This summer we’ve been lucky enough to work with gorgeous and varied weddings. A recent wedding trend we’ve seen has been for small and beautiful with sentimental touches, based very much around the unique style and expression of the brides. Perhaps due to the rise in thrifty fashion and rustic themes, learning how to “make and do” is making a comeback.
Here at Divine we love to create stylishly individual flowers for such weddings, to reflect the personality of our brides and include personal elements that the brides have collected themselves such as vintage china and linens and a vintage sixpence on a silk ribbon added to a bouquet!
We love discussing ideas and will tailor make a design brief for each bride. The flowers we use are really important as each variety can convey specific moods and their selection is key. The art of combining, colour, texture and the brides most loved flowers is what makes a bridal bouquet special.
If you would love to create your own wedding flowers, we will be running bridal flower workshops that will include how to style, buy and arrange flowers, so that your wedding can have your personal signature in every element.
Our workshops are always relaxed and fun with a glass of something sparkly to help you along! It’s an ideal evening to spend with your friends, mum, auntie or whoever you’d like to bring along.
The workshops will be broken down into…
How to create and style your table centres
Bouquet making for the bride and bridesmaids
Buttonholes for the men
Flower crowns and corsages for the bridal party
But we’re happy to include anything that you’re curious about, so you can learn how to create the flowers for you special day.
We will announce these workshop dates on our website with full details of price and what to expect.Workshops will be held at our shop in Teddington but if you would prefer to host in your own home, we can come to you for a minimum party of five and complimentary for the host!
So watch out for more info on this workshop and others on our workshops page, and call us on 0208 274 2458 if you’d like to know more.
With lots of love, from all of us here at Divine.
