I love winter weddings, even more so when I am asked to reflect the season in the designs. So I was particularly happy when Janice asked me to create her winter wedding flowers for her wedding at the end of November. Janice had chosen a wonderful purple shot with black dress for her bridesmaid and was wearing an amazing black dress with an ivory bodice herself. Clearly, I had to make the flowers equally stunning ! So here they are - Janice's winter wedding flowers.
Vintage bouquet of Memory Lane and Avalanche roses with freesias and mixed foliages. Janice had fallen in love with the beautiful Memory Lane rose and wanted a soft vintage type look to match the detail of her dress.
Buttonhole of Ivory rose with eucalyptus and viburnum tinus berries for the men.
Winter bouquet of Memory Lane and Avalanche roses with freesias, berries and mixed foliages for the bridesmaid. The Memory Lane rose works wonderfully well with purple toned dresses and the berries are perfect for depicting the black. The overall look is vintage and quite striking. I loved it !

The night before the wedding Janice held a birthday party and I was asked to create low table designs with tall candles with a strong Christmas look in rich reds. I loved this, sort of a floral birthday cake with mixed red roses, mini pine cones and seasonal foliages !
That just leaves me to say thank you so much Janice and Andy for asking me to design and create your wedding flowers for you. I loved working your beautiful and unusual colours into strong wintery designs. And very many congratulations on your marriage, I hope you had a wonderful day.
