If you’ve been mooching around Pinterest or Instagram looking for ideas for your wedding flowers, you won’t have missed all the gorgeous hanging flowers. It’s such a fabulous way to create an instant wow factor and massive visual impact that it’s not surprising so many couples are asking for them now. The Foxgloves and Roses team has created a fair few of them, each of them completely bespoke, so that they suit both the couple’s style and the venue itself. Here are some of them. Which do you like the most?
Created for an boho-style summer party at The Perch in Binsey, Oxford, this upside-down hanging flower creation really set the scene for the occasion.
The picture below goes to show just how different a wedding venue can look depending on how it is decorated. It’s of another hanging flower installation at The Perch. This time the theme was ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and the installation in based on hoops of foliage and gorgeous white paper star lanterns.
For a winter wedding reception in a private barn we created a stunning three metre long hanging flower installation with white and blush flowers and trailing winter greenery. Along the underside we hung jam jars with candles so that in the evening there would be little twinkles of light.
For an Anglo-Indian wedding at Rousham House, with a colourful, tropical theme, we created a fabulous 20 metre long hanging rope of flowers. The rope was covered in tropical leaves and bright flowers hung from colourful ribbon. It truly was a show-stopper!
Hanging globes are another take on the hanging flowers concept. This one was created for a wedding with a wild hedgerow theme. It made it’s first appearance outside the Church and then made an encore suspended above the tables in the marquee.
Sometimes it’s possible to create hanging flowers by make floral additions the chandeliers and this is something we often do for weddings at Ardington House.
Hanging flowers are such a modern, different and creative way to incorporate flowers into wedding styling. You’re only limited by your imagination and your florists’ head for heights!
