From day one Becky and I clicked straight away. I had a clear vision of the look Becky wanted for her flowers. Any wedding florist in Nottingham would have loved to do her wedding flowers. She wanted vintage with dusty pinks and lilacs and a hint of purple with white for her bouquet. The pictures i got sent back from her from her wedding photographer were absolutely stunning. Her wedding dress suited her so well, and her bouquet really complimented her and the rest of the wedding decor.
Becky's Bouquet Included: Dahlias, Freesia, Roses, Wax Flower, Phlox, Lizianthus, Astrantia, Gypsophila Thistle, Thlaspi, Ornigatholium, Pittosporum and Eucalyptus.
Can i just say, the image above of Becky holding her bouquet is one of my favourite and up in my top 3. The image really focus's on her bouquet and really shouts out the textures and whole theme of her wedding.
Some bride’s don’t give their bridesmaids a choice of flowers but Becky was kind enough to let her bridesmaids have input into their bouquets. The goal was to be a little different and for the brides bouquet to stand out more (which is totally fine, i would too!). They had a bit more pink and white which helped contrast really well.
Becky's Bridesmaids Bouquets Included: Gerberas, Roses, Phlox, Gypsophila, Freesia, Pittosporum, Eucalyptus and Ruscus.
I think the the colours and textures from the bridesmaids bouquets really complimented the colour of their dresses. They had a bit more pink and more white which helped contrast really well. Becky's partner David wanted something simple for himself and his groomsmen, he went neutral with a white Rose, Gypsophila, Pittosporum and Ruscus.
In one of our appointments Becky came to me with a puzzled face not sure on what to do about her top table. She knew she wanted flowers, but she didn't want to have your average top table arrangement. I suggested, as her theme was vintage/ shabby chic, why not get a bit of texture in there and chuck a wooden crate full of flowers on the table! I remember her face lit up, she did a bit of research her self online and looked for the right shape of arrangement and how big she liked it. She sourced thin rectangular wooden crate (it was perfect for what she had in mind) she didn't want the flowers to be to over the top, and this is what i created for her.
I really enjoyed creating the flowers for the wooden crate, and all the other designs. I do appreciate a bride with good taste! What lovely pictures i got sent back, that i will love looking back on. And i do love a challenge, so when any bride comes to me and is puzzled i will help suggest things and point in the right direction.
