Blooming Brides can turn into Bridezillas if their Bonbonnerie isn’t the perfect hue of Blue, the Boutonniere is Broken or a Beauty treatment is out of their Budget.


Choosing flowers is one of the most enjoyable parts of wedding planning. The scents, the shapes and the luscious blooms are such a nice addition to your wedding day.

Tying together a bouquet doesn’t have to be ‘just another detail’ but can be personalised to set off your dress, contrast the flowers, tie into your ‘look’ and even create a whimsical touch.

Whilst there are many different variations in bouquets- from flowers to shapes to size and more. There are also different ways a bouquet can be pulled together. This is only limited by your imagination! From a tie of simple ribbon, to the use of textures like rope and beads.
