Ah Valentine’s Day! A celebration of love since the 14th Century, St Valentine’s Day is the perfect day for big gestures like Valentine’s bouquets, romantic proposals and of course, weddings. Yes, it’s become over-commercialised in recent years but you can celebrate in your own way and of course, what could be more perfect than exquisite artisan roses? It’s the flower of passion and romance after all. If you’re considering tying the knot this month, we’ve curated some of our favourite Valentine’s Day inspired wedding bouquets to consider in your plans for a chic and stylish celebration. Red roses of course lead the way but we are also embracing some other bold colour choices, which equally say love, romance and passion too!
Classic Red Rose Bouquet
It doesn’t get more classically romantic than a bridal bouquet of luscious velvety red roses. Tess is the perfect choice to make this bold declaration of love. She’s all at once sumptuous, regal and elegant, with perfectly formed rosettes that open to reveal a small cluster of golden stamens. The key to styling Tess in a chic and contemporary red rose bouquet, is gathering her in an artful cluster rather than a dated neat dome shape, and pairing with a demure dress to offset her seductive nature.
Bold Modern Pink and Red Rose Wedding Flowers
Fancy a twist on the classic red rose bouquet? Add in pops of hot pink to create a modern bridal bouquet that feels fresh and bold. Valentine’s weddings are great for incorporating bright colours that evoke passion and romance, in tonal shades from blush to burgundy. At David Austin, our Valentine’s roses include Tess, and Darcey, which bring drama and class, while vibrant pink Capability adds a flirty feminine touch.
Wild and Romantic Wedding Bouquet
If you’re a creative bride, how about combining different tones, shapes and textures of flowers for a one-of-a-kind artful bouquet that is as unique as you? The captivating shades of David Austin Wedding Roses, from Constance in multi-toned blush to Edith in old rose gold and sunset apricot, are perfect for creating painterly bouquets that feel wildly romantic and refreshingly modern.
Soft Pink Ombre Rose Bridal Bouquet
If you’re an old romantic at heart, who loves a good romcom and were dreaming of your wedding day long before the proposal, what could be more perfect than a gathering of soft pink roses to create a beautifully feminine pink ombre bouquet? From our palest blush roses like Eugenie, Purity and Keira to the watercolour tones of Constance and pillowy candy-pink Miranda, the fluttering petals, delicate hues and heavenly scents combine to make a bouquet fit for a modern fairy-tale.
