Bridal Flowers

I love the look and feel of vintage wedding flowers.....the simple design that implies that flowers have just been picked from the garden.
I have been finding it difficult to try and focus on what I would like for our wedding.  The trouble is that I like just about everything.  When I read that a local florist was holding a flower school on creating a bridal posy and buttonholes, I just had to try.

The flower school was taken by Love Lily of Abergavenny.  Their website and facebook is an endless photo dream gallery of every possible flower combination, in which I have lost many hours browsing.  The school was held in The Angel was the perfect combination.  Walking in was like I had died and gone to heaven...log fire, a host of lovely scented flowers, beautiful classic room decoration and welsh cakes!!

You can view photos of the flower school on their facebook.  It was so useful and I learnt so much.  Their advice will be very valuable in helping myself to choose the flowers and look I would like for our wedding.  I have now been able to draw up a rough list of what I need, although everyone else does seem to think I am mad doing my own flowers.

Above are photos of my creation on the day of flower school, and below is my first attempt on my own.  It was much more difficult without the support, and I had only supermarket flowers and some stuff from the garden, but I was pleased with the results.  Much more practice needed, but I now feel it will be possible, with careful planning.  Thank you Love Lily!
