A wild and natural bridal bouquet of fragrant blooms and trailing jasmine for a Scottish wedding



Hi everyone! A quick message here from Charlie – I’m really sorry that it’s been so quiet on the blog lately, but we’ve got loads of great guest posts coming up. There’s some gorgeous floral prettiness on the blog today, and coming up soon a beautiful Bedouin tent real wedding and a competition. Hope all your wedding plans are going well!

In order to find the loveliest inspiration and ideas for my readers I trawl the internet and blogs on the hunt for only the very best.  When it comes to flowers, sometimes I spot a bouquet and am convinced that it must have been created by one of our talented flower farmers or florists – and quite often I’m right.

This is one such bouquet that I spotted on this Fairytale Scottish Castle Wedding and thought it was just the kind of wild and natural style that many of our TNWC recommended florists dream up – indeed, it is from one of our Scottish contingent, the lovely Pyrus.


So I thought it would be nice to get in touch with Fiona and Natalya from Pyrus to find out a little more about this bouquet and its bride:

“Our bride was Canadian and had chosen a Scottish castle to be married in to reflect the couple’s families heritage.  She has a background in fashion and asked for wildly romantic flowers with a touch of the avant garde to offset her dramatic dress and full veil.  We were keen to pick out some of the colours from her tartan Louboutin’s which were key to her look and suggested a vibrant, rich palette to reflect early summer with touches of dusky pinks to tie in with the blush tone of her gown.”


“Large bouquets are certainly in vogue at the moment and the full gathered skirts of the wedding dress were perfectly suited to dense blousy blooms and movement using jasmine trails from our glasshouse.  We wanted to create lots of impact with a sense of quirkiness and individuality representative of the bride herself.”  

“Fragrance is particularly important to us in our work, so to include perfumed blooms such as jasmine, peonies and roses to leave a lasting scent memory of the wedding day was important. As a personal touch we were asked to include a family pendant which we fastened to the bouquet with lots of tartan ribbon to reference the incredible Scottish setting of Culzean Castle.”


I’m certainly loving the trend towards the big blousy bouquets many with trailing foliage and flowers – how about you?  Are you inspired by the larger bouquets for your own wedding?
