Capturing the moment in a bouquet


Spring has sprung, and with it comes the excitement of creating my first bridal bouquet of the year, filled with the most exquisite Spring blooms.


One of the many joys of working with the seasons is the ever-changing ingredients; each bouquet is a completely unique design, never to be replicated exactly the same way again.



This week, I had the pleasure of crafting a bridal bouquet featuring a gorgeous mixture of hellebores, early cherry blossom, anemones, tulips, ranunculus, and narcissus.


Pulling the ingredients together

For this particular wedding, I curated a palette of Spring pastels, steering clear of anything 'wishy-washy.’ The inclusion of the darker hellebores provided depth to the arrangement, seamlessly transitioning from the delicate pinks of the ranunculus and tulips to the whites of the anemones. And, of course, no bouquet is complete without scent; here, the delicate fragrance of narcissus rooted all our senses firmly in the moment of Spring.

Creating

Unlike our customary spiral technique used in gift bouquets, this bouquet was formed in my hand. I do this by holding a delicate framework of the woody stems in my hand and carefully weave in the softer spring blooms. This allows a bouquet that is filled with a sense of lightness and romance, allowing each flower to radiate its own natural beauty.


As always, the bouquet was finished with one of our naturally dyed silk ribbons in a soft, feminine pink. Its long, trailing ends added to the romantic and whimsical vibe, perfectly complementing the Spring bouquet created for our bride.
