An essential book packed with exquisite photographs and amazing floral displays for planning every aspect of the wedding day and beyond, from London's leading floral designer. Paula Pryke taps into the desire of every bride to make her wedding day special, and the choice of flower color, fragrance, and display is one of the most effective and fun ways to do so. She gives the bride the confidence and ability to design her own floral theme and work with a florist to execute it, or perhaps even undertake some of the arrangements herself for a truly personal touch. The book explores wedding traditions as well as suggestions on how a modern bride can depart from them. It addresses every type of seasonal concern; distinguishes decorative, ceremony, and reception flowers; provides great ideas for floral accessories; and, of course, devotes much consideration to the all-important choice of the bouquet. With step-by-step instructions throughout, the book demonstrates how brides, bridesmaids, friends, and family can make some of Pryke's most popular wedding flower arrangements themselves.
