Lately I've been thinking about where I draw inspiration from when designing wedding bouquets and other botanical installations.
Apart from the seasons which influence as well as inspire, I've been thinking about unexpected materials, landscapes and environments. A view of twisted, high reaching branches or a bundle of bleached twigs. Collections of plants growing alongside each other in botanic gardens. Bulbs and perennials mass planted in heritage gardens.
Maybe a bit of a stretch to your average wedding bouquet...but I try to avoid average! Here's an example -
twigs and branches
Obviously there are all the other factors involved in designing wedding flowers...not least of all the bride's tastes, colour scheme, budget....but it's nice to dream!
It's always a treat to get a client who has some definite ideas to work with, but then is willing to add to and build upon them, incorporating unexpected plant materials, new groupings or a fresh take on the style.
Thanks for looking again. XNP
