Wedding Flowers – watching the pennies…

With the sun shining on a Friday afternoon in March we are planning our wedding courses for the summer.  Grabbing the light is important – flowers photograph so much better in natural light than in the studio.

Wedding flowers do not have to cost a fortune.  Always look for creative ways of using seasonal flowers, lots of foliage and cheaper flower varieties that you may have never considered before.  Often it is how you use them that matters!

Here we have a simple hand-tied bridal posy using carnations.  They are a variety that is multi-toned and used together are just as effective as more expensive hydrangea, roses or peonies.  They are also easy to work with and last a very long time.

If you would like to learn to create wedding flowers do take a look at our wedding courses – we have a great variety available  - take a look here>> Wedding Courses

Little can be gorgeous!

Creating lots of smaller arrangements and using them grouped together can have just as much impact as a massive table centre.  I love the vintage style (my husband says it is because I am getting old) using old containers filled with flowers that look that they have been lovingly put together.  

These honey jars have cleverly disguised floral foam in them - allowing a natural look with precision placing!   If you would like to learn more, why not book on our Parties & Events Workshop on 24th April - you might just get inspired!
