Looking for something different? Look no further, this week's wedding flowers are brought to you by the genius of Simon J. Lycett, working with creative event company JustSeventy. Simon’s creativity and passion for flowers is equal to his infectious enthusiasm and warmth as a person and his team’s work here demonstrates why he’s become one of the UK’s best-loved floral decorators. Simon talked to PROMISE about his work, inspired by seasonal blooms and the surroundings at the wedding venue:
"When creating the floral design for Claire and Neil’s Wedding I was inspired initially by my meetings with Claire and her family, and also the beautiful urban setting they have chosen for their celebration.
The Chuppah needed to feel organic yet structured, and to have a subtle Spring theme - hence our abundant use of white blossoms. It also needed to be relatively simple, allowing the unique vistas across the river to Greenwich to remain unobstructed. We added a touch of the whimsical and the magical by creating canopy of silvery grey foliage over the aisle, hung with jam-jars of fairy-lights and petals. Guests will enjoy dinner seated at tables decorated with seasonal spring flowers in a gentle palette of dusky pale shades. Greys and black, antique pink and bursts of copper retain a modern, 21st Century feeling, whilst complimenting the vintage venue. Adding domes of fairy-lights and petals again gave a quirky, fun flourish!
The Bridal Bouquet was designed for a Bride who wasn’t a big fan of roses, and with the dress being an ivory white shade. Seasonally spectacular ranunculus and anemones give it an understated Springtime feel, with silvery grey foliage echoing the colouring of the ceremony setting, and again a few succulents giving an unexpected twist."
