Love Flowers?

Then why not think beyond bouquets and table displays? Floral installations are a rising trend and the results can be spectacular.

When it comes to wedding flowers, big is often best – especially if you’re talking backdrops! Just think about the striking photo opportunities (and lasting impressions) these beautiful installations would make.

Wonder wall

This glamorous, ombré-inspired wall of roses was created using fragrant garden roses. Be careful to select the right tones and ask for the roses to be cut at the perfect stage of openness. These bloom-hungry displays can be expensive, so incorporate foliage. Keep the focus area toward the top – perfect for photos. Imagine this installation as the backdrop to your main table or your ceremony, or both.

Green goddess

Not mad about flowers? No problem!

A foliage backdrop can be just as striking, especially if you mix textures and add fun lettering or signage as we’ve done here. The contrast of white against green is crisp and timeless. Try using moss as a base and then add leather leaf fern for depth. Or simply use masses of ivy from your garden.

Letterland

Fun, life-sized letters or symbols make a fantastic centrepiece. Use them instead of typical photo booth backdrops and have your friends create memories around a piece of floral art instead! If you’re on a budget, select a larger, less expensive bloom like the Snowdon chrysanthemum or go for layers of foliage.

Garland grace

A simple garland behind your main table will create the perfect photo frame. Keep the garland simple with foliage and a few dynamic blooms. Use at least three different types of foliage to create texture. We used Johannesburg Gold, ruscus – also called butcher’s broom – grevillea, leather leaf and Virginia asparagus fern.
