Its always a pleasure to work with Kate Halfpenny. Her dresses are truly beautiful pieces. Everytime I visit her boutique, I want to get married all over again!
The flowers I chose for this shoot included, anemones, ranunculas, lilac, hellebores, jasmine and astrantia. For the dark pink bouquet, I used Pink piano roses, anemones, clematis and a little foliage. The contrast of the cream and the almost black purple anemones looked really stunning.

Together with www.whitedoorevents.co.uk and www.villadolce.co.uk, Victoria Flowers transformed the venue for a magical garden party to celebrate the arrival of a beautiful baby boy!
I was recently given a brief to make up a bridal headdress to fit a beach style wedding with a relaxed, laid back feel. I chose to use dendrobium orchids, stephanotis for the trails on the headdress, white thistle and a little white phlox. The effect was delicate and flowing. I look forward to seeing the piece in the magazine soon.
Take a look at this week's Hello magazine (21st Oct issue no. 1299) Page 121 features a bridal bouquet by Victoria Flowers. I am thrilled to have my work feauterd next to London's prestigious Wild at Heart.
The bouquet was made up of heavenly scented English garden roses from London's new covent garden market, beautifully blowsy English Lisianthus in sorbet tones of pinks and peaches with a few white snowberries to bring in the change of seasons. The bouquet was tied off with vintage lace and pearl pins.
Stunning decoration for any event. Bespoke letters for your wedding day, numbers for a birthday party or cheeky words that have a special meaning for your occasion. These made to order letters are a fun addition to your event. They can be covered in foliage, moss or flowers and look great with fairy lights too. Hung against a wall or placed on the ground and available in any desired size. Please do contact me if you would like further details or pricing.
Victoria Flowers donated jam jars of summer English dahlia and lisianthus in aid of Macmillian Charity for a coffee morning at Kate Halfpenny's London boutique.
These delightful arrangements were made up for a boy's baby shower. I used soft tones of blues, whites and creams. Hyndrangea, campanula, jasmine, roses, lisianthus, gypsophilia and phlox.
The start of the summer was an exciting occasion for our household with our own wedding. With a little help from some gorgeous flowery friends and even a visit all the way from Seoul/Korea, by Jojo, the owner of www.inspired-byjojo.com, our flowers looked perfect for our special day.
I chose summer flowers in whites and creams with hints of yellow to fit with our 'lemmon' theme. Marguerites, Camomile daisies, David Austin Roses, English garden roses, Scabious, Larkspur and Campanula were the summer flowers of choice. The entrance to the church and reception were decorated with lush garlands of mixed seasonal foliage and plenty of lemons! The tables and dressers in the Old Kitchen venue at Kenwood House were decorated with vintage milk bottles, jam jars and medicine bottles, filled with loose stems of flowers. A perfectly lush and informal look to suit the day.

These pictures show a taste of the flowers I made up last week for HalfpennyLondon's new collection photoshoot. I am so pleased to be working with this amazingly talented designer. Kate's dresses are dreamy, British made, vintage inspired, adorned with french laces and hand beading, they are simply stunning timeless pieces. The shoot went really well and and the flowers opened perfectly for these dramatically oversized headdresses.
Last week I was asked to make up some flowers for a showcase event at The Hawksmoor Steakhouse restaurant in Guildhall. After setting up party flowers there earlier in the year, I was kindly chosen as a preferred supplier for future events at the venue. The restaurant is a perfect place for a city wedding reception with ample space for drinks and canapes, followed by a meat filled feast in the restaurant until 2am. The venue is very cool with dark wood panelling, leather chairs and gorgeous herringbone floors. I'm yet to try the food but its on my list of 'must do's' this year!
The flowers were set up for a long table of 25 guests using old cut glass dishes and bottles. Each vessel filled with white and green flowers with a hint of dusty pink. Dahlias, Peonies, Nigella,Tulips and sweet avalanche roses. Senecio and Spirea were used to add texture. This combination was beautiful and worked perfectly against the dark wood interior. Unfortunately I didn't take my camera on site to show the set up! But this was a snap of them ready to go out the door!
Alongside some of London's most prestigious florists... Victoria Flowers has had its first exposure! Thank you so much to Eleonore Crompton @themumdaytimes and especially to Kate @halfpennyLondon.
The selected bouquet was a modern, beach style number in whites and greens. I chose to use Eucharis lilies and Calla Lilies with flashes of asparagus fern and bear grass.
