Gorgeous Wild Wedding Flowers Formula

wild wedding flowersSpring is coming. That means blooming flowers and beautiful range of colors to mix and match of wild wedding flowers for wedding bouquets! Florists love this season so much because it gives them a lot of choices to play within letting their creativity come true.

That is also a good thing for you! If you’re planning to get married on Spring, rejoice as you will have so many choices to start with! Come and take a look at some of the best flowers you should use for your wedding bouquets and buttonholes!


The centerpiece is that one flower that takes the center of the stage. The look will make people stare at the beauty of the big piece of flower and the rest of the flowers that just add up to complete the masterpiece. Centerpiece tends to be a giant flower that really stands alone. The typical choice that florists love to use is ranunculus, magnolia, and peonies.

These flowers can be powerful along and you have to find other flowers that will fit their size. If you don’t want to risk it, find centerpieces with mild colors. That’ll be easier to mix and will also make you appear milder and softer.


Buttonholes will be worn by the guys and most of the time, they stand against the dark formal suit. That means you have to find flowers that fit in with your theme but will also stand out and appear luxurious to the guys that wear it.

We’ve come across a lot of ideas. Many of them look cute, yes, but we don’t know if your brothers will appreciate them (and the groomsmen!). If you like mild colors, baby’s breath looks nice enough. Just remember not to use too many because they smell! Quote to this amazing florist on wild wedding flowers, www.briarroseflowers.co.uk.

It’s always better to cut the stem short enough and have the flowers bend over so people can look at the bloom. If that’s hard, you want to cut all the stems and only use the bloom by putting a pin under it. On the other hand, small flowers like baby’s breath can be combined with small leafage to be pinned on the suit. Just remember to not make it too big.

Wedding bouquets shapes and ideas

In the olden days, we used to make wedding bouquets that are ‘neat’. Meaning, the colors have to conform to each other (white with white) and long stems and branches have to be cut off. Well, that’s the olden days.

These days, the most beautiful looking bouquet looks ‘unattended’ to. Meaning they emit the sense of wild wedding flowers as if they were plucked fresh from the field. Which they most probably are. This preserves the natural beauty they bear. With that in mind, it’s okay to create a wild looking bouquet, but also pay attention to the stem and how you will hold to the bouquet later on.

The recent trend is also to use daring colors, such as magenta and dark red (like roses) against plain colors like white. It enhances the beauty of those dark colors and purity of the plain colors.

Rain Photography: Get Wet, Get Playful!

rain photographyRain, the biggest horror of Melbourne wedding photography session. The beautiful view, the clear sky, all gone. It’s seemingly impossible to do anything in this weather, with the bride in her wedding dress and trying to keep it dry.

Well, well, if that’s how you feel, then it’s probably time to change that mindset! Rain is just another chance to hit it right! It gives a ton of ideas to try and use to capture unique images for your couple.

Shoot from indoor

There’s a difference between shooting indoor and shooting outside from indoor. Make sure to get a view of the outside from a window or a door from the inside. Rain gives off a romantic feel to this, as well as warmth when the couple is hugging or cuddling. It falls to how people percept the picture, not how the actual feel is on the set.

You can also save your time to shoot everything indoor first while you wait for the rain to cool down.

Step outside!

That’s right, step outside. Rain is not going to kill you. Have you forgotten how much your mother ranted because you went outside to play in the rain? Such playful mood is achievable with rain, especially on venues with beautiful, green backdrop and a bright weather. Just two kids racing with each other under the rain.

Or maybe you can kick it up a notch? There’s a small peck, a hot kiss, and a hot kiss under the rain. If the bride gets to choose, under the rain will probably something that heats her cheeks up. So, go for it!

On the other hand, for a more casual romantic style, you can get the groom to open his suit and cover the bride with it. Have them stand under a tree to keep less rain out of them both.

Use umbrellas

It’s always a wise thing to do to keep an umbrella before the rain comes. In the case of doing a Melbourne wedding photography session, keep a lot of umbrellas.

You should always have different types of umbrellas that do well with wedding themes, in your car. Keep the dust out of them, mind you. You never know when it will rain and when the theme is going to fit in with the umbrella’s colour.

Also important to remember that you can still shoot several pictures as usual: the little walk across the garden, the staring into each other moment, all while the both or one of them carrying the umbrella.

Play with light

If it’s especially dark, make use of flash and lighting kit to light the necessary parts of the subject and the background. Sometimes, you can leave the background completely dark and highlight on both of the couples. Other times, you can use more lighting kit to spread the light and make at least important feature of the background, like the tree or the décor to remain visible.

Black and white

The grayscale effect becomes very useful in this situation. To create that timeless moment under the rain, make use of black and white effect on pictures that focuses only on the couple with no much revelation of the background. This allows people to focus on only the subject and not be bothered by how many things are in the background.
