Exciting times ahead! You may well be on the way to planning your wedding and now the time has come to choose your wedding florist in London. I can’t tell you how many floral treats will be in store.
The floral world is brimming with creativity and passion, fragrance and beauty. Each London wedding florist has their own signature aesthetic and style of working with couples. So it’s important to take your time and find the right match for you.
Try a few of my top tips to help you along a little, in what may seem will like an overwhelming leap into the unknown.
1 Choosing your floral style
Before diving into details of which glories are seasonably available, whether you want your bouquet to be hand-tied, how many buttonholes, style of floral arch and so forth, you need to consider which style of flowers and foliage you have a preference for, eg. soft and gentle, brightly coloured, flamboyant or subtle.
Some will rush for tightly packed balls of peonies. For others, the magic lies in wild, asymmetric designs.
Couples come to me as their London wedding florist because they adore flowers with a freshly picked aesthetic. I bring the beauty and abundance of country flowers to weddings in the heart of the city.
2 Trace back to the roots
Where will your flowers come from? I’m a London wedding florist with an affinity for English garden styles and British-grown blooms. Think of a herbaceous border.
I source some of my wedding flowers from the markets, but I also take great care to work with English flower farms too.
The result, stunning and delicious designs that encapsulate the essence of each season and its charms, whether that’s blossom, berries or blousy peonies. By visiting flower markets, I can source a range of flowers that make your dreams achievable.
3 Create a moodboard of ideas
As your London wedding florist, I’ll work closely with you to understand your floral design vision. You might be head over heels for heavenly scented David Austin roses or have fallen for the drama of dahlias. We’ll talk varieties, colour schemes and arrangements for as long as you like.
But if you’re not green fingered, don’t panic! A simple Pinterest board or a few cut-outs from bridal magazines are all I need to understand your dream.
It’s my job to open up the possibilities of country-style wedding flowers to you and it’s one I absolutely love to do. So, with your wedding date, budget and theme in mind, I’ll guide you to pick the perfect English garden blooms that instantly evoke the romance of the country.
