Colourful Spring Wedding Flowers at the London Rowing Club

Beth+Harry

Beth and Harry requested chic and colourful flowers for their April wedding at the Thames Rowing Club in Putney, London. As a London wedding florist based in south west London, we adore creating floral arrangements for local weddings, and Putney is right around the corner from our studio.

The couple’s colour theme was “The Best of Spring”, with the focus on yellows, oranges, and apricot shades, plus pops of whites and blues. Into the Wild Florist surpassed their brief by designing a selection of truly seasonal wedding floral arrangements using the couple’s very favourite blooms, including Poppies, Ranunculus, Daffodils and Snowdrops. Beth’s spring bridal bouquet included a mixture of yellows and apricots which looked stunning in contrast with her white silhouette.

On the Day

With the sun warming the morning air and a buzz of rowing activity on the Thames, our team arrived early to decorate the rooms. To offer guests the perfect welcome and set the tone for the day, we covered the entrance and stairs with scented foliage – including wild Jasmine and Eucalyptus – with each step adorned with an array of delicate spring flowers. As the guests moved upstairs, they were met with a sunshine-dappled room filled with intoxicating floral colours and perfumes. For the ceremony, Beth had requested an outdoorsy floral experience, so we covered the window sills, mantlepieces and other surfaces with arrangements delicately styled to bring a wild meadow vibe to the venue.

Flowers for the Ceremony Backdrop

For the ceremony, we filled both mantlepieces with seasonal flowers in abundance, cascading across the paintings and down to the tables. The long table was used to continue the wildflower theme, using small delicate bud vases combined with low ceramic runners full of tall dancing poppies. This arrangement created a unique backdrop for Harry and Beth’s vows, as well as being picture perfect for photos too.

The Reception Flowers

All the flowers were repurposed for the wedding reception. The long wooden reception tables were arranged in a U-shape and the mass of bud vases were placed centrally down the tables and filled with scented and naturally-styled sweet peas, ranunculus and narcissi. These elegant floral centrepieces popped with colour against the blue linen and tableware, and created a gorgeous contrast of heights and textures. During the wedding breakfast, Beth and Harry and their family positioned themselves in front of the floral decorated mantlepiece, ensuring that it continued to be featured in all of their wedding photos for the day.

Styling the Seasons

Together, Beth and Into the Wild spent time planning the styling and general feeling for the day – ensuring that the flowers were curated to match the invitation, the table linen complimented the flowers, and all the elements worked in harmony. We loved the natural, joyful and informal feel of the day – the choice of flowers was perfect for such a grand occasion, and truly matched Beth and Harry’s personalities too. As we understood from the outset, the colours and floral arrangements were one of the most important elements for their big day, and Beth will tell you just how pleased she was in her own words…

“I could not be more delighted with the flowers! Thank you so much Jennifer. They got so many compliments, smelt incredible and brought much joy to the occasion.” ~Beth.
