In this McQueens video, Imogen creates a gorgeous classic bridal hand-tied bouquet with care and attention to detail. The design is created using a combination of pale pink, lilac roses and hydrangea. We have a dedicated team that create flowers for weddings and events and it’s always such a privilege to create flowers for someone’s big day
‘Autumnal weddings are becoming more and more popular each year and they always have a very romantic feel. It’s a lovely time to tie the knot – couples are free from the stress of having perfect weather, and it’s often a less busy time of year so they can really make the most of the occasion. Although we create gorgeous wedding themes using flowers more typical of the season, we still love working on weddings with a more classic colour palette, and pink is a very popular colour all year round,’ McQueens florist Imogen explains.
‘I love this design. It’s very romantic and the combination is perfect for a romantic wedding. This style is abundant and full of flowers and I loved making it and contributing to such a special day! Working on weddings and events is extraordinarily busy but we always allocate plenty of space and time to create the bridal bouquet and every florist, regardless of how experienced you are, feels a degree of pressure to get it absolutely right. The wedding bouquet is a big focus during the ceremony, and will be featured in all of the wedding pictures so it’s very important that we get it right. We order roses that we use in wedding bouquets a few days in advance so that they are at the correct degree of maturity and perfectly timed to look their best on the big day. The best thing about working on wedding flowers is seeing the reaction of the bride when they see the flowers. We get to know the brides throughout the consultation process, so seeing that look of joy on their faces when they first lay eyes on their bouquet is a magic moment for us,. We always do our best to make sure we exceed expectations for such a special day.’
