These four gorgeous bouquet ideas are from leading florist Lavender Green Flowers, offering perfect inspiration for a wedding in any season of the year
With a base in Windsor and a store in Chelsea’s ‘wedding quarter’ on Fulham Road, Lavender Green Flowers has built a stellar international reputation for designing flowers for weddings, and the team’s creative designs have won them countless loyal fans. Here, they pick out four gorgeous bouquet ideas to inspire your own wedding plans.
This fragrant bouquet features freesia, lily of the valley, spray roses, with rosemary and delicate stephanotis. Equally appropriate at a high summer or winter wedding, the use of subtle white-on-white effects and rich textures shows that even the simplest palette can be used to dramatic effect.
Roses all the way
Perfect garden roses in peach, ivory and magenta are blended with traditional blooms, including sweet peas and veronica, for a lush bouquet that captures the essence of the English cottage garden.
The simplicity of one well-chosen flower is used by Lavender Green to create an elegant and timeless bouquet. Pale pink peonies make the perfect candidates for a romantic hand-tied arrangement and set the scene for an early summer wedding when these gorgeous blooms are at their very best.
This naturalistic bouquet includes bee delphiniums, green bellflowers and waxflowers with roses and olive leaves. Rich blues and softer whites and greens looks particularly effective in combination, creating a stunning focal point.
