Grand and Classy Wedding at the Hong Kong Club

A grand wedding for a classy couple held at the prestigious Hong Kong Club in Central.

We heart when a personal element is incorporated in a wedding. Sailing is the couple's passion so for the reception, we arranged a sailboat on a sea of flowers.

The focal point of the venue are these magnificent and breathtaking Roman style columns and arches which provide a perfect backdrop for the ceremony.

We pictured luxuriant flowers adorning the top of the columns with sumptuous garlands spiraling all the way down. And tada, here they are after we finished setting up! Heart the impact they created and how the flowers soften and warmed up the arches.

White lanterns with flowers graced the aisle and matching garland for the signing table.

To achieve a soft, romantic and natural look, we mixed blush Keira Garden Rose, white Spray Rose and Scabiosa with Japanese white Sweet Pea and soft pink Gomphrena for the bridal bouquet.

After the ceremony and cocktail, the venue was transformed for the dinner reception.

Tailormade compote centerpieces with Roses, Spray Rose, Phalaenopsis, Syringa, Tweedia and Dusty Miller arranged loosely in a natural garden style. Together with warm candles for guests to enjoy during dinner.

What a view during dinner, almost being transformed to a different era!

For the Head Table, Holland Scabiosa, Japanese Sweet Pea, Spiraea Cantoniensis and Gomphrena were also used. The bride loves rose gold colour so we gilded over 100 pillar candles and table numbers with rose gold leaf to go with the centerpieces. Think they are really photogenic and also added glamour amongst the soft colour flowers!

One last look at the arches, a little heartbreaking taking them down at the end of the night.

It has been delightful meeting the couple and such a huge honour to design for them and their Big Day. Hearty congrats and we wish you two a blessed, blissful and beautiful marriage!

Dreamy Parisian Wedding at Repulse Bay

Happy 2015 everyone! 

For pre-wedding pics, they engaged the talented Miss Jada Poon and hired our mint green bike as prop and we are in love with the pictures! We really heart how the sweetness, love and care between them are captured by Jada. So sharing a few dreamy ones from their engagement shoot first.

And now their wedding on a perfect sunny day at Repulse Bay! Caroline and Ivan gave us so much trust and freedom to design for them, we just have to go all out and gave their wedding all our hearts.

We were so excited when we learned that they wanted a Paris theme. As Verandah is an old colonial style building, the style works well with each. Paris was one of the most inspirational places to us and also took us back to happy floral adventures a few years ago,
So with the pictures and memories in mind, we started designing for the wedding.

For the welcome table, we dreamed away living in an apartment in Paris putting on makeup at a vanity table whilst listening to music, ready for a glamorous night out. So we sourced a vintage vanity table set and telephone and also filled a gramophone with flowers. Inside the glass cloche a blush Cire Trudon sculptural candle bought in Paris.

And imagine looking outside the window in the distance is the iconic Eiffel Tower.

The colour palette is elegant and dreamy white and blush. Over 1,000 stems of Hydrangea, David Austin Keira and White O'hara Garden Roses, our most beloved blush Quicksand Rose and Bombastic Spray Rose, White Mikado Spray Rose, Lily of the Valley and 600 stems of Japanese Sweet Pea were used for the day!!!

The ceremony faces the Secret Garden and we envisioned something that feel like part of the garden but of course a prettier and tailormade version. Flowers were arranged in 2 large urn arrangements and an arch with a hanging mini crystal chandelier.

One of the first things you notice with a lot of the chateau and palaces in France is grand entrance iron cast gates, so we proposed a pair of gates with the couple's monogram for the start of the aisle.

A peek during the ceremony. With the flowers and plants along the aisle, it was like entering and walking through the couple's intimate, cozy and private garden.

Signing the marriage certificate, the couple was just beaming ear to ear the whole day.

1 May each year is La Fête du Muguet (Lily of the Valley Day) when French men give their sweethearts sprigs of Lily of the Valley as a token of love and affection, so we think it is the perfect choice for the bridal bouquet. Mono Lily of the Valley bouquet is the epitome of elegance!

Bridesmaids wore beautiful soft mint green dresses and held Japanese white sweet pea bouquets. Simple, dreamy and elegant and both flowers got such gorgeous fragrance!

We adore doggies and one of our Inspiration Mondays boards was dedicated to Wedding Pets. Huge soft spot particularly for Golden Retrievers and Westies and we were overjoyed when we learned the couple's sweet dog would be joining the ceremony, so we made her a darling floral collar.

When we see a certain item again and again in weddings, we just think why not be a little creative and come up with a different way of doing the same thing. Instead of photo albums for guests to flip through, we displayed engagement photos in large frames sitting amongst soft-colour flowers.

Not only are the plants along the aisle and the pair of gates pretty but they were also practical and together with candles, they were moved to dress up the stairs of Verandah as the sun set ready for the reception.

Guests spend most of the time at the table for the reception, so centerpieces are a key element in any nice weddings. Given it was a dinner affair held inside Verandah and the vibe is more elegant, so we suggested a set of silver ornate teapot filled with flowers. Place settings also make such a huge difference! Together with the individual menu and place cards, a stem of sweet pea adorned each guest's place setting.

Locks and keys on the Lovers' Bridge are another element that remind people of Paris and the couple chose such as their wedding favour. Instead of a standard box with paper filler as packaging, we designed something unique, placing the set in a glass jar with some beads instead and really pleased with how they turned out.

Glamorous tall silver candelabra centerpieces for the head tables in the center.

Last but not least, we added a little thoughtful touch for the ladies, a vintage tray with makeup items for touching up, scented Lollia candle and hand cream in the washroom.

Great to work with the superb wedding planning team of White Bridal again. Credit for table plan, menu, place cards and of course, ensuring the whole day was without a hitch goes to White Bridal.

Extremely grateful and excited to start off the year with such a gorgeous wedding and so much love from the couple. Sweet words from the bride : 
"Thank you for making our wedding day so special. The decorations and the flowers were so much more beautiful than I could have imagined. Thank you for all the unique ideas, as well as all the efforts and attention to detail. There is nothing more a bride could have asked for. You truly did make our dream wedding come true."

Hearty congrats to Caroline and Ivan and may your marriage and all your days ahead be as joyful and sweet as your wedding day!!

Romantic Purple Wedding at Four Seasons Hotel

Happy Sunday, everyone!

It was such fun meeting the bride, Stephanie, and designing for her wedding. After deciding on the colour palette - various shades of purple and ivory with a little green, we were hyped to find out that she loves birdcages as much as we do and knew this is going to be a very special wedding.

The ceremony was held at the Peak Suite of Four Seasons Hotel and here is the setup...

2 large birdcages were tailor made and brimming with flowers inside and out.

Love how the birdcages turned out. Flowers include a luscious mix of Hydrangea, Roses, Spray roses, Lisianthus, Tulips, Ageratum, Snow-on-the-Mountain and a very special vine - Passion Flower / Passiflora.

We used Passion Flower before for our tablescape design in New York and have been missing it every since. They were in season and so we ordered them from Holland. Even just their leaves, curly tendrils and buds are gorgeous and we love the way they cascaded loosely over the birdcages. Their blooms only last for about half a day and one opened up right before the ceremony so we placed it on the signing table.

For dinner reception at the Harbour View Ballroom, the birdcages were moved to the entrance and together with warm candles, welcomed the guests.

Continuing with the theme, birdcages on wreaths of flowers for the reception table.

We also designed a wall with fresh flower and foliage for taking pics with guests in the cocktail area.

And now one of the most important elements for any memorable wedding - centerpieces! Birdcage candle holders adorned all the tables. For the flowers, the bride wished that guests could take home some of the flowers at the end of the evening, so we made hand-tied bouquets placed in vases.

And for the head table...

The set of birdcages in ivory with a hint of gold matched with the table linen and place settings perfectly. To create a different look, we filled them with flowers instead of using them as candles holders.

A peek before dinner started.

A matching backdrop set the stage inside the ballroom.

And a few pictures of the personal flowers by one of our favourite photographer, Jada Poon.

Stephanie wore a stunning long red lace dress for the tea pouring ceremony and we did a bouquet with antique pink Garden Rose, hot pink and pastel pink Spray Roses, Asclepias, Bouvardia and Galax Leaf to go with the dress. 

We love how the purple bouquets provide a pop of colour against the white bridal gown and bridesmaids dresses without being overpowering.

Stephanie wore an elegant bridal gown, we suggested a vintage purple bouquet to go with it, which consisted of vintage lilac Garden Rose, lilac Rose, our favourite blush cream Spray Rose, purple Hydrangea and Nigella aka Love-in-a-Mist seed capsule.

As the bridesmaids dresses are more playful, so their bouquets are more of a garden style in matching shades of purple with ivory and green. 

And last but not least, an awesome video by T.Art Videographyclick on the picture to take a look!

This wedding was a dream came true. Stephanie gave us creativity freedom to design all the details for her, so when you have a client like this, you just have to go all out!! It had been an absolute privilege to be involved in this wedding and we are super grateful for the bride's trust and support. 

We are glad that Stephanie & Thomas had such a beautiful and memorable wedding to mark the start of their new lives together and we wish them a blissful marriage for the many years to come!!
