This term is wedding flowers. I was pretty excited about doing it, especially as me and James have been in deep conversation about our own wedding hopefully next year. I was keen to get started a learn some more about flowers and ways they can be used in weddings. being a huge fan of flowers I am hoping for lots of arrangements for the big day.
The first week was buttonholes. I have used the techniques needed for this before so I found it quite easy.
I was rearing to go for the second week. We were making a corsage.
Definitely harder than the first week. Every leaf and flower you see here was wired individually, it took ages but I was really pleased with the finished design.
I wasn't too keen on the bow, we were told to add it into the arrangement but I left mine out, I just preferred it without.
The third week has so far been my favourite week. I loved the flowers we used, the colours and the final design. I love it.
It is a pew end. Could also be used as a table centre piece though, I quite liked it on our dinner table. A favourite by far.
And finally week five. A bridesmaid's pomander. I quite enjoyed this one, surprisingly simple, and it came together pretty quickly too.
I'm loving having this one hanging on my bed at the moment. It looks so pretty. Not a bad sight to wake up to of a morning :)
We have got 2 weeks off now, so there won't be any more photos of flowers for a couple of weeks, unless I find the time to make something at home. I doubt it, I'm struggling with time at the moment, but I'm working on it so you never know, watch this space.
