The bouquet that stole my heart
Honestly? What’s not to love about Philippa’s choice for her bridal bouquet? It had all the elements it should – colour, scent, movement, peonies and a rose call O’hara, finished with Liberty print fabric knots. Perfect.
When Philippa approached me she was so excited about all the different things they would have going on in there wedding. They were busy folding 1000 paper cranes as a couple, they had a fab band lined up, mum was busy making bunting, runners and all manner of soft dressings for the marquee, not to mention growing a host of flowers to create her own tablescapes.
How could I help? Well Philippa had her heart set on what can only be described as the ultimate English summer bouquet. It was to contain peonies, garden roses, sweetpeas and a host of herbs and other seasonal foliages. I was more than happy to oblige this, and enjoyed every second of creating this bouquet.
The rest of the bridal party co-ordinated with a posy for her bridesmaid, a wand for her flower girl, with everyone else sporting buttonholes or corsages finished with Liberty print knots. Honestly, when I first thought about becoming a wedding florist, this was the wedding I thought I’d be creating!
