We posed Jane Taylor of Maddison Rocks the following quesiton...

I’d love an alternative to a fresh flower bouquet. What can you suggest?

Jane says: There are so many routes you can go down for your bouquet from artificial fabric flowers, dried florals, paper blooms, floral hoops and those made from an eclectic mix of quirky, cool elements. Some of my more elaborate bouquet designs have musical and light-up elements, such as an illuminate candelabra and flashing disco ball. I even have a bouquet that blows bubbles! Many of my clients come to me with very specific ideas and themes and by working closely with them, I’m able to create floral sculptures full of unique and individual elements that tell a visual story of their lives and love for each other.

Choosing non-fresh flowers also gives you the flexibility of being able to order blooms that may be out of season on your big day. It also allows you to select specific colours and gives you the further option of taking your bouquet with you should you wish to elope. Best of all, when the wedding is over you’re left with a beautiful, everlasting, visual keepsake of your day, which can remain on permanent display.
