Recent Weddings and Galleries
Over the past number of years it has been my pleasure to supply literally hundreds of brides and grooms with a vast selection of wedding flowers and decorations. I have been constantly inspired by newly engaged couples who have chosen to decorate their wedding with flowers that personalised their big day.
I’ve loved nothing more than to incorporate all manner of seasonal or stylised elements and that’s where the fun starts for me. I have gathered a small selection of some of my favourite couple’s photos from some of the most recent weddings and each one has a back story. Some of the back stories included the ‘just picked from the meadow’ brief when the flowers have been requested to look as natural and uncontrived as possible.
Other recent weddings have asked for a simple, clean and contemporary or sophisticated feel. I’ve often used clear glass for this one with either square cube vases or round goldfish bowls. Swirls of steel or bear grass have proved a good partner to these containers. Team these with a mass of single coloured roses all at one level and architectural shaped leaves to create a very clean, modern look.
Ever popular of the past couple of years has been vintage. Recent weddings with vintage decoration have come in several styles from English village fete . This might include using informal jars, apothecary bottles, lengths of bunting, cake stands and wonderful scented, old fashioned garden flowers to fill a mix of containers.
The other end of the vintage spectrum has been inspired by “The Great Gatsby” Hollywood glamour. This has been great fun to work with and I have often used lots of silver or chrome style vases and urns. Mirrors are a great prop together with strings of pearls, diamante and crystals and of course in winter month’s glass or silver coloured candelabra ooze additional glamour.
Vintage peachy/pink carnations, trails of long asparagus fern, clouds of gypsophlia or tall white calla lilies are all great flowers and foliages that I’ve used to sum up the vintage era.
The four natural seasons all present decorating options which have included combinations of colourful spring tulips, anemones and ranunculus. Summer celebrated with opulent peonies, majestic delphiniums or simple old fashioned border carnations. Autumn brings the chance to incorporate fruits, berries and ornamental vegetables. Then the winter months allow us to indulge in Christmas trees, red berries, winter wonderland glitter twigs, velvet ribbons and fabulous candles, candles and more candles.
Those pictures are some from the most recent weddings, the photos are just a snap moment in time as each enjoyed the most wonderful of days.
