Make my Dream come True….
but it’s all about the budget!
How often do you hear the phrase “I want you to make my dreams come true” when you speak to a bride?
With the advent of Instagram many brides have inflated ideas about what can be achieved with
a limited budget. However, every so often, a bride arrives with a suitable budget that allows a designer
to go for it and that’s what happened this time.
Turning a bridal carriage into a Disneyesque creation complete with garlands and a floral dome was something
new to us. Robert Koene and his team were asked to do just that and used Gypsophila to make the regal
dome and garlands for the carriage. Not a quick solution but certainly an effective one!
Next came a floral gazebo which was festooned in a magnificent array of flowers including stunning
Phalaenopsis Orchids, Hydrangea, Roses, Peony and Astilbe. In turn, this linked to a statement antique
garden urn piece which continued the garland theme with a single garland extension.
Robert is known for his signature bridal designs. These feature only one variety of flower as was evidenced by
one of his weddings we featured a few years ago where he created an Altar cloth covered with rose petals. On
this occasion, he designed a parasol for the bride covered in single heads of … Phalaenopsis Orchids!
To say that the event had the WOW factor is putting it mildly but then, that’s exactly what Robert is known
for and, as he says, if you have the budget it allows you the opportunity to make those dreams come true!
