Q: What flowers should we choose for a summery, boho wedding?
Bohemian weddings are relaxed and ethereal – let your imagination run wild! I take a natural and sustainable approach to floristry, by avoiding floral foam, growing my own flowers and opting for seasonal varieties wherever possible. Bohemian-style flowers are textured, unstructured and full of blooms and foliage. They have a romantic, dreamy feel, which is inspired by nature.
British flowers, herbs and greenery are in their prime during the summer months. They not only look glorious, but the scent is incredible too. I will be cutting sweet peas, geranium leaves and herbs for their fragrance. Cosmos seem to dance in a bouquet and give it movement, while nigella, cornflowers, celosias, poppies, lupins and geums give a fantastic pop of colour. Roses and peonies provide a whimsical feel, while foxgloves, delphiniums, dahlias and amaranthus add height.
Imagine the most abundant and incredible cottage garden has erupted from the ground and entwined its effortless beauty and wildness into floral arches, meadow shapes and hanging installations. Grab your flower crown and be inspired by the beauty of nature.
