dried flowers

Dried flowers and grasses make fantastic, long-lasting wedding flowers, for any season of the year. For me, it began many years ago with a Pampas Grass love affair, but it's grown into a bit of an obsession. Most of what I use is grown, dried and sourced in the UK (for some extra eco-friendly Brownie Points), and Europe is generally as far-afield as the remainder have travelled. I love the subtleties of textures that you have to play with in order to create interesting arrangements that don't photograph as beige blobs - it's not rocket science, but there is an art to it!

Whilst the majority of dried flower design centres around a neutral colour palette, I'm not adverse to getting some colour in the mix too - this could be warmer tones for Autumn, richer tones for Winter, pastel tones for Spring, or bright pops of colour of Summer! This can be achieved with dried flowers (I have a preference for ones that are naturally coloured, but dyed are also available); with fresh flowers (wildflowers in Summer, or stems of roses and orchids work particularly well in any season); and also with faux flowers (anything goes, but I have a personal preference for artificial blooms which are in season and in colours found in Nature!).

Below is a gallery of some of my bespoke dried flower creations - please do get in touch to discuss the possibilities!
