Autumnal flowers

Michelle, who got married at the end of October, wanted a more unconventional wedding bouquet to match her unconventional wedding dress! She didn't want a balanced, round design but something that looked a bit more wild and thrown together. Her dress was brown with green and orange stitching so the bouquet worked well.

The bouquet utilised anigozanthos, leucospermum, gerbera, calla lilies, fern and oak leaves.

I also made two flower girl bouquets using orange roses, purple freesia and lily grass.

A gerbera and oak leaf wrist corsage for the mother of the bride.

And calla lily buttonholes for the men.

October wedding at Duddingston Golf Club

Margo and Allan were married at the end of October on a gloriously sunny day.

The bouquets were made with avalanche roses and finished with a collar of bouvardia.

Margo wanted the table centres to double up as gifts for her friends so I bought some reasonably priced vases from IKEA. I wrapped an aspidistra leaf around the florist's foam to conceal it, and then placed fern, roses, eustoma, freesia and dyed beargrass in the foam.

Bunches of roses and coloured beargrass formed simple yet effective decorations for the chairs during the ceremony.

Margo has already expressed her thanks, writing "Your flowers were beautiful. I can't thank you enough".
