The scent of an English-grown David Austin rose. The rustle of poppies as they brush stems with foliage. The delicacy of peonies adorning an archway… Plan an event that enchants every sense with these floral design ideas.
A luscious and abundant floral arrangement will add instant impact to a space, but so too will a hundred single stems.
One of my favourite wedding floral design tips is to choose a bloom you want to celebrate and feature it many times over, in many different ways.
Think single stems in clusters of bud vases or trailing flower heads hanging from a chandelier.

What better way to welcome guests to an event than with a floral feature? This could be an arch that unfurls around a doorway or a structure that frames the aisle.
Add a modern twist by attaching blooms in an asymmetric design or pack them in abundantly for traditionally romantic wedding floral design ideas.
Ways with wildflowers
Embrace the trend for wildflower-inspired wedding floral design ideas with a green table runner.
Swap simple eucalyptus for an enchanting blend of foliage and wildflowers. The result is a pretty pastel swathe that decorates the length of the table.
Gone are the days when wreaths were floral designs of winter alone. Now, all manner of hoops, chandeliers and wreaths are garnished with garden-inspired blooms before being suspended from the ceiling, hung in groups of three from the wall or positioned as the perfect backdrop.
Towers of flowers
Once upon a time, martini glass wedding floral design ideas were all the rage. But while fashions and flowers change, the same perks still apply.
Tall arrangements to top tables that billow with ivy, peonies and roses add fragrance, romance and drama.
By raising the height of arrangements, they add even more impact as you enter the room. But when you’re ready to take your seats, your eye line remains clear, making for happy guests who can easily socialise without any compromise on floral style.
