Gerbera Daisies

Gerbera Daisies come in many colours and compared with other popular wedding flowers are a fashionable and affordable alternative.  That aside, they do add a touch of simplicity that every wedding should have.  Placed in a single flute vase as part of your table decoration leaves plenty of room to accompany them with colour co-ordinated candles.

Orchids are the ultimate in exotic flowers and can be incorporated in all aspects of your day.  Not only do they add sophistication to a cascading shower bouquet but make breath-taking centrepieces at your reception.  And not to leave the groom out – a single orchid head makes for the perfect alternative to the traditional buttonhole choices.

Peonies in full bloom are one of the reasons that this type of flower is one of the most sought after when it comes to wedding flowers.  They can work perfectly well amongst an arrangement or as a stand-alone bouquet and can even be presented as thank you gifts.
