Wedding Flowers Surrey
The Edge of the Florist floral art services for Weddings, celebrations, events or funerals are second to none. Beverly Vos learnt the art of floral design during her career in banqueting and hotel management.
Beverly and her team are on hand to help you choose your perfect wedding flowers. We will guide you through the practical matters – the formality of the event, the venue, the season and the expected weather, your gown and your budget – which will play a major roll in the choice of flower varieties, colours and quantities. As Beverly puts it: “Weddings are like a symphony – all parts need to be balanced and play in harmony to produce the most wonderful magical day which you will remember forever.”
At your consultation, we will suggest choices that will blend seamlessly with the style of your wedding. the level of formality of your wedding, whether white tie, on a beach or anything in between, should set the standard for the entire event, including your flowers. For example, if you are having a black tie affair in a ballroom, The Edge recommends considering classical flowers such as roses, lilies, orchids, amaryllis and traditional foliage, perhaps in a white/silver/green palette or one of ivory and pale gold tones. Semi formal and country or beach weddings have a freer, more casual feeling to them and the colour palette and form of flowers, from your bouquet through to dressing the Wedding Breakfast space, offers a wide variety of alternatives. Whatever your dream, we can create your reality.
Come and visit us at 3a Smithbrook Kilns, Cranleigh GU68JJ or get in contact via 01483 277177 or email email@example.com . We look forward to having a chat about what you have planned and together we will find you the right flowers, colours and scents that will help you create your perfect day.
The Bride is undeniably the star of any wedding, so her flowers are also the focus of much attention. The wedding dress is the key stylistic element so its design and colour will shape ideas for the bouquet. White and ivory tones are still classic choices for the bouquet, pastels such as blush pink, apricot and cream are romantic and strong colours such as sultry red, rich purple and blue can be dramatic and spectacular. The shape is important too, handtied bouquets are natural, stunning and perfect. The small posy bouquets are generally produced with small headed flowers such as lily of the valley, Stephanotis, Bouvardia. Teardrop bouquets are a more traditional styling, and bouquets of large flowers carried over the arm also have their place.
Bridemaids Bouquets & Flowers
The bridesmaids flowers should complement the bride’s but not outshine them. They should follow the same colour scheme and some variation can be incorporated. Adult bridesmaids can carry posies and younger girls smaller posies with streaming ribbons, small wicker flower baskets or pomander balls of flowers and ribbons and small wrist corsages.
The groom and his supporters would usually wear a buttonhole which compliments the colour scheme of the bride, her bridesmaids and the floral bouquets. Additional colours in the form of thistles, herbs and leaves can be added to the buttonhole flower to reflect the colour of the grooms outfit.
If the wedding is to be held in a church then a floral garland or archway arrangements can be fixed over the entrance gate, door or porchway of the church. Individual hanging arrangements on gateposts, lampposts or either side of the entrance can be used.
It is traditional to have floral arrangements inside the church or ceremony room, either on pedestals, the altar or ceremony table, hanging on pew ends or on the back of the bride and groom chairs.
Reception & Event Floral Arrangements
Wedding reception are entirely a matter of choice and budget. There are many styles to choose from and a few options are shown here:
Ivy archways covered in fragrant flowers – these archways link the reception room to wedding breakfast room/marquee/orangery etc.. There can be just one or multiple archways.
Large trees in pots lining the walkway to the reception room – the trees can be festooned with lights, flowers, lanterns…
Table centre arrangements can be tall and dramatically rise above the heads of the guests at the tables. Low table centre arrangements can fill the centre of each table perhaps with candles intertwined with ivy, trailing flowers and foliage. A combination of tall and low arrangements can be used on each table.
