I had a lot of fun picking out all the flowers for the wedding. My bouquet and the bridemaids bouquet were the only ones we had made professionally. The rest of the flowers in the church and at the reception my mum made herself in a flower frenzy the night before the wedding. We probably did save money but I’m not sure my mum would agree the stress was worth it!

I would love to tell you all the flowers that were in my bouquet but to be honest I can’t remember! I asked for deep reds and dusky whites and wild flowers. I also gave the florist a strip of blue velvet fabric from my coat which she wrapped around the stems and pinned in place with pearl pins.

I asked for blue anemones for the bridesmaids bouquets. The florist was reluctant to use them as they tend to droop within a few hours of being out of water but I have to say these stayed beautiful for the whole day and looked amazing.

Any suggestions?
