Flowers are such an integral part of any wedding day, they can lift a wedding table from a dinner with friends to a romantic, memory full table filled with your favourite people and things, a shift that creates images in your head to last a lifetime. No matter how well you have planned all the details, adding flowers will lift the colours and bring it all together to create a complete design. So with that kind of importance, it’s no wonder flower design follows fashion and trends that are visible and defined across the years. So what are the trends coming up for 2017………………

Greenery and garlands

We’re not sure if it’s because people are more budget conscious (although this would be a deception of sorts as this option can be more pricey) or if they’re just opting to go more green and be more environmentally aware, but there has been a huge increase in greenery being used in weddings. It follows the ‘outside in’ trend that creates the lush textures of the secret garden with relaxed florals and deconstructed piles of foliage but on the inside. It often comes in the form of long table swags to decorate the trestle table trend or large structures of layered textured greens. The miminalist look can still be catered for with simple specimen vases with sculptural ferns and delicate trailing vines and the houseplant trend of kokedama’s provide the hanging element. This trend can take a lot of work and technical understanding, much more so than the simpler, flower-abundant creations hence the sometimes more costly than expected price tag, but they create full, luxurious, beautiful and unique understated focal points to your wedding.

Hanging florals and chandeliers

These usually large structures command pride of place in an industrial space, tipi or marquee and again bring the ‘outside in’. These can be large floral pieces or follow the full greenery trend, but both work by drawing the eye upwards creating a 3-D space rather than just eye level decorations on the tables. Wonderful at adding height, they can also relieve the tables of the floral arrangements, creating space there and using the often, oversized space above giving intimacy to the setting.

Bigger bouquets

Bridal bouquets of loose, organic wider shapes are officially the new must have! This year’s brides are asking for bouquets with bulk, but not massive balls of tightly tied flowers, they want lush full bouquets with foliage and texture, loosely tied with trails and interesting focal points. These can be wild and woodland inspired full of ferns and greenery or full of old style flowers, creating visually interesting lines with arching branches, or foliage that cascades. They often come in asymmetrical shapes, impossible to recreate exactly so each one is bespoke and personal to that bride. For added softness, long trailing ribbons add interest to the stems.

There are more trends that are coming to the forefront of flower design for 2017, so see our floral trends part 2 for more 2017 ideas ……

We have just had a lovely wedding card from our bride Catherine who got married at Linthwaite House in the spring along with some photos (our favourite thing to see!)  Catherine had this to say …

‘This is just a quick thank you for the wonderful job you did with the flowers for our wedding.  They were absolutely perfect! My mum said they were the nicest bouquets she had ever seen (which is quite something because she was quite sceptical). Thank you again for understanding our vision better than we did!’

Catherine had wanted her flowers to be ‘nothing weddingy’ and a mix of wild flowers in whites, greens, yellows, the odd pink and some deeper blue/purples.  They both liked the small headed flowers, which would give a not too formal look.  We used a mix of Ranunculus, Anemone, Craspedia, Freesia, Limonium and Grape Hyacinth amongst others to create that just picked look.

The bride and groom had saved lots of wine and beer bottles which we filled with flowers for the tables and to be scattered around the hotel.  Here is our favourite photo of Catherine coming down the aisle, she looks absolutely gorgeous and so happy!  We wish you both all the best for your future as husband and wife.

The Floristry by Kerry - 11M ago

Thank you to Steve from Derwent Photography for these fantastic photos of our bride and groom at New House Farm.

new house farm wedding, the lake district

Our couple wanted their flowers to have a vintage country garden look using roses, lisianthus, gyp, chamelaucium etc.  We created a mix of large and small headed flowers, so that it was more styled than the hedgerow look, but they didn’t want anything too ‘weddingy’.  These soft vintage colours created some beautiful pastel shades which matched the bridesmaids dresses perfectly.

As always Steve’s photographs really capture the mood and feelings of the day and we love the way he photographs  our flowers.  Thanks Steve, hope to see you again soon!

This was our first wedding at The Plough at Lupton, what a fantastic place to get married!!! We so enjoyed working there, and the staff were incredible! Helpful, couldn’t be nicer and looked after us perfectly, allowing us to set up super early so we could be guests at the wedding too.

The bride and groom had asked for their long banqueting tables, which enabled us to create long foliage table runners in 3 types of Eucalyptus, Ruscus, Pistache, Lambs Ear, Senecio and Leucadendron with a small amount of white flower in.

Relaxed, rustic and full of foliage in soft muted greys and greens was the style the bride and groom wanted and it suited the beautiful dining room at The Plough really well.  They have a great set up there and the design and colours with the copper hanging lights, big wooden tables, beams and eclectic chair coverings all creates a fantastic stylish, comfortable feeling that oozes charm.

Well done The Plough for creating a perfect atmosphere for a relaxed wedding … oh yes and the food was fantastic!!  Can’t wait to do more weddings there!

White wedding flowers are still the classic choice no matter what style or time of the year you are getting married, so here are a few of our favourites.

This monochrome bouquet is a perfect choice for a stylish city wedding, a simple yet elegant white bouquet with pops of blue/black from gorgeous anemones, texture from garden and spray roses, and pretty silver hues from silver brunia berries and velvety sift dusty milller leaves.

We love this soft textured bouquet, perfect for a spin or summer wedding, in an informal setting. It’s romantic feel works beautifully with soft flowing dresses.  The lovely Scabious adds a delicate feel mixed with the Roses, Lisanthus and Ferns.

This full, Rose and Ranunculus bouquet is perfect for a sophisticated garden wedding and suits the structured off the shoulder dress beautifully.  Soft silver tones with the Lambs Ears and varieties of Eucalyptus work to create tones of silver around the white old english Roses.

We still love this simple yet very elegant Narcissi bouquet,that we created a few years ago The hint of glam is perfect for a Gastby-esque wedding, or without would make a lovely contemporary bouquet for a simple informal wedding.

We love white flowers, they can create a vast array of styles and suit many dresses and styles of wedding.  Simple, elegant, classic, with clean crisp lines or romantic, full and luxurious, whatever your style white flowers can create the perfect look for you.

It’s always great seeing the delight on your brides face when you deliver her flowers and that moment that you know what you have created is exactly what the couple wanted is priceless.  We never get to see the whole event, so it’s fantastic to see your work and a very happy bride featured in one of the top wedding blogs Rock My Wedding and to see how the flowers have played a big part of the day.

Rock My Wedding featured one of our favourite venues Gossel Ridding a fabulous country house in the lake district and a wedding we worked on in the summer.

Gossel Ridding

The feature shows the lovely couple Chloe and Micheal in their real weddings section and is full of wonderful photos from the very talented Melissa Beattie.

Chloe and Micheal wanted their flowers to match the pale blue bridesmaids dresses and to give a soft vintage pastel feel.  We used Old English Roses, hydrangea, lisianthus, spray roses and phlox to create  small headed textured look.

Bride and bridesmaids bouquets

Chloe wanted her bouquet to be asymmetrical with soft trails of ribbon from the stems and used a small amount of eucalyptus to follow the vintage theme through.

Bride bouquet in soft pastels

Absolutely delighted that they had what looks like such a fantastic day and we wish them loads of brilliant things for the future.

Thank you Rock My Wedding for featuring our work.
