You’re no doubt keen to know what food you’ll be eating on your wedding day and where its coming from, but do you know where your florals are coming from? Here are some key floral tips on being eco friendly that will also be kind to your budget! Stay in Season The easiest way to keep your wedding green is also one of the most easily forgotten about – ensure you choose locally grown, seasonal flowers. Not only will they be more naturally ragrant and beautiful than blooms flown in from abroad, but they’ll also cost less and will reduce your carbon footprint.
Working again with the incredible Zita Elze and her students attending the Wedding Design – Advanced Master Class, the creations of Noriko Kondo from Japan have been featured on Flowerona: Florist Friday. The student This was the third time Noriko has studied with Zita and she says that: “Every time she pulls out some of my hidden, unknown ‘inside’ emotions to enable me to create beautiful pieces. She’s a true magician. This is the distinctive thing about her course, always! Creativity, surprise and art. The working process is intense and tough but I was proud of myself and happy at the end of the courses every time. These feelings motivate me to go to the next level.” Noriko’s designs featured ranunculus, roses, craspedia, scabious seed heads, eucalyptus and bupleurum. They’re perfect colours for a fresh, spring wedding, wanting to bring the outdoors in with those gorgeous greens.

This post has the wow factor! Drum roll please…for a real flower wedding dress! Back in October I visited Brides The Show in London. I really can’t recommend visiting this show enough. Hosted by Brides magazine, it really is an industry leading show. There is a fabulous array of suppliers, inspiring talks, DIY workshops and the catwalk show is always a work of art. The highly sought after florist, Zita Elze provided a show stopping display, which did in fact bag her the Editor’s Gold Award.
This bridal editorial shoot was for London Bride magazine. Using Kensington Roof Gardens as the location, I wanted to work with the hot colours already there in the Spanish themed gardens.
