February is often thought of as a difficult time for flowers and I am often asked about availability for this time of year. In fact it is a fabulous time for wedding flowers and brides who choose this month really do have a wonderful range of flowers to choose from. Here, our bride's favourite flower was the sunflower and she was looking for some really bright wedding flowers in shades of yellow and blue to cheer up a mid February day.
And so here they are, Emma's gloriously bright and cheerful wedding flowers - featuring the mini sunflower - in February.
Bouquet of sunflowers, blue agapanthus, mini narcissus, craspedia and solidago for Emma. I used the mini sunflower here. They are gorgeous but just one thing to be aware of if you are considering them for your wedding - they are surprisingly heavy little things.
Yellow and blue bouquet in the natural country style that is big news for 2012.
Buttonholes of craspedia, solidago and grasses for the men. Craspedia are funky little things that are now getting very popular for weddings, I think we will be seeing a lot more of them in 2012 and beyond
Ladies buttonhole of double lisianthus, myrtle and pearls
Bouquets of sunflowers, craspedia and grasses for the bridesmaids
Mini version of single sunflower, craspedia and grasses for the flower girl.
Sunflower bouquets all boxed and ready to go.
Throw bouquet of mini sunflowers, blue agapanthus, mini narcissus, craspedia and solidago. I was asked to make a bouquet for throwing so Emma could keep her original wedding bouquet. This one is a smaller, simpler version of the bridal bouquet. There was only one problem with it, apparently this too was to pretty to throw !
That just leaves to say thank you so much Emma for choosing me to design and create your wedding flowers for you. I really loved working with these wonderfully cheerful flowers.
And very many congratulations on your marriage.
