One-on-one advice and guidance gives Brides complete confidence in choosing Wedding flowers. Ceremony Flowers usually consist of blousy ivory roses, cream scented stocks, white oriental lilies and English garden foliage. Libba loves the use traditional English country garden flowers and foliage for wedding ceremonies.
Most brides like to keep continuity from the church flowers, through to the reception flowers. But Libba can create more of a party ambience at the venue with innovative floral design and clever use of containers. For example, a bride could substitute the traditional ivory roses and salal in oasis with whacky cerise pink gloriosa lilies in a fish bowl caged in steel grass. Or the use of vintage tea-set crockery with fluffy peonies and alchemilla in jam jars is on trend this summer.
