As there has been a trend for wedding flowers to have a more natural look we are being asked to create designs with more foliage in them. Beware of over doing the foliage as you can create a look that’s rather untidy or too large.
I think we achieved a great balance with Ella’s top table garland (above) between keeping it natural with trailing and hanging foliage without over doing it and using up too much of the table. I also added plenty of flowers to give it a soft pretty appearance.
“David and I absolutely loved the flowers and were so happy with the ease of communication throughout. Everyone on the day spoke about how beautiful the flowers were.”

Ella had candle centrepieces on all of her guest tables so I incorporated our mini hurricane vases with small church candles into her garland (photo above right). Garlands are a perfect choice if you want flowers to cover the whole length of the table.
When I first spoke to Gemma about creating her top table garland (photos above and below) she wanted the flowers to be more dominant than the foliage. However she still wanted a natural look. So I came up with the design you see here with flower clusters linked with trailing soft ruscus leaves and white Singapore orchids.
Unlike Ella top table design, Gemma did not want her garland to fall down the front of the table so we made sure it all sat of the edge of the table.
I love interpreting everyone’s ideas and coming up with unique designs that are perfect for each individual wedding. It always amazes me how you can slightly change some elements and come up with a design that’s unique.
Please contact me if you would like me to design your own unique wedding flowers.
