We have been booked to decorate for a variety of events at the Gherkin Tower during 2015/16. The first of the Autumn season took place earlier this month on a most glorious sunny day.
Ann, one of our most experienced Floral Designers took the lead in preparing very pretty button holes for the Groom and his best men – using Ivy, Astranthia and Snowberry.
Our delivery van was so packed with wedding vases and an assortments of flowers and greenery that there was only enough room for our driver. The rest of us followed in taxis.
Interestingly, the Bride didn’t want a bouquet but instead wanted lots of tall vases overflowing with flowers and greenery, one for each guest table, two for the Registrar desk and finally a larger arrangement for the lobby area on the 39th floor. The lobby space would be the first glimpse that guests would have of the wedding decorations; for this reason we created a very lush and a much taller arrangement for maximum impact.
The Registrar flower vases graced the foreground of magnificent vistas of London on the 39th floor. What a wonderful distraction for our Floral Designers!
Following the Registrar Ceremony the wedding guests climbed a short flight of stairs to the 40th floor for an official blessing. During this short period both Searcy’s and Flor Unikon staff helped to transform the Registrar setting to a lush dining room.
The Wedding table vases looked equally stunning, with Thlaspi, Laurel, Hydrangeas and Avalanche Roses.
