Brides Bouquet

Here is a recent bouquet we created for a wedding on HMAS Stirling, Garden Island near Rockingham.

Trailing Style Wedding Bouquet with Oriental Lilliums, Roses and Ivy

It is a simple and elegant bouquet with Oriental Lilliums, Roses and Ivy. As the bride was overseas until a few days before the wedding, the flowers were organised by consulting with the groom and the bride sending pictures via email – this way we managed to create the very look the bride wanted and she was very happy with her flowers. The ivy, along with the pale cream roses, creates a nostalgic, romantic look while the oriental lilliums add some showiness.

 

 

Florist 911

Last Saturday was a very busy day for us with three weddings for that day. To add to the chaos only one of the weddings had been booked in advance!

I received a call early Saturday morning saying that the brides bouquet from another florist was the wrong colour – “The bride is crying – how quickly can you do a bouquet of 50 Red Roses?”  Usually this is an hour or two’s work – but this day I got it done in 45 mins. Usually every single Rose would be wired but on this occasion there just wasn’t enough time so some of  the flowers in the centre of the bouquet had to go without.

After the emergency was over, and we made a quick hand-tied bouquet for a casual wedding, we could get back to the beautiful Calla Lily (Zantedeschia) Trailing Style Bouquet (pictured) for that afternoon. This is a fully wired bouquet – due to the thickness of the Calla’s stems it was not practical to use a bridie holder. However, the Calla’s hold a lot of water in their stems so it is not necessary to have a water source – the flowers will look beautiful and fresh all day.
