Wedding Flowers, Bouquets and Buttonholes
Wedding flowers! Flowers of all description, weddings love flowers – whether it’s bouquets and buttonholes or floral arrangements for the venue. We have created some beautiful arrangements over the years and here are a mere few of them for your perusal.
We love that bouquets don’t always have to have flowers in them. With that in mind we’ve created some alternatives. Below we show a feather fan with beading details and a pearl and crystal bouquet. We also have a Cala Lily bouquet created in the shape of a half moon.
You can add a combination of elements in the creation of your wedding florals. Use beads and crystals as embellishments. Or feathers, grasses, brooches, dried florals. Anything that takes your fancy in fact.
Perhaps you have something that has been passed down in your family and you want it to be a part of your wedding day? We can use that to create a bouquet that’s unique and personal to you. And one that you definitely won’t want to throw over your shoulder. Indeed we have a blog on the topic of throwing the bouquet – and why you might want to rethink that particular tradition. It’s one of many traditions that modern brides are examining, rethinking and often going a different way.

And therein lies the root of the tradition of tossing the bouquet. People thought that, if they touched the bride, her luck would rub off on them. But we’re not talking simply touching the bride’s hand here. Oh no. It was far more invasive than that! …’ But read the blog to find out more!
Make your own traditions
But it’s for you make your own traditions and follow your own heart’s desires and create the scene you have always dreamt off. Go big and bold, with fabulous statement displays or opt for subtle and timeless with dreamy colour combinations. Or even quirky or whimsical by incorporating your hobbies and following a theme.
Bouquets can be so different and all so beautiful.

Flowers don’t have to be fresh
Do bear in mind that, if you want a floral bouquet you don’t have to have fresh flowers. There are many compelling reasons for opting for silk flowers. In our blog, 7 benefits of silk flowers and foliage we explore that very subject.
‘If you’ve recently become engaged and are embarking on the wedding planning process then the use of silk flowers and foliage in both your bouquet and venue-dressing is well worth considering. They are far more realistic in appearance than they once were. Technology has improved them no end and the good quality ones are almost indistinguishable from the real thing …’
