thrilled to do the flowers for the lovely Mary & Chris at their beautiful Oxfordshire wedding. This amazing couple married in the stunning village of Hambledon and the reception followed in Danesfield House

Mary's classic vision came to life on the day with a colour scheme of pale blush, whites and greens teamed with several bright and bold hydrangea arrangements. Her bouquet of roses complimented her gorgeous wedding dress and she stunned the guests on arrival. The overall look for the reception was elegant and romantic with clustered table arrangements of roses in silver and crystal cut vases. There was a bold hydrangea and rose mantle arrangement and a showstopper tree installation that wowed her guests.

We wish Mary & Chris so much happiness in their new married life.

CAMP KERALA 2016

 

Grandirosa was delighted to create the stunning festival flowers for Camp Kerala 2016 in Glastonbury this June. Given the luxurious feel of this exclusive venue, it was essential for the flowers to match the chic and stylish nature of the event.

We designed and installed hanging meadows, floral arches, a stunning herb bar and other arrangements around the site to dress and deliver the finishing touches to create such a special feel throughout.

We were inspired by the stunning Somerset surroundings and combined a wistful and relaxed feel with bold colours, interesting flower choices and impactful design. This resulted in show stopping installations that felt both perfect for the surroundings and out of this world. The hanging meadow in the restaurant created the perfect atmosphere, using local flower farm flowers. Pale blue delphiniums mixed with varying tones of green and dried flowers.

The herb bar created a beautiful focal point, that smelt divine. The sophisticated floral arches were the perfect entrance for guests entering this cool space.

The hanging meadow in the chill out area, with its bright pink peonies, dahlias and veronicas mixed with the strong dark purple of the delphiniums and green foliage offered a gorgeous space for guests to relax beneath.

 
 
 

BRIDES THE SHOW 2015

 

We absolutely loved our first year exhibiting at Brides the Show 2015. Our display consisted of a large floral swing arrangement full of scented roses, berries, hydrangea, ameranthus and flowing foliage. We added hanging lanterns to create a secret garden atmosphere.

We used a range copper vases for our wedding table arrangements, full of huge scented garden roses to complete the look. 

The whole show was beautifully presented, full of amazing suppliers from exceptional dress designers and stunning venues to talented stationers and cake designers. We were absolutely thrilled to be part of it.
