Floral Fun!

Florals can be so much more than just a bouquet and some centerpieces, they can be integrated into all aspects of your decor. We love seeing our florist friends work alongside our clients to create something fresh, colourful, and totally unique! Every wedding has a beautiful floral piece – it was hard to whittle it down to just this post! But check out a few of our favourites below!

 

Ceremony backdrops are the perfect opportunity to incorporate some florals. No matter what size or shape your backdrop is, florals are a great addition! Brianne & Mark tied the knot in front of this beautiful installation by Platinum Floral Designs on a gorgeous Arbutus tree at Bilston Creek Farm. It was truly breathtaking!

Craig & Will dreamed up a show-shopping ceremony backdrop filled with thousands of real roses that was beautifully executed by Fiddle Head Florals with product from local growers, Eurosa Farms! It looked amazing and smelled delicious! Everyone couldn’t wait to get a photo in front of this masterpiece. The bright pops of roses continued throughout the entire wedding design!

Alana & Creighton brought the outdoors inside with this amazing winter wonderland inspired installation from Platinum Floral Designs. Dried rose petals littered the aisle, two amazing aisle markers sat at the top of the aisle and were repurposed later in the evening for their long table family style dinner. There are no words to describe the amazing arch that stood behind the bride and groom for the ceremony and then over the cake table during the party time!

For Amira & Martin’s September 2018 wedding, we took florals to a whole other level. Their entire wedding took place in Amira’s parent’s gorgeous English style garden and the wedding design was inspired by florals and greenery they were surrounded by. Working with Eiddwen from Cartref Gardens, we added in pops of flowers anywhere possible. From the cake, to the seating chart, guests were in love with the natural beauty of the venue as well as the thoughtful floral filled decor elements!

When your bride is a florist, you know the florals are going to be epic. Lynda from Fleurtacious and her fiancé,  Steve settled on having a New Year’s Eve wedding! Dark and moody, with pampas grass galore! Lynda and her team of flower fairies worked so hard and the result was something we will remember forever! Lynda has been honoured with multiple awards for these incredible florals and installations at both the Vancouver Island Wedding Awards and the BC Wedding Awards.

Maybe installations aren’t your thing and you like things a little more understated. Even bud vases or garlands of greenery can add beauty to a tablescape! For Bergen & Michael’s rustic orchard wedding reception, they wanted the natural beauty of their venue – Bilston Creek Farm – to speak for itself!

For Ajung & Francois’ Bowen Island wedding we incorporated fresh peaches and potted herbs in their celebration! Guests were able to take home both items and while the peaches were likely a perfect morning after cue, many of the herbs have been potted in gardens around BC.

Amee & Matt loved tropical plants and we knew the team at Brown’s the Florist would be able to deliver! Bud vases with tropical greenery lined each table and created a simple yet modern look that complemented the industrial look of The Fort Common perfectly. Amee and her gals carried bouquets filled with tropical Palms and the lush ceremony arch made for the perfect ceremony backdrop!

Jana & Ryan were big fans of succulents and we wanted to incorporate them wherever we could! The succulents, airplants, and beautiful lavender toned florals were the perfect fit for their Pender Island wedding celebration at Poet’s Cove. The best part was that they were able to take them home after the wedding and replant them!

We love colourful florals, white florals, dried florals, tropical florals, any type of floral! The florists on Vancouver Island are so talented and pride themselves on using the best local product. We love dreaming up big ideas and seeing them create the most incredible pieces!!!
