In today’s post we want to share some foliage wedding ideas to inspire your greenery wedding theme…
Greenery may have been the Pantone Colour of the Year 2017, but in our eyes, it never goes out of style. We love using foliage in our floral designs - a way to make luxury less traditional and more contemporary. Our very own Miriam Faith florist, Kirsty, even opted for a foliage wedding theme and we often select ferns, herbs, leaves, grasses, succulents and shrubs to create a full finish amongst our favourite flowers.
From bouquets to buttonholes, centrepieces to Chuppahs, hanging installations to hair crowns and signage to stationery, the possibilities are endless. With the options to go full foliage, add just a few special flowers or use it to tie everything together, it’s also possible to create designs that are multi-purpose - a great way to continue the theme throughout your ceremony and reception.
It’s not just all green either. Silver and blue-toned foliage looks magical, and the different shades of green from tropical and British selections make each design stand out from every angle. One of the reasons we love using it is that foliage adds different tones and textures, bringing depth and movement - a stylish alternative to more expensive all-flower arrangements.
For the nature-loving couple, the organic options transform the indoor or outdoor venue into a fresh, luscious space through creating subtle touches or statement pieces. We thrive when enhancing the natural setting; whether that’s using evergreen Eucalyptus amongst metallics along the table of a Luxe Asian Fusion wedding, decorating hoops with Asparagus Fern and Italian Ruscus for the most romantic shoot we’ve ever done, suspending vines and Birch branches with tea lights and photographs as an escort card table for a modern Winter wonderland wedding, creating backdrops of Monstera leaves, Aralia and Tree Fern on a copper frame as a show-stopping wall behind the happy couple, or adding a few nods to the theme here and there.

The great thing about foliage is that it can be as wild or paired back as you would like it to be. While we have our favourites (like the Stock flower - a highly fragrant choice with the hidden meaning of enjoying life and eternal love/beauty), we work closely with you to find what you like, want and need - creating something truly unique and unforgettable. So if you would like to find out more about how we can help you to create your dream wedding/event through floral design, why not get in touch today?
