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.

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.

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.

A Taste of the Exotic…

To take away our mind off the typical cold British winter, I think its time to brighten up our day with some bright and colourful blooms. The exotic flowers are a great trend for Summer weddings that give the instant ‘wow’ factor with the bright and bold colours.

Mixing things up are a great way of being different, creating focal points with the variety of flowers and colours, and to create a great stylish and modern impact finish off with mirrored vases or plates.

The exotic are a must for those who loves to have a bold and colourful statement, it will always look contemporary and stylish, whichever exotic flowers you choose, but do choose these flowers when they are in season, but do be cautious not to go over the top or clash with your dress, as tropical bouquet next to a detailed or colourful dress will look too overpowering.

Here are some great bold and colourful ideas for that Summer wedding!
