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!

2013!… A Sparkling Year It Has Been!

WOW! It’s been a very exciting year with wedding orders coming from all over the UK and International too!

The alternative bouquet has been so popular this year! The silk and crystal and brooch bouquets have been travelling everywhere from Manchester to London, to America and Africa; great for keepsakes and for those who are getting married abroad.

This year I made my first Crystal Heart bouquet for Valentine’s, one the hardest bouquets I have made to date and the red bouquets just keep on getting popular and look great in many of the designs I have made this year. I have made such a variety of bouquets that I have loved making this year, the Enchanted Bouquet and pearl cascade bouquet have been the biggest trend for this year, even got to make bridal orders for a black and ivory theme and a peacock theme which have been ticked off my wish list; fresh bouquets have been just as popular and cascade bouquets have a made a come back where I have given it a modern look an favourite has to be the one I have made with beautiful fresh vintage roses; adding in touches of lace, brooches and jewels to finish off the fresh bouquets also mehndi floral jewellery has been a big hit too!

I have met so many brides and wedding suppliers this year and got to work with some too; my favourite photo shoot from this year has to be the Mughal inspired shoot with Bhavna, absolutely loved the concept and photos and made the Regal Rose Bouquet popular choice for 2013 brides. I also got to work with Leena and Jensy B, loved the concept and photos too and the bouquets have got to be the quickest bouquets I have made for a photo shoot and to be featured in the Asiana Magazine in various pages, that made my summer; also I cannot forget meeting wedding suppliers at Thornton Manor hosted by Rabbia from Asian Wedding Ideas, would love to meet everyone again!

And not forgetting I held my first bouquet sample sale that attracted many last minutes brides and grabbed sample bouquets at amazing prices, be sure to keep a look out for more sample sales in the future.

From little sparkles on bouquets to full on sparkles; it has definitely been a very Sparkling year!
I could actually go on for ages about this year but I do not think everyone would like to read an essay but I cannot be more than happy for everyone that have come to me for their wedding orders, supported me and have recommended me to others.

I do hope next year has lots more installed for me…Bring on 2014!

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!

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.
