Laura & Jon's Wedding Day

Luxury wedding florist Fabienne Egger's work initially sparked my interest during my husband and I's wedding planning preparations last November. Her work came recommended by the wonderful At Home Catering who catered on our wedding day.
We were looking for somebody who was not only talented and passionate about their work, but one who could work with us to help our creative floristry vision come true.
We had a Winter Wedding and our colour theme was opulent Burgundy and Gold and we wanted our wedding flowers to reflect our concept. We also had a short time frame to organise everything, three months!
Fabienne took a professional and personalised approach with us from the very beginning, our initial meeting was wonderful and enjoyed chatting through floristry ideas over a glass of wine.
In terms of our dining room décor we wanted a luxurious yet rustic feel to each table using warm coloured flowers sitting in ornate golden bowls lit up by candlelight. In the centre of each table a display of beautiful burgundy, pinks and cream flowers surrounded by an explosion of golden twigs and delicate foliage.
For my bouquet we included burgundy calla lilies, chocolate cosmos, pink, cream and ivory coloured spray roses, wax flowers and springs of gold eucalyptus, my bridesmaids had bouquets to reflect mine. My husband and groomsmen had a cream rose accompanied with seasonal foliage and wax flowers.
One our wedding day itself it was so wonderful to see our creative vision come to life. One of Fabienne's team delivered the beautiful bouquets to my home whilst we was getting ready, I loved the personalised touch.
We had our wedding dinner and reception at the stunning Fetcham Park and the impact of Fabienne's floristry work was seen in the stunning dining room, the salon. The room itself is adorned with opulent gold leaf and a twinkling crystal chandeliers.
The warm flowers lit up by candlelight really complimented the room so nicely and made our golden and aubergine table-wear spring to life. We were delighted by the attention to detail that had been demonstrated by Fabienne and her team.
Overall we were heartwarmingly happy with our Wedding Day flowers. You can see photographs of the Wedding Day on SheHearts http://shehearts.net/winterweddingfetchampark/
Fabienne's work continuously impresses. She's currently working closely with Cohim Flower School in China teaching an Intensive & Comprehensive Floral Design Course. The students are learning to design hand tied bouquets, table centre pieces, pedestal arrangements as well as banqueting and wedding installation techniques.
“Teaching in Beijing is always a challenge, I love working with different cultures, learning more about their country, food and their lifestyle. I always look forward to my next trip to China” -Fabienne Egger.
The photographs on Fabienne's instagram account of her work in China are a pleasure to see.
If you're looking for a passionate and highly motivated wedding florist to work with you to help made your Wedding Floristry dream come true I would highly recommend Fabienne. A pleasure to work with.
