There are so so many super talented florists in London. I personally love photographing whimsical wedding flowers. These are my top three favs!
Still Life Flowers, Holborn Studios, 49-50 Eagle Wharf Road, N1 7ED
I take the time to understand all the contributing elements that will impact the flowers themselves, be it the backstory of the bride and groom, or the venue decor and lighting scheme of an event. This helps me to create the best design outcome whilst capturing the essence of the occasion. My work has been described as painterly, often reminding people of the Dutch Master paintings. This style of painting along with colour blocking and composition is what inspires my style and in turn inspired the name of the company. I let the flowers dictate their own positioning, working with the natural shapes they provide me with to create movement and organic shapes.

Drawing on the worlds of art and fashion rather than traditional florist designs, Grace & Thorn plays with unique combinations of textures and patterns so no two pieces are ever the same. An asymmetrical style and focus on foliage has attracted a cult following across London. Grace & Thorn now has roots in Hackney, Soho and Brick Lane with clients all over the UK.
PALAIS specialises in romantic and natural floristry always with a touch of the unexpected. We pride ourselves in sourcing the best seasonal flowers and foliages for our arrangements. Palais’ arrangements are bold and playful often referencing opulent dutch still life painting but with a kitsch and modern twist.
PALAIS was founded by Emma Weaver in 2013 who left her career as set designer in order to follow her passion for all things floral. Emma’s background in textiles, fine art and set design greatly inform her work as a florist.
