Wedding Bouquet Recipe
A Pretty Spring Posy in Peach
Toni from Magdalen Hill is back today with the prettiest wedding bouquet recipe for you! Using romantic, country garden style Spring blooms in the softest palette of peach and cream, she has created a bouquet that simply couldn’t be any lovelier! And paired with the last bouquet recipe, that stunning sheath you can’t possibly have forgotten, it’s a great example of 2 very different bouquets using almost the same flowers. As always Natalie McNally has captured the whole creative process beautifully and Toni has kindly shared the full recipe – so you know exactly what to ask your florist for!…..
Isn’t it pretty? And what a fabulous finishing touch that matching lace ribbon makes!
Here’s a little something from Toni about this beautiful Rose bouquet.…. “As many bouquets this season lean more towards the relaxed, sometimes wild, deconstructed styles, an all-round posy style was more in keeping with the understated elegant day my bride Jane wanted to create. With blooms evenly placed throughout the bouquet a tidier more orderly appearance was achieved. An assortment of White O’Hara, Campanella, Tiffany, Jana and Akito Roses gave a soft garden feel to the bouquet with their different sized blooms. These were softened with fluffy ranunculus and freesia for scent, whilst the addition of Dusty Millar foliage relaxed the rounded form perfectly. Length was given to the bouquet with several lengths of peach toned lace and cream cotton ribbon, which also referenced the bridesmaids dresses. Holding this bouquet was a fuss free option for Jane, as no matter how it was held, or from what angle it was photographed, there were plenty of flowers visible. Something to consider when choosing your bouquet. ” As we’re about to dive into every pretty detail, be sure to have your pinning finger ready!…..
Can’t you just imagine the scent with all of those roses and freesias? Over to Toni again for the recipe…..
Bridal Bouquet Price: $$/$$$ (Budget Key $ = Thrifty – $$$$$ = Lavish)
A bouquet for the bride who: is wanting to achieve a simple elegance on their wedding day in a soft, timeless way, while still keeping on trend with colour and bloom selection. Although the all-round bouquet is traditionally considered more formal, the relaxed mix of blooms and the addition of foliage makes this bouquet incredibly versatile. It would look just as perfect for a boho beach wedding, as it would for a polished city celebration!
Ask your florist for: An all-round hand tied bouquet of roses with spring blooms in pastel tones.
Season Available: The blooms that feature in this bouquet are available from late Autumn through to Early summer. However, Spring blooms could be substituted for summer varieties to create a similar look and feel. Be sure to talk to your florist about what is available in your location at the time of year you plan to marry.
As always, a huge thank-you to Toni and Natalie for their beautiful work on this bouquet and shoot.
