The Downton Bouquet

Vintage theme is still an ongoing popular theme for weddings; which is now moving on to the 1910-1920’s era where vintage was all about the glamour, sparkles, femininity and exquisite details.

From a sparkling glamour era from my Gatsby inspired bouquet, here is a very chic, soft and graceful floral bouquet… The Downton Bouquet.

Inspired by the drama series itself, from the vintage theme from that era; i have created my own version of the Downton Bouquet with a variety of silk flowers with some foilage, brooches and pearls. An informal bouquet that look so chic and perfect for spring and summer weddings, finished off with satin ribbon and bow.

Another big trend for 2014 bouquets!

The Gatsby Bouquet

Making a new design isn’t easy even when you have done lots of research and planned out how to make it.
The Gatsby Bouquet has been a challenging bouquet to make, but overall when completed it look fabulous and hopefully the Gatsby himself would approve too.

The Gatsby Bouquet was inspired by the film itself where i loved all the Tiffany jewels, art deco and vintage inspiration and an on going theme for weddings too.
Here i have made a fully complete brooch bouquet, made with a variety of brooches with added pearls around; it is a must have bouquet for the bride that dares to be different! And even finished off with a monogram initial, which are new for this year and makes the bouquet more personal for the brides.

Mehndi Floral Jewellery

A big trend for mehndi’s is the floral jewellery such as earrings, gajras (bracelet), and hair chotlis.

I have been making a variety of mehndi floral jewellery made from fresh and silk flowers in bright and bold colours that gives the desi aura with the exotic and vibrant colours and flowers.

The designs are simple yet still stand out with the bright colours and hot pink is a very popular choice along with yellow and green. Majority of items are made with roses or chrysanthemums which are best option for mehndi’s.

The hot pink mehndi set has to be my favourite one, the roses, colours and design all work well together along with the vibrant rainbow gajras for family members.

The floral hair chotlis have been just as popular made in a variety of colours with the tips being finished off with roses; and for a more traditional look, below are a couple of photos of a floral hair chotli and gajra in silk red roses with gold and red beads in between.

Summer Florals

This summer I got to make a very bright and colourful fresh floral wedding order with my first fresh floral halos for bridesmaids!

The purples, pinks and ivory’s all work so well together with touches of greenery, makes the summer theme look natural, refreshing and beautiful.

The bridal cascade bouquet was mainly made with purple lisianthus, freesias, roses, ruscus and a touch of sparkle with the brooch and diamante trails. The bridesmaid bouquets were a mixture of roses, freesia’s and again a touch of sparkle too. The child bridesmaid halo were made with same flowers, so simple yet looks amazing! And not forgetting the grooms buttonhole with the ivory rose and purple lisianthus.

These colours work well together, looks great and still has my signature with the touches of sparkles!

For the love of Vintage!

This year I have totally loved making fresh vintage rose bouquets with bits of brooches, jewels, pearls and lace; it’s just so chic, classic and beautiful!

Below are some of my favourite ones, all made throughout various times of the year and still look amazing no matter what the British weather is like!

These fresh bouquets are made with avalanche roses, snowflake spray roses, African roses, freesias, calla lilies and all decorated with brooches, jewels, pearls, diamantes, and lace.

Beautiful bouquets that will never date in years to come!

A bit of Vintage and a bit of Desi….

I do love it when it others in the wedding industry get in touch with me to collaborate in a photo shoot; the bouquets for this photo shoot has the be the quickest fresh samples bouquets I have ever made within the busy summer wedding season.

As this shoot took place in the summer after I had my sample, I didn’t have the time to make new sample bouquets, only option was to make fresh bouquets; still gave me the chance to make new designs, and the embellishment on the bouquet handle is a definite trend for the following year.

The hot pink calla lily bouquet is a must have for those who love bright colours and have a Bollywood theme wedding too. Made with hot pink calla lilies, pink ethnic jewel and diamante detail; a bouquet that is so simple yet makes a statement.

The ivory vintage bouquet is very chic, I am just in love with these flowers and the handle too! Made with calla lilies, avalanche roses, snowflake roses and freesia, with small jewels, lace, and pearl detailed handle.

The purple, blue and ivory bouquet is great for a peacock theme wedding, as seen in previous post too, is a similar design yet still adds a touch of glam with the jewelled handle. Made with avalanche roses, snowflake roses, blue roses, freesias, lisianthus and small jewels on bouquet handle.

This concept and photo shoot was by Leena, who was also the make up artist, the amazing photography by Jensy B, other contributors have been listed below.

Below are the photos of bouquets that have been taken by me, and the photos from the shoot further down look amazing! The make-up, photography, layout, outfits, models and not forgetting the bouquets, looks fabulous and works well all together.

Vintage Rose Cascade Bouquet

This has to be the biggest, heaviest and toughest bouquet I have made to date!

I am so glad I could make this for my bride; I absolutely love these roses and colours and would make any vintage theme wedding look amazing. Making this bouquet was a challenge, took me a while to make too as it was my first time making a cascade bouquet without any foliage; yet it was worth it to see my bride happy with it. My photos do not do this bouquet any justice, it is definitely a bouquet that you would appreciate in front of you.

The vintage rose cascade was made with rosa grande roses, amnesia roses, safi roses, sweet avalanche roses, ivory avalanche roses, memory lane roses, lace, French millinery net, pearls and jewels… a very long list for a beautiful vintage cascade bouquet.

Even managed to make a bouquet for myself as I had a few spare roses left!
