Bridal Bouquets

Did you know that Victorians invented a language of flowers called floriography? It was used as a means of coded communication through various flowers and floral arrangements, allowing people to express feelings which otherwise could not be spoken.
Today I am sharing with you couple of pictures of the beautiful wedding bouquets I photographed in the past. I don’t think florists were coding some secret messages whiles creating all these beauties, but I am so curious to know the meaning of the flowers Brides selected to be included within their floral arrangements. I truly believe flowers reflect your personality :)
Another interesting fact I came across is that The Greeks were among the first to use flowers in weddings, representing a gift from nature to the bride, groom, and their families. Bridesmaids were in charge of the flower bouquets and garlands and often made poesies (small nosegays) for each guest as a symbol of thanks. Friends, may your everyday Life be always filled with wonderful blossoms and colours. x

P.S If you are getting married in Oundle, Northamptonshire (or surrounding villages) and you are still in search for a Florist, then I would highly recommend to visit our local floral artisans:
