There are gorgeous white roses in bloom in my front garden at the moment, they are like little white brides dancing in the wind! This time of the year is so rich with divine sweet smelling blooms. With such beauty around it is no wonder weddings have always gone hand in hand with the art of floristry. With this in mind, I wanted to share with you some of the most beautiful uses of wedding day floristry.
Don't you just love the idea of flowers cascading down from above, like a chandelier? These lovely floral arrangements are made to hang from a beam or ceiling, either indoors or outdoors. In Aleksandra Schutz's floral arrangements for Ashley and Trevor's wedding she channelled the Latvian tradition of threading flowers to create simple and effective floral leis to hang from the ceiling. Wouldn't they look absolutely lush at a summery garden wedding?
Wedding arbors, arches or doorways decorated with flowers can really add colour, beauty and fragrance to an outdoor ceremony. I especially love when they frame the bride and groom as they say 'I do.'
Decorative tree-like structures adorned with flowers turn venues into blooming forests of colour and scent.
Wedding swings could be a truly unique and beautiful addition to your wedding venue when decorated by a florist, and would make for great wedding photographs after the ceremony!
I'm sure many of you will agree that there is nothing more beautiful than a fresh bouquet of flowers on a wedding day, apart from the bride of course! Flowers bring such a sense of celebration to a wedding. They can set the theme, the mood, and the atmosphere of an entire day. They can be vibrant and fresh, or soft, fragrant and romantic.
Floral stylist Aleksandra says, "Flowers help create momentous occasion and provide fulfilment to the senses; scent, sight and touch. It's admiring nature at its best no matter what your budget is. Keeping with the season is best, and it's lovely to use flowers when they're at their peak."
