FEATURED

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.

I adore the natural look when it comes to wedding flowers. Rustic flowers just look as though they’ve been lovingly put together… for me I think the appeal is seeing flowers which don’t look manufactured. Do you know what I mean? As though they’ve been carefully gathered by a nice person who loves flowers and creating beautiful things (vs. uniform bunches wrapped in cellophane by Interflora or stabbed with diamantes…) with rustic, natural flowers it’s easier to love them back.

I stumbled across the loveliest blog feature by Katie Laura Flowers last month. Katie is a Yorkshire lass who launched her floristry company “so I could delve into the world where design meets nature with flowers & foliages.” She loves twigs, writes with real passion and has a talent for creating textured, luxurious wedding flower designs with a fanciful twist! Katie writes about natural, rustic wedding flowers and shows how she creates a gorgeous bouquet with more character than you can shake a twirly twig at! I love this… over to Katie!
