Leading florist Amie Bone is renowned for her bold use of colour and her focus on luscious blooms. Her passion for flowers has taken her from Oxfordshire market stall operation to florist at leading London hotels, as well as go-to name for gorgeous wedding flowers. Here are her seasonal bouquet ideas to inspire you
Amie Bone blends beautiful shades, ranging from peach and pastel pink to flashes of acid yellow, for a delicate hand-tied bouquet that would be perfect for a spring or early summer wedding.
Rich burgundy, red and contrasting yellow – even accents of black – create a striking arrangement to match a strong colour theme. This arrangement would be the perfect foil to white or cream at a winter or early spring wedding celebration.
This beautiful and relaxed wedding bouquet shows the beauty of using one colour, accented with hints of yellow and grey-green in flower centres and foliage.
Soft contrasts can be particularly effective. Here peach, mauve and flashes of strong blue are balanced with accents of greenery, white Gypsophila (baby’s breath) and flowers in bud.
