What goes into a wild and loose September wedding bouquet?
Charlie / 31 January 2012
I thought it would be nice to follow up from Rhiannon and Richard’s wild and natural Welsh wedding (it’s so beautiful – you must have a look if you haven’t seen it already) with more details of the wild looking bouquet Rhiannon carried. The bouquet in question was created by the wonderful Chloe of BareBlooms who is featured in The Natural Wedding Company directory.
I got in touch with Chloe to find out exactly what flowers she used to create Rhiannon’s bouquet, and to find out what look she had been asked to create. Chloe told me, “Rhiannon was so relaxed about her bouquet – she wanted something loose and wild and not too fussy.”
So what flowers did Rhiannon’s wild and loose bouquet include? “Rhiannon’s bouquet contained larkspur, echinacea, Dahlias, sage, cornflowers, cosmos, campanula lactiflora, sweet peas, nigella, fennel, verbena bonariensis, scabious, alchemilla, gaura lindheimeri, and jasmine.”
Chloe told me that just a few days before the wedding, Rhiannon got in touch to see if she could get two small posies for the bridesmaids. Their bouquets were similar to Rhiannon’s, “but Cosmos and Dahlias were more prominent, as well as some mint and asters, which weren’t in Rhiannon’s bouquet.”
