Here are some shots taken over the weekend!
I helped a couple from our church with their wedding flowers and it was a lot of fun. The wedding couple met in London as students (like my husband and I) and so they decided on a british theme.
The couple wanted the wedding to be quirky and fun. So the bride had this idea to use tin cans for the flowers. The groom's father managed to rummage up more than 60 tin cans from the coffee shop that he drinks kopi (coffee) at everyday. Wasn't that sweet? So we had more than we needed.
In the end, I made 22 arrangements for the pews, 1 for the welcome table, 1 for the signing table, 1 for the podium, 4 boutonnieres, 5 bridesmaids bouquets and 1 bridal bouquet.
Phew! It was quite a big job.
My biggest flower job ever.
I was exhausted but I was really glad that the bride loved the flowers.
My favorite arrangement was actually the bridesmaids bouquets but I forgot to take a photo so I will have to wait till the official photos are out to share that photo with you.
I must say that I really loved how the flowers turned out. Having worked on a few weddings now, I felt a little more emboldened to veer from the norm and to try something slightly new.
So it was my first time, making boutonnieres and I was excited about incorporating flowers with Gift Wrapsody pins.
I also experimented with flowers that were less common and suited the bride's personality and taste. This was more challenging (and risky) but also satisfying to see how pleased she was with her bouquet.
It was really fun to work on the different arrangements too. I like to mix and match the arrangements so that they didn't look entirely the same. That in itself was a challenge too but a lot of fun.
Well, what do you think?
Do you like the how the flowers turned out?
