Today our flowers are on the front page of our favourite wedding blog, the delicious Style Me Pretty, and we are over the moon!
It’s all thanks to Chloe from Caught the Light, and Anne-Marie & Allan, who chose us to flower their amazingly pretty day.
The gorgeous (and extra lovely) couple married last year at the ICA and their day was filled with beautifully bright blooms just about everywhere.
Bouquets were filled with Coral Charm peonies, dahlias, roses, stocks, sweet peas and alchemilla mollis, all tied up with stripey ribbon, whilst the men got fab, mismatched buttonholes.
We used the same combinations of flowers to fill the vintage jars along the aisle, the animal vases on the registrar’s and guest tables, and the fireplaces. Perhaps our favourite bit of the whole wedding were the striking hanging flowers – a mix of jewel bright blooms, wisteria and amaranthus suspended from twisted willow. How we loved it all!
Thank you to the gorgeous and ever so talented Chloe from Caught the Light who took the beautiful photos. Chloe’s pictures always make me smile – lots.

Happy March you lovely lot. I can’t believe we’re over half way through it already.
We have been back for a couple of weeks from a delightful holiday- with brown feet and a clear head. Mostly.
Our first wedding of Spring was Eleanor and Ben’s beautifully bright big day at Hampton Court House. Eleanor wasn’t a fan of foliage, but loved ranunculus, garden roses and all things pink, orange and coral, so that’s exactly what she got.
A lot of brides shy away from brighter colours at Hampton Court House, but you shouldn’t. It can take it.
Yesterday Eleanor sent a very lovely thank you, and some pretty pictures from their photographer, Claire Lau. I just had to share them. The first photo makes me super happy, Ben’s reaction on seeing his bride is the cutest. And how beautiful did Eleanor look?
I loved working with Eleanor and Ben so much. The biggest love and congratulations to you both.

The first month of the year is usually a quiet one for us flower types. A lot less weddings, with brides slowly getting back in to planning mode.
This January however has been crazily hectic for us. We flowered pretty weddings (pictures to come soon), been involved with several magazine photoshoots, and we’ve met up with lots of gorgeous brides (and flower loving grooms too) – both those who have already booked with us, and brand spanking new couples. There were venue visits, trips to flower markets and many coffees consumed. The month whizzed past.
And so to February. Another lovely wedding flowered in Shoreditch, lots more meetings and today, I’m off on my annual escape to rest my flowery fingers, clearing my head for another amazing year ahead. I’m a better person when I get back. With lovely brown feet.
We’ve been lucky enough to be booked for lots of super stunning weddings this year, and can’t wait to start all the planning with our beautiful brides.
If you do want to get in touch about your wedding flowers, then feel free to drop me an email, and I will get back to you as soon as I’m home.
Have a lovely couple of weeks x Steph
My design fairy was left with my 2014 Instagram photos, his Mac and a whole lot of tunes.
I went to the gym. He made this.
Flowers really did fill every single day of 2014. It was a decidedly fragrant year.
2014 was a super stunning year for us at fairy towers. Incredibly hard work, but oh so rewarding.
We made flowers for 92 beautiful weddings, appeared in various bridal magazines and blogs, prettied up some stunning events and worked with lots and lots of talented wedding folk.
We’ve also managed to gather a whole host of lovely new followers on Instagram, and likes on our Facebook page, which always makes me smile.
Knowing people like our flowers means the world to us.
So on to 2015.
We’ve got some utterly delicious weddings booked all over London, Surrey and Hampshire with lots further afield. We do like a change of scenery, although I’m thinking about asking to move in to Hampton Court House and Aynhoe Park this year as we have lots of lovely bookings in both venues.
I’m still waiting to quote on a Maldivian wedding, but I have every faith that the call will come. Won’t it?!
A huge thank you for every bit of support this year. From all my flower fairies that have helped create the prettiness, each one of our 92 wonderful couples, and every one that has liked or commented on Facebook, Instagram, email or read the blog.
We hope that you all had a perfect 2014, and 2015 is even more magical.
…from all of us at fairy towers.
May your Christmas be full of gifts, giggles, gin and good company.
Much love x Steph
I’ve always loved this magazine. And for florists, it is extra special when you are featured – either in the Flower Notebook, wedding advice or Real Weddings.
We have been lucky enough to appear in all of these section, but it’s Real Weddings where you will find our fleurs, in the latest November/December edition.
I can’t wait to feature the whole wedding (as it was super special) on the blog very soon, but I’m glad that Wedding Flowers magazine thought it was pretty too.

What a year it’s been at fairy towers. I didn’t realise that we will have broken the 90 wedding mark by the time Christmas arrives this year.
So that’s why I haven’t had time to write many blog posts of late! Sorry.
2014 has passed by in a delightful daze of gorgeous brides (and grooms), super stunning venues, and thousands upon thousands of beautiful blooms.
As weddings begin to calm a little, we are starting to work on our brand spanking new website. It’s about time I know. We have after all, been talking about it for the last two years. I promise, good things come to those who wait…
And so on to my little plea.
If you’re reading this, and we have already flowered your wedding, or you are one of the amazing photographers we have worked with, then it would be wonderful if you could get in touch with some of your lovely photos for us to feature, both here on the blog, and on the new site.
It would be ace. And we will make you all a badge. And a hat.

The ever so lovely Katie and Billy married earlier this year at one of my favourite venues ever – Hampton Court House. And what a delightfully wonderful wedding it was.
Flower crowns, sequins, peonies, a beautiful bride, a dapper groom and wonderful weather. It gets no better.
Oh and add to that little list, a host of amazing suppliers. The fab Cam and Pen at Mckinley-Rodgers were in charge of the delicious photos. A big thank you for letting me share them on my blog.
The yummy Kaz Fernando helped make the blushing bride look extra beautiful, Surrey Brides dressed Katie, and one of our favourite caterers, Acclaim, fed and watered all the guests.
Katie and Billy had strong ideas of what they wanted their day (and their flowers) to look like, and we were lucky enough to get the job of making it all come to life, with the help of some super stunning David Austin roses and the odd peony or two!
A huge thank you to Katie and Billy for choosing us to make your wedding extra pretty. We loved every minute.

This super stunning couple got married towards the end of last year, but I realised yesterday that I had never shared Eddie Judd Photography’s perfectly pretty pictures.
Louisa and Rich married at St Raphael’s Church in Kingston, before heading to The Wharf in Teddington, with a boat as their chariot!
Louisa found us through her good friend Sarah, whose wedding we had flowered in Eastbourne a few months earlier. We love the power of recommendations.
Thanks Louisa and Rich for choosing us to fill your day with all things pastel and pretty, and thanks to Eddie for sharing the photos with us, we reckon you captured the day perfectly.
“I just wanted to say such a big thank you for the most beautiful flowers you could have ever given us for the wedding! The bouquets were stunning and everyone said so too. I could not have loved my bouquet any more…! I am attempting to dry it out as I don’t want to throw it away. It was such a lovely surprise too when we arrived at The Wharf and the flowers looked so picture perfect pretty and way past expectations of how we imagined it to look. You really made the extra effort with the finishing touches and we couldn’t have been happier with everything. All day people were praising the flowers so I can not thank you and Fairy Nuff flowers enough! x” – Louisa and Rich
