Features in Wedding Flower Magazine

Going through all my posts set to draft, I've come across this one. I was so honoured and overjoyed at being in this glossy magazines for 3 consecutive issues, one as a collaboration and 2 for my own work.
Unfortunately it closed down earlier this year but was a staple of many wedding florists and brides to show choice and colour available for your blooms.
As I still love the designs featured I thought I would show you all, and I still have many copies for you to look through at consultations here at The Studio.



The first time being featured was with a lovely group of ladies on a day course I booked to learn the techniques of creating large scale displays, particularly ceiling hoops. It was a fabulous day and I still treasure the images the lovely photographer Laura Calderwood shared with us all.


As creatives we are always, or should be, willing to learn and expand our knowledge to create new features or up to date and time saving ways of working, while being able to deliver more for our clients and wow their guests.


The second issue I featured in was with these glorious peach flowers. I also got an extra feature in the Flower look book.
Coral and peach are still popular today and the flowers designs chosen are still as relevant as ever.


Which one is your favourite?


The last and third issue I was in was with these perfect purple designs.


Purple never really goes away, I create several weddings in purple every year, so again still as relevant as ever.



If you love any of these designs and would like to talk through your options for your wedding day please get in touch. You can also book appointments online here

Sunflowers at Markham Moor Inn

Our lovely couple held their summer wedding breakfast at The Markham Moor Inn.

Low posies made a bright table centrepiece using the same flowers as the bridal bouquet, sunflowers, freesia and cornflowers, with the addition of yellow chrysants and yellow spotted laurel.




Small yellow santini chrysants are like mini sunflowers



The wedding cake was adorned with more sunflowers, freesia and cornflowers




Cake topper of sunflowers and freesia and corsages on each tier



Small posies were provided for adding to small jars collected by the bride for extra decoration



Lastly a thank you hand tie in the same wedding flowers for that extra special person who helped set the day.



Sunflowers are not to everyones taste at a wedding but they are a bright happy flower and add a sense of fun to the day.

Bride sunflower bouquet

Sunflowers are a popular wedding flower although many people think they are probably not suitable. Florists can get lovely sized flowers just right for your bouquets and buttonholes, just ask!

This lovely bride wanted a bright bouquet with this sunny flower included. We added another favourite flower, freesia and cornflowers for a hint of blue.



Due to the sunflowers we bound the length of the stems in satin ribbon



Beautiful sunflowers, freesia and cornflowers


The groomsmen all wore a single, small, sunflower for their buttonholes



I present these on a board for easy collection on the day


Traditional lapel corsages were presented to the special ladies, these were of freesia florets and foliage





All ready for their special day.


More to follow on the wedding breakfast set up.

If you have a favourite flower and want it included in your wedding blooms get in touch for a chat.

Pretty wedding flowers at St Peter at Eastgate


Unfortunately the weather on this wedding day was not great, but they do say rain on your wedding day is good luck! A wet (marriage) knot is harder to break and therefore the marriage lasts longer.

The bride asked for pretty posies to be attached to the open gateway of the church to welcome the guests.


Pretty pink santini chrysants, pale alstroemeria, gyp and herbs were tied with hessian bows to the gate posts.


The church doorway was framed with 2 of my gorgeous bay trees and ribbons.


Once inside the church each row of chairs had a pretty gyp ball attached with a hessian bow.


Simple understated design but en mass brightens up the aisle


The church screen was adorned with fern, myrtle and ivy trails



Looking to the rear of the church as the groom would do waiting for his bride.

Country style bride bouquet with gyp bridesmaid flowers

A pretty spring wedding with country style bride's bouquet.
Some flowers can be overlooked for weddings but are perfectly cute and help you keep to budget. This bouquet included, alstroemeria, santini chrysants, gyp, eustoma and ferns, ivy and herbs. Creating a gorgeous trailing hand tie.



Pretty pink blooms with gyp interwoven throughout and stems bound with twine to match the country style of the day.


Alstroemeria and santini chrysants come in many colours and with many flowers per stem are real value for your money.


The bridesmaids carried gyp ball posies



Bouquets waiting to be delivered to their ladies.


Another lovely natural wedding with a bride and bridesmaid posies.

Blush pink rose and gyp wedding

Blush pink is a popular colour for wedding flowers but everyones take on what the colour is is different. To me these roses are perfect, very pale pink and a gorgeous shaped rose. Couple these blooms with gyp and the traditional asparagus fern and you have a very pretty bouquet to carry down the aisle.



Hand tie bride bouquet with soft asparagus fern, roses and gyp.


The 3 gorgeous bridesmaids each carried a bouquet of gyp



The groom matched his bride with a blush rose, gyp and fern buttonhole


While the groomsmen matched the bridesmaids with simple gyp buttonholes.


Buttonholes all ready for the boys


Bouquets all ready for delivery to their ladies


I was asked to provide one display for the venue. A gyp top table runner with a few red roses to match the table theme.


Your bouquets and tables don't necessarily need to match throughout. If you're torn between two themes, go with it at different stages of the day. It's your day you can style it how you want to!
Keeping one flower or colour but mixing it up does help continuity



Are you having a small or intimate wedding? Looking for a few bouquets and buttonholes? I will always talk you through your options and provide flowers to your requirements, whatever the flowers or colours! It is and always will be your day.
