Flower design

We like weddings and all conencted preparations. Brides usually have certain visions, how their dream day should look like and we help them to realize it. Especially we like to create the design, the theme and with this are of course connected flowers.

Some brides have clear ideas  how the flowers should look like and just send us pictures, another know just the favourite colour or flower and some brides are opened to any ideas. It of course very much depend on the venue, certain venues just need certain decor, but there are also many venues where you can play with, like Mandarin Oriental. This light space invites to create beautiful wedding decorations. We have already arranged there pure white decor, mix of pale shades, orange and this time the instruction was purple and white, certain shades of purple and mix of flowers.

We were absolutelly excited by this wedding, as well as all the guests, even the mum of the groom said it is better then Mandarin Oriental in Paris, which made us really proud. What else to say – we worked with  roses, fresia, hydrangeas, scabiosa, tullips, antirrhinum and dahlias.

We would like to give our big thanks to aazing Petra and Julien, who gave us amazing opportunitiy to organise their wedding amd wish them all the best!

Petra and Julien

We did really enjoy wedding of Petra and Julien, it was one of the most beautiful weddings we have ever organised. Petra is pretty model, living in Congo, Africa, with her husband Julien, who is French.  We all did really enjoy this wedding, it was very pretty, all the guests were nice and had fun until the morning, as we did as well.

Petra got in touch with us in April this year, when she came to visit her family in Brno. She came for one day to Prague to look around the city and because they both love Mandarin Oriental hotel, we met directly there. Question was ceremoy venue – Petra wouldn´t mind some nice garden, but preference was ceremony in a catholic church. They asked for a church nerby the hotel, where the ceremony can be served both in Czech and French. Then it was easy -  St. Thomas church at Mala Strana. We really like this church, it is beautiful inside and the monks who are living there are superb.  Before Petra went back to Brno, we booked the church for the ceremony, French speaking priest and of course Mandarin Oriental. We like when things are going fast and smooth, which was this case. Big day was settled – September 1st.

Petra came back to Congo and because connection there isn´ t that perfect, we were mainly waiting for her next visit. Petra only asked us to choose some nice wedding invitation, we were very pleased, but also worrying – what if she doesn´t like it….She did really trust us, we were so honoured and wanted the best for them. There wasn´t any reason to worry – Petra did really like it and the company arranged also other printigns – name tags and menu cards. It was very stylish and elegant.

At next visit we came to see the florist, where Petra again presented her excellent taste – she likes purple, but only certain shades, certain flowers. She is very beautiful, but not much romantic type, which we liked – her style was very chic, elegant (no wonder, her husband is French J). Petra again pleased us by her trust – she gave us free hands to create flower design. It was big challenge for us and we did agree that we will create  something special for her. Not to forget – Petra also chose her wedding dress in Prague, so we made last fitting and ordered jewellry and shoes.

Next visit of Petra was in July, this time together with Julien. They stopped at French consulate to obtain paperwork for Julien, we met at Mandarin with the florist, DJ and also arranged wine and food tasting. Petra and Julien really love their families and friends and decided to pay them rooms at Mandarin on the wedding night. Petra and Julien of course chose amazing Presidential suite with its lovely terrace and view.

Again time was running so fast and end of August was here.  Petra arrived with Julien a few days before the wedding to have hair and make-up trial, take pre-wedding pictures and go to the registry office. Unfortunatelly bad things hapen sometimes…Petra has lovely sweet kitty Matysek and he got sick. She loves him so much and such a pain came just few days before her big day…As far as we know, Matysek makes a bit better now and we really hope he will be fine and keep all our fingers crossed.

Petra and Julien also met father Ventura, their priests, who is really caling person. We knew all is prepared.

Some of the guests arrived already on Friday, especialy those who live in Congo or France, Czech family and friends started to arrive on Sat morning.  We decided to change completelly the design of the Monastery hall, where was supposed to be served cocktail before the dinner, so vendors started to arrive on Friday morning with furniture and tables. The colour scheme was purple and white, all flowers were purple and white and furniture was white. We rented snow white sofas and little cute cushions, also in white. Beige carpets were removed, as well as chairs, we just left there some of their sofas.  Very important areclightings – they create special atmosphere and can change completelly look of the space. We added extra lights to the Monastery hall and also to the Grand Ballroom, where the dinner was served.

Good mood was at the hotel since the morning. Stylist arrived around 10.00 a.m. and Petra and her 2 friends spent couple nice hours with him, while drinking Cosmopolitan.  We arrived to the church already early in the morning to bring there flowers, as there was another wedding before ours and we wanted to have it all prepared. At 11.00 started brunch for all guests, but weather wasn´t perfect, so we decided to move it to the Monastery hall, rather then outside. The hall was already prepared with all furniture and decor and peple really liked it.

But sun came out again in the afternoon, so guests didn´t leave the hotel in a rain. First arrived groom with his mum and best men in lovely vintage Rolls Royce, the car then returned back to the hotel to pick up bride and her father. All guests used minibuses to the church.

Church was lovely as well – white carpet was placed down the aisle, tall vases with mixture of white flowers were place dat the beg and end of the aisle, surrounded by rose petals. Roses, fresia, hydranges, scabiiosa, white tulips as a detail (are not very big in Sept), antirrhinum created elegant design with a focus on details.  Bridal bouquet was mainly white with pale purple touch, using roses, fresia and little hydrangeas and dendrobium.  White rose with white ribbon was used for groom, both fathers had also white rose, but with purple ribbon, best men and groomsmen had purple roses. Bridesmaids had lovely bouquets made from roses, hydrangeas and fresia, mix of purple shades.

When bride arrived to the church, all the guests were already seated and priest just came for groom and his mum to escort them to the altar. Organs played romantic Wedding march by Mendelssohn when amazing bride entered with her father.  Couple decided to have short ceremony without holy mass, so after around half and hour we left the church. There is beautiful courtyard, great for pictures, so we made there couple family portraits and also group picture.

Everyone was then already hungry, so newlyweds left the church in Rolls Royce and together with photographer went to the Prague castle to enjoy romantic photosession. The other photographer and guests used the buses back to the hotel, where was already prepared cocktail with tasty canapees and different cocktails. People had great time while taling toether and enjoying drinks. Newlywds arrived in about 45 min and were powdered by rose petals from the guests. We took some more pictures and because cocktail took more then 2 hours, some guests left to get changed and relax a bit.

We all met at 7.30 at the Monastery hall, which was already lighted and also delicious sweet bar was prepared there. We also prepared small table for guest book and placed there frames with pics of the couple. Guests received glass of Champagne and when everyone arrived, we opened the doors to the Grand Ballroom. It was so beautiful. Romantic lighting created very special atmosphere together with candles on the tables. And flowers – at each round table we placed silver vases with different shape and height, each vase had different flowers in, mixed on the tables. All were in combination of white and purple. Candles were in different candleholders, also different heights. Table numbers were placed in silver frames.  Especially one detail was very pretty – simply folded napkin was tied with purple ribbon, with a beautiful silver broche on it. There were 2 different types of broches mixed on the tables. One corner at the dancing floor was made as a lounge area, with tall construction with drapes, 2 sofas  and little cushions. Also big screen for video disco couldn´t miss there…

Around 10.00 pm. was time for the cake cutting and  also for the first dance. Cake had 3 layers, square shape, with white chocolate swirls placed around each layer, with lilla ribbon and fresh flowers inbetween. Cake was very light, with not much pastr,y but lots of fruit (raspberry mousse with fresh raspberries, passion fruit, cheesecake with strawberries) and was very nice. Guests did also enjoy a lot sweet bar, we were really happy that especially grandmum from Moravia, known for great pastry, came so many times for sweets J. Pastry chef made also home-made macaroons, which couple asked for. Not to forget – little cute boxes with wedding almonds in silver colour were delivered by groom´s mum and placed on the tables.

Word at the end – we are very lucky that we got a chance to organise wedding for so many great couples. Petra and Julien definitelly belong to them and we did really enjoy their wedding from the beg to the end. It wasn´t just a work, we were part of a nice day for lovely couple and we were very happy for it. Petra is really nice lady, not only really beautiful, but also nice person – always smiling, calm and smart. The same is her husband, we were in touch mainly with Petra, but from those little moments we recognised how great men Julien is. We wishing you all the best in your life.
