Flowers, Flowers Everywhere...

There are no limits when it comes to flowers for your wedding! They can feature everywhere so do not feel limited to just having flowers in your bouquet and as table arrangements.

There are many ways that flowers can transform a venue into your absolute dream. Imagine staircases with runners of flowers and foliage, hanging floral chandeliers, garlands wrapped around verandas and marquee posts, and that’s just for starters.

You can also consider having a statement piece such as a beautiful arch of flowers, a breathtaking flower wall or a bespoke tree to create a memorable feature at your wedding. Cover a plain and uninteresting wall with wild, rambling roses and vines to make it into a feature – it will also create a great backdrop for photos!

I also love simply filling large vases and urns with an abundance of flowers to make a real statement to an area. Tree canopies are also beautiful and romantic and create a stunning talking point over the wedding breakfast.

Then there is the wedding cake (one of my favourite parts to a wedding!) where fresh flowers, whether featured on top the cake or carried throughout the design, can be colour co-ordinated to the wedding theme, providing additional wow-factor to that all important moment of cutting the cake.

The creative ways that you can incorporate flowers throughout your wedding can make it truly unique and special, so let your imagination run wild!
