As it's #BritishFlowersWeek, we've been busy daydreaming about beautiful blooms here at Save the Date Magazine HQ and with that in mind, we're focusing on fabulous floral installations. We're having a natter with some of our wonderful florists from our Cream of the Crop Wedding Directory, as they're offering their expert advice on how floral installations and displays can transform your wedding day. From ceremony archways to raised centrepieces, it's time to get your fix of floral wedding inspiration...
Elder & Wild

When it comes to wild, rambling blooms for your big day, look no further than Elder & Wild. Becky says, “Large floral installations make bold statements. Use bigger floral pieces to draw the eye to important points, for instance at the end of the aisle to frame the ceremony or above the dance floor to fill the space.”

Laura & Scott at Avant Garden Weddings love nothing more than a floral installation or two! “Make the most of the areas of your venue that you love and make displays from the key focal areas, such as your ceremony space, guest tables, top table and cake table. They are viewed throughout the day and will make the most impact.”

The lovely team at Jo Beth Floral Design know a thing or two about beautiful blooms and told us, “when thinking about your floral installations, consider changes in the height of designs to make the room look bigger. If you have a limited budget, focus on one wow factor design and move it from the ceremony room to the reception.”

A contemporary and creative wedding florist, Gillian of Where Bees Meet recommends to look at the way you can use statement floral installations in more than one setting. “This can include tall statement arranges at the top of your aisle and either side of your ceremony table. You can then move these details into the room for your wedding breakfast.”

We adore working with Kerry at Tineke Floral Designs, a multi award-winning florist in Derbyshire. “We adore using foliage for floral installations. We used it from Ellen & Ben’s wedding, with an abundance of it with trailing garlands galore. From the church archway to suspended chandeliers. The eucalyptus scent filled the marquee!”.

Established in 2011, Sophie’s Flower Company uses nature to inspire her floral designs. “I seem to be drawn to crate installations that are natural in styling, suitable to the seasons. I used mainly British flowers for this archway, with beautiful four-foot fox gloves.”
