There are just a few venues in central London that we haven’t worked in or haven’t heard of. That’s why when a new enquiry arrives with a previously unheard-of location we are exceptionally thrilled at the great opportunity.
First, we need to clarify that, however new to us The Royal Society of Arts seemed to be, it has been, in fact, a very well established institution, that had undergone a wonderful refurb. Note well, after a refurbishment a venue normally quickly becomes all the rage. The buildings of The Royal Society of Arts have been their home since 1774. Like many London wedding venues, it lives up to its standard with grand rooms and halls, tall ceilings and impressive period paintings and wall coverings. Just scroll down to admire the grandeur of this institution.
Some couples just know their own mind. We received clear specifics when it came for the number of arrangements but had a free hand at the colour, flowers and design decisions. Frances also asked for red roses in her flower arrangements.
The leading colour was red, with neighbouring purples, pinks and oranges. The choices weren’t accidental! We consequently stayed around the deeper tones for the romantic, rich and mysterious look, with occasional lighter oranges and pinks as accent colours to brighten the arrangements.
Starting with the ceremony, two large and round backdrop pedestal centrepieces sat at the top of the aisle. It’s a great tip to place larger structures at the end of the aisle as this place always gets photographed a lot. As for the reception, we all imagined a suspended floral chandelier made of fragrant jasmine and ruscus. It was quite a simple combo with a wonderful result! While the chandelier provided a focal point at the wedding breakfast room, the table centrepieces with their dancing scabiosas reaching towards the installation considerably livened up the tables.
Roses were the focal flowers. We contrasted them with clematis, sweet peas, anemones, lilac, hellebores and different foliage to complement the look. The bouquet was asymmetrical, modern and although large, it remained light. We have a soft spot for a perfect form!
And what did the bride think of the flowers?
"The team at Blooming Haus were absolutely outstanding and our wedding flowers were truly stunning! Would highly recommend their wonderful service for any occasion."
