As you might have noticed we love colours and love to play with them when it comes to designing a beautiful #wedding creative. I am excited to share with you some more details of this #luxurious shoot we designed a couple of months ago.

The South Place Hotel, based in the City of London served as the perfect location for this Modern Luxury styled shoot. I wanted to style a wedding that incorporated a tablescape with a vibrant colour palette and over the top #florals. The idea was to create a very #luxurious and lavish look, rich in colour and details for the modern and discerning brides and grooms to be.


We were a team of 6 suppliers on the day to prepare and dress the venue, while the video and photography team took an early start to treat the makeup and hair styling as a real wedding, taking the model right through from bridal preparation to candid and posed images.


This #Luxurious modern theme was filled with gold details including golden oval chairs, golden cutleries and gold glasses. Floating candles and votives were winding all the way across the table with vibrant #florals in abundance to ensure a #luxury look, feel and scent for guests. The design of the stationaries intentionally matched the #flowers to add a #romantic touch to the tablescape.


We had Full use of the hotel, including the Michelin starred restaurant and the roof terrace to really show the diversity in themes a hotel can bring when #design is a key feature. The venue actually hosted a real wedding on the day of the shoot and walking around with a #bride really confused the groom's party pre-ceremony as they were wondering where their #bride had gone."

It was such a fun and #creative day collaborating with an amazing team of UK #wedding vendors. Scroll to bottom for list.

This week we are taking a look back at this tasteful and #elegant #wedding we designed at the Double Tree by Hilton in Dartford.


We Just love an elegant and #stylish wedding and this one was no exception for our lovely bride Vanessa. She contacted us after attending another wedding we designed for one of her friend. She got our details because in her own words; she knew she needed a decorator and it had to be Florissa Designs. Needless to say she was thrilled with the result. She gave us full creative control in terms of all the #floral #arrangements and finishing touch. We had understated elegance in mind when we designed the reception which took place in the newly refurbished Queen Elizabeth Suite. Our team designed #beautiful low arrangements for the guests table as well as a floral arch for the sweetheart area for our bride and groom.


It was a beautiful day and we are so thankful to have been a part of such an amazing collaborative team who pulled all together. Thanks to Dominic Archer for the beautiful pictures.

My name is Mannuela, I am the creative director of Florissa Designs, a Bespoke Floral and Event Design company based in London, United Kingdom.


You wouldn't believe me if I told you about the many pre-conceived ideas I have had about the #styling industry. From whether it is even possible to grasp the essence of a captivating idea and turn it into a reality, or whether it's possible to achieve a beautiful event and whether it's even worth all the trouble. In all honesty, it goes without saying that with every mistake and the many years of up's and down's that I have experienced; accompanied by the unexplainable joy that eclipse the eyes of my clients. I can wholeheartedly testify that it is not only achievable and attainable to create a beautiful event, but it is utterly and completely worth it. WHY? Because styling isn't just about making something look appealing. Styling transforms and sets the atmosphere for the event, it has the power to set the entire feel for the day, as it brings the theme to life, through the way it accentuates the venue, through its textures, tones and everything in between.


I sit before you today, with five unexpected years within the styling industry that have been shy of perfect, and in all honesty, I wouldn't have it any other way. These years have not only enabled me to refine and cultivate my skills. But with every mishap; I have been able to plan and decorate the most effective, efficient and wonderful events. From how to budget effectively, to prioritise what is most important to the client when planning the event. Such as picking a breathtaking venue so there isn't a need for so much #decor, or the ability to identify the fundamental elements of an idea that sets the scene for the day. To the best choice of flowers and colour schemes that reflect the client's concept without creating discord between their vision, venue and choice of wedding season. Although hands-on experience is the best teacher, I also completed a two-year foundation degree at the University of Arts, London, studying event management and floral design, needless to say, this course ignited my love for #floristry and floral design. (You are definitely in safe hands!) Through my blog, I want to share every piece of the puzzle when it comes to planning, designing and organising a successful #wedding or #event. From preparation and budgeting, to how to save efficiently and effectively, choosing quality vendors, as well as addressing what DIY truly makes the wedding.


Stay tuned for our next blog post where I will be sharing a bit more about consultations and the best questions to ask your event stylist.

Until then, have a blessed week.

Much Love!
