Zoe & Mike’s Vintage Wedding at the Andaz Hotel London

Zoe’s vintage bouquet with lots of texture made from amnesia roses, snowberries, hydrangea and dahlia

You can probably tell that I love English foliage, berries and blowsy flowers, and making arrangements with lots of texture and movement. So for Zoe and Mike’s vintage wedding back in September, I was able to go for it!

Zoe and Mike didn’t want a theme or even a colour scheme, instead they told me to go to the market in the morning and get everything that caught my eye that would work. We were going for a vintage look with textured, unstructured arrangements.

There’s a fine line between the vintage and country looks, and we didn’t want it to go into shabby territory as the venue was the oh-so stylish Andaz Hotel in Liverpool street.  So to make sure the flowers were in keeping with the stunning 1901 room, all the containers were vintage glass from my collection. We had cake-stands, clusters of little eclectic vases and jugs, with the focal point of the Reception being the long top table dressed from end to end with glass vases. Here are some of the highlights, enjoy!
