Floristry is part of most wedding day celebrations. Bouquets and buttonholes are commonplace, but in the past couple of years I’ve noticed a move towards more theatrical and dramatic creations, including flower walls and archways….which I’m loving!!

I’ve also seen floral jewellery in my ‘styled shoot’ editorial work. I’m seriously hoping that this catches on as they look so beautiful and different!

Angela from Ilkley’s Floral Dance is a guru in all things blooms and has the following tips for couples planning their wedding flowers;

  • Bring pictures from Pinterest/Instagram/magazines to your wedding consultation, as a starting point and a way to explain what you have in mind.

  • See fresh flowers, in person, before you make your choices, as a lot of photographs in the media are highly filtered/edited and can be deceptive.  

  • Discuss with your chosen florist, whether it is possible to create something that can be moved around the venue, to really make the most of your investment (for example a flower archway which can be used for the ceremony - but then re-purposed as a photo booth back drop, during the evening reception!

  • If flowers are are not in season they may be difficult to sources, or cost significantly more.

I’m excited to see what floral beauties, 2019 will bring! :-)
