Dusky pink and white Christmas wedding flowers

I have some catching up to do with blogging wedding flowers so today we are starting way back to Christmas. This is a two part wedding, bridal flowers today and then venue flowers on Friday. (Monday and Friday are going to be blog days for now)
I hope you enjoy these gorgeous blooms

I was asked to design a hand tie with some trailing flower element with not too much foliage for the bridal bouquet. Dusky pink and white was the colour scheme with a hint of navy.

The flowers chosen were roses, calla lily, freesia, viburnum berries and senecio foliage.

It is hard to capture the style of these bouquets in an image, but they do work well if you are looking for something that is a little different.
Stems were bound with white satin ribbon with silver thread added.

The 3 adult bridesmaids each carried a single large rose with silver senecio foliage collar.

Stems were bound with white ribbon and silver thread.

The Groom and best men wore a pink avalanche single rose with senecio foliage

and the rest of the groomsmen wore an avalanche rose with foliage.

If you are looking for wedding flowers be it for this Christmas, or next (or any date!!), and love what you see, please get in touch to book a consultation with Sandra. To book online click here

Flower crowns and other flower designs for your hair

Flower crowns are popular with my brides but there are many ways you can wear flowers in your hair.
In the first instance talk to whoever is helping you with your look on the day. Whether you are having a professional hairstylist or a friend they will help you decide on your hair style and whether this will be enhanced with flowers or not.
For a simple up do or for shorter hair simple silver grips with a few small blooms will add a touch of colour. Whether that is brighter colours

or delicate pastel blooms they will help you feel more bridal.

If you prefer larger blooms a single one can be added to a comb

and jazzed up with crystals if required.

For a smart up do or for loose curls an elongated comb design sits perfectly at the base of the crown.

For those of you with longer hair you could go for individually wired flowers to cascade through your style

or the ever popular gyp sprigs are lightweight enough to sit in the finest of hair.

Flower crowns can be half, 3/4 or full depending on style and whether wearing a veil.
Half can be worn as an Alice band or across the forehead.

Roses and gyp is a popular combination

or you could go for orchids and seasonal blooms for a statement piece

or more delicate blooms depending on the style of dress you have chosen.

3/4 crowns are perfect if you are wearing a veil. It will 'sit' more comfortable through the day.

Full flower crowns are adjustable with ribbon for comfort and can be as full as you want. From a row of delicate daisies

to roses and hydrangea and more.

I also offer flower crown workshops for hen parties and other celebrations. Flowers and colours can be co-ordinated to your wedding T&C's apply
Come along to the studio and try your hand at floristry with something to take away as you continue your celebrations.
