Gary and Marcus chose a strong black and white theme for their day and were looking for strong modern flowers that were just a little bit different. A ceremony at the Southampton Art Gallery was followed by an evening do at the Winchester Guildhall via a stop at a local restaurant. This was my first civil partnership and it was an absolute joy to work with Gary and Marcus on these stunning flowers.
Buttonhole of deep aubergine calla lily with leucadendron and loops and spires of black grass. The look is masculine, detailed and about as black as nature gets.
Wrist corsages of white lisianthus with black feathers for the female attendants.

Table centre of aubergine calla lilies, Black Bacarra and Grand Prix roses, leucadendron and rolled black tie leaves. The vase is lined with black tie leaves for a really strong and contemporary look. The deep burgundy is perfectly suited to the King Charles room at the Winchester guildhall.
Wild garden themed table centre using curly willow, ivy, roses, astilbe and lime chrysanthemums. These were used in softer Wintonian room. I loved these !

That just leaves me to say thank you so much Gary and Marcus for choosing me to design and create your flowers for you, it was an absolute pleasure. I hope you had a fabulous day and very many congratulations.
