Colour Pops!

So many fantastic things to see at Chelsea Flower Show last week – with a passion for flowers and gardens I just didn’t know where to look next!  But one particular stand really caught my eye, for its fabulous displays of spring blooms in eye-popping colour combinations.

Think Colour....

I talk to lots of brides and know that choosing wedding flowers can be a bit of a worry.  Many people don’t know much about flowers and the choice of varieties and colours can seem bewildering.  So don’t worry if the only flowers you can name are roses and gerberas, we florists are here to help!

Start by thinking about the colours you like and whether you want a definite colour scheme to run through your day.  Simple one or two colour schemes can look fantastic and help to give a co-ordinated feel – take a look at the examples below.  This kind of scheme can seem easier to put together too as it limits the choices you have to make, but do speak to a florist at an early stage in your planning as some colours can be difficult to obtain in suitable flowers and at different times of year.

All white flower designs

Dazzle them with raspberries!

Caroline & David chose a gorgeous 'raspberry dazzle' colour for their bridesmaid dresses when they married in the winter - just right to bring a feeling of warmth to their special day.  Luckily we were able to find a rose in just the right shade called 'Purple Power' (although it's actually deep pink!) and this featured through all their flower designs, from Caroline's stunning shower bouquet to the table centres and even the sumptuous cake!

The sun shone on Kelly & Rob

Kelly chose clouds of frothy gypsophila to add a vintage feel to her wedding to Rob last summer.  The couple were lucky to have a beautiful day and brought even more sunshine into their reception with touches of bright yellow in their flowers and decorations.  For more pictures of their wedding take a peek at http://www.helenjanefloristry.co.uk/gallery/featured-wedding.
