South African Inspired Florals at Elmore Court

When I was asked to create South African-inspired flowers for Elmore Court, I couldn’t have been more excited. The historic Cotswolds venue, with its light stone walls and wisteria-clad exterior, provides the perfect neutral backdrop to infuse heaps of colour and personality.

As I arrived at Elmore Court, the sun was shining across the grounds, the beautifully manicured walled gardens bursting with spring flowers after the heat of last week. I made my way to the Gillyflower, ready to inject the venue with the incredible plant life of South Africa.

TABLE DESIGNS 

To complement the maximalist South African decor featuring African prints, natural textures, and clashing visuals on the Gillyflower’s l tables, I added exotic, natural elements to accentuate the maximalist vibe. I created low designs using all the key flowers, resulting in an explosion of colour and texture, a real treat for each guest at this special event.

ENTRENCE

This was where we had the space to be extra creative! Using a large modern vase, I created a stunning display full of colourful tropical flowers. The different textures and shapes layered together created a modern, high-end floral installation bursting with colour. It had been such a treat sourcing the flowers and foliage for this unique brief, and seeing it come together like this made all the research and extra hours flower ordering worth it.

It was such a pleasure and a delight to work on this exciting cross-cultural fusion floral design. As a modern luxury wedding florist, I am used to working with briefs that are polar opposites in texture, look, feel, and colour palette back-to-back. But this is my first time within the same event. With years of experience working with alternative wedding couples and colourful, complicated designs, you can trust my knowledge of flowers, foliage, and colour to order the perfect mix of flowers that will bring your vision to life. If you have a surprise party, elopement, wedding, retirement party, or brand launch event and want showstopping floral arrangements, get in touch to find out how we can bring your floral vision to life.
