Bridal bouquets look beautiful when they have a natural, just picked from the garden quality about them. They are as fresh as your flowers could be and often wonderfully scented.
I will always remember the first time I saw my bridal bouquet. I hope your wedding flowers will be as special to you as mine were to me. I work as hard as I can to make sure it is the bouquet you have dreamed of, fresh, natural, scented and with that just picked from the garden feel. They will be full of flowers grown here in my Scottish garden. Whenever you see them growing in the future you will hopefully always be reminded of your wedding day.
Bridesmaids bouquets and Flower Girl Posies
Bridesmaids bouquets are full of beautiful seasonal flowers. These are slightly smaller than a bridal bouquet and will have a simpler mix of flowers, leaving a few special ones just for the bride. Flower girl posies are colourful, fresh, scented and small enough for small hands to hold them. I can also make very small toddler bouquets which they will find easier to carry.

Buttonholes are made from flowers and seedpods grown in the garden. I use the more robust flowers in the garden that have been tried and tested to make sure they will last well out of water for the day. They are wrapped in twine for a more rustic, natural look. I like to make them on the morning of the wedding so they are as fresh as can be but if you require them the day before they can be made and kept in a little water overnight to keep them fresh.
The grooms buttonhole can be made that little bit different to the rest of the bridal party for a special touch. This buttonhole had the addition of pink gypsophila and a nigella flower to tie in with the brides colour scheme.
Buttonholes made with blue cornflowers work really well and can stand out beautifully against the greens, blues and greys in a kilt.
These buttonholes were for a late summer wedding where the red berries just coming out in the garden add a different touch and worked well with the brides pink and red colour scheme.
Table centre pieces
Table centre pieces are an important part of a wedding as everyone spends a long time having their meal and enjoying the speeches. Jam jar posies make lovely decorations as they are low enough not to get in the way of anyone talking or seeing each other across the table. I can provide jars decorated and filled with beautiful homegrown flowers. Or sometimes a couple have some special vases of their own which I can fill with flowers. The photographs below show flowers for a wedding using a mixture of jars I provided wrapped in twine and the brides own collection of special vases.
I can provide ladies pinned or magnet corsages, which are similar to a mens buttonhole but with a few more flowers and if in bloom at the time a rose looks lovely. I can also make wrist corsages if you would prefer.
A delicate flower crown can look beautiful on a brides head for her special day. The flower crown in the picture on the bottom right lasted really well with a wedding location at the top of a local Scottish hill. It was windy and rainy at times during the service but my bride was still wearing her crown right through the dancing at night. Flower crowns are delicate and I only like to make them at the last minute on the day of a wedding so that they stand the best chance of looking beautiful all day. I can also make you a hair comb or individually wired hair flowers.

I can provide buckets of DIY flowers for you to arrange yourself if you, your family and friends would like to get creative for your wedding. I cut these the night before you collect them and condition them for you so they are all ready to be used. Some couples do all the flowers themselves and some like me to do the bridal party flowers and they arrange the table centres. I can be flexible with whatever flower requirements you may have.
Natural Petal Confetti is beautiful, romantic, biodegradable, eco friendly and fun to have at your wedding. I make my own mix of confetti using flowers I have grown, handpicked and naturally dried. It comes in one litre bags which is about 10+ handfuls and also in individual boxes with 1-2 handfuls, enough to throw over the bride and groom. You can use confetti to decorate the aisle, your tables or I can put it in baskets for your flower girls to hold.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at some of the wedding flowers I have grown and arranged. If you are interested in finding out more about the flowers I can grow for your wedding or event please just get in touch.
