The last few weeks i have created some really lovely wedding flowers. So last Saturday i got the honour of creating wedding flowers for the lovely Becci & Alastair. Becci new straight away the style and feel she was going for. She originally wanted peonies but unfortunately her wedding didn't fall on their season! She wanted flowers that would give the same ambience then peonies give so she chose gorgeous Garden Roses, i sourced David Austin 'Patient' Roses and they smelt sooo good! She also had Hydrangeas, Lizianthus (without the bids), Gypsophila and White Soda Roses (my new favourite white roses).
Her bouquet (pictured above) was a rounded hand tied bouquet, giving the ambiance of real fluffiness and luxury. This style of bouquet is getting more popular, goes very well with the more glamourous styles, diamontes/ pearls go very well with the flowers.
For Becci's bridesmaid bouquet (picture to the left) she had a smaller version of her bouquet without the hydrangea. Giving off those same fluffy, classy textures. She also prefered the small headed Gypsophila rather than the bigger headsed Gypsophila.
Here is Becci's bouquets and buttonholes in there travel box ready to leave my workshop.
When Becci came to me for our first meeting she knew exactly what she wanted for her centrepieces too. With a hint of simple but classy she chose a larger gold jar with 3 white Roses and Gypsophila and then 5 smaller jars around with a mixture of the garden Roses, Hydrangea and Gypsophila and in between them little tea lights.
With some left over petals i threw some petals down the aisle, i think they just finish the room off lovely!
I really enjoyed creating Becci & Alastair's wedding flowers, Becci commented on a instagram post i posted of her flowers and said they were perfect, so happy and makes my job all worth it. All i could want to hear!
