My McQueens Wedding: Charlotte & Joe

Charlotte and Joe Fogel got married at Grosvenor Chapel in June 2016 and had a dream wedding reception at Claridge’s in Mayfair. Creating flowers for a wedding is quite an undertaking, and the process starts a long time before the actual wedding. One thing we really like is getting to know our clients over that period of […]

Bridal Hand-Tied Bouquet

The ubiquitous hand-tied bouquet has been the mainstay in bridal flower design for much of the past 25 years, and it’s easy to see why. The technique of arranging flowers in the hand is endlessly versatile and the construction, packaging and robustness of this design makes it the failsafe option for modern brides. But wonderful as hand-tied […]

Dress to Impress: Buttonhole & Corsage

Flowers have been used throughout history to adorn the body and clothes for special events and ceremonies. The tradition continues today with buttonholes and corsages worn for grand occasions such as weddings, formal dinners and events. They are reserved for the most special soirées, so ordering them is not an every day occurrence. This means that […]

My McQueens Wedding: Rod and Emma

Emma Edwards & Rod Palmer got hitched in October at Islington Town Hall and the reception was held at Chiswell Street Dining Rooms.

Exquisite […]

My McQueens Wedding: Julie Andrews

It was a very modern affair, as Julie Andrews explains,when she wed Mark Collings at Plateau in Canada Square last month. The venue partly dictated the theme for our wedding. It is floor to ceiling glass – angular lines, slap bang in the middle of Canary Wharf’s Canada Square – so it felt natural that the flowers […]

My McQueens Wedding – William & Simon

William Matthews & Simon Branney were married at Chelsea Town Hall, London, and celebrated with their families afterwards at The Connaught Hotel, Mayfair.  They stayed at Claridge’s.
