From time to time we get requests for things that aren’t in season – this particular bride really wanted to have large, large peonies – which aren’t available until October usually, and they also would love hydrangea, which are traditionally best during the warmer months – so the solution, by request, is a bouquet mixing real and artificial flowers. Have a look at the result and see what you think:

We think it’s pretty lovely, and in the photographs it will look superb. Everything in the bouquet is fresh real flowers except for the peonies and hydrangea.

The trick is using quality silk flowers, and combing them with complimentary real flowers. Here the real flowers we have used are roses, freesias, lisianthus, green sim carnations, green hypericum, as well as some ming/retro fern and other foliage.
