Something Blue… @That Amazing Place

Marquee weddings definitely need drama!
Large white spaces need gorgeous tall displays to fill up the huge expanse of white fabric. The flower choices you make can really create an impact and carry your wedding style through to each of your guest tables. Here @thatamazingplace we used their silver candelabras and created these fabulous informal displays of sky blue hydrangeas, blush and white roses, lisianthus, stocks, bouvardia and trails of amaranthus and eucalyptus.

Throw some “Southern Charm” into the mix

These beautiful centrepieces filled @hanburymanormarriott Poles Hall last month. Soft blush @meijerroses were mixed with dramatic dark dahlias and astrantia flowers. Our beautiful bride was all the way from America’s Deep South and she wanted to add a little ‘Southern Charm’ so we included these darling pearls!

A Rosy Glow inside little cute Jam Jars

Jam jar weddings are still a hugely popular option for wedding flowers. These weren’t used as the main centrepiece flowers, but were used to decorate window sills and radiator covers @thefoxandhoundshunsdon We like to mix the sizes of jars to create more interest and throw some tea light votives into the mix to add a rosy glow

Goodbye Summer, it’s been a pleasure

Goodbye Summer! You’ve been hard work for me… Giving me all that heat to deal with! Having to hide my flowers in the cool cellar every night, or borrowing air conditioned offices from lovely local businesses and getting up in the middle of the night on the day of the weddings to make arrangements super fresh, cause I feared they’d wilt overnight! BUT… we managed and throughout the heatwave, we had no droopy flowers! We will forgive you, Summer, for all of that because you made our brides so happy! There was so much drinking on the lawns, partying into the night and saying “I do” in the open air. You’ve been amazing, Summer, the perfect backdrop to our beautiful wedding flowers.
Tomorrow we will launch our New Autumn Signature range of bouquets and the shop will be bursting with golds and oranges. Until next year, Summer 🙋‍♀️. .

A flower wall full of exotic flowers

This gorgeous wall was created for last weeks @lucybeecoconut wedding party. Lucy had already had her intimate wedding ceremony in Majorca the week before. She had really pretty and delicate florals for her big day, so we wanted to create something completely different for the party night back home. After our initial consultation, we chatted about what she liked and what would set the tone for a fabulous party vibe. The main focus was to be the bar, which was straight in front of you as you entered the marquee. So I offered the idea of these two flower walls to stand either side. It was great to work with Lucy as she had the vision to understand my ideas, as well as the trust to give me artistic license to do what I do best. A few months later and et voila… an amazing wedding party night filled with friends and family who danced and drank the night away in front of these two tropical beauties. 🌴 🌷

Phesant feathers amongst fruits and flowers

It was such a treat to be let loose with these flowers, feathers and fruits. These arrangements were designed to compliment a traditional Russian feasting tradition at a wedding. They are reminiscent of antique oil paintings of opulent still life displays. We just love it when brides let us run with our creativity and sketch and design and create until the perfect display arrives on the table! Thank you to our lovely bride for giving us creative license, it was a complete joy working with you!

A beautiful, enchanted Snow White wedding

If Snow White got married in a barn in Buntingford, this is what she’d look like .
Mirella carried a bouquet of Black Bacarra, Naomi, Sweet Avalanche roses, woody waxflowers and Astrantia, and my goodness, didn’t she look beautiful.

What these beautiful gypsophilia bouquets should look like

Ok. I’m putting it out there…. these right here, are what gypsophilia bouquets should look like! Big, beautiful clouds of sweet white flowers! I keep seeing measly shapeless clusters of gyp, tied together. Brides you need to make sure you’re getting the ‘Overtime’ variety of the flower, not the teeny ‘Million Star’. That’s is all!

Haileybury Open Day

We had the privilege of being able to do big beautiful spring bouquets for Haileybury open day. A mixture of delphiniums, narcissi and viburnum in stunning blues and yellows sat in tall glass vases on a table. A great colour combination and the perfect colour goals for Spring. Come on sunshine out you come…

Valentines 2018- A big thank you too!

The flying dutchman came for a last minute visit in time for valentines and a quick selfie! We then had 150 bouquets sitting in the shop waiting to find their owners on Tuesday 13th Feb for Wednesday 14th Feb! It’s always tricky knowing how many extra bouquets to make for those last minute passer by romantics who want to pick up a bouquet on impulse… but we nailed it this year… nothing left, a complete sell out! Lots of happy customers, lots of orders and lots of deliveries, which meant we had such a perfect Valentines ourselves! Thanks for all of your support Hertford!

Our favourite 9 from 2017

It came without a doubt that it would be very hard to pick our favourite nine out of all the masterpieces we created last year as we had such a wonderful year… Thanks so much to all of our lovely customers for your support last year! Looking forward to 2018… lots of arrangements to be made, brides to make smile and bouquets to be delivered!

We were busy little faries this Christmas

This Christmas we were certainly busy little faries creating masterpieces in/on people’s homes. The gorgeous white house in Brickendon got the perfect makeover. The entrance was filled with blue pine, cinnamon sticks and pheasant feathers wrapped in a giant red bow, that looked perfect against the white as it spiraled up to the top. As you entered the home a stunning staircase was right in front of you covered in blue pine, pheasant feathers, cones, gold grevillea and large fragrant cinnamon sticks, finished with a gorgeous American style bow. We absolutely loved it and it was decor envy! The final delivery was also made of the year with a decadent silver spruce candle arrangement that completed a perfect Christmas table.

Christmas is nearly here!!

It’s that time of year where Santa is soon to be arriving for all the excited little boys and girls. We love Christmas here at Jane Maples Flowers and creating Christmas wreaths like this is why we love our job. A perfect rich, bold red wreath with gerbras, pine cones, roses and berries will sit perfectly on someone’s front door.

A winter wedding in Westminster

The Jane Maples dream team took their passion and creativity to the pews of St Margaret’s Westminster to create a beautiful, snowy winter wedding for the bride to be. The ends were filled with big luxury bouquets of gypsophilia tied in bows of white organza. Each girl of the girl squad had a task in the hall and turned it into a perfect wedding that any girl could dream of! What a choice of places to get married!
