We’ve had such a wonderful year working with so many lovely couples and decorating at beautiful wedding venues all over Cheshire, Manchester and Lancashire. Every wedding is different and unique to each couple and even similar flowers can have such a different effect depending on the setting they are decorating. I thought it would be nice rather than just looking back at each wedding I would put together a few posts looking more closely at wedding bouquet designs in fresh flowers and silk flowers, ceremony decor and reception flowers. Over the next few days I will share with you some of my favourites from the year and it will hopefully give you some ideas if you are looking for inspiration for your own wedding flowers and decorations.
Fresh flower wedding bouquets
Country garden and natural wedding bouquet designs
If you want a more relaxed and informal look to your flowers and decorations then a natural, country garden styled wedding bouquet with lots of different flowers and a selection of colours will work perfectly. The flowers are arranged more randomly in the design and separated with greenery to create different levels. The wedding bouquet can be styled in a loose unstructured design or a trailing shower to create a longer bouquet.
Dusky pinks and shades of mauve have been a very popular choice for 2018 and this is likely to continue in 2019 with other dusky tones. Other pastel shades like light blue and coral are also likely to be popular for summer 2019 especially with Pantone announcing Living Coral as their colour of the year.
We have created lots of gorgeous textured bouquets throughout the year, often featuring beautiful large and small headed roses, along with the full petalled garden roses, delicate astrantia, feathery astilbe and fluffly hydrangea heads. No matter the time of year there are always plenty of flower types to choose from and if you prefer minimal greenery then these textured wedding bouquet designs are the perfect option.
This style bouquet can be created in a round, hand tied style or an elegant shield shape, with the flowers going narrower at the bottom creating an elongated design.
Compact hand tied bouquets
If your style is more elegant with clean lines and very minimal greenery to create more formal designs then a compact, round bouquet may suit you the best. These designs usually only contain one or two types of flowers and either all the same colour or a very subtle mix of shades. Larger, high impact flowers are more popular for this style, such as roses, hydrangea, peonies, and calla lilies.
