Miranda & Bennet

Saturday, November 4, 2023

Some absolutely gorgeous flowers were used for Miranda & Bennet’s wedding flowers.

They DIY’ed their bud vases and then I made the bouquets, body flowers, ceremony arrangements. They picked up their DIY flowers and their wedding order to save on delivery costs. If you have a big enough vehicle and a small enough of wedding, I am happy to provide pick-up service.

We accented with some pricey feature florals like burgundy scabiosa and burgundy/plum ranunculus.

We also used:

  • Hearts Roses
  • Pink Floyd Roses
  • Purple Jewel Spray Roses
  • That’s Red Jewel Spray Rose – they were a bit squished upon arrival and needed every bloom blown open
  • Hot Pink Majolica Spray Roses were unavailable I was was subbed with a tiny headed local spray rose. They weren’t what I wanted, but they were a nice pop of even brighter pink
  • Lisianthus in a dark purple colour. I only ended up using these in the big arrangements opposed to the bouquets. They weren’t working.
  • Magenta or Fuschia stock (matthiola) were used in all the bouquets and large arrangements
  • I ordered Minerva Carnations but received Purple Pixel – they still worked well
  • Lots of blue Eryngium (thistle)
  • Bright purple Statice
  • Waxflower in purple which I only ended up using in the body flowers since they looked too rustic with the bouquets
  • Added burgundy hypericum
  • Added purple mini carnations

Greens I used were:

  • Asparagus Plumosa
  • Israeli Ruscus
  • Italian Ruscus
  • Leather
  • Nagi
  • Parvifolgia
  • Salal
  • Seeded Eucalyptus
