TRENDY BOUQUET

These ultra trendy, structured monochromatic bouquets are filled with textures and layers, usually with reflexed roses, where the petals are peeled back. Here we have chosen dahlias to be the focal point. All the ingredients are placed at different heights within the design, giving depth and a modern, luxe vibe.

NOSTALGIC  BOUQUET

The 80's and 90's are back in fashion. This sees the return of the waterfall bouquet, with flowers that had gone out of favour also making a comeback, including carnations, baby's breath and tea roses. 

 

Dried flowers saw a resurgence in 2020. These everlasting beauties were found in homes during the 70's, 80's and 90's and are here to stay for a little longer.

 

Paris' bouquet, seen here, has dried seed heads and hand-dipped pink bunny tail grasses. Often mixed with fresh-cut flowers. The dried trend has something for everyone.

And if you really want a 90's-style wedding then go for fluorescent pastel for a fun and vibrant look.

The popular TV drama Bridgerton returns for a second season and with it, couples are still requesting petite, graceful bouquets with a touch of regal Prussian blue, filled with romantic, delicate details.

CEREMONY ARTISTRY

Wedding couples are asking their floral designer to get creative and more experimental as the floristry industry is being recognised for the artistry it can bring to the guests’experience: from floral sculptural arrangements and, dramatic ceremony backdrops to floral installations that give you a tactile experience whilst you say 'I do' in style.

ENCHANTING ARCHES

Wedding arches have remained a firm favourite with our clients and will continue in 2022, with more couples looking to have their ceremony in outdoor spaces due to the changes in law for outdoor ceremonies. And of course, they can transform indoor event spaces too. Filled with scrumptious florals, they create a real wow factor, each unique and custom- designed to the client’s style.

 

If your designer is able to relocate the designs to your reception, it allows your guests to enjoy the florals a little longer after the ceremony, further adding to their sense of appreciation.

 

We have moved arches behind the top table, framing the newly weds, and the arch has also become a photobooth for evening guests to enjoy. We have even had a harpist play under one during the reception. You could also use it as part of the cake cutting ceremony.

 UNFORGETTABLE INSTALLATION

 Every wedding journey starts with an event space that needs personalising to make it uniquely yours for the day. If you are looking to go all out with a visual impact beautifully embellished to suit your style, consider those unique spaces in your venue such as beams, alcoves or stairs for that truly unique look; something your guests will talk about for years to come. 

 

'Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making Annabelle’s dreams come true. The flowers, the way you’d set everything out, and the bouquets had love and care running through every piece, and every person entering the ceremony room, and the peel suite were speechless.

A truly phenomenal display, thank you.'

 

Annabelle and Lee's style had a relaxed boho ambience, rich with texture and depth. The floral palette included pampas grass, we added fresh toffee roses, bleached preserved Ruscus and fan palms to complement the ceremony room using earthy neutrals which are still on-trend.

'I can’t explain the feeling I had when I walked into the ceremony room for the first time, about to marry my beautiful husband, surrounded by such beautiful arrangements. You made an empty room feel so warm and cosy, and in a strange way, it made me feel “safe”, in an otherwise daunting situation! The first sight of the beautiful beams reduced me to tears.' 

MEMORABLE GUEST EXPERIENCES

MINIMALIST LAYERS

Sensuous, sophisticated tablescapes are the focus at receptions in 2022. They tell the story of your day, after all, it's where your guests spend the majority of their day.

 

It's all about delicate details for our clients as they want everyone to engage, laugh and share with each other across the table. They are choosing cluster wedding centrepieces for their guests' tables, including mini bud vase arrangements coming together to make one beautiful display in the centre of the guests’ tables and layered with dinner candles and votives for an opulent touch.

 

Or, as we have done here, creating a floral, minimalistic, retro and moody vibe, with a rust wedding compote full of earthy colours of  ‘quicksand’ roses and dried seed heads dotted the length of the banquet table, giving guests space. Perfect for more intimate weddings, as couples are scaling up designs and scaling back guest lists.

SHOW STOPPING

Nature is a precious treasure and our well-being depends on our green world. So there's no surprise that greenery in wedding decorations remains as popular as ever, be it indoors or out. It's timeless and full of character.

 

Here we have paired floral compotes filled with stunning roses and ruffled ranunculus nestled in eucalyptus. These beautiful bowls are teamed with an ethereal ceiling installation of a lush, soft ruscus and scented eucalyptus foliage garland, complete with trendy lighting.   Whether you’re aiming for a dramatic effect or simple decor, foliage ceiling installation is a trend that's growing in momentum in Cheshire and Merseyside. For couples wanting to splurge on decor, place it above the bar or above every table and you can always add fresh flowers or rental silks in your colour scheme. 

 

There has been an explosion of house plants being added to our homes and they have been scientifically proven to boost your mood. Plants have the power to instantly change a blank space into a modern lush oasis, from back-drops to tablescapes. A mixture of abundant foliage combined with plants that can be given to guests as a memento of the day is something to watch out for.
