A Floral Introduction – Keira

A Floral Introduction – Keira

Keira is the ultimate pink wedding rose. Delightfully feminine with blousy marshmallow petals, this beautiful blush rose brings elegance to a myriad of different wedding styles, from classic to rustic, vintage to contemporary.

Keira is uniquely unpredictable in colour, ranging from pale blush to raspberry rippled with cream, making each rose totally individual and different in tone. She is the perfect addition to a pink rose bouquet and stands out from any other pink wedding flowers, with her stunning cupped rosette and delicious fragrance of myrrh with hints of almond, marzipan and vanilla.

What other roses does Keira work well with?

Keira is easily dressed up to bring a touch of glamour to your wedding and looks particularly chic paired with white David Austin roses like Purity and Patience. The soft tone of Keira also compliments peachy Juliet and playful Constance for a gorgeous cloud of fluffy sorbet shades that feels delightfully lush and flamboyant.

Pink and green complement each other like black and white, so foliage plays a key role in showing off Keira’s pretty pink hue. Soft greens, like eucalyptus, dusty miller (Senecio cineraria) and lamb’s ear (Stachys byzantina), bring muted greyish tones that work well for a mellow colour palette, while brighter greens, such as emerald Italian ruscus or lime guelder rose (Viburnum opulus) create more contrast for a fresh verdant look.

How can I use Keira roses in my wedding flowers?

Keira is a very versatile rose and can suit a range of different wedding styles. Paired with elegant crystal compotes or metallic accessories, such as silver candelabra or mercury glass vases, she is perfectly at home in a luxe wedding set in a hotel ballroom or grounds of a stately home. Statement rose trees are a big wedding trend for 2022 and Keira is the perfect addition to create a blousy romantic look to totally wow your guests.

Meanwhile, brides who prefer a more relaxed aesthetic will find that she looks heavenly with wayward meadow-style flowers, which perfectly suit less formal venues such as converted barns and marquees. Styled with seasonal blooms overflowing from an assortment of vintage vases or repurposed vessels like enamel pitchers and ceramic marmalade pots, gives Keira a glorious just-picked rustic look.

How can I use Keira in a pink rose wedding bouquet?

Whether used alone or styled with a variety of seasonal flowers, you really can’t go wrong with featuring Keira in your bridal bouquet. The perfect shade of pale pink, Keira is the ideal focal flower to bring playful femininity to traditional neat bridal posies as well as wild freeform designs full of movement and character.

We love Keira styled with fragrant sweet peas, delicate astrantia and feathery astilbe for a gorgeous natural bohemian-style bouquet overflowing with scent and texture. Classic brides may prefer her paired with cloud-like white hydrangea and fluffy ranunculus for an understated elegant look.

A simple posy of Keira makes a dreamy pink rose bouquet for bridesmaids, finished with trailing hand-dyed silk ribbons that billow in the breeze. She also makes an elegant wrist corsage and hair decoration, whether a single rose pinned into a chic chignon or part of a bohemian flower crown worn with loose beachy waves. Don’t forget to add Keira to your wedding cake to tie in all the colours together.
