Wild at Heart founder and leading floral designer Nikki Tibbles gives her tips for divine wedding flowers that will be a focal point of your celebration
At weddings the team at Wild at Heart love to give venues focal points – often with a statement piece. This might include beautiful floral arches that the bride can walk through to the ceremony or a wall of flowers to serve as a picturesque backdrop for photographs.
As well as flowers, also consider using trees. For instance, an oversized tree will add a sense of scale and grandeur to your wedding, or you could have a placement tree as a creative way of displaying the table plan at your wedding – even an avenue of beautiful blossom trees at an outdoor spring wedding.
Simpler scene setting is made easy at an outdoor wedding – especially if you have a fantastic location with a view – and these simple hand-tied arrangements dressing the guests’ chairs add a romantic flourish.
But it’s not just about big statement pieces. At Wild at Heart we often use flowers and greenery as personalised place settings, and this adds the perfect finishing touch to weddings. Here a small silver bucket is laden with a colourful arrangement of cut flowers and fragrant garden herbs.
A posy or small arrangement of blooms and herbs incorporated into your tablesettings can pick up on your main colour theme, as well as being a fragrant keepsake for guests to take home with them as a reminder of your day.
