Joanna’s Bright Botanical Bouquet

by | Jul 18, 2018

When Joanna sent me a message enquiring about a bouquet for her vow renewal, I instantly knew I would love creating it for her! Not only did she provide a Pintrest board of inspiration, but also a brilliant brief – bold, bright and zany!


Read on to find out all about it’s creation. 

We started by narrowing down what kind of flowers made Joanna say ‘Oooooooo’, and quickly realised she was drawn to my botanical range. Being a shorty like myself, Joanna didn’t want to be be overwhelmed by a massive bouquet, but definitely wanted to make a statement.

I advised her on the different shapes of bouquets I make, and we opted for a spray style. Spray style bouquets are a little wild, bold and packed full of texture – perfect!

Next I sent through a mix of felt samples for Joanna to pick her colours, and she selected the flower types she loved from my flower range. Joanna wanted to reflect the red roses she had in her original bridal bouquet ten years ago, so I whipped up some two tone felt swirls and they worked wonderfully against the dark cabbage rose, sunflower and white lisianthus. With the additional of ranunculus and lavender, foliage and extra long trailing ribbons, this bespoke bouquet really packed a punch!

The flowers I hand crafted for Joanna included:

  • Sunflowers
  • Lisianthus
  • Ranunculus
  • Daisies
  • Swirls
  • Cabbage Roses
  • Lavender

What did Joanna think about her Bright Botanical Bouquet?

“With my new hair colour and against backdrop of a white/cream broderie anglaise short dress it makes the bouquet look vintagey and boho. Perfect!” Joanna Mockford

And we couldn’t leave out the Mr! Having seen the two tone red felt swirls, he opted to have a buttonhole to match Joanna’s bright botanical bouquet. I teamed it with some of the ivy coloured leaves from Joanna’s bouquet, and it looked great.
We are absolutely blown away by the flowers. The photos couldn’t capture how delicate it all is and the colours are spot on for my look. Joanna Mockford
