Jades Flower Design

FLORAL arrangements in 2011 have been all about the vintage look, says Beverly Nichols of Jades Flower Design.

“Brides have asked for very muted colours, full flowers with very little foliage, tea cups, pearls and trailing crystals, with lots of lace. It’s a very soft look.”

Beverly, an expert in vintage-look flowers, predicts that the trend will continue well into 2012, with brides favouring hydrangeas, peonies, and other pretty varieties: “My favourite flower is astrantia –a tiny meadow flower that works well with the vintage look,” says Beverly.

“A particularly stunning wedding we did this year saw us placing cream coloured trees on the tables with lots of flowers in the branches. It was really different and looked absolutely beautiful.”

Talking about the coming season she added: “Amaryllis are very good for the autumn and winter. For this season it’s also nice to do a winter wonderland effect with candles, tealights, twigs, fairylights and silverwear. We sometimes also use tropicals.”

Flowers and more

As well as creating bouquets, corsages, table arrangements and more for weddings, Jades Flower Design has a host of other services to offer.

There is a vast range of vintage props to hire, from birdcages and stands to tea cups, teapots and silver candelabra.

There is also a range of more contemporary props such as 4ft tall silver vases and Perspex stands.

Jades is also now venturing into high end artificial flowers that look so real, people can’t believe they’re fake.

This is a way for brides to make a designer statement at a third of the price of fresh flowers.

There are currently six designs in the collection including white orchids.

For brides on a budget, choosing a fresh flower bouquet and artificial table decorations is the ideal compromise.

Another new facet to Jades is its floristry courses, which are also ideal for budgeting brides.

Charged on an hourly basis, the courses will teach brides, their mums or friends how to make the arrangements for their big day – from how to make buttonholes and hand tied bouquets to simple table decorations.

Jades Flower Designs

Beverly Nichols started her career over 20 years ago, freelancing in London for various big name florists before setting up Jades Flower Designs.

“My style is quite natural while also being big and showy. I like designs that create a ‘wow’ but we also work on smaller, more budget-concious weddings. Come and have a chat and see how we can help you,” she said.
