Botanical / boho / coastal / unstructured / wild … there’s a few ways of describing this gorgeous way of styling wedding flowers, which features lots of textural foliages and a few specific blooms.
Some of our recent botanical creations have focussed on white and green, this is forever a favourite colour combo at japonica. Flowers are defined in this style of bouquet, they have their place and really do pop. When clustered together the effect can be just one big fluffy ball, of sorts, but botanical styling allows each stem to shine!
Janice’s bouquet featured anemone, ranunculus, queen anne’s lace, delphinium, camellia and leptospermum. Each stem is carefully placed using the design principles of proportion, scale, balance, unity, emphasis and rhythm. Image (above) jasoncorrotophoto.com
We collaborated with lovely photographer Sara Kiyork for a Northern Beaches vintage inspired photo shoot. Whilst this bouquet is more clustered it still has an unstructured boho feel, primarily due to the inclusion of pieris and peppercorn. Sweet pea and ranunculus are placed randomly, whist buxus gives some definition.
Meg’s bouquet included lush peonies, daisy chrysanthemum, delphinium, and a hint of babies breath, with eucalyptus, geebung, and camellia. Large, but not over the top, this style of bouquet is a statement piece.
Botanical boho – as we like to describe it – will be big this Summer and beyond. It suits current wedding trends and luxe, yet relaxed styling. We love it!
