Here at Rose&Mary we get a lot of strange requests to incorporate special things into the wedding flowers that have special a meaning to the bride and groom and we always aim to please.
In fact we much prefer to think outside the box when it comes to wedding flowers. So many weddings have lost that individual touch and become one big Pinterest-Top-10 blurr of the same thing all over again, we love a wedding with a difference!
So the lovely Jose contacted me with the request of wedding flowers for a Steam Punk wedding.
She is wearing a black Victorian dress with corset and drapes, blue hair, tattoos, the whole works…
The request was for very soft spring flowers with an edgy use of spikyness to match the Steam Punk Theme.
We used succulents and pine in conjunction with Vuvuzela Roses, Ranonculus, Bleeding hearts, Lysianthus and Hellebores and if you don’t mind me saying so, it looked really nice.
The venue was the stunning Taplow House Hotel in buckinghamshire, a grand victirian Manor House that is now a boutique hotel. It’s crammed with original features and the flowers looked stunning in the light and bright venue.
There is always a risk of bad weather if you get married in March but the sun shone all day and it was a stunning day!
