When you picture your wedding flowers, what do you see? A modest bouquet and some buttonholes? A handful of vases filled with pretty blooms? Or maybe your imagination runs wild and you dream of filling your wedding with as many blooms as possible?
Both options can look equally stunning, but if you really love flowers, why not let them play a starring role in your wedding décor?
Here are four show-stopping ideas for your wedding flowers that will transform your venue and wow your guests…
If your wedding venue has high ceilings, hanging flower balls are an ideal way to add colour, texture and drama to the space. This look works particularly well in a rustic setting such as a barn, tipi or yurt.
Whether freestanding or fixed to an existing structure such as a porch or pergola, a floral arch serves as an incredible backdrop. Use as a focal point for the wedding ceremony itself or to add visual interest to your formal photographs.
Just imagine the glamorous selfies your guests will take if you install one of these at your evening do!
Packed full of beautiful blooms, a sumptuous flower wall looks incredibly luxurious. Soft, blousy flowers are a must, so think roses, peonies and hydrangeas.
Sweeping staircases are made for dramatic floral garlands, especially if you’re planning a grand entrance as husband and wife.
Continue the cascade of flowers on to the floor at the foot of the stairs and add candles in lanterns or hurricane vases to create even more magic and romance. Until next time,

Life happens, and even the most organised couples sometimes encounter bumps in the road.

I’m writing this post in the midst of the UK’s second lockdown. COVID-19 has certainly kept us on our toes this year. As I type, wedding and civil partnership receptions and celebrations are not permitted to take place in the UK. Once lockdown is lifted and weddings can go ahead, the restrictions on numbers will remain in place. Whatever happens in the next few weeks and months, it seems small, intimate weddings will be the norm for the foreseeable future.

Now, more than ever before, couples have a very good reason to make their marriage official before holding a big celebration at a later date. The coronavirus pandemic has forced many to postpone their weddings until later this year or next. I’ve seen the heartache this has caused first-hand, and I know the situation is far from ideal. Now lockdown restrictions are being eased, couples at least have the option to hold a small civil ceremony, perhaps followed by a small reception. It might seem like a compromise, but it doesn’t have to be.
