We posed Gemma Wakerley of Booker Flowers & Gifts the following question...

We're having a springtime wedding with a relaxed vibe. How can we reflect our natural theme in our flowers?

Gemma says: We love to use locally-sourced meadow-style flowers for an effortlessly elegant spring wedding. Think ranunculus, parrot tulip and anemones in pretty pastel hues or bright colours if you’re feeling bold.

For a bridal bouquet we’d arrange stems into a loose, hand-tied arrangement with wild foliage, including asparagus fern and pittosporum tied with natural hessian ribbon. For brides wanting an even more effortless look, a simple hydrangea bouquet in fresh or vibrant tones with limited foliage may be your thing.

Arranging loose stems into mismatched jars at varying heights is an inexpensive way to decorate both the top and guest tables when dispersed with mixed foliage and pillar tables to add height. Incorporating dried elements too such as pampas, birch and pussy willow is an easy way of adding texture and drama to your décor.

For those with a larger budget, we love using lush foliage garlands to decorate tables, seating plans and even pew-ends. For colourful couples, adding filler flowers such as tanecetum is a simple and cheerful way of introducing some vibrance.
