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!

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.

Summer Pink Hotness

This summer a lovely bride got in touch with me to make her bridal order in my favourite colour… Hot pink! Once she told what she wanted, I could not wait to make her bright bridal order which is just perfect for a summer wedding.

The order consisted of the Regal Rose Bridal Bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, silk foam rose garlands, and small rose brooches.
Made with silk foam roses, brooches, jewels, crystals, diamond gems and feathers; a collection that will be a classic every summer!

It is a pleasure to make and custom design items for all my brides, and even make new items like the silk rose garlands, which is the first time I have made these and have been a big hit for those that are getting married abroad.

Peacock Theme Bouquets and Buttonholes

This summer I got to do a theme which has also been on my list, a peacock theme. Many will say peacock feathers are bad luck for weddings, however the peacock colours are just beautiful, bold and vibrant.

I have taken the peacock theme to a new contemporary format, whereas in the past, the feathers were added in between the flowers which doesn’t really give a good finishing for the bouquets. Adding the feathers on top of the bouquets and on the handle, make it look more modern and contemporary, shows the theme off and the dashes of jewels and the brooch add that extra sparkle to the theme.

The collection consists of bridal bouquet, bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres, buttonholes and decorated floral candelabras. Made with ivory avalanches and aspen roses, blue dyed roses, lisianthus, freesias, brooches, jewels, peacock feathers and foliage.

2012- A Blooming Great Year It Has Been!

What a year 2012 has been!

This was the year of introducing crystal and brooch bouquets which has been and still is a very popular choice for alternative bridal bouquets. Also brought in new ideas all time yet still do not have time to make more samples as the orders just keeping coming in which is great!

I managed to organise my own photo shoot for the Diamond Jubilee, with a little help from contributors, and using patriarchal colours of red, white and blue, I created unique and contemporary bouquets to suit the occasion. Took part in a wedding fair in Manchester at The Midland’s Hotel, hopefully will take part in many more wedding fairs in the near future. The biggest change was giving the brand a whole new make over with the new website, logo, packaging, business cards and postcards.

I have met many brides this year, I am glad that I have met them and have provided them beautiful custom-made bridal bouquets and accessories, I would like to thank them for their compliments also recommending me to others.

I would also like to thank to those that have also supported and recommended me to others, their clients as well as those that have helped me to rebrand myself with the new makeover, which I love!

With a succesful year in 2012, I do hope that 2013 will be an even bigger and better year!

Below are some of the highlights of 2012 and please do check out my Facebook page, Floral Creations by Reena, where there are lots more photos from this year.

Royal Bridal Tea Party

As it is the year to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and every one is going jubilee crazy with all the flags, bunting, parties, cakes and all things British; I had to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee by creating a unique Jubilee bridal bouquet.

As us British love the Royal Family and a great party, I put together a photo shoot for this special occasion. The Jubilee bouquet was made with a silver diamond brooch, crystals, beads, pearls and Swarovski. Also made a fresh floral bouquet with roses, tulips, freesias and touches of blue pearls.

I hope you like my very own version of a royal bridal tea party and gives you inspiration for your own party and wedding ideas.
