Wedding flowers have changed – I could dive into a bouquet these days and live there for a week: the organic and creative florals I see on blogs are out of this world.

My most recent discovery is the fabulous Forage & Blossom – and I asked lovely Alice to tell us a little about her world. It’s all kinds of enchanting…


Forage and Blossom by name and by nature.

I’m Alice, the founder of Forage and Blossom Flowers. I am a floral designer with an artistic background inspired by all things organic, off-beat and botany based.

My designs are influenced by the wild forms of the natural world and I like to bring in depth with scent, foliage and texture. I love to embrace the natural kinks and flairs of flowers and allow the blooms to flaunt themselves. If a flower has a particularly weird bend in its stem, its a definite keeper! I enjoy creating designs with natural fluidity and movement; each arrangement is as unique as the flowers within it.


Strong colours in a wedding theme look fantastic. Red and blue are rich, exciting tones which give a brilliant contrast to the delicate whites and pastels of traditional weddings. This wedding day is a stunner – with a gorgeous bride, a blissfully happy groom and an overwhelmingly happy atmosphere to the whole day. And those colours make it extra fabulous.

The bride and groom are Sara and Rich, and they were married this spring in Mayfair, London. The venue is Dartmouth House – a sixteenth century mansion house with a courtyard and fountains to give the atmosphere of a chateau terrace – it’s a great location for a chic city wedding.
