Floral servicesOur floral team listens closely to our brides in order to match the arrangements to their individual personality, making sure that the arrangements uniquely express their identity. We asked Helen, part of the Chateau's talented floral department, what she considers to be the hot trends for the 2018 season,
"Foliage is big this season, with plenty of greenery to compliment the flowers. We're looking at incorporating potted herbs, and trees into our designs. We were very happy with our bridal arches last season, but we're not sitting on our laurels so to speak, and we've got some amazing ideas to truly stun our brides this year. And of course white tulips are not only in, but always look fantastic, especially when we use them in our signature floral chandeliers."
