A Winter wedding bouquet

From the first conversation I had with Alyson about her wedding in December , I knew we’d get along. We spoke about wild arrangements with foliage , seed heads and twigs. The wedding was at Clare College, Cambridge and it provided the perfect back drop to wild, wintery arrangements.

As you can see from the photo above, Alyson’s bouquet was a mixture of ferns, foliage, seed heads including small white spray roses to lift the bouquet . I made it quite large with a horizontal spreading look which worked very well. Please see below for the ingredients of the bouquet .
