The Prettiest Bridal Bouquet of Purples & Pink
Good morning lovelies, Toni from Magdalen Hill is back today with yet another glorious wedding bouquet recipe for you – and I just know you’re going to love it! Created in a palette of purple and pink, today’s Spring bridal bouquet couldn’t be any prettier or more romantic! And it’s a great example of what magic can be created when you show a little trust in your wedding professionals by giving them a free rein and letting their expertise truly shine. Because that’s what lovely bride Jemma (you’ll meet her later) gave Toni when she created this stunner….. captured perfectly as always by Natalie McNally Photography
I do believe I spy some Dolcetto roses! I don’t know about you, but I have been utterly obsessed with them ever since the last bouquet recipe! And this time they’ve been joined by some heavenly blush roses, want to know what they are? Me too!
A little something from Toni herself, before we go any further ““I have been thinking about my bouquets and take back all the restrictions I put on you. I just want them to be amazing pinks, lilacs, white and just whatever else you think!!” – these words were music to my ears. With an intimate day planned, to celebrate with only their nearest and dearest, Jemma and Kase had a set amount they were able to allocate to their wedding florals. Jemma, a hairstylist who had worked with some of my previous brides, had been following my work for some time and had complete confidence in my design style. By keeping her brief loose, simply advising her chosen color scheme, and giving me the creative license to arrange to my heart’s content, Jemma enabled me to source a delicious collection of goodies and create a bridal bouquet that was not only lush and beautiful, but that was also within her budget.
The combination of texture and scent are what made this bouquet a sweet Spring treat. Lavender, lilac, sweet peas and geranium created an unforgettable fragrance. Garden favourites Misty, Scabiosa, fluffy ranunculas, Love in the Mist and pointy Chincherinchee added character and interest, while vintage style White O’Hara and Dolcetto Roses balanced the design and, as statement blooms, added a real sense of luxury.”
I am sure you will agree, this bouquet looks anything but budget! I love the mix of hues, just imagine the pretty colour options it would give you when it came to your bridesmaids.
Bridal Bouquet Price: $$$ (Budget Key $ = Thrifty – $$$$$ = Lavish)
A bouquet for the Bride who: has a limited budget but doesn’t want to compromise on style. Immensely versatile it would add some old world charm and a hint of vintage to any celebration, whether chic or rustic, casual or formal.
Ask your florist for: a hand-tied, garden style collection of blooms to best reflect your colour palette. If you’re a bride on a budget, be honest and discuss with them how much you have to allocate towards your bouquet. And be open to leaving the individual flower selection to them, as this will allow your florist to recommend seasonal blooms to create the best bouquet for your wedding, within your budget and without compromising on style or professional service. If meeting with your florist to request this exact bouquet, please be aware that the pricing may be higher due to ordering processes, and the seasonal supply and demand for specific blooms.
Season Available: The flowers used in this bouquet are available throughout Spring, although some do have a longer season. Just ask your florist for their recommendation if there are any not available when and where you’re getting married, as they will be able to suggest alternatives that best suit your wedding date, style and budget to achieve a similar look.
And because the lovely Natalie was also the wedding photographer, we’re fortunate enough to have some pictures of lucky bride Jemma carrying her beautiful bouquet…..
Doesn’t she look fabulous?? And this bouquet is absolutely one of my favourites – I can just imagine how incredible it must have smelled too!
