Ever since Kayne West and Kim Kardashian got married in front of two 20 foot walls of fresh flowers in 2014, flower walls have been all the trend in the wedding world and are still going strong. Everyone loves them, and we can't get enough of them. Kim and Kayne opted for fresh flowers and their 20ft walls were made of roses, peonies and gardenias. We all know that famous picture of them getting married in front of the two flower walls with a beautiful hint of sun shining through. Could it be any more perfect?
Well....We are here to help! With flower walls still all the craze in the wedding world, we can help create ever-lasting images from your special day to treasure forever. If you're a little OCD like me, the perfect picture is so important. It's not just how you look, what you're wearing or how your hair looks, it's the background details and all the finishing touches around it. We have 8 different styles of luxury flower walls at Epic in various colours to suit any colour scheme or event.
So, a little bit about our walls. Our flower walls are 8ft by 8ft, completely free standing and weighted down for safety. Our luxury flower walls are made from high quality silk flowers and they consist of thousands of silk flowers which are hand crafted and applied individually to create a realistic and natural looking floral backdrop.
Some of our brides ask us, apart from looking blooming perfect, what can flower walls actually be used for?
Well, why not position your flower wall behind your top table? You can't get a much more picture perfect than a wall full of beautiful blooms behind you while you and your loved ones celebrate at your wedding breakfast.
Let's face it, after you're married and you are all sat down, all focus is on you and your top table. This is where your photographer and your guests will capture a lot of images.
You can also place your flower wall along your dance floor and create first dance heaven by adding a couple of up-lighters either side and dancing your way into married life. Your first dance pictures would look like something out of Disney.
So you are kinda getting my vibe here, flower walls are all about creating the perfect pictures and adding timeless glamour to your weddings and events.
Why not place the flower wall behind your cake table, or behind a welcome drink station. We have even had brides use it as a huge table plan and using the table plan as a focus feature or use the flower wall to add baby pictures of the bride and groom in hanging frames.
You can use a flower wall as a statement ceremony back drop. Imagine getting married and saying your ' I do's' in front of a huge floral wall. Why not place a blossom tree either side of the flower wall on huge statement acrylic on trend pillars, draped with hanging glass baubles with candles and scattered rose petals. Have ceremony pictures to die for AND not forgetting the first kiss pictures (fifty shades vibes).
Give your guests something to pose against and the selfie lovers something to get their heart racing. Flower walls are a bloggers heaven for taking pictures. Your guests sure will appreciate the flower wall rather than having their picture taken against a boring door or wall, it is all about the back ground details.
Talking of selfie lovers, why not use the flower wall as a DIY photo booth? Just provide your guests with some props and selfie away.
Out of the hundreds of events we have been part of over the years, our flower walls have always been the most talked about and most loved item. Everyone adores them. They are a huge talking point and such a statement background that adds style, class and luxury to your wedding or event.
So, how can you make your flower wall personal?
Not only do you get to choose a flower wall colour and flower option you love that suits your colour scheme, we also offer laser cut out letters and words to hang from your flower wall.
Best Day Ever
Welcome to our Wedding
You & Me
Instead, why not add your initials to the wall? Or your new surname under Mr&Mrs or even your wedding date? You cant get much more personal than that!
We also have a range of neon lights available for hire along with the flower walls, these lights can be hung to the walls and add another element to flower walls giving it a little bit of edge.
You can view our range of Neon Lights here: www.epiceventhire.co.uk/neon-sign-hire-
At Epic we can also offer a draped flower wall. We can add draping around the flower wall to create an even bigger statement background. Why not add an floral arrangement to your flower wall or hang foliage along the top or hang foliage hoops, absolute floral goals.
Moving on a little from weddings, flower walls can be used for absolutely any event. Why not use a flower wall at your baby shower and make it personal with hanging laser cut wording?
Our most popular wording for baby showers are, 'it's a boy/girl', 'oh baby' or even babies name.
Flower walls can also be used for anniversary parties, birthday parties, engagement celebrations, launch parties and events, photo shoots, corporate events, promotional advertising or shop decoration. Flower walls are not limited to one style of event. We have even had people hire our flower walls for garden parties and summer BBQ's. If you want picture perfect, then a floral backdrop is for you.
If you're looking for a little floral wall inspo, then here are some celebs that have used flower walls at their events.
Stating the obvious and trend setter, Kim Kardashian and her sisters Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian have also used flower walls recently at their baby showers.
