Today I am paying homage to the bridal bouquet showcasing a year of bridal bouquets with some of my favourites from last year. There were so many to choose from that this is just a selection of the loveliness we were lucky enough to create last year. Hopefully they will inspire and give you some ideas for your own. One of the things I love about creating bridal bouquets is that each one is so completely unique, no two bouquets will ever be the same. In fact that is something that has fascinated me about flowers right from early on when I started studying my degree, we would all be given the exact same assortment of flowers & foliages & asked to create the same design whether it be a table centre or bouquet etc. & each and every one would look completely different, there were around 25 people in my class too! Pretty amazing I think.
The above bouquet was the lovely Ellie’s who got married last May. I love the mix of colours the bolder coral, cerise and yellow shades mixed with the softer hints of blush and lilac the contrast works really well together. Such an eclectic mix that included coral charm peonies, david austin garden roses, dahlias, sweet peas, clematis, craspedia, achillea and astilbe.
2015 also saw us create cascading bouquets, which our bride Charlotte (above) opted for, made up of gorgeous soft peaches & blush tones (which was created using no floral foam oasis) a trend which I think is set to be even more popular during 2016.
Natalie had the most stunning bespoke dress made for her ceremony last August at the Kensington Roof Gardens which was made up of delicate flower embroidery. She wanted the bouquet to compliment in terms of the colours blending with the details and colours of her dress. I was so chuffed when Natalie said that her bouquet matched her dress perfectly!
This wild organic free flowing bouquet was from a collaborative shoot last year we worked on with Corette Faux. I love the heavy foliage we used & the trailing jasmine vines just finish it off.
I adore the mix of colours from this bouquet paired with the softness of the asparagus fern created for our Industrial Glam meets Botanical shoot.
Looking back at these images, I think its safe to say I love creating bouquets with lots of different textures! I can’t wait to see what 2016 will see us create for our lovely brides….
