It is always a lovely surprise to hear from a bride many months after her wedding. A few weeks ago I received an email and photos from one of my gorgeous brides, Mel.
Mel wanted colourful (focusing on pink and yellow), eclectic, vintage, hippy flowers and was happy to leave all the decisions on flowers, style etc to me. After meeting Mel and talking about her wedding over a glass of wine, I knew she would love arrangements that were a little different and I would be able to be more creative than usual. I was excited!
I wanted to use seasonal flowers and with a rough plan, I left most of the decision-making to the morning of my market run.
I used different varieties of roses, carnations (small and large), succulents, coriander, dahlias, celosia, seaholly, echinacea, lisianthus, amaranthus, anemone buds, different varieties of chrysanthemums, daisies and a large variety of foliage. Every arrangement, including the bouquets, were different and I had a ball creating them!
“The flowers were amazing, you did the best job! My Mum keeps saying they’re the best flowers she’s ever seen. I loved my flower crown, it smelt amazing and I had beautiful rose perfume wafting around all night. They lasted for ages after and before we left I pulled all the petals off the roses and they dried nicely. Loved the flowers you chose for the grass – have the best photo of Mitch sprinkling them.
Thanks for everything you did, you were amazing :)”
