Twig & Twine’s Danielle Roberts shares what went in to every little bit of this dreamy bouquet.
1. Peonies: We have some clients who plan their entire weddings around peony season. Can you blame them? In this bouquet we used a really vibrant variety called Coral Charm and a softer blush pink (which has the most incredible scent). Not only do these stunning blooms make for a gorgeous focal point in a bouquet, they also provide a sense of nostalgia for many.
2. Ranunculus: Ranunculus are always a favourite of mine to use in wedding work. They have delicate paper-like petals made up of an abundance of layers. They look beautiful nestled amongst a cluster of flowers in a bouquet and are also fun to use in larger airy ceremony pieces for movement.
Not to mention they come in almost any colour from pastel pinks, lemony yellows and even moodier plum shades.
3. Anemones: Anemones have been another favoured wedding choice in the past few seasons. Their signature airy petals are as thin as tissue and their jet black centres command a presence even amongst the boldest colour palette.
4. Parrot Tulips: These are a premium version of your standard tulip and they are available in the widest range of vibrant and variegated colours. These two-toned beauties often have a ruffled textured edge to their petals.
5. Craspedia: Also commonly known as billy buttons, these are almost as fun to look at as they are to say. Craspedia brings the perfect amount of sunshine to any bouquet. They also keep their colour near perfectly if you’d like to dry them afterwards.
6 Salal: Otherwise known as lemon leaf, this is a nice hardy foliage. This greenery will last really well even out of water, making it a nice base for your bouquets. It’s also a great choice for things like ceremony arches or table garlands.
7. Italian Ruscus: I like to suggest a mix of foliage in our wedding flowers, sometimes including five or more varieties. Italian ruscus comes in a hunter green colour and has really nice draping quality. Perfect for the overflowing, naturally styled look, which continues to be a popular choice.
