Kensington Reds

Traditional reds with a contemporary edge. We loved this look for an end of season celebration hosted by a sports team in the King’s Gallery at Kensington Palace. Sumptuous velvety red roses, burgundy skimmia, astrantia and deep green leaves were offset by our elegant crystal candelabra and a minimalist glass table top and tableware from… Read More


Celebrations in the City

We love a city celebration and were delighted when we heard that Fortnum & Mason at the Royal Exchange were set to host weddings and wanted our flowers for a photoshoot to set the scene. We designed three looks, one for spring, one for autumn and another using dried grasses for any time of year,… Read More


Sunset Dreams

Burnt orange, saffron yellow, dusky pink and lots of gorgeous, tropical inspired texture. A dream look for a wedding at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew in sultry late afternoon sunshine. We combined fiery orange heliconia and pincushion protea with gloriosa curcuma and added nerines and alliums with their firework shaped petals for a nod to… Read More


Micro Wedding Magic

It’s fair to say this year has been one of uncertainty and challenge for everyone, including our couples who have had to move their wedding dates, postphone indefinitely or radically adapt their dream day into something that looks completely different. It’s been our greatest honour to help our couples navigate through this time, and the… Read More


A Tale of Two Venues

Last year, a lovely bride came to visit us not too long before her wedding. She had two venues to dress, one for her ceremony and the second for a fabulous party the next day. For both venues she wanted rich late summer colour, but different schemes to suit each vibe. Her ceremony and wedding… Read More


Urban Garden Style

Back in February we were lucky enough to take care of a gorgeous Spring wedding for a couple with taste that was totally on our wavelength. The bride, Ellie, had a vision of a glorious colour clash; burgundy, berry pink, coral, orange, with wild organic shapes. We used the best of the season; poppies, ranunculus,… Read More


Intimate Socially-Distanced Wedding at The RSA

On the 19th September 2020, the Mary Jane Vaughan team decorated our first venue-based socially distanced wedding celebration, at Georgian Grade II listed gem, RSA House. The RSA House events team had organised logistics to ensure safety measures were adhered to with staggered arrival times, digital temperature checks and a socially distanced layout for the… Read More


A Stylish London Affair at RSA House

In RSA House, a gorgeous gem of Georgian architecture just off The Strand, Becky and Ross had their elegant Winter wedding. When Becky and her Mum first came to meet with us, Becky knew exactly the type of stylish impact that she and Ross wanted to create in The RSA’s stunning rooms. Plenty of blousy… Read More


Statement Style at Kew Gardens Wedding

Last July, we created a lush fusion wedding look for gorgeous couple Anna and Alain. In their first meeting they said that they wanted to combine floral elements of Bermuda, China and the UK, in a very natural, organic way. The end result was a striking combination of structural orchids, pops of garden colour, and sweeping boughs… Read More


Cambridge Cottage Spring Wedding

Velvety roses, deep berry ranunculas, tulips, narcissus, aubergine anemones, skimmia and the prettiest dusting of star shaped jasmine flowers – a truly seasonal combination for a spring wedding at Cambridge Cottage Kew. We love the delicacy and timeless romance of the designs that suit Anna the bride so perfectly. She told us afterwards that she… Read More
