5 Ways to Create Statement Florals on Your Wedding Day
While we'll always be big fans of simple, small bouquets, and minimal table displays, we've noticed that more and more brides are opting for larger-scale arrangements. This is particularly true for brides affected by the coronavirus pandemic, who have had to hold their wedding plans for a later date and new budget thanks to saving for that little bit longer.
Need proof? Take a look at the following arrangements photographed by Fine Art Curation member and photographer Lucy Davenport who delves into how to create some wow factor using florals on your wedding day. Whether you're going for a modern and maximalist feel or a classic and luxury look, you're bound to find an option that suits you and your big day...
"Your venue will be the backdrop for your wedding day, but the florals will personalise it and set the tone. Statement or understated, muted or vibrant. It is imperative to secure a florist who's style you are drawn to. The florals are such an inspiring element of the wedding day as a photographer so I have outlined some of my favourites here..."
A complement to your wedding day look, your bouquet will appear in so many of your wedding photographs. Using luxurious silks will add to the effortless chic look of an oversized bouquet. Want something more of a statement? I adore this floral boa I photographed.
One of my favourite ceremony settings was a marquee set within a wild flower meadow, a great example of using the setting that you’re within to your advantage.
A floral arch is or statement urns create a beautiful frame to ceremony photographs as well as a focal point for your guests. Remember your photographer will be photographing both perspectives of the aisle so any florals at the back of your ceremony will also be in shot.
Suspended florals are a firm favourite of mine! They create real wow factor and are visible to all guests.
Statement centre pieces can also bring vibrancy, just remember to consider how high they are, you want your guests to be able to speak across the table without obstruction.
Adding florals to your tiers or a floral backdrop will bring focus. Consider the placement of the cake in the room if you want it to be a feature. I couldn’t resist sharing this hand painted floral cake with you too!
