Liz and Keith’s intimate wedding took place at the charming One Restaurant and Lounge. I really love how this wedding turned out. The orange flowers complimented the stunning emerald green bridesmaids’ dresses to create rich jewel tones for this early October affair!
The Bridesmaids carried bouquets of Orange roses and Mokara orchids. We added gorgeous local dahlias to the Bride’s bouquet!

There’s not much time for blogging during the busy wedding season, but I’ll take a moment to share some beautiful spring/summer bouquets!!
Laura and Adam were married at his parent’s home just outside London. It is a spectacular property with sprawling lawns- perfect for an outdoor tent wedding! It was an incredibly hot July day (I must admit I was very tempted by their glistening blue pool), but the couple had planned for the heat and had two gigantic fans helping to keep the tent cool. From the looks of the photos, the heat didn’t bother anyone in the least! Congratulations Laura and Adam, I wish you all the best!
Laura’s bouquet was composed of dahlias, roses, orchids and celosia.
The bridesmaids carried similar bouquets except we also added in mini orange gerberas and green berries. Check out their neat dresses! (You may not be able to notice this detail in the photos, but the two-toned pink roses in the bouquets are the same two pinks found in the dresses!)
The men wore pink callas to compliment their ties.
The ceremony was held outdoors framed by an archway of gerberas and two large arrangements.
Inside the tent, we continued the bright and fun theme with square centerpieces of hydrangea, gerberas, roses and hypericum berries.
Always re-use! The ceremony arrangements served double duty when they became the backdrop. They held up really well too considering it was over 30 degrees!
I just love my job and that I get to play a part in such amazing events. Just look at the joy on this adorable bride’s face! Another fantastic and fun wedding!
Michelle was one of those brides that has a real talent for planning! (She has informed me that she is seriously contemplating wedding planning as a career, because she enjoyed the process so much! And she’d be good at it!) The wedding was in Hamilton at the Ancaster Old Mill (beautiful, romantic venue!), but we planned and created her flowers here in London. Michelle came to me with a specific colour scheme and all the details in place, except for her flowers which she needed a bit of help with. We worked with her colour palette of lively oranges, pinks and browns to create fresh and fun flowers that really popped against the October leaves!
The beautiful bride and her vibrant bouquet composed of garden roses, standard roses and pink hydrangea!
The couple was married in front of the beautiful stone fireplace. On the chairs were cones of flowers.
I just love the intimate setting and feel of the reception!
So I mentioned this bride is an exceptional planner…Check out how perfectly coordinated the reception table details are! The hot pink candles and orange packaged favours are a perfect compliment to the flowers. The centerpieces are created in a brown metal container with coordinating orange and pink ribbon detailing. By the way, the favours are lottery tickets!! I wonder if any guests left the wedding richer than they came!?

Jennifer’s parent’s farm outside London was an idyllic location for this July wedding! Jen’s bouquets were vintage inspired, but in the outdoor tent we went a bit more whimsical and introduced vibrant orange into the neutral colour palette! This wedding proves that an unexpected mix of colours and flowers can work out fabulously!
Jen’s bridal bouquet consisted of all pink peonies! The bride had her heart set on peonies even though it was a bit late in the season for them. We had our back-up flowers planned, but at the last minute I was able to inform Jen “We got our peonies!” I think we got the very last peonies available anywhere!
The fluffy peony bouquets really worked well with the wedding’s vintage feel and Jen’s gorgeous dress!
If the weather cooperates, nothing is more perfect than an outdoor ceremony. Check out the AMAZING tree that served as the ideal backdrop for this ceremony.
The bridesmaids carried bouquets of peonies, roses and freesia. The white with a hint of green really popped against their stunning blue dresses!
In the open tent, the centerpieces were a triad of vases composed of a unique mix of flowers. As the groom is Australian (Jen met Pete in Australia!), we incorporated a unique mix of succulents and pods that pay homage to warmer climates and brought a little of the feel of his homeland to this Canadian farm.
I’ll leave you with a few photos that capture the beauty of this outdoor country setting. (Love the red barns!)
Early August, Rema and Zhowan had their Friday ceremony at Windermere Manor and the next day they held their reception at Marconi Club. Friday was a beautiful and hot August day, perfect for an outdoor ceremony. Rema had thought in advance to provide all her guests with fans on their chairs in case it became a bit too hot for some. As I write this on a cold January day, I’d sure like some of that heat now!
Photos from the Friday ceremony at Windermere Manor.
The bride’s bouquet was made up of phaleanopsis orchids, cymbidium orchids, roses, and callas.
We dressed up the ribbon wrap by attaching Rema’s antique brooch. To compliment the bride’s bouquet, the groom wore a mini cymbid with a mini calla.
Orange was incorporated in the bridesmaids’ bouquets and the groomsmen boutonnieres. The Groomsmen wore orange callas while the bridesmaids carried bouquets consisting of roses, orchids, callas and berries.
I love the colours of this wedding. LOVE the richness of the bridesmaid’s dresses!
Some fantastic shots from the reception.
The cake was made by Razzle Dazzle. (They make such amazing cakes and cupcakes!) We decorated it with phaleanopsis and cymbidium orchids.
