TOP TIP: Using fragrant flowers and herbs in your wedding bouquet and arrangements will evoke memories later in life – to remind you of your wedding day! Not only do fresh or dried herbs look and smell amazing, but they also can symbolize just the sentiment you need for your upcoming marriage. During the Victorian era, the herbs a bride carried held serious meaning: lavender stood for luck and devotion, rosemary for remembrance, sage for a long life and thyme for courage.

‘One of my closest friends Fiona who runs Fifi Boutique created all of the floral arrangements, foliage décor, buttonholes, bridesmaid bouquets, chapel displays, pew ends and bridal bouquet. She understood my vision exactly and everything turned out better than I could ever have imagined. We ordered everything from Triangle Nursery, which arrived a couple of days before the wedding day and everyone pitched in to help Fiona put it all together. I can’t thank Fiona enough for working so hard on it, she was amazing and the arrangements truly made our day and brought my vision to life.’
