Right in the middle of the 2017/2018 wedding season we are surrounded by beautiful big florals everywhere we look (including the Khayaam window, created by yours truly)
Recent wedding trends have moved toward less formal arrangements with larger bouquets filled with less traditional flowers such as natives with waratahs, proteas and natural foliage like gum. These are often incorporated with pretty cottage flowers like dahlias, soft open roses and a resurgence of baby’s breath. We are even seeing the inclusion of succulents in bouquets and floral wedding decor in an array of colours and sizes.
