Last weekend we created flower bouquets for two very different weddings.
The first one was very current in style – it featured poppy pods, berries, heather and unusual greens. Take a look at the Bride’s Bouquet:
Lots of texture in this bouquet! The flowers include cymbidium orchids, carnations and heather. There are various interesting greens, including parvifoglia eucalyptus, silver dollar eucalyptus and burgundy leucadendron. Here’s a look at the top of the bouquet:
Now for the boutonnieres for the Groom and Dad:
We used heather and poppy pods from the Bride’s bouquet to make a boutonniere for the Groom. For Father, a deep red carnation with hypericum berries. Black ribbon wraps the stems.
Now for the second wedding. This one is in brighter fall tones, and includes Circus roses. The only flowers required for this wedding were: one Bride’s bouquet and two arrangements for the house. Our customer brought in her own heirloom vases and we created designs in them.
Here’s a photo of the three designs:
The tall arrangement to the left was to place on a table in the front hall. What an entrance!
The smaller arrangement to the right was used as a centrepiece. And the Bride’s bouquet is in the front of the photo. We used Circus roses and Black Beauty sweetheart roses, along with hypericum, solidaster and alstroemeria for the bride. Green hydrangea and orange snapdragons enhanced this combination in the two arrangements.
Two different weddings, with their own unique style, and both quite beautiful!
