Caroline Sayer of La Belle Flowers in Norfolk created this pretty flower crown, featuring pops of pink and purple.

5. All in the detail
For an intricate design which offers a blend of delicate flowers, this crown created by London-based florist, One Flew Over, is undeniably romantic. Charlie Gozem of One Flew Over says: "We created a flower crown of lisianthus, hydrangea, mimosa, wax flower, freesia, rose buds, hebe and ivy berries for Sarah. Keeping the florals mixed and smaller, we were able to create a full crown with a light and whimsical feel. All the flowers featured elsewhere in her bridal flowers, to keep a coherent theme throughout, with the mixed textures and the palette of purples, greys, creams and greens."
