Discover beautiful blooms and top trends this year

For me, spring is all about a mass of pastel flowers mixed with gorgeous
flowing greenery to give that wild and natural look. It’s a time to show off the florals that are coming into season, which usually have a lovely sweet scent – perfect for a bride to carry!

Discover beautiful blooms and top trends this year: Image 1 It's a great idea to use delicate ones which can be used as a wand for the flowergirl or buttonhole for the groom. The handle of the bouquet is starting to be decorated with trailing ribbon in a complementing colour to the flowers. If you want to be daring, you could go for multiple colours which looks very effective.

For centrepieces, a cluster of bottles with several stems in each gives a simple yet abundant look when they vary in height. To make it more romantic you could add candles or sweet little tea lights. Alternatively you could try a garland of mixed greenery to run along with your table while incorporating spring flowers weaving through it.

Another new trend is a lot more blooms are being entwined in a huge hanging macrome. It's made from cords such as cotton twine, jute or hemp and hung up either on the wall or on an arch and used as a photo backdrop. I would then add flowers in by weaving the stems through but still making sure they have a water source. This would be a great statement piece to have at your wedding which you can enjoy at home afterwards.
