In April, we brought loose meadows, wistful blossom and flowing spring flowers to the stone halls of the Natural History Museum to celebrate the wedding of a wonderful couple.
L & O wanted the halls to be filled with gorgeous seasonal tones of pink; to us, nothing could say this better than blossom trees filling the Hintze Hall. We used faux blossom trees, to create a fresh, Spring feel throughout the space that also complimented the design of the evening.
For the drinks reception in Waterhouse Way, we created spectacular faux wisteria tree that was used as an escort card tree for guests to find their places – a fantastic way to engage your guests while you have your photographs taken.
The wedding breakfast tables for guests in Hintze Hall were a mixture of round and long tables. For the rounds, we created fantastic tall urns on Perspex plinths; bringing height and gorgeous texture to the landscape of the room. On the long tables, we used clear glass, antique style bud vases to create an intricate and luscious runner of colour using roses, lilac, astilbe, sweetpeas and jasmine creating a gorgeous display of pink tones that also filled the table with a delicate scent. For height and added design detail, we used tall vases filled with similar flowers and twinkling crystal candelabra that dappled the soft the pink lighting onto the tables.
For the top table, we just had to do something a little different for this magical pair. We created a full runner of flowers that cascaded down the ends of the long table and pooled onto the mosaic floor for a magical and romantic aesthetic.
We lined the bannisters of the iconic staircase with a runner of luscious pink and cream flowers using roses, lilac, and hydrangea with touches of olive foliage to create softness and a more organic feel to the runner. Even Charles Darwin was adorned with beautiful flowers, we created a delphinium meadow around the base of his statue.
We loved this wedding so much, and the team were so proud of their work. The highlight for us (aside from our happy couple) was seeing our Creative Director, Ruari, sprinkling petals on the steps of Hintze Hall with all the joy of a man loving his work. Priceless.
