Wild and natural colourful bouquet

Soft pastel shades will always be popular in bridal bouquets, but I have begun to see some really beautiful bright and colourful wedding flowers recently and wanted to showcase my favourites. These are bouquets that don’t just have the odd pop of colour, these are ones that I think are bursting and overflowing with vibrant flowers, and that with the deft hand of a talented florist have been combined skillfully into an effortless arrangement.

As always, I’ve shared my favourite bouquet at the top of the post – I love it for the different heights with some blooms that look like they are trying to escape or stand out a little more than their peers, and for the unkempt fern fronds.

This bouquet below is so sunny and cheerful with its shades of apricot and raspberry, and the silvery green foliage nestled amongst the big blousy blooms.

I clearly have a soft spot for bouquets with tendrils, like this loose bouquet full of tangerine, magenta and white blooms, touches of pale lilac blue scabious and those untamed strands of foliage.

seasonal wedding flowers with wild grasses and berries

Following up from my post about using grasses in wedding arrangements and bouquets, I wanted to share some pictures of from Susanne at The Blue Carrot in Cornwall, one of the businesses listed in the flower section of the directory.  She got in touch with me after the original blog post to say that she loves using grasses in her arrangements and to share a couple of pictures.

Thought you’d all like to see some on a dreary January afternoon!  Any favourites?

I love these deep wine colours with the silvery green grasses and foliage, and the spray of blackberries too.

Ethereal summer wedding

I’m still hanging onto thoughts of summer despite the bitter chill in the air.  This wedding reminds me of all those things I love about summer and the kind of summer you dream of.

This is the kind of wedding I’d like to go to – the tables are decorated in an understated way with the odd colourful flower adding bursts of cheeriness, but otherwise unfussy and beautiful.
