Flowers and foliage have always been a popular choice for weddings, however over the last year, couples have explored how they can adapt this theme to add uniqueness and creativity.

Florals can provide a soft and gentle hue to an elegant and intimate wedding, yet at the same time, can stand out to complement the bride and groom. From welcoming displays to centre pieces and catering, there are so many possibilities and creations that can add that WOW factor to weddings.

Brides Magazine explored this trend and shared that couples are getting more and more creative with how they use florals; from potted plants and suspended flowers to floral themed cocktails and catering. The publication also shared that mixed botanicals and fragrant garden-inspired designs were an ever-evolving trend and that weddings are expected to be bursting with fabulous blooms full of texture and colour… many options for extravagant and intimate weddings.

The next question is how can you bring florals into The Mermaid London?

The Mermaid London’s River Rooms, with its own private entrance, is a blank canvas space ready and waiting for floral décor ideas. The team can share ways to best dress the venue whether you’re in the Lower River Room, Upper River Room or adjoining Queenhithe space, ideal for additional seating to your reception or a dancefloor. The Mermaid London is licensed until 2am meaning you can party the night away until the early hours.

The River Rooms can accommodate from 80 guests up to 450 for dining and up to 700 guests for an evening reception. The spaces are very versatile, so you can explore floral ideas from table arrangements, welcoming displays, catering and the wedding ceremony itself, and when matched with panoramic sights of London’s River Thames, Tate Modern, Shakespeare’s Globe and The Shard, the River Rooms becomes an idyllic backdrop for wedding ceremonies, photographs, speeches and receptions.

The Mermaid London’s catering supplier, KUDOS, one of the UK’s leading event catering companies, create innovative menus including floral themed dishes, drinks and ways to dress the dishes themselves like a Perspex box with flowers inside, a serving tray with petals and flowers incorporated into the design or even a blossom cake dressed with your favourite flowers as the topper.

So why not stage your floral wedding at The Mermaid London; tie the knot overlooking London landmarks with breath-taking views across the River Thames and have an expert team on hand to make your wedding one to remember.
