Beach Bridal

Instead of a traditional bouquet we suggested our bride carry a large polished nautilus shell from which tumbles intricately woven fine bullion wire and silver tillandsia moss threaded with delicate flower heads. We used ‘Alexine’ spray rose, orchids and hyacinths, which we allowed to open for five days to reach the perfect shade of vintage blue. Champagne fresh water pearls finished the look to combine perfectly with the bride’s champagne satin dress. The bridesmaids carried fragrant bouquets of peonies, delphinium, stocks and roses bound with decorative rope to add a nautical twist.
