Some words from Helaina the Bride from the feature on Love My Dress

India of Vervain blew my mind – amazing flowers were really important to us. We knew exactly the style of florals we wanted and just couldn’t find this locally to the venue, so we went all out and invited India across the Channel with her 4 assistants and the result was phenomenal.
Vervain’s tagline ‘orchestrated chaos’ sums up her approach perfectly.
I just loved the wild, natural unruly structure of her pieces and the colours and textures she used were absolutely divine. India was definitely one of our ‘luxury items’ and we had so many compliments on how incredible the table centres looked and the huge fabulous urns in the church, which we later had moved to the marquee. I’ve also made a very dear friend and loved sharing almost every wedding detail with her in the lead-up.
She understood our vision completely and we trusted her every step of the way. She is just the sweetest person and a total floral design genius!”

Golden, caramel, peach and blush made the colour palette for this destination wedding in the dordogne, full of rich tones and the most beautiful blooms. The setting for this beautiful wedding was within the grounds of a grand french chateau, the perfect location for a opulent stylish wedding. 

The bride and her maids carried bouquets of delicate summer foliage, garden roses and café au lait dahlias, each wrapped in pale shades of trailing bamboo silk. 

Each table centre was arranged in a footed marble vase, complimenting the sequinned table runners and pastel coloured candles that adorned them. Helaina the bride had great attention to detail and planned everything down to the tiniest detail, but she gave us free rein with her flowers to create the most beautiful arrangements we could.
