It’s cold, really cold! I’m now wearing my ugg boots and the tights have come out of the drawers, I’m battling as much as I can to hold of wearing my thick winter coat for as long as possible but I think I will succumb to wearing that before long too! I just can’t believe how quickly this year has gone! As our 2016 wedding season draws to a close (we have our last wedding next weekend and then it’s a wrap from us!) I wanted to reflect on some of the floral bouquet beauties we have created this year, hopefully it gives you some bridal bouquet inspiration. So what’s been happening since I last checked in with you here? Well my wedding was featured on Love my Dress last week and it was so lovely reliving the day all over again, as my past brides will know the day just flashes by so quickly so the images are just such a special memento that you can look back on for years to come. There have also been lots of exciting changes happening here at HQ too and I promise to update you all soon with that personal blog post that I mentioned a few weeks back. It’s brewing bubbling away in the back of my mind, I just need the right time and head space to compose it properly, otherwise I have a tendency to waffle on a bit, as you know 😉
One of my most favourite designs to create when it comes to wedding flowers will always be the bridal bouquet, each one is it’s own unique creation and art work. I pride myself on picking specific ingredients that add that special finishing touch, the ‘Piece de resistance’ that completes the overall design. Now I won’t lie to you, when my alarm clock starts ringing in my ear at 3.30am and its still dark outside I seriously question my chosen career path and often wonder if I need my head examined!! But I still insist on personally hand selecting my blooms for each brief rather then making life easier for myself and having them delivered and it is purely for this reason alone, that I want my couples to have the best. This could be a particular berry or foliage which is the perfect shade of green or the dahlia which ‘I have never seen in that shade before’ whatever it is, I want my brides to have it. Also, I have said it once but I shall say it again & again you can’t beat the choice of different varieties available at New Covent Garden flower market and for me to create my designs to my high standards & not be restricted with regards to variety then for me this really is the only place to go. So here’s a little look at some of our 2016 bridal bouquets….(so far)
These are just a few of the bridal bouquets created this year, a mix of both professional and Iphone images snapped on my phone (as I’m sure you can tell ;-)). It’s lovely to see the change in seasons with the use of different colours and textures. What flowers did you have in your bouquet? Bright & vibrant or did you opt for classic whites? Future brides, I hope this has given you some inspiration for your bridal bouquet.
