Composing a Floral Arch

One of my favourite wedding flower features is the Floral Arch. It can really transform a space and makes a wonderful frame for photographs. At a recent wedding at Hampton Manor in Solihull, a couple creatively utilised our floral arch set up to decorate both their Ceremony and Wedding Breakfast.

BEFORE: Here the frame of the arch can be seen as I tinker with the garland runners. The naturalistic frame is made of Silver Birch trunks secured in weighted bases. The decorative elements are added once the frame is in-situ.

Here I have added the decorative display elements, along with an ivy garland.

AFTER: Ta-da! A Happy Florist!


After the wedding party left the ceremony space and convened in the beautiful Elizabeth Court, we very quickly moved the Floral Arch to frame the happy couple at the top table of their Wedding Breakfast.
