The Ned Wedding Showcase

 

Over the past year we have been creating flowers for weddings and events at The Ned so it was great to be involved with their first wedding showcase back in January, it was an opportunity to really show off the beautiful rooms available at The Ned for a very special day.

The event brought together selected suppliers from across the wedding industry with The Ned’s in-house events team.  The day was styled by Jessie Sorores from Studio Sorores, there were beautifully set tables dressed with luxurious linens, Soho Home tableware as well as flowers by us.  Brides had the opportunity to sample bespoke wedding cakes by Krisanthi and Preboyon, enjoy a manicure from Ned’s club spa and live entertainment by DJs Wedding Smashers.

In the RWB room there was a press lunch for selected journalists and bloggers who were treated to a three course lunch by The Ned’s event chefs.  For the table here we created arrangements in footed crystal cut bowls which were accompanied by clusters of smaller vases, in these we went for a dusky pink colour scheme with hints of darker pinks and burgundies.  We used a selection of pink roses including Pink O’Hara, Secret Garden and Cafe Latte, deep burgundy anemones, hellebores and pale pink genesta, the delicacy of the pale pinks was off set with dark foliage.  As well as enjoying a tasty lunch and glass of champagne each lucky journalist got to take home a small bouquet of flowers gifted from us.

In the tapestry room we stuck to a fresh white and green colour scheme, which we know works so well here and compliments the room.  The table was immaculately set for a wedding breakfast on which we nestled flowers in crystal cut bowls between the candelabras, in these we used the beautifully scented O’Hara roses and lilacs with seasonal anemones, ranunculus and hellebore whilst the scabious pods and flowering viburnum foliage added more texture.

We also styled one of the original fireplaces in the Tapestry room with a beautiful installation of white and green flowers that grew and trailed over the marble.  For this we used white delphiniums, tuberose and agapanthus to create height on the fireplace with clusters of roses and lilacs throughout, a variety of foliages such as olive, soft ruscus and camellia brought the installation together creating a stunning backdrop that would make for memorable photographs at any wedding.

On the day there was a photoshoot for which we collaborated with La Bespoke and Studio Sorores creating a bridal bouquet that included dusky pinks and whites.  The brief was for a natural, loose bouquet full of texture, using clusters of the softest pink roses, anemones and ranunculus we produced an asymmetric bouquet full of movement with addition of eucalyptus, trailing white genesta and scabious flowers and seed pods.
