I love arriving at a wedding preparation location and finding out what type of bridal bouquet I’m going to see as there are so many styles, colours and flowers to choose from – and as with weddings, no two bouquets are ever the same! The season, personal favourites, colour co-ordination and many other factors are what help brides decide on the type of flowers they choose for their bouquets but I’ve also photographed bouquets made of other materials, a couple of which you’ll see here.
As well as the standard photograph of the bride holding her bouquet, I always get some shots of the bouquet on its own, set in locations that really bring out the colours and delicacy of the florists’ creation.
So, following on from a recent blog post about my favourite wedding cakes, please enjoy this short voyage through some of the most stunning bridal bouquets I’ve had the pleasure to photograph…
Robyn chose these flowers to match with her and Jamie’s classic wedding day in Royston. Timeless and elegant, these flowers made a fantastic accessory for Robyn’s stunning antique-styled wedding dress
More peonies for this bouquet from a farm/marquee wedding in the country. I chose this location to allow a juxtaposition of the soft delicate flowers against the industrial background of the farm building
A rainbow of colours and an eclectic mix of flowers for the bridesmaids’ bouquets
This was a bouquet for an autumnal wedding on a farm and I think it was simply stunning with its riot of colour and mix of flowers and berries
