Using Fresh flowers in bridal hair

I love to incorporate fresh flowers into bridal hair, it was huge last year and, I'm pleased to say, still very much on trend this year with relaxed boho, vintage and festival themes being so popular.  Even if the bride opts for something more jewellery orientated,  fresh flowers make a great choice for Bridesmaid's.

       Gyp is very easy to come by and works perfectly as it has a woody stem so is really easy to poke in to an 'up do'.  Freesias and Miniature Roses also work really well. A florist can wire and tape these flowers to make them easier to use and also hold a little moisture which is an advantage on hot  summer days,  however,  I have often got away with just pinning them.

A beautiful option for a bride is a flower crown like this one
It looks so colourful and is very comfortable to wear.

Wedding season has officially started once again with the Easter Bank holiday weekend being really busy for me.  On Thursday I attended to a beautiful bride Lucy and her four lovely bridesmaids and mum. Lucys Gorgeous make-up was by and her amazing flowers were from

Lucy's four gorgeous Bridesmaids

Beautiful Bride Lucy

Lucy married at Stoke by Nayland Golf Club and got ready for her wedding in one of the gorgeous lodges there. I have worked inside the lodges a few times now,  and I have to say that I can highly recommend them to any bridal party looking for somewhere really special to stay the night before.
Very large bright and airy rooms with stunning outside space for photos, Each lodge has a fully equipped kitchen and extremely well appointed bathrooms.  Lucy's wedding did actually take place at Stoke-by-Nayland, however the Lodges make a great place to stay for many other local venues such as The Talbooth and Dove Barn
