A November Christening in London
We were delighted when a client, Lucinda Aumonier, approached us to work with her. Lucinda was looking to create beautiful arrangements for the christening of her daughter, Rose.
Here is a selection of photos from the day. I hope you will enjoy them.
The christening was held in a marquee at her private home in London. Lucinda wished to use a stunning colour palette of soft pinks and greens for the arrangements. Inspired by her daughters name, we used a mix of predominately roses and spray roses with complimentary flowers and foliages.
Vintage-style white birdcages were used to create table centrepieces and for hanging installations within the marque.
For the hanging installations we filled the birdcages with gypsophila. Gypsophila symbolises innocence and everlasting love. We used lots of beautiful soft pink velvet ribbons to add softness to the arrangements. The birdcages were hanging in clusters, creating two focal points in the marquee. The end result looked super, as they unintentionally looked like hanging bells.
For the table centrepieces we filled the birdcages with a large church pillar candle circled with flowers. We wanted the arrangements to have a hand picked, English garden look. To achieve this we used Sweet avalanche roses, spray roses, astilbe, astrantia, gypsophila, fresh cut figs, rosemary, flowering eucalyptus and scenecio. We chose to add rosemary as it lends a beautiful scent, as well as complimenting Rose’s name!
