From a sweetly scented posy to a show stopping sheath, Anna from Botanica Naturalis shares the recipes for four unique wedding bouquets, set against a romantic woodland backdrop. Her tips for finding your floral style will also help you turn endless creative inspiration into a beautiful concept for your wedding day!
Stunning in its simplicity, Delphinium and Hyacinths feature in this presentation bouquet, perfectly complementing our bride Freya’s delicate floral hairpiece and swathes of tinted tulle.
White Rueben Proteas are natural showstoppers, but add a dusting of gold to take this gorgeous white sheath bouquet to the next level! It includes Eucalyptus, Erica, white Tulips and Hyacinths.
Our lovely bride carries her ‘Something Blue’, a petite posy of Forget Me Nots, Paper White Jonquils and Juliet David Austin Roses.
A celebration of colour and texture, this bouquet features orange and lemon David Austin Roses, Scabosia, magenta Anemones, Hyacinths, Peppercorn Berry, Minuet Roses, Silver Suede and Privot Berry – with stunning Climbing Spray Roses for both the bouquet and hair.
A hand woven stick sculpture creates a spectacular arch in a hidden clearing, where styled scene and natural setting become inseparable. Here we find Freya surrounded by breathtaking blooms and woodland treasures such as moss, mushrooms and quail eggs.
Finding your Bouquet Style
With so many different options, it’s hard to know how to go about finding the right style of bouquet for your wedding! Here are three key tips Anna offers her brides.
1. Find seasonal favourites. Are you a Spring Bride? Summer Bride? What are your favourite flowers in that season? Certain flowers lend themselves to different styles of bouquets.
2. Consider style and shape. What type of arrangement suits the style of your dress? A smaller posy would be a beautiful pairing with a tea length dress, or what about a flowing teardrop bouquet for a fitted lace gown?
3. Collect inspiration. I find brides are spoilt for choice with images of bouquets, so I ask them to show me their Pinterest boards and 9 times out of 10 the bride has a favourite, the one that she just can’t stop thinking about – this is the one she should choose. It’s your big day and looking down at your wedding bouquet and seeing all your personal favourites is a wonderful part of being a bride!
