As a creative event agency, colour, mood and texture are vital for Moriarty throughout each stage of the planning process. The team enhance events through artistic design and create personal experiences for each and every guest.
While planning Binky Felstead and Max Darnton’s wedding weekend Moriarty set out to design an overall floral look that presented the couple’s individual personalities and style. ‘I felt the overall experience reflected Max and myself really well as they understood us as a couple.’ With the wedding being held in Corfu authentic tones and texture were extremely important to incorporate, creating an overall cohesive look that enhanced the stunning surroundings.
Moriarty started the floral journey for Binky and Max by experimenting with tones and textures, weaving a variety of shades throughout the original creative concept. The wedding venue was encircled by luscious greens and crystal-clear waters, so it was important to elevate the natural beauty and use soft and muted tones, to not juxtapose the surroundings but to enhance them.
‘Moriarty suggested a colour pallet of green and white, creating a clean and dreamy vibe throughout.’
On the island they set out to find the perfect supplier who could turn their ideas into a reality. Creating beautiful arrangements and artistically curated pieces with his floral designs, Leonidas Rammos was the perfect person to support the team’s ideas. Working closely with Leonidas, Moriarty began selecting the perfect flowers to add depth to the design and bring the bride and groom’s vision to life.
The showstopping ceremony
The wedding venue, The White House, had a perfect, secluded sea-view spot for the ceremony to take place within the beautiful gardens. This provided an intimate location with sea views and a natural aisle, the perfect backdrop for the couple’s wedding ceremony.
Taking inspiration from Binky and Max’s unique aesthetic, Moriarty designed a whimsical, a-symmetrical arch under which the happy couple could say their vows. The Archway was made with multiple types and varieties of foliage such as Estricia and Pittosporum Ralphi with pops of white added from the addition of florals such as Cappuccino and white Garden Roses. The florals were added to cascade down the two columns, breaking up the dense layers of green and adding pops of carefully placed elegance to the design. Finally, white Jasmine and Dianthus Solomio Ken flowers were placed through the foliage
, adding depth and lifting the installation as a whole.
To complement the arch, four floral arrangements framed the aisle in anticipation of Binky’s arrival, whilst also adding to the beautiful smells within the garden. Binky loved the floral decoration and said Moriarty ‘saw the beauty in the surroundings at the stunning venue and didn’t overdo the dressing, the balance was just perfect.’
Binky’s stunning bouquet was created using a white and green colour palette with accented touches of blush and cappuccino. The colours within the bouquet beautifully complimented the bride’s skin tone and the off-white of her wedding dresses. The mixture of white flowers including Jasmine, Dianthus Solomio Ken and Lisianthus provided a gorgeous floral base, adding texture and depth to the bouquet. Lastly, Garden Roses were delicately placed, incorporating a traditional feel, while the green flowing foliage complemented the whimsical style of the bride.
Using the same flowers within Binky’s bouquet, elegant floral wreaths were created for the flower girls’ heads, Binky’s daughter & niece. These provided the perfect accessory and were a beautiful alternative to a jewelled headpiece, and made the girls feel like princesses for the day.
For buttonholes, Max wanted something simple and elegant for him and his ushers. Shades of white and green foliage were used to create individual pieces that complimented the beautiful setting.
The table design
A runner of foliage and individual glass vases of white florals were placed centrally down each long dining table, creating a natural and flowing feel. Hanging foliage, fairy lights and blush candles were lit to create an intimate and warm atmosphere, ready for celebrations throughout the night.
A Moriarty summary
Moriarty thoroughly enjoyed designing the floral arrangements throughout this wedding, working with an incredible florist to surpass both Binky and Max’s wildest dreams. ‘We had the perfect destination wedding with an iconic creative edge, that was undeniably beautiful’. The combination of flowers, location, family and friends will leave a lasting impact on all involved for years to come.
