As a homage to one of my wedding faves I though I’d share some of my favourite blooms from last year’s weddings. one of my beautiful brides RaeÂ has shared with me her thoughts on choosing her flowers and her experience
These are hands down my favourite blooms from last year, the girls at Pyrus always blow my away with their incredible creations. Â Not only was Rae’s bouquet stunning but the venue flowers were out of this world, Â my particular favourite was the gallery of flowers, delicately hung in frames, utterly stunning.
“I chose my flowers because i really liked Pyrus and I trusted them to do a great job. I really enjoyed going for tea with the pyrus girls and bouncing ideas around- coming up with totally crazy ideas that stretched my imagination to the limit! I was in a good mood the whole day after meeting them! They made me want to quit my job and become a wedding planner!I did not want a wedding where everything was matching and I preferred to have a beautiful bunch of wild Scottish flowers, weeds and leaves that smelt beautiful then some waxed odourless wedding flowers.Â The trough meadow flowers was also done in the same spirit of a wild meadow being more beautiful to me than a highly cultivated flowerbed.Â The Byre has beautiful high rafters so I wanted to bring attention to the space of the byre by hanging the flowers up high on wood. I also did not want to have big bunches of flowers on the tables which would block people talking to each other over dinner…so thats why we took the big bunches of flowers on the table and lifted them up to the ceiling.Â Â I wanted to have some souvenirs from the wedding day itself. As the flowers only keep for a few days we pressed some of the flowers to create a flower gallery and I now have the same pressed flowers from the wedding hanging in our sitting room to remind us of our wedding day.“
When I started planning this shoot with Lindsey form Mack PhotographyÂ I knew I wanted to have some statement jewellery our model could wear as an alternative to the traditional bouquet. Â I sent Gemma from Planet FlowersÂ our pinterest boardÂ with some ideas for floral jewellery and was blown away with the results. Â This was a really challenging brief as we needed the flowers not only to be transported to the Island but to last for a few days whilst still looking fresh for the shoot, Gemma exceeded all expectations and pulled off these spectacular creations.Â Check out the succulent ring, it’s spectacular!
I loved the rustic mix of flowers at this beautiful wedding, the simple arrangements on the tables fitted perfectly with the style of the venue and didn’t interfere with the conversation.
Kirsten’s bouquet of dark red peony roses with splashes of green and white was beautiful and fit well with the style of their wedding. KirstenÂ and her bridesmaidsÂ had some beautifully delicate flowers in their hair and a gorgeous flower crown for the evening which Di from Myrtle &Â Bracken made in her van in the morning Â to keep them as fresh as possible.
I particularly loved the flower crowns at Samantha and David’s wedding both for the beautiful flower girls and Samantha’s stunning evening hairpiece.
Lisa’s Parents grew the venue flowers especially for the wedding, there were SO beautiful, I loved the beautiful mix of colours and delicate nature of the flowers, it made them even more beautiful knowing they had been grown especially for the occasion.
I loved the beautiful spring colours in Sam and Rob’s wedding flowers, particularly in Sam’s Bouquet. The flowers looked so fitting for their late February wedding.
I loved this beautiful floral arch created for Gillian and Matthew’s Wedding, venue dressing can sometimes be a bit OTT but I love it when the flowers are used to create or enhance features.
