For her wedding in Valentine's week, Ciara chose a colour scheme of burgundy and gold and a very soft,romantic vintage look for her flowers. Now we all know what happens to the price of red/burgundy flowers in Valentines week and here is a lovely idea for introducing a touch of the colour whilst still keeping the look soft and romantic. Skimmia, a lovely little shrub with pale burgundy berry like buds that are absolutely perfect for this look.
Vintage,bouquet in creams, golds and burgundy with a touch of green.Perfect for a winter wedding, Ciara's was in February. I've used Vendela roses, skimmia, lisianthus, paperwhites (for a touch of spring and the scent) with mixed foliages. A gorgeous compliment for an all over vintage styled lace dress.
Burgundy and cream vintage styled bouquet, perfect for the bridesmaids who wore burgundy. Again, it is a mix of roses, skimmia, lisianthus and paperwhites with mixed foliages.

A little corsage for Ciara's little girl. Lisianthus ( because it is soft and very lightweight) skimmia, ivy leaves and asparagus fern.

For the mum's a co-ordinating pin on corsage of rose, paperwhites and mixed vintage toned foliages.
