The flowers you hold as you walk down the aisle can say a lot about your special day. Judith Palmer asks some of the county florists for tips on the best bouquets

Megan Boon at Swaffham Florist

“A new trend for 2016/17 is the relaxed, front-facing natural design, rather than a traditional structured shape. It showcases the best of seasonal flowers, by using various textures, a variety of foliage and a complementing colour palatte. The best advice we can give couples is never get stuck on just one colour, use different shades and bring in other colours.”

Sophie Smith at Libby Ferris Flowers, Norwich

“Unique textures, rare foliage and pops of colour are sure to create eye-catching bouquets in 2016. With free-form styles still trending, it allows us at Libby Ferris Flowers to explore beautiful designs with the bride that capture her personality, style and dreams. We believe that bespoke and seasonal flowers are best to ensure all wedding blooms are personalised to the finest detail for the special occasion.”

“Free form bridal bouquets are still on trend for 2106. I’m lucky to have the horticultural background and space to grow lots of flowers and foliages, so adding these more delicate, imperfect ingredients give my bouquets an effortless, timeless beauty. Colour palette, texture and forms play a huge part in my design process.”

Sarah Broom At Bramble & Berry, Ashby St Mary,

“We have seen a definite move for brides wanting a more natural, relaxed look for their wedding bouquet and a shift away from the neater, set designs seen in previous years. Asymmetric designs are increasingly popular as are requests for trailing bouquets. The flowers and foliages included are changing too to suit this bouquet style, with brides happy to embrace a mix of seasonal blooms within their chosen colour palette.”

Jo Thomas at Constance Rose,

“I grow the bride’s choice of flowers at my family’s farm in Weston Longville, cutting them where I have a cutting garden and wildflower meadow. It means I can cut them on the day of the wedding, allowing me to create bespoke fresh arrangements, I am also very excited that I have just been nominated for best florist in the UK Wedding Awards.”
