Five of our Favourite… Wedding Bouquets

Looking for inspiration for your wedding bouquet? We’ve picked five favourites and asked the talented Scottish florists behind them what inspired them.

From seasonal florals and fragrant foliage to designs inspired by a sense of place, there’s lots to get your creativity flowing here. Plus ideas for those of you with allergies and aversions to particular blooms too!

And if you’re feeling stuck, our WFILfam florists will be more than happy to chat through your plans and make suggestions too.

What inspired you? 

I loved creating this bouquet for Georgie because she was so in tune with the season, we were able to use mostly glorious seasonal florals in warm rich vivid tones from Rosie at Scottish Cut Flowers and beautiful fragrant foliage. Loved the wispy grasses which added a lightness to it even though it was bursting with flowers.

What flowers/greenery did you use?

We used a mix of roses, cosmos, amaranth, grasses, eucalyptus, dahlia, carnations and probably a few more I can’t recall!

How did it tie in with the couple’s day?

They wanted an autumnal vibe for their Coos Cathedral wedding, so we settled on a selection of deep, rich coppers, rusts, and terracotta tones, as well as some emerald greens and natural greens. So I think the bouquet was a celebration of everything that we brought together for the day.




Why did you love creating it?

This was my first bouquet to create between two lockdowns.  I remember feeling really quite emotional about creating Paloma’s bouquet – not only for the sigh of relief to be back to what I love doing but because autumn is my favourite season. That full, lush, flopsy bunny (good technical term!) style is my go-to bouquet look. Paloma was such a wonderful bride who was happy to take our lead on seasonal choice so we squeezed in as many favourites and textures as we could!

What flowers/greenery did you use?

Greenery – Maple / Seeded Eucalyptus / Garrya Elliptica/ Oak / baby Blue Eucalyptus

Berries – Viburnum / Hyperican / Scabiosa / Skimmia

Flowers – Spray Roses / Amaranthus / Dahlia / Garden Roses / Hydrangea / Eryngium

How did it tie in with the couple’s day?

Paloma and Ross were married at The Balmoral Hotel in October. We filled fireplaces and tables with as much autumn botanical goodness as we could to bring in the season. This tied in well to the venue’s decadence and linen choices. We then finished all the details with burgundy ribbons to tie in to those deep rich wine berries throughout the flowers.

What inspired you? 

I loved creating it as it is unusual to get someone who just wants greenery and a bit of challenge to make sure there is lots of different texture, interest and focal areas which you might normally get from flowers.

What flowers/greenery did you use?

I used all Scottish grown foliage and grasses with hellebore seed heads so I was able to fulfil the brief in a sustainable way. Win win!

How did it tie in with the couple’s day?

This was an interesting one, the couple both suffered from allergies so we agreed on a bouquet without any actual flowers. I love the way that it looks and was delighted to be given the opportunity to make this style of bouquet.

Why did you love creating it?

Kendall’s main request was not to include roses so we were able to use some of our all time favourite elements. It can be a bit of a challenge when a bride would like a soft blousy feel for their bouquet without using roses and outwith peony season but we do LOVE a challenge! Enter stage left – the beautiful ranunculus! We also included some lovely textured eustoma, snowberries and beautiful soft fern and eucalyptus throughout.

What flowers/greenery did you use?

Ranunculus, Eustoma, Veronica, Snowberries, Ammi, Freesia, Eryngium, Echinops, Eucalyptus and Fern.

How did it tie in with the couple’s day?

Kendall and Caleb are from Canada and were having an intimate wedding at Riddle’s Court on the Royal Mile. The flowers had a Scottish feel and we created a wee spin on the traditional.

Why did you love creating it?

Everything was so joyous – the colours, the scent, the fact it was all from locally, Scottish grown and UK grown flowers and foliage. Marion and Jack, and their families were such a joy to work with throughout the process. Always so friendly. Making her bouquet, full of the best seasonal flowers, made me feel happy. And it was wonderful to have Marion’s trust in my skills and use of seasonal flowers.

What flowers/greenery did you use?

So many! Peonies were our focal flower – wonderful coral and pale pinks, then also iris, lupins, foxgloves, alliums, spirea, valerian, cornflowers, nigella, lady’s mantle, candelabra primulas, catmint and gypsophila Covent Garden.

Only a touch – we wanted lots of florals and colour. A touch of birch and ivy,  and also a sprig of rosemary, for scent and also for its connection with remembrance. And also a touch of mint for a fresh scent too.

How did it tie in with the couple’s day?

All of the flowers for Marion and Jack’s day were colourful, seasonal – a true celebration of the moment and the place for their wedding day and vows – and Marion’s bouquet used the best of the seasonal flowers I sourced for their day. It was playful and full of joy, and I think this reflected the feel of their day – so much laughter and joy shared between their friends and family.
