In this post, I’m happy to feature photos of Grandirosa Floral Design Studio’s wedding flower designs at Brides The Show, which took place in London this month.
Brides the Show is taking place from September 30th to October 2nd 2016 at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. This wedding show is one of the best in London and so deserves a visit. It’s a perfect one-stop shop for brides-to-be. The place is bursting with inspiration for a perfect wedding! But could also be interesting for everyone who loves flowers, craft tutorials, and cute things.
NAFAS exhibit at the Chelsea flower show this year was impressive. It was colourful and creative, but what inspired me the most was their creative approach to space. Chelsea flower show is a place where everyone wants to exhibit and thus space is scarce. The show gathers crowds every year so space between installations feels especially narrow. This is really not fun for photographers. But NAFAS found a solution to the problem! They created an open-sided conservatory and filled it with various arrangements of different heights and sizes. This allowed photographers to take pictures from all points without any visual pollution from other stands to me this felt innovative.
This year the House of Hackney decided to celebrate the Chelsea Flower Show, and went big with it. They pretty much hosted an alternative flower show at the store, called the Bloom room. Over the weekend of the 28th May, their award-winning flagship store was transformed into a curated in-store oasis showcasing the best budding florists and growers along with some of the most exciting heavy weights of the scene. Featuring floral installations from such florists as That Flower Shop, Palais Flowers, Scarlet & Violet, The Flower Appreciation Society and Rebel Rebel.
It looks like organic flowers are back and they are here to stay. It is still true that UK flower production is lower than what it was in the 80’s, but let’s not overlook the growing popularity of locally grown flowers. British flower growers have been enjoying a renaissance with a continuous growth in demand for home grown flowers in the last five years, and it looks like this trend is only likely to continue.
Last week was a very special one here in London as the town was transformed into a big flower Carnaval because of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show!

So your Chelsea flower show ticket got lost in the post, what do you do now?. It is easier to solve this problem than you think, just read on.
Chelsea flower show can be a bit overwhelming especially if you are a big flower lover on a mission to document every little detail. Last year’s show was great and I really wanted to write a nice story about it but I was delaying and delaying until a year had passed. (Ha-ha this definitely went a bit too far). And so here goes one very delayed post.
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending an exclusive wedding showcase at the Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane titled “Once upon a fairytale” where a luxury florist Philippa Craddock presented new floral trends for the 2016 wedding season.
