Bride on the Wild Side

We did a small wedding recently with a bride whose personality was a little on the wild side - getting married for the first time in her 40's, she was more than ready to let her wedding express her taste.

She let me create what I thought would suit her and her gown, and I really think there were no limits to the design, so I had fun! A cascade featuring creamy callas, dendrobium orchids, stock, ornothagalum arabicum, and 'Blushing bride' protea. (How appropriate LOL!)


Here you can see some detail - I used lots of feathers! Several different types - she said to keep things soft, but edgy, so between feathers and a touch of wire, I think we did it.


Her maid of honor's only request was she loved the idea of a wire collar for her bouquet. So we kept it simple with callas and stock and the collar of silver and pearl beaded wire woven with variegated lily grass.

Would love to get to do a few more off-beat brides! Once I got started with this, I generated a whole lot of ideas that are dying to be used!!!
