I had the pleasure of meeting a bit of an international celebrity in the wedding industry a few weeks ago. Wedding designer Karen Tran, at her exclusive London launch of her brand new book; Wedding Flowers.
Karen Tran is internationally acclaimed with her event and floral design company based in sunny California. She has been leading and creating opulent, extravagant and elegant floral designs that truly set the benchmark, for over 20 years.
One of my initial projects was floral designing for my brothers wedding in 1992. Still unsure about taking this profession seriously, I went into labour the evening right before the wedding. I immediately rang my sisters, not to take me to the hospital but to help me finish all the centerpieces for over 400 guests. Erica arrived in my life the day of my brothers wedding. This is when I realised I was cut out for this line of work. Karen Tran, Wedding Flowers
I was watching some of her guests arrive with excitement and anticipation to see her latest masterpiece at The Town Hall Hotel, East London.
As guests arrived, they were greeted with the warm welcoming tones set by candles, light airy surroundings, tall pink and white orchids. Elegantly draped tulips framed charismatic Dave Robertshaw on the grand piano, while he serenaded guests as they entered.
No Karen Tran event would be complete without an opulent flower wall which was a real feature, the perfect place for a picture with elegant Karen and her infectious smile and delicious red dress.
Wedding Flowers is a visual feast, a real treat for those who adore elegance and luxury. From inspiration for seaside weddings, to incredible tropical delights, to rustic, to inspiration from the beautiful french countryside. There truly is something for everyone who wants to create, get spectacular ideas and invest in their wedding and event flowers.
