Bloom Fleuriste for Katie & Ben at Compton Verney

When Katie and Ben told me they were struggling to find a florist with a natural yet modern style, I knew we were going to get on well as it was the exact same problem that inspired me to become a florist during my own wedding planning. Katie had firm likes and dislikes on flowers, which I really welcome generally as it helps to narrow down the options and really understand the look clients want to achieve.

The palette was pink, lots of pink, from the palest blush to the brightest cerise. Katie wanted unusual flowers among some classics like David Austin roses and eucalyptus, in a loose natural style that felt stylish and unique. Katie and Ben’s floral designs really show the impact of a single colour palette, particularly against the stark white backdrop of Adam Hall at Compton Verney. Variety, tone and texture are particularly important when working with a limited palette, and I maxed this out with a cocktail of fluffy, furry, spiky, soft, feathery and whispy blooms in many shades of pink. Finally, I added David Austin’s hot pink ‘Kate’ rose for a special touch. Delicious.

Moodboard Monday: Feelin’ hot hot hot

Hot pink is a love it or hate it kinda hue, but I think it all comes down to what you pair it with. It’s undoubtedly a difficult colour to wear without looking like a seven-year-old disco dancer, but just see how chic that blonde looks below by toning down the neon with a chic nude coat and knit.

In flower world, there’s so many yummy hot pink blooms that we’re spoilt for choice. From roses and carnations (they’re making a come back, honest) to peonies, rannunculus and our all time favourite – the weird and wonderful celosia.

Celosia is just mind blowing, both the cristata variety (in the bouquet up there in the header) that looks like a brain and the argenta (bottom right) standing up right and demanding to be noticed. Are you a fan of hot pink or is it all a bit OTT?
