Lottie Hawkins from Ruffels Flowers gives us some of her top tips for finding the perfect flowers.
Bouquets and buttonholes – “There is a definite trend towards flowers that mean something to the couple personally. Many are also more aware of the environmental impact and are moving towards locally sourced options and an abundance of greenery. Brides are keen on a natural style for their bouquet, with some opting for smaller arrangements and a natural bohemian look with a combination of dried and fresh flowers.”
Backdrops – “I think that couples are moving away from the statement flower walls and are looking for more natural garlands and arches. Living trees of branches interwoven with blooms and lights make a beautiful organic statement.”
Venue styling – “Hanging installations have a huge wow factor and create a stunning focal point. There are so many looks that can be created using dried flowers and grasses, trailing ivy or blooms hanging from the ceiling. Sustainability and personalisation of the wedding flowers is another area that’s becoming popular. Placing potted plants on tables that both the couples and friends and family can take home with them is a great way of making your wedding day live on.”
