I’ve made it no secret I have a ‘thing’ for messy wedding bouquets. I love seeing brides with armfuls of beautiful blossoms – and the statement bouquet is BIG for 2015. When lovely Gwenda from The Vintage Floral Design Co. got in touch I was in heaven! Her bouquets are divine: ‘informally structured’, creative and full of colour, texture and foliage.

Gwenda works creatively with flowers of all shapes and sizes to design statement bouquets for vintage inspired weddings with a boho feel. She says, “My signature style has been decribed as ‘new wave’ vintage; leaning towards the boho aesthetic; using seasonal blooms which are given a modern touch in terms of style, colour and composition – never mundane, always beautiful.”
