On Friday I had the pleasure of doing wedding flowers for a lovely couple getting married in Goldbrick House, Bristol. Catherine initially wanted to go down the traditional route of having red roses and Christmas foliage and berries, however her bridesmaids dresses prompted a colour theme switch! The bridesmaids wore a crimson/cerise colour and so the flowers were to revolve around a gorgeous palette of cerise, plum, crimson and greens.
Catherine wanted a simple hand-tied bouquet of all dark cerise roses, a fab variety called purple power this is really a large headed rose. I added a collar of ruskus foliage around the outside to frame the bouquet/ Finished off with ivory, satin ribbon, she was ready to go!
The bridesmaids had a mixture of plum calla lilies, purple carnations, cerise and plum ranunculus, astrantia and cerise roses. Catherine wanted the bouquets to be compact and full of flowers, with mininal foliage, however I used green hypericum between the flowers to add some zest and lift the flowers. I was more than happy with the results and it was great to do a less traditional colour scheme for a winter wedding. The flowergirl carried a pomander ball of carnations, germini and green hypericum berries. Carnations are making a comeback and they are great in work such as pomanders, What do you think?! Wishing the newly weds lots of love and happiness!
