I’m delighted to report that I have received my first ever celebrity endorsement!

Pirates of the Caribbean actor and well known stand-up comic Omid Djallili has become given me a wonderful review on Twitter – for which I am very grateful. As a small but growing local business, it was a huge boost to receive this.

I designed and made the flowers for Omid’s daughter Isabella who got married at Pembroke Lodge in January.

I was lucky enough to meet Omid and his lovely wife on the big day which was held at one of my favourite venues Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park  and what a nice family they are.

Omid commented that Flourishing Temple is the ‘best florist in London’ – what incredibly kind words!

His tweet is included above.

I was so pleased that the family loved the floral decorations as much as they did. A couple of my favourite shots are below and I’m hoping to add some more soon.

Isabella and I worked together closely in the lead up to the big day to come up with a choice of flowers that reflected a woodland, rustic theme to tie in with the rest of the wedding.

The Happy Couple

We chose Mosses, Populus Berries, Ivory Roses, Succulents and Ornamental Cabbages incorporating some beautiful natural rustic wooden logs for the centrepieces. See below:

Using Ornamental Cabbages added a quirkiness to the designs and was a beautiful choice as it’s a good seasonal option in the winter months.

We chose White Naomi Roses with a beautiful large fluffy head – a feature which makes them a great choice for any bridal bouquet. This helps to create a bold statement as part of the overall design., We opted for some stunning foliages which included a variation of luscious textures such as eucalyptus, olive and Wax Flower. This added greater depth into the design and an extra wow factor!

Lastly, thanks so much again to Omid, Isabella and family – it was such a pleasure to work with you and meet you all!

Best wishes to the happy couple in their new life!
