What is this new loose, wild bouquet style? everything old is new again with weddings and flowers -Part 2 wedding questions

 

Ahhh, we love this question because it is the how and why do this wedding thing we love so much. While growing up in small Alabama town,  I always  loved to gather flowers  into loose and natural arrangements and this translated into my wedding designs. Here I am with one of my foraged wild arbors waiting on a rose...um about 20 years ago.

 

 

 

When  I began my wedding floral planning business in 2010, I searched for florists who had a  similar  style so I could learn and improve . I discovered the look I love in the classic British "garden style "flower designer Constance Spry .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and then located an amazing floral designer named Holly Chapple

 of  Virginia. Holly's "gathered and styled" "flowers instantly became  my inspiration and goal for my business. In 2014 I learned she mentored a group of flower lovers  called the Chapel Designers and joined. I am so thankful for this woman and her group  and her dedication to the floral  industry .

 

 

 

 

So this flower style is traditional and timeless , gathered and styled, English garden flowers !

And I have do know that this style I love so much is not a trend but is a classic  style and that goes in and out of popularity. Here it is in the 1600's as a painting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This style is trending as  large wedding bouquets now but that isn't new either. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the movement and natural feeling of this look and feel it conveys an organic and relaxed feeling at a wedding...even a formal wedding- here is proof..
