If your wedding dreams are made of clouds of foliage suspended from a ceiling, stems entwined beautifully around a grand staircase or ceremony arch, or a wow factor church doorway of blousy blooms à la Princess Beatrice, then you’ve chosen a great time to get married. Floral design has never been more exciting and, here in Devon, we have some brilliantly talented florists who are adept at creating wow factor arrangements beyond your wildest dreams.

Exeter-based florist Emma Hewlett is passionate about creating floral installations. Here are her top tips for wow-worthy wedding flowers

Be bold. If you’re going to invest your budget on an installation you want it to really stand out.
Consider your venue and access. It’s not always possible to hang flowers in certain places; what’s more, they do take time and ideally need to be done on the morning of the event.
Tone down the table. If you’re creating the wow factor in the sky, consider your table décor – you could really tone down the table flowers. 
Think outside the box. Installations don’t just have to be something hanging from the ceiling – let your florist advise on new and exciting ways to transform your venue.
Summer stems. If you’re getting married in the height of summer, chat with your florist about what’s possible. Don’t snub the offer of a few faux flowers – no one will know when they are high in the ceiling and it allows you to create impact without the fear of flowers wilting in the heat.
Dazzle with dried. Dried florals are a big trend at the moment and great for installation work.
