Wedding Flowers Cornwall & Devon

Wed's guide to flowers: rustic

Revel in the wild beauty of rustic wedding flowers


If your W-day vision is one of rustic romance with wild flowers scattered throughout your venue and person, then wedding world's current crush with the au naturel look will serve up some fabulous ideas to suit.

Especially in-keeping with the seasons, rustic floristry tends to have a free, freshly-picked aesthetic, featuring whatever the time of year yields, such as yellow sunflowers and scented garden roses for summer, hedgerow finds for Spring and Autumn's rich array of Amaryllis and berries.

Texture is a key component, with a fusion of fresh and dried flowers in a variety of tones and/or colours all adding to the appeal. A mixture of foliage, grasses, thistles and succulents interwoven with oh-so pretty petals smacks of woodland style, while everything from pastels to darker tones can be used to create a beautifully bespoke rustic theme, wherever your venue.

Imagine giant floral hanging hoops suspended from the ceiling or attached to the wall, bouquets and buttonholes of burnt orange and ruby red wound with string, 'messy' wreaths decorating doors, tabletops and venue/ceremonial spaces, and bunting replaced by hanging flowers to flaunt the outdoors-indoors impact.

Then there's the bride. Floral crowns, head bands and hair vines all accentuate the look, seamlessly creating a trail of blooms between person and place as stylish as it is memorable.

We've asked Cornwall and Devon's talented florists to share some of their favourite rustic flower arrangements and ideas...
