Dartmouth House wedding venue

One of my most favourite places to flower for a wedding is the wonderful Dartmouth House.. set in the heart of Mayfair, it has a lovely history and is currently the home of the English Speaking Union. But it is also a truly fabulous venue in which to get married

From the magnificent staircase that takes you to the first floor reception and ceremony rooms to the enclosed and private terrace, it is a stunning building that is all yours once you step over the threshold

Here is Charlotte with her bridesmaid and sister after getting married to Sean last year

The landing on the staircase is the perfect place for a welcome urn and the panelled Churchill Room is ideal for saying your vowsceremony flowers by blue sky flowers at dartmouth house

Dartmouth House Wedding

This December was one of the busiest I have ever known … seven weddings in total over 3 weekends! We were full on for three weeks, prepping, making, clearing and dishing out some Christmas displays in between! All good fun though and we came through with flying colours, I think, with some amazing weddings to look back on

Here is a preview of part of our December 5th schedule, a beautiful wedding at Dartmouth House, one of our favourite venues in central London and one that is so easy to look fabulous

Lauren was based overseas when we first met and talked flowers back at the beginning of 2015. We liaised quite a lot via email, catching up on flying visits where possible and then finally we went to the flower market to make choices on the flowers to use on the day itself

Roses, Hydrangea, Freesia, Phlox, Waxflower and Ranunculas featured heavily throughout giving a crisp fresh look to the flowers offset beautifully by fragrant silvery grey Eucalyptus foliage

The Churchill Room which is used for ceremonies at Dartmouth House is a striking but somewhat dark space … it was refreshing to see it lightened enormously by the change of chairs to these beautiful whitewashed Chivari ones adorned with delicate bunches of Gyp with organza ribbons

The white flower theme continued through to the reception in the Long Drawing Room and we dressed the fabulous staircase with a large urn of seasonal flowers to welcome guests as they arrived

It was a beautiful day, with a beautiful bride in a beautiful setting … what more do you need? x


Pretty Spring wedding at Dartmouth House

For this wedding at the beautiful Dartmouth House, the bride wanted a very delicate, romantic colour palette without going down the ‘vintage pink’ route

So we chose the super fragrant ivory Norma Jean Rose and paired it with the soft pink of Sweet Avalanche – which is probably this year’s favourite Rose so far amongst brides

We dressed the magnificent marble staircase with one of our new stone plinths topped with a silver urn filled with a selection of seasonal flowers – white Hydrangea, ivory Delphinium, white Stocks and large headed Secret Garden Roses

To complement the stunning decoration in the first floor Drawing Rooms, we used silver candlesticks topped with balls of ivory Hydrangea. pale pink Secret Garden Roses, blush pink Majolika spray Roses and creamy Lisianthus with  fragrant Eucalyptus and berried Ivy foliage and elegant glass cake stands with a mix of similar flowers

Dartmouth House doesn’t need much decoration to make it look beautiful but we think this combination does enhance it, just a little!
