Bridal inspiration: Say it with flowers

30 Jul 2014

People have been saying “I love you” with flowers for centuries. So if you are looking for a wedding theme, then why not be inspired by the language of flowers?

A top team of suppliers created four different floral themes for a spring wedding. The styled photo shoot took place at the beautiful surroundings of Trafford Hall, an ethical weddings and events venue.

The Graceful Tulip Photo Shoot

For May we have featured a floral headband and bouquet made up of soft pink tulips, which were very popular during the Georgian period in Europe. Hair and make-up by The Art of Make-up and Kreative Hair has complemented the beautiful floral designs by Emma Fawcett-Eustace Flowers.

The Charming Ranunculus Photo Shoot

In the language of Flowers, a bouquet of Ranunculus says "I am dazzled by your charms". Our bride, Sophie wears a stunning floral headband which is charming and perfect for a modern day wedding

But no bride is complete without her groom. Enter John, her charming groom for the day, wearing a tweed jacket with touches of tangerine from Groom Hire.


Here they are again featured in the fabulous Rolls Royce 20HP Tourer from Chester Wedding Cars.


The Romantic pink O'Hara Rose Photo Shoot

Trafford Hall was built in 1756, a time of opulence and romance, so it was fitting to use the pink O'Hara Rose against the delicate gypsophila. Model Maisie is shown on a beautiful swing from The Vintage Swing Company wearing a wedding dress with woodland details from Bridal Haven, Tarporley.

Our bridesmaids are pictured on the vintage swing which has been beautifully dressed by Emma and her team. The pretty dresses with lace detailing are also from Bridal Haven, Tarporley.

Uberfly Wedding Stationery features a cameo brooch, inspired by model Maisie's hairstyle.


Inspired by The O'Hara Rose, this gorgeous and intricate wedding cake was created by "Time for Sweetpea" The detail is outstanding with butterflies and bubble bees. It tastes as good as it looks!

Our modern day version of Mr Darcy is Joe who complements our bride Maisie perfectly in his suit provided by Groom Hire and buttonhole designed by Emma Fawcett-Eustace Flowers.


And Now for Something Completely Different Photo-Shoot

For the bride who loves all things that sparkle and looking for something different and more in keeping with the 1920's/1930's era. We did a collection of images with a jewelled bouquet, headband and wedding dress from Bridal Haven, This complemented the 1934 Rolls-Royce 20/25 Limousine from Chester Wedding Cars which looked stunning.


Sophie is shown wearing a stunning wedding dress from Bridal Haven, Tarporley and is holding a fabulous giant balloons from Bubblegum.
