We asked Diana Critchell of Flowers of Foxhall how to reflect the fresh feeling of springtime in wedding flowers. Read on to find out what wisdom she had to impart...
"You can evoke the carefree airy feeling of the season in your wedding flowers whatever your chosen style. It’s more of a mood than a theme. Spring blooms are a magical mix of delicate textures, sublime colours and symbolism. For example, tulips represent perfect love. In addition to beauty, spring flowers have an abundance of scent, which you’ll forever remember.
Think about choosing flower varieties that are available only during the spring. There are more than you think with plenty of unusual options too such as fritillaria, muscari and jasmine. Make the most of the seasonality as this is when they’ll be in prime condition, better value for money and more sustainable.
For the pure essence of spring, choose vibrant colours such as crisp white, sunny yellow, zingy lime green and sky blue. Alternatively, embrace delicate pastel shades of palest pink, lilac and peach for a gentle romantic feel. Think light textured foliage, delicate branches of blossom, mimosa and trailing jasmine. There’s a spring answer to any style. A wrap of pure white tulips for a classic look, to a riot of colour and texture using lilac, ranunculus, clematis and anemone for a boho feel.
Why not incorporate planted spring bulbs into your table centres, tucked into wooden creates or vintage glassware? Guests can take these home at the end of the eventing to plant in their own gardens and remember your day."
