As a wedding florist in Dorset I love using Christmas Wedding flowers.
It’s always nice to create something a little different from Christmas wedding flowers every now and then. So I was pleased to be asked by Wool CE VA Primary School and Lady St Marys School, Wareham if I would be able to donate a Christmas creation. Instead of using typical Christmas wedding flowers I decided to go for traditional festive colours using Clove Carnations, Red Hypericum, Eucalyptus, and Leather leaf. For that extra festive touch I accessorised with a red star garland and some wooden decorations.
The flowers will be given away as part of the raffle prizes. So time to buy your tickets.
I am always happy to fulfil any specific floral requests (including Christmas Wedding flowers) and work throughout Dorset and the surrounding areas, please contact me with any requests.
An eye for detail can make all of the difference when it comes to delivery of wedding flowers. Not only do I take the utmost care when handling and shaping wedding flowers but also to the little details that make big impacts. I love to spend time developing the finishing touches such as stem cuts, precise wire binding and tidy ribboning with pearl pins.
When creating wedding flowers I like to focus my perfectionism to provide my clients with the best possible displays.
Recently I have further developed my designs for ‘floral wedding trees’, a gorgeous way of presenting room displays at weddings. The basic concept can be styled into the floral, colour and design concepts for almost any wedding and customised to a bride and groom’s requirements.
Floral trees are also a beautiful addition to any commercial and event floristry.
Keeping ahead of the crowd I love to experiment with wedding flowers. A recent concept and creation I have been working on is a wedding dress made entirely from flowers and I am very excited about the results.
I hope to keep working on the idea, developing not only the design of dress but the design of flowers used.
We are now in the season that sees many brides and grooms embrace the colours and textures of the time of year. Autumn wedding colours are beautiful, oranges and browns with wood and bark textures bring nature into the design of the big day and create a warming feel during the colder weather.
On her website Design Seeds Jessica posts wonderful colour pallets and even provides an easy-to-use tool for choosing seasonal colour schemes.
Using a huge variety of flowers and colour schemes I think they look particularly stunning and can really add an individual element to any wedding. Typically a wedding headdress is reserved for flower girls and young bridesmaids, taking inspiration from this and a fantasy styling I love to buck the tradition and design floral head dresses for adults.
I love to see a mix of traditional and modern styles incorporated into wedding floristry. Recently the traditional candle lantern has been making an appearance at more and more of the weddings that I create flowers for.
I took the concept of the traditional lantern and thought that I could ‘brighten it up’ (pun intended) with a colourful array of flowers. Again this method of room display is not restricted solely to weddings and looks beautifully at home at a range of different events.
“Helen did an absolute amazing job with my wedding flowers, I was very vague with my description of the flowers, all I asked for was cream roses for my bouquet and a smaller versions for my daughter,some purple flowers for the tables and something for the top table.
As I really wasn’t sure about flowers and our wedding was valentines weekend February 2013. Helen did an amazing job of arranging the flowers, I gave her the vases a few days before, Helen sorted out everything.
She took the flowers to the venue for me and they were there all sorted for when I walked down the isle, an amazing brilliant surprise and so stress free. All my guests commented on how beautiful the flowers where.
Helen is amazing and I totally recommend her
xx thank you so much Helen xxx”
“I was so happy with my wedding flowers, they perfectly complemented our lovely wedding, My bouquet was beautiful.
Thank You Helen xxx”
“I know nothing about flowers! Helen was brilliant – we discussed my rather vague
brief and she came up with some great ideas and certainly delivered on the day!
Professional and very helpful.
Thank you Helen.”
