I’ve finally had the chance to catch up with writing my blog posts as the main wedding season draws to a close. It’s also be a great opportunity for me to look back on the year.
It’s wonderful to see all the fabulous weddings we’ve worked on and I’m always so delighted when couples generously share their wedding photographs. Although I always photograph the flowers before and during set up, they never look as good as when they are with the people they are made for.
As the nights draw in it’s lovely to look back at the fresh early summer blooms that you can see here for Justyna and Richard’s June wedding at Warwick Castle.
If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know that back in the New year I predicted a trend for blush colours. Well boy did that prediction come true! It’s certainly been a year for the stunning cream ‘Vendela’ roses that you can see here and the beautiful blush pink ‘Sweet Avalanche’ rose both of which Justyna chose for her bridal bouquet.
Another one of my predictions was for the hydrangea flower. We’ve been working with this flower for many years but this year it really was arriving at our workshop all the time as brides were so keen to have it for their wedding.
You can see in the photographs here that they featured in virtually every aspect of Justyna and Richard’s wedding flowers from the bridal bouquets to the candelabras, pedestal arrangements and top table flowers. The only things they weren’t in were the buttonholes and corsages as they’re not suitable.
Hydrangeas have that classic elegance with a nod to the vintage look. I think the last time we used them on this scale was for Kate’s summer wedding that you can see here.
