Looking for bridal bouquet inspiration? You’ve found the right blog post!
I think the bouquets are perhaps the most important. Why? Because your bouquet will have a prime spot in all of your beautiful bridal portraits, and, most importantly, it's what you will carry down the aisle to meet your partner.
I’ve collected some of my favourite bridal bouquets I’ve made over the past couple of years as Fleurs&Ink Floristry.
I’m Abbey, the owner of Fleurs&Ink Floristry and I’m based in Lancashire. I create unique, elegant modern-boho flowers for weddings, events and gifts. I aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible by sourcing local and British flowers when possible. I also use reusable and recyclable methods and materials to reduce the impact of Fleurs&Ink on everyday flowers, gifts and weddings & events.
So let’s go, here’s the first bouquet:
Stunning Colour-Pop Spring Bridal Bouquet
One of my favourite smaller bridal bouquet that packs a punch with colourful spring blooms - coral ranunculus, a variety of double tulips, pink astilbe and scabiosa with pops of yellow from the craspedia. Don‘t be afraid of adding colour to your wedding! It can really add an elated feel to your day and if you love bright colours, then why not!
Elegant and Bountiful English Rose Bridal Bouquet
A large and beautiful collection of English Garden Roses, peonies, Queen Anne’s lace, malope, wax flower, gypsophila and a variety of eucalyptus. This bouquet had phenomenal fragrance from the peonies, roses and eucalyptus. The classic but unstructured style of the bouquet and the blooms chosen fitted perfectly with the style of the day, with the VW camper transport and the wedding breakfast and reception at AKS School Hall.
Sunflowers & Daisies Bridal Bouquet
A classic late-summer combination of glorious sunflowers, camomile, gypsophila and seeded eucalyptus. It’s such a happy bouquet with the brightness of yellow and orange. This bride also used blue silk ribbon as her something blue for her walk down the aisle.
Wild in White Bridal Bouquet
A collection of all my favourite blooms for this styled shoot bouquet At The Olde England Kiosk In Darwen. Dahlias, spray roses, malope, delphinium, scabiosa and mint to name a few. All arrange in an unstructured and unconventional shape, adding to the meadow-like beauty of this bridal bouquet. I finished it with white Silk ribbon and a pearl garland to compliment the bridal hair accessories.
Red Boho Bridal Bouquet
White, red and neutrals to create this beach complimenting bridal bouquet, using roses, anemones, astilbe, dahlias, silver grass and some deep red smoke bush foliage. This mix of flowers and foliage created the perfect cross over for all the frills dress and beach-y sand dunes at Lytham St Annes.
Peachy Pastel Bridal Bouquet
Created for Little White Books styled shoot at Eaves Hall, an alternative small bouquet of blue delphiniums, pale pink dahlias, peachy carnations and eucalyptus. Channeling into the theme of ‘Regency Romance’ to create a bouquet with colours brides do not usually go for with an unstructured appearance. This bridal bouquet really complimented this beautiful sheer sleeved dress from Amelia’s Bridal. Did you see the door arch I made for this shoot? You can see it on this sustainable flower blog post, here.
A touch of Bunny Tail Bridal Bouquet
A mix of roses, bishop dahlias, blue thistles and bunny tails to create this gorgeous mixed medium-sized bridal bouquet. This bride loves eucalyptus so I made sure there was plenty in there and it beautifully tied in with the eucalyptus garlands at the wedding reception.
Posy-Sized Bridal Bouquet & Pampas Fans!
Not all bridal bouquets need to be big round bouquets - you can opt for something smaller and/or different! Some brides feel overwhelmed by a large bridal bouquet and its perfectly fine if you would just like a small bouquet like this one in the image, which has a pop of bold colour and a touch of foliage and pampas to tie in with the style and theme chosen. Or, you could be bold and different with a pampas fan. This one is unstructured in shape for a natural style and definitely makes an impact!
Dried Flower Bridal Bouquet
The brief was dried pampas, eucalyptus and something blue. I loved the opportunity to create something different and using dried flowers. I selected a variety of fresh eucalyptus and thistle (the something blue) and dried it out in the studio to ensure the quality and variety of the stems. Paired with silk roses (something I do not usually use but the bride ensured me that the bouquets will be kept and displayed at home), palm spears and a dusty blue silk ribbon, for that extra touch of blue!
