Trend 1) The French Connection
A luxurious sensuous look for the sophisticated bride. Flowers are used abundantly in this passionate style, mixing formal Parisian design with French country. The romantic blooms come in soft hues of pastel, with hints of orange and brown and feature classical wedding flowers such as orchids, roses, and hydrangeas.
Trend 2) The Force of Nature
Serene shades of blue and green for the nature-loving bride.
This free, casual, harmonious style creates a peaceful ambiance such as at a rich spa or an oasis. Bundles of mono-botanical flowers like iris, nigella, or scabiosa, combined with the elegance of orchids and hydrangeas, as well as variegated foliage and ferns, provide a calm garden feel.
Trend 3) Modern Wonders
Simple chic lines for the bride looking for a contemporary event.
This style blends the spirit of Asian antiquities with natural elements in simple but strong lines. Unique and vibrant colours come in a rich palette of warm gold, copper, taupe and orange. Tropical flowers like orange anthurium, bromeliad and chocolate coloured cymbidiums bring warmth and simplicity to the bride’s special occasion.
Trend 4) Into The Jungle
For the confident, passionate, bride who follows a call to the wild.
An elegant style expressing a cosmopolitan lifestyle filled with rich experiences, such as the ones we encounter when travelling.
Sun-kissed shades of orange, yellow, and red glisten alongside tropical foliage, mosses, vines, cork, and bamboo. Exotic flowers such as heliconia, leucadendron, celosia, and brunia create the adventure of a tropical jungle.
