Your Wedding Flowers

Fresh flowers are the essential element of every wedding, and these tips will give you ideas on how to use them for bouquets, centrepieces, flower arbours, hanging installations and cake decorations!


Every bride needs a gorgeous wedding bouquet. From a classical round bouquet to a trendy nosegay, you should choose a style, colour and size to match your beautiful dress, but you can also play with elements of your wedding theme and add a pop of colour or a fun detail to your posy.

Flower Arbour

Flower arbour is a wonderful addition to your ceremony venue, and makes a fantastic backdrop for your wedding photos. It is ideal for outdoor ceremonies at the beach, in the countryside or in a beautiful garden. You can make it with while blooms and chiffon or tulle, or use colourful flowers and foliage if you prefer whimsical bohemian style to a classical one.

Hanging Installations

Hanging floral installations will instantly transform your reception venue and add romantic flair to it. We love the floral chandelier trend which is very popular at the moment, but you can also suspend single blossoms in glass bulbs above the tables.

Table Arrangements

Fresh flowers are perfect for table arrangements as well. From vintage centrepieces to bright blooms or potted plants, there is a variety of styles to choose from, so work with your florist to create arrangements which will correspond with your wedding theme and colour palette.

Cake Topper

Finally, why not use flowers as cake adornments! We love fresh blooms on top of a delicious tiered naked wedding cake, but you can think of a way to use flowers on almost any style of cake. White roses and peonies make a stylish cake topper for a classical ivory cake, but popular styles also include ombre flowers and vibrant blossoms combined with foliage.
