Decorative mantelpieces be it at a wedding venue or in the home are the perfect way to celebrate the seasons, bringing the outside in. Such a beautiful thing to stand around, sit back & stare at whilst the fire cosies up the space even more!

Styled in the home of Pearl Lowe, this was a dream scene of blown garden roses in apricot, ruby red & lilac, lashings of copper beech and magnolia vines, plenty of darkly dried hydrangeas, black hellebores, fragrant eucalyptus and gilded ferns. Finished with VV Rouleux hand-tied velvet bows & vintage bird decorations.

Fresh & faded florals with a signature Saint Floral velvet bow is my favourite collaboration in Winter. Be it in the form of an everlasting wreath, mantelpiece instal or bridal bouquet. Here an abundant mix of fresh & dried florals for a decorative & ornamental aesthetic with beautiful depth & textures. The drama from the claret red roses and pale pink florets teamed with this moss green velvet bow.

Fragrant, foliaged wreath. Acacia, berried eucalyptus, juniper, viburnum berries, scabious pods, brunia, bracken, bronzed ferns, copper leaves. Blush rose silk ribbons; Lancaster & Cornish.

Lace-inspired winter whites with this feminine bridal bouquet. Fragrant white lilac, deep plum Winter hellebore, blush pink garden roses, heady eucalyptus & garden variegated ivy. 

Majestic Winter wedding ceremony mantelpiece, adorned abundantly and whimsically styled with fresh white delphinium, early peonies, foxgloves, scented garden roses & trailing foliages. Beautifully toned with warm golds and chandeliers. Sparkford Hall, Somerset.
