Charlotte (the bride) fell totally in love with the deep burgundy red black baccara rose (in photo above) the minute she saw it in our portfolio.

As you can see in the photo left it fitted perfectly with the deep red colour of the bridesmaid’s dresses.

The black baccara rose has the most wonderful velvet appearance to it, which give it a very rich opulent appearance. We have used this rose many times as it’s one of the darkest colours available.


Bridal Bouquet – Handtied Posy

Bridal bouquet featuring black baccara roses.For Charlotte’s handtied posy I combined this rose with deep red hypericum berries and leucadendron. It was finished with a steelgrass collar that Charlotte had seen on another one of our bouquet designs.

Brides often get inspiration from our bouquet designs and then we combine them with the bride’s ideas to create original bouquet designs.

To complete its luxurious appearance, I placed diamante pins in the centre of the roses. This really helped to highlight the deep red colour of the roses.

Diamante pins in the bouquet also work really well if you’ve got diamante bead detailing on your dress.

Bridesmaids Bouquets

The cream colour worked wonderfully in front of the deep red of their dresses and the berries linked the bouquets together.

For their bouquets we used one of our favourite roses the cream ‘Vendela’ rose. It’s a favourite not only for it’s wonderful warm colour but it is also a beautiful shape.

A recent wedding at Warwick castle.The deep burgundy red colour theme also fitted perfectly with the couple’s wedding venue – Warwick Castle. We placed a long and low table arrangement on the registrar’s table in the State Dining Room that combined both the cream and deep burgundy red flowers. On the tables in the great hall we placed large goldfish bowls filled with floating deep red roses.

Here is what was said about the wedding flowers “the flowers were superb, matched everything beautifully”.
